The 2015 Spring market will kick off March 20 and I want to make sure my clients have the information they need. See my last post regarding the perfect price points here: “Is your home priced wrong?” http://wp.me/pMOZs-jx
Selling homes and spring clean ups go a lot further when there’s less snow. Not only are the days longer, less snow makes showing homes much easier! You can be sure that any agent will tell you to de-clutter your home before you put it up on the MLS. So go ahead this spring and box up those old clothes, shoes and extra clutter around the house and hand it off. Consider getting a jump start for your taxes on your charitable donations for the year! And Goodwill will thank you for it.
March is also a great time to get a property report on your home to understand the current market conditions. Market values change, so ask an agent to pull a list of area homes that are similar to yours to see what the current is up to. Doing a little research now can help you down the line. Often, sellers update their homes beyond the market value, adding high end items such as granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances when most of the neighbors forego such amenities. Updating is great, just keep it in line with the expectations of your neighborhood so that you’ll retain the most dollars for your hard work when it comes time to sell.
