How Is The Real Estate Market In My Area Right Now?

Now, this may seem like a simple question to answer, however as hot as the market may be in your area right now, it’s still important to look at the numbers and projections for months to come. 

Hiring a skilled realtor is absolutely crucial in this process as indicators of how the market is looking in your area can be produced by the proper research being done. 

Important things to look out for include the average days on market homes have been kept on in your area before they sell, how much over asking price on average, the number of transactions being closed on a month by month basis, and much more. 

How To Best Prepare My Home For Selling?

One of the most important aspects of real estate when it comes to selling or buying a home are first impressions. 

You only get one shot at making a great first impression with potential home buyers, so it’s absolutely essential that you take the steps necessary to present your home in the best light possible.

This may even mean sprucing up the home to really give it a fresh look such as repainting rooms, updating cabinetry, or even doing bigger home project renovations to really increase the value of your home. 

Remember - what you put into your home is what you get out of it. 

When Exactly Is The Best Time To Sell My Home?

This is definitely a leading question when it comes to selling your home. 

You may think because the market is hot, it’s the perfect time to sell your home. This may be true, however time of the year can also have a big impact on your home’s worth in the market. 

This is truly best to take the guidance of an experienced realtor who will take an in depth look at your community and see which months are best to put your home on the market.

Spring may seem like the obvious choice for when is best to sell your home, however combined with just how hot the market currently is, fall or winter may even be the better bet as there is less competition. 

Whatever the case, don’t hurry into selling your home as excited as you may be. This is a process which requires careful decision making and timing in order to be rewarded by the investment you have put into your home.
