Things to consider when selling a home

  • Why Hire an Agent?

    Studies show that sellers who use a real estate agent generally get a better price than those who choose to sell the home themselves. As an agent it is my job to stay up to date on the latest market trends and fluctuations. Utilizing an agent means no surprises during the selling process, as you will have latest information at critical junctures in the process. Let me put my experience to work for you to ensure you get the best price for your home!

  • Before Your Home is Listed

    Prior to listing your home, you’ll want to ensure everything is in good showing condition before buyers start to tour the home. Here are some important things to consider:

    • Start Packing
      Now is the time to put things in storage, clean out the basement and garage and start preparing to show your home. Remove any family photos or personal items. Remember, you want buyers to see themselves in your home!

    • Spot Paint
      Touch up both interior and exterior paint.

    • Update Carpet
      Clean or replace carpet in areas with heavy wear.

    • Extra Cleaning
      Keep the interior and exterior clean and odor free.

    • Curb Appeal
      Trim any overgrown bushes, mow the lawn and keep it free of leaves or snow. Make sure the front of the home is clean and appealing. You want to make a strong first impression!

    • Find Potential Problems Early
      Once you’ve completed these steps you may want to hire someone to perform a pre-listing inspection. Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors too; this is your chance to find and address problems before it’s time to sell.

Waiting will probably not result in improved circumstances; thus, now is a great time to sell a house. The combination of limited inventory and high demand is beneficial for maximizing revenues. Due to the lack of alternatives, there is a higher chance that many bidders may compete for your house. If you are an experienced
home seller, don’t miss the opportunity.

Despite recent changes in the market, there is still a shortage of available properties, and interest rates on mortgages are still historically low. However, any of these factors may alter before the end of the year, giving buyers additional control.


The average interest rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage has decreased from its peak in June to 5.33%. As mortgage rates are falling and home price growth is slowing and occasionally failing to outpace inflation year-over-year, this may open up a small opportunity for home buyers this autumn. As we go into the fall market, mortgage rates may continue to decline, according to July’s flat inflation figures.

We can’t yet tell if this will moderate the recent increases in inventory or maintain the seller’s market. Suppose you are a buyer & you want to buy a home for yourself & you start to find home sellers; you would not face any hurdles due to a decline in mortgage rates and inflation. For better support and result economically, we are there for you to help you market your property to get the best price for it.




Looking over the fence, though, at the rental market’s accelerating rent growth indicates that potential purchasers skipping the for-sale market are now significantly impacting home rental rates. Even though we highlighted last month, there are still not enough homes in the neighborhoods where purchasers or renters want to reside. As a result, housing will likely continue to become less accessible in the long run unless there is significantly more rental and for-sale building activity than what we are now witnessing, sustained over a longer time frame than we have lately seen. 

If your long-term objective is to buy a home or keep one, it may be worthwhile to take advantage of the current window of an exceptionally favorable mortgage. If you are a home seller and want to sell your property or to rent it out, then you are at the right place. We will guide you and provide you with a better amount for your home as soon as possible.

  • Professional Staging
    Consider hiring a professional stager to help give buyers the appeal they’re looking for.

  • During the Listing Period

    You’ll need to plan to have something to do during the times potential buyers visit your home. If initial offers don’t meet your expectations, don’t dismiss them immediately. You may need to consider lowering your asking price if months go by with few or no offers. However, by working with your agent you will be able to arrive a price that works for all parties.
