So with Spring in the air, the grass hasn't quite turned green yet but buyers are coming awake from their winter hibernation.
As a Seller it is important to make sure your house is in tip-top shape! Do some spring cleaning, open windows on warmer days and let the light and breeze flow in, since there is nothing worse than walking into a house that has stale odors even if it is in showhome condition...the nose knows! And having your home looking and smelling great really DOES put more money in YOUR pocket!
As a Buyer, don't let those changes regarding the mortgage approval process or changes to the interest rate scare you. It may mean that you need to get 'all your ducks in a row' BEFORE you start looking so that you avoid disappointments. Ask beforehand what paperwork you might need to start the approval process since this will help it go smoother and keep you happier. The prices for houses are very reasonable right now and just think, that house that may not have been in your price range a few years ago may very well be within your reach now!
