5 Things to know about your neighbors before you sell

5 Things to Know About Your Neighbors Before You Sell

Considering selling your home? You may be competing against your neighbors. Here are some things to look at with an agent before you list:

1. Who’s remodeled?

Tap into the neighborhood grapevine to find out who’s remodeled their kitchen and upgraded their bathroom. An agent can look up the listing and sale price of those homes to find out if updates made a difference.

2. How fast are homes selling?

Keep an eye on how quickly neighborhood homes have been moving off the market. A low inventory may mean you can set a higher listing price. Your realtor can add valuable pricing insight.

3. Take inventory of the inventory

It’s difficult to fetch a competitive price when you’re competing for buyers. If several homes are for sale on your street, waiting a season may prevent your home from languishing on the market. Talk to your Realtor about market trends in your area.

4. Stay current on planning and zoning news

Keep tabs on upcoming public projects that could impact the timing of your sale. Is major road construction planned that may deter buyers? An agent can discuss selling strategies to work around issues.

5. Get the scoop on your hood from an expert

A Realtor familiar with your unique market can put it all in perspective if you’re considering a sale.

7 Tips for Pet Owners Selling a Home

7 Tips for Pet Owners Selling a Home

Lingering animal smells and fur can be a turn-off for would-be buyers. Be sure to remove all signs of your furry friends before showings. Here are some tips.

1. Holey backyard, Batman!
Does your dog bury more bones than they munch on? Start at the perimeter of your yard and circle inward to find your pup’s landscaping efforts and fill them in.

2. Scoop the poop
One misstep can ruin a buyer’s impression of your yard (and possibly home). Make sure your property is clear of any pet-related landmines.

3. Mend fences
Check your fencing, deck and porch for any marks from scratching or chewing. Most can be erased with elbow grease and a bit of sandpaper.

4. Stash the evidence
Collect your pet’s toys, bowls, beds and litter boxes and keep them out of sight. Hide pet photos for now, too.

5. De-scents-itize
Have a friend or Realtor come by to sniff out any animal scents you may have become accustomed to. Light candles, open windows or hire a professional carpet cleaning crew to deodorize your home.

6. Need a buffer?
Have claws scratched up your lovely hardwood floors? Ask your Realtor if professional resurfacing might be a good idea.

7. Don’t leave pets home during showings
Not only is there a chance they may bolt through an open door when strangers stroll around, there’s also a liability issue. It may be a good idea to temporarily relocate exotic critters, such as snakes or tarantulas.

Looking for a home with a bigger yard for Fido, or more naturally-lit lounging space for Fluffy? Your Realtor can help you find properties with features all members of your family will love. Give me a call if I can help you find your new home.

May National Housing Report

May National Housing Report: What the Numbers Mean for You

The home-buying season was just starting in April, with a 7.5% sales increase over March and 3.2% increase over April of 2015, according to the May National Housing Report from RE/MAX. The Median Sales Price in April was $215,000, which was 5.4% higher than one year ago.

Buyers should note: While warmer months are traditionally known as the “home-buying season,” an average monthly year-over-year sales increase of 4.3% so far in 2016 means the market may remain competitive long after the kids are back in school. Work with an experienced agent to develop a buying strategy for the neighborhoods you’re interested in.

Sellers should note: The inventory of homes for sale remains very tight in many markets across the country, with April 2016 inventory 15.2% lower than April 2015. This may mean your house sells for a competitive price, but also that a competitive offer may be needed to buy your next place. Work with your Realtor to figure out a move-out, move-in timeline that doesn’t leave you in limbo.

6 Lessons Monopoly Can Teach You About Home Buying

6 Lessons Monopoly Can Teach You About Home Buying

1. Patience
MONOPOLY: So your family has decided to play Monopoly? Refill your beverage, grab a snack and change into comfortable clothes. You’re going to be there a while.

LESSON: Buying real estate is a process. There’s pre-approval for a loan, interviewing agents, searching for homes, submitting an offer, maybe submitting another offer, the home inspection, the appraisal, and final loan processing before you get the keys. Needless to say, buying a home can take some time. Instead of getting frustrated, focus on all of the great reasons you decided buying a home was right for you. Staying in close communication with your agent throughout the process will help, too.

2. Neighborhood matters
MONOPOLY: Everyone starts the game with one corner in mind: Boardwalk and Park Place. The highly priced properties have the best returns on investments, and the players who snag them first tend to do well in the game.

LESSON: Location is often a major consideration in real life as well. Home values, your lifestyle and so much more are factors in your neighborhood choice. Work with your agent to learn all you can about the neighborhoods that pique your interest.

3. Keep an open mind
MONOPOLY: Baltic and Mediterranean Avenue have a bad reputation because they’re the cheapest properties on the board, but they also present opportunity. Add a few houses and hotels and your return could be bigger than the one on nearby Connecticut Avenue.

LESSON: Keep an open mind when shopping for a home. An up-and-coming neighborhood may have appeal you didn’t see before, and more value for your budget.

4. Be prepared
MONOPOLY: You’re a Monopoly mogul! You have a handful of desirable properties and a steady stream of income from your houses and hotels. Then comes the Chance card: “Make general repairs on your property – for each house pay $25, for each hotel pay $100.”

LESSON: You never know what card you’re going to draw. But unlike Monopoly, the real world has home insurance available to help you prepare for unexpected repairs and disasters. A variety of plans, customizable to any budget, are available. Some homebuyers also opt for warranties covering potential appliance issues after move-in.

5. How to win a bidding war
MONOPOLY: Trading properties keeps Monopoly exciting. And there are no strict rules as to how a seller determines to accept an offer. Sibling rivalry, bribes involving candy or even business sense can play into a player’s decision.

LESSON: Sellers don’t always accept the highest offer. Writing a letter about why you fell in love with their home can sometimes sway their decision in your favor.

6. The importance of strategy
MONOPOLY: Monopoly is a game of strategy, but few players are inclined to study ways to win. What if you had a coach sitting next to you, advising how much to bid for a property, where to look next, and whether or not mortgaging a utility to buy Boardwalk is a smart idea? You would be unstoppable!

LESSON: Buying a home is an infrequent occurrence; for some it happens only once in a lifetime. Wouldn’t it be helpful to have someone on your side who was up-to-speed on laws for your state, knew which neighborhoods would best fit your lifestyle and offered to help you navigate a bidding war? That’s the value an experienced agent provides.
