4 Reasons To Sell This Spring!

4 Reasons To Sell This Spring!

Bulbs are blooming, and spring is right around the corner!  Are you wondering if now is the best time to sell your house? With historically low inventory, and the housing demand high, you might be missing out on a great opportunity to sell your house! 4 Reasons to Sell Your House This Spring: 1. Demand Is Strong The latest Realtors’ Confidence Index from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) says buyer demand remains very strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing, and able to purchase now!  Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market. 2. Less Competition Now According to NAR’s latest Existing Home Sales Report, the supply of homes for sale is still under the 6-month supply needed for a normal housing market. This means there are to few homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers in the market. This is good news for home prices, but time is of the essence. Homeowners unable to put their house on the market due to negative equity situations are itching to make the move now. Real estate values have increased over the last two years, which means homeowners are now seeing a return to positive equity. Single family home new construction saw an increase in 2016, but there is still room for improvement. As builders regain confidence in the market, new construction of single-family homes will likely increase over the next two years, reaching historic levels by 2017.  New home sales numbers show many buyers turning to new construction to fulfill their needs because the market simply does not have what they are looking for. 3. Quicker Process Fannie Mae anticipates an acceleration in home sales that will surpass 2007’s pace....
Under Contract in a Matter of Days!

Under Contract in a Matter of Days!

Under Contract in a Matter of Days    When the market is hot & the home is priced right, there’s no telling how quickly it will sell!   Inventory is low, the market is on fire, therefore, it’s time to sell! We are definitely experiencing a seller’s market right now, especially in Lafayette/West Lafayette, and surrounding areas. Open houses have been busy and bustling from the moment the door unlocks and some of the homes listed below have had multiple offers with buyers willing to pay list price or MORE! BUYERS First of all, we are in the season of “bring your highest and best” so use a real estate agent who has YOUR best interests at heart. Furthermore, they should know the market, and understand the value of the home you are shopping for. – Bring your highest & best offer when given the opportunity. – Don’t get upset if you don’t get the first house you submit an offer on. – Get pre-approved & know EXACTLY how much you’re willing to spend. – Visit homes the DAY they hit the market so you don’t miss out. – Be patient with the process & your agent. SELLERS Looking to sell or even considering it? Make sure you talk to someone who knows the market, takes on new listings weekly, and knows how to price homes to sell. – Hire an agent who not only knows the value of your home AND homes in your area. – Since photos are so important, decluttered before the shoot. – Neutral colors help potential buyers see THEIR furniture in your home. As a result, you should probably paint that neon pink wall....
