Q: What should homeowners know about today’s market?
A: The important thing to know is what is universal in any market: buyers care about overall home maintenance. No matter the pace of the real estate market, homeowners should recognize that good maintenance, fresh paint, impeccable curb appeal, strategic marketing and excellent pricing strategy will protect you regardless of how the market is doing. Just having a “hot” market does not mean your home is going to sell. In fact, when you do fail to sell, you’ll fail bigger and more publicly than if the market is struggling. This is not the time to skimp on efforts because it’s a “hot” market.
Q: What is your best tip for people looking to sell?
A: Work with a real estate agent from the first thought of selling. Especially one that understands market values in your specific area. We Realtors are consistently honing our recommendations based on current market data. The information that we provide one month may be totally different three months later. It’s important to stay in touch and in tune with the Realtors. They are the front line of any trend.
With complimenting backgrounds in architecture, staging, marketing, sales and communications, our agents have unique perspectives on the market, servicing both first-time buyers and those looking at properties in the upper brackets with diligence, care and excellence.
