Spring Market is Early!

Ground Hog Day 2016 Spring is coming

You heard it from the expert, spring is coming early this year!

You could have stood me (or probably any area Realtor) out in a field last weekend and we could have told you the same thing 🙂

Buyers, sellers, and builders are definitely getting a jump on the Spring real estate market this year.  Homes that have been on the market for a while are now going under agreement.  Homes that are just getting listed are accepting offers in only days.

If you are thinking about listing and selling your home, now is definitely the time.  Home inventory is low, buyer demand is high, and mortgage interest rates just dropped back down below 4% again.   As a seller, if your home is in good shape, those variables put you in  very good position to get top dollar when negotiating.

One note:
When I say “top dollar”, I really mean the most the market will support. Homes that are quickly going under agreement are staged correctly, marketed well, and priced right.  Make sure when considering your listing price, you look at the market through buyer’s eyes.  Check out your active competition.  What other homes will buyers consider when looking in your price range both in your town and neighboring towns?  What have similar homes sold for in your town over the past three months? … this will be key in making sure the buyer’s bank appraisal of your home comes in at the offer amount or higher. (Nothing worse than having to renegotiate a deal after already working through the offer process, a home inspection, and the Purchase and Sale Agreement.)

Do you know someone who might like to know what their home would be worth?

Do you know someone who would like to know more about how list and sell homes?

Please pass along my contact information… I’d love to help them make their next Move.
