Stage and Give Access

Don’t Forget to Stage!

Over half of seller’s agents estimate that staged homes sell faster and for more money. Almost ¾ of buyer’s agents said staging helps potential buyers see the home as their own. Great reasons for staging!

I’ll add one more thought. Empty homes are much more difficult to sell. If you must move on before your home is marketed – consider paid staging or home tenders as an option. Either helps sell your home.

Access - Getting Your House SOLD!

If you want your home sold in the shortest amount of time, there are many factors to consider. Not the least of which is access. You don’t want to be a seller who does not want to be inconvenienced and show your home only on certain days of the week and within certain hours. Flexibility is key! Have a closer look at today’s report – link above.

Housing Still "Buy Now"

Housing Market Still In ‘Buy Territory’!

Rents are predicted to go up significantly – again. Home prices will too. The difference is once you have a mortgage, you can pretty much fix your payment for the next 30 years. Chances are, your landlord is not going to fix rent for any comparable amount of time.

Besides the financial impact of investing in a home, there are all the benefits of living under your own roof. If you have not had the experience, now would be good!

Housing Cost Across Time

The chart is pretty self-explanatory. I remember when rates hit 18%. I was right in the middle of buying an apartment building – ouch! But that is a story for another day. Check out today’s rates. They are still really AWESOME! If you need mortgage help – let me know and I can give you a couple referrals.
