ApringHome Sales Has Sprung!
According to Trulia.com: Mortgage rates are still at historic lows, so buyers ARE poised to buy and ready to hit the streets.
The Numbers Say Sell Now
Sixty percent of all homes in 2014 will be bought and sold from May to August. Sellers who put their home on the market at the beginning of the selling season will up their chances of snagging a winning offer before buyers turn their attention back to school starting in September.
Price It Right
Many metros in the country have seen double-digit price increases in the past year. But this last quarter, prices started to slow nationally – and pricing is a critical component to getting a house sold. With this fluctuating market, sellers need to look at comps of similar homes in their area and rely on the expertise of their agent. Plus, remember, recency matters: sellers should look back no more than 60 days and depend on your agent to help you set the price appropriately. 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).
It Pays To Be Ahead Of The Curve
Trying to get a jump on the competition? Right now we’re on the cusp of prime selling and buying season, and sellers who list soon, will have less competition than those who put their house on the market in May or June, when more homes will flood the market. Since it’s still early, every home can have its ‘moment in the spotlight’ more than it will when inventory increases – and the buyers who are braving the cold to house shop are clearly motivated.
