How To List Your Home for the Best Price

How To List Your Home for the Best Price





If your plan for 2019 includes selling your home, you will want to pay attention to where experts believe home values are headed. According to the latest Home Price Index from CoreLogic, home prices increased by 4.7% over the course of 2018.
The map below shows the results of the latest index by state.

Real estate is local. Each state appreciates at different levels. The majority of the country saw at least a 2.0% gain in home values, while some residents in North Dakota and Louisiana may have felt prices slow slightly.
This effect will be short lived. In the same report, CoreLogic forecasts that every state in the Union will experience at least 2.0% appreciation, with the majority of the country gaining at least 4.0%! The prediction for the country comes in at 4.6%. For a median-priced home, that translates to over $14,000 in additional equity next year! (The map below shows the forecast b ...

WHOSE MORTGAGE DO YOU WANT TO PAY? YOURS OR YOUR LANDLORD’S??

WHOSE MORTGAGE DO YOU WANT TO PAY? YOURS OR YOUR LANDLORD’S?




There are some people who haven’t purchased homes because they are uncomfortable taking on the obligation of a mortgage. However, everyone should realize that unless you are living with your parents rent-free, you are paying a mortgage – either yours or your landlord’s.




As Entrepreneur Magazine, a premier source for small business explained in their article, “12 Practical Steps to Getting Rich”:



“While renting on a temporary basis isn’t terrible, you should most certainly own the roof over your head if you’re serious about your finances. It won’t make you rich overnight, but by renting, you’re paying someone else’s mortgage. In effect, you’re making someone else rich.”




“The spring homebuying season is almost upon us, and if rates stay lower, inventory continues to grow, and the job market ...

Why It Makes No Sense To Wait For Spring To Sell

Why It Makes No Sense To Wait For Spring To Sell




The price of any item (including residential real estate) is determined by the theory of ‘supply and demand.’ If many people are looking to buy an item and the supply of that item is limited, the price of that item increases.
The supply of homes for sale dramatically increases every spring, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). As an example, here is what happened to housing inventory at the beginning of 2018:

Putting your home on the market now, rather than waiting for increased competition in the spring, might make a lot of sense.
Bottom Line
Buyers in the market during the winter are truly motivated purchasers and they want to buy now. With limited inventory currently available in most markets, sellers are in a great position to negotiate.

7 Reasons to List Your House for Sale This Holiday Season!

Every year at this time there are many homeowners who decide to wait until after the holidays to list their homes for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.


Here are seven great reasons not to wait:





Relocation buyers are out there. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays and need their new employees in their new positions as soon as possible.






Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now.






You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.






Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.






There is minimal competition for you as a seller right now. Inventory of homes for sale traditionally slows in the late fall, early winter. Let’s take a look at listing inventory as compared to the s ...

Are Homeowners Renovation to Sell or to Stay?

Over the past few years, two trends have emerged in the housing market:





Home renovations have shot up






Inventory of homes available for sale on the market has dropped





A ‘normal’ housing market is defined by having a 6-month supply of homes for sale. According to the latest Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors, we are currently at a 4.4-month supply.


This low inventory environment has many current homeowners worried that they would be unable to find a home to buy if they were to list and sell their current houses, which is causing many homeowners to instead renovate their homes in an attempt to fit their needs.


According to Home Advisor, homeowners spent an average of $6,649 on home improvements over the last 12 months. If that number seems high, it also includes homeowners who recently bought fixer-uppers.


A new study from Zillo ...
