We have transitioned from winter to late spring overnight, and the real estate market has taken off with the weather.
If you have been telling yourself that you are waiting for the spring market to buy or sell your home, the time is upon you. It seems like overnight, as the weather changed, the urge to move has struck.
The local market has held steady since the cooling off that happened late last summer. We are seeing some competition for well priced homes, and also in certain price ranges, but so far, none of the craziness we experienced last year.
If you are considering selling, now is a great time to put your home on the market. There are buyers out there, prequalified for their financing, looking for the right home. Buyers are educated as to market value, and generally know what they are looking for. With the help of your real estate professional, you can present your home in its most desirable fashion, and maximize your sale price.
If you are considering buying, this year you should have an opportunity to look for the right home, and have a chance to think and make sure you are ready to buy. There are more homes available to view, and often time for you to look at all that catch your attention before making your offer. Your real estate professional can help you arrange your financing pre-approval, and also help you determine what is most important to you in your new home. They can advise you on value, and negotiate a fair purchase price on your behalf.
The time for waiting for Spring is over! If this is your year to move, be sure to call one of our real estate professionals, and let them make your move smooth and easy!
