REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington Predicts a Seller's Market For 2008

By
Home Stager with Dezigner Digz

The REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington recently predicted a Seller's market for 2008.  This is good news if you are planning on selling your home this year.  If you are ready to take the plunge, here are a few tips to start preparing your home for sale:

•  Clean your home from top to bottom.  Once you have thoroughly cleaned it, clean it once again.  Your home should be spotless and remain that way for every showing and open house.

•  Remove any unnecessary clutter.  Rooms that are cluttered look smaller and distract buyers.

•  Tidy up cupboards and closets.  Believe it or not, people will look inside those closets.  Make sure that they are neatly organized.

•  Hire a professional home stager to come in and do a walk through.  A consultation report will bring to light those items that need your attention - ones that you may have overlooked.

•  Follow through on your home stager's recommendations or hire him or her to carry them out for you.

A Seller's market can encourage multiple offers.  This is even more likely to happen if your home is presented in the best way possible.

A sellers' market in '08?  Not so in Florida.  A home stager is particularly needed during a buyers' market, such as we presently have down here.  Too many sellers trying to sell dated, cluttered homes.

We are seeing a sellers market in St. John's as well.  LOTS of activity for the first week of January.

With all the hype of Hebron, it's going to make for an interesting 2008.

Dalia - It seems the market in Canada is very different from the U.S. at the moment.  You are absolutely correct that home stagers are needed in a buyers' markets as well.  All the best to you in 2008!

Stephen - I wonder if most of Canada is seeing a sellers' market right now?  Glad your January is busy so far!
