Selling your home at the peak price

home-167734__340

Here are three tips for selling your home for the best possible price in the shortest amount of time.

Be ready to sell. Prepare your home physically – and yourself mentally – to make the move. Have your home clean and ready for showings to boost the appeal and perceived value. Buyers want to see that a home is well-maintained and cared for. Make sure you’re emotionally ready to part with your home and embrace your move because the sale could happen at any time.

Be flexible. The timing of the sale and scheduling of the closing may not be at the most convenient times. Try to remain flexible and understand that your normal schedule may have to adjust. Be ready to spring into action and move on short notice.

Engage a real estate agent early. The third and most important step is to work with a real estate agent you trust.  To determine the best time to list your home, consult with your local agent. A knowledgeable professional will assist you in every possible way.

The very latest real estate numbers & stats for Portland-Metro as of 2-15-2018

The first month of 2018 is in the books! The real estate numbers look pretty darn good! Take a look at the graphs. there are three that give different , and the most CURRENT information on our Portland-Metro real estate market.

Inventory rose a bit in January, ending at 2.2 months. 2.2 months is still a low number. Ideally, we want months of inventory to be around 5-7. This just means we are in  a sellers market still. Anything under 6 months of inventory is a Seller’s market.  During the same period, total market time increased by five days to end at 60 days. This in conjunction with the low inventory send a signal that possibly we will see more homes on the market soon.

We are seeing, on average, +7.6% appreciation in homes. That is a very good number. Where else can you get +7.6% growth, on average, just by living in your home, having a rental, or holding property? The median appreciation is even higher at +8.6%! I’m a big advocate for home ownership. It’s just a win, win, win all around for YOU!

Finally, take a look at the graph that breaks down the different Portland-Metro locations and their individual stats! Days on the market, appreciation schedule, average sales price, etc.  We are seeing POSITIVE appreciation in all areas. the highest is Mt. Hood at 16.2% and the least is West Portland at 3.2%. Take a look at the areas that you live or are interested in. Each neighbor hood also has different appreciation values.

If you would like more information about selling and/or buying ion today’s market, please call, email, or text anytime. I’d love to go over what your home value is, steps it takes to sell, what to do to get ready to sell, and what to expect when you sell ans/or buy. I’ve helped many people be successful and I can help you too!

5 Ways to add “curb appeal” value to your home

for newsletter 1

5 Ways to add “curb appeal” value to your home

  1. Wash up — Power wash the exterior to remove dirt build-up and other debris. Clean off the roof and gutters, and don’t forget the windows. Wash them inside and out to keep natural light flowing freely throughout the home’s interior.
  2. Outside updates — Re-stain the deck or reseal the patio, if needed. Make sure fencing is in good condition.
  3. Prune and trim — Highlight your yard by pruning all trees and other plants. Keep the lawn mowed and weed the garden beds. Add small potted plants to increase color and greenery. Consider hiring a professional if yard work is not your specialty.
  4. Attention to detail — Keep your front door looking fresh with a new coat of paint, or consider replacing the door, if necessary. Make sure house numbers stand out and the doorbell works. Don’t forget the mailbox. It should be upright, secure and aesthetically pleasing.
  5. Pop of color — Add interest with a new doormat or fill window boxes with bright flowers. Choose colors that complement your home’s exterior.

For more information on what to to get ready to sell so you can get the best price possible, please call, email, or text anytime.
