LISTING SEASON IS UPON US!
Listing season is fast approaching and if you are a buyer or a seller you need to be prepared in advance. How far in advance? March and April are great times to prepare! Here's why:
If you are Selling a home:
Each home, neighborhood, and neighborhood market is unique. This is the time to understand what is available for sale in your neighborhood. As your agents we personally like to visit the homes for sale on your street right before we list to ensure the best price could be reached for your home.
If you are looking to sell your home and buy a new one, now would be the time to consult with us about the many things to consider in order to make it a smooth process. You would also want to review your new purchase options. Timing and what you can offer is key.
Possible home repair preparation may be needed to make sure your home shows the best! This would depend on your specific goals as a Seller. Let us view your home in advance to help you get a picture of things that can help your property sell at the best price possible
If you are Buying a home:
There are many things to consider when purchasing a home, especially if you need financing to do it! What programs are available? How much do you need to save to cover closing costs or down payment? How much home can I buy with what I can afford? Now is the time to go over and iron out some of the specifics.
If your lease is up in the beginning of Summer, you need to start looking NOW! Reason being is that it takes a while to not only find a home and complete the buying process, but now a lot of sellers are looking for flexible buyers. Many of them are trying to buy a property of their own as well and need time to find the next one. Sellers are looking to the solution of having a rent back. This is where a buyer purchases the property and the seller rents the property back for 1-2 months in order to more give time purchase their new home.
