Hitting The Spring Real Estate Market

It Is Not Too Late To Buy Or Sell This Spring!

Spring is a time of new beginnings, making it an ideal season to get into a new home. Whether you are hoping to purchase your new property or sell your current one to free you up to shop around, here are some guidelines to help you make the most of the coming months.

If You Are Planning To Buy

  • Find your real estate agent now. He or she will be your guide to the whole process, so it is important to choose an agent you both like and trust. Do not wait; your agent will be able to help you find your dream property this spring.
  • Get pre-approved for your mortgage and secure your credit report. You would hate to have a perfect home slip through your fingers while you were waiting on this paperwork.
  • Make your priority list. Decide on your must-haves and would-be-nices so you will be ready to hit the ground running when you start looking at homes.

If You Are Planning To Sell

  • Figure out where you will price your home. Do not just rely on your home’s appraisal; shop the local market to understand where comparable properties are being priced.
  • Move quickly. Spring and summer are the busiest months for real estate sales, so listing your home now will leave you facing less competition.
  • List your property online, and make sure it looks great on tablets and Smartphones. Lots of buyers are shopping online today, so go digital to make the most of your listing.
