Buying or Selling... it dosen't matter whether you are a first-time buyer, an empty-nester or somwhere in between, you need the services of an experience, dedicated real estate professional who will understand your goalls and adopt tehm as his/her own.
Know Your Numbers: 60%
- Sixty percent of all homes in 2014 will be bought and sold from May to August. Putting your home on the market at the beginning of the selling season will help your chances of snagging a winning offer before buyers turn their attention back to school starting in September.
Price It Right
- Pricing is a critical component to getting your house sold. With this fluctuating market, you need to look at comparables of similar homes in your area, and recency matters: make sure you’re looking back no more than 60 days. The sale price of homes that sold recently paints a much better picture of what to expect than the price of homes that sold six months ago (or of homes that have yet to sell).
Make It Pop Off The Computer (Or Smartphone) Screen!
- In this new mobile era, a huge percentage of buyers use smart phones to start their home search online. And that percentage is expected to rise this year as more buyers take advantage of easy access to the wealth of information online. Get in on this trend by making sure your home pops on those computer screens. Great homes with mediocre quality photos will be quickly discarded and ultimately get less showings. Sellers should insist that their agent take the time to beef up their online listing so the quality of the home jumps off the screen and gets buyers’ attention. Check with your realtor to see if their websites are compatible with smartphones.
