Thinking of selling your home but not sure if now is the “right time?” Talk to me for sound advice on when to sell your home in the least amount of time for the best possible price.
First I will help you examine your reasons for wanting to sell. The most common reasons why people decide to sell their homes include changes to their financial status, an employment transfer, a growing family or retirement. Today’s low interest rates have also made it attractive for many homeowners to “move up” to a larger home.
Whatever your reason, selling a house is a complicated procedure so it’s imperative to have a qualified real estate professional on your side. Because selling a home involves large sums of money and complicated legal documents, my expertise can help a homeowner avoid costly mistakes.
Real estate cycles
Buying your home was probably the best investment you ever made. That’s because over the long term, real estate has proven to be a sound investment while at the same time offering you and your family shelter and a feeling of pride of ownership.
However, real estate is subject to the law of supply and demand which creates cycles in the market. A shortage of homes generally means prices rise. This cycle is commonly known as a “seller’s market.” Alternately, a surplus of homes can result in a slow down in home sales or even a reduction in prices and is often referred to as a “buyers market.”
One of the most important services I provide is a market analysis. Most people don’t have the time it takes to conduct the comprehensive market research required to accurately price a home. I can give you up-to-date information on what economic and other factors are impacting current market conditions.
