SELLING IN A BUYER'S MARKET
What if you are planning to sell your home now? First, don't be discouraged. There are still plenty of buyers in the market who are ready to make a move. In fact, those who are in the market right now are serious buyers who know what they are looking for and are not afraid to make an offer for the right property.
Second, be realistic about the actual market value of your home and work with a real estate professional to price it correctly. Look at current sales in your neighborhood and compare your home to those that have similar size and features. I can provide a Comparative Market Analysis that shows the prices of homes recently sold in your neighborhood as well as the number of days homes were on the market.
Finally, look at your home with a critical eye. How will your home "show" to potential buyers? Are there repairs you should make before placing your home on the market? Fresh, clean interiors, properly maintained structures and a well-groomed yard are more important than ever. Price attracts buyers first. But once they narrow their choices to a particular price, they will choose the best house in the group, so make sure your home shows well compared to others similar in price.
As with all the others before it, the length of this current real estate cycle remains a mystery. The best way to make sure you take advantage of the benefits available now is to do your research and learn about the current trends influencing the market. I can help. Please give me a call for more information about homes available in your desired area or for a Comparative Market Analysis of your home.
When the national economy slows, real estate becomes a more popular investment tool. Owning your own home is like having an invisible piggy bank. With each mortgage payment, you buy down the mortgage balance and build up equity, While appreciation of the home varies from market to market, the longer you stay in the house, the more profit you are likely to realize when you sell. And the interest you pay on your mortgage is tax-deductible in most cases. This combination of equity, appreciation, and tax advantages is why many look to real estate as a stable, long-term investment.
