April Showers Bring May Buyers

April Showers Bring May Buyers

We have finally rounded the corner into Spring! Yes it is true that houses sell 365 a year but this is typically the time of year where inventory starts to increase as everyone is ready to sell. Are you ready for the Spring market? Whether you are selling or buying there are a few things to keep in mind. 

If you are selling it is important to start cleaning up your front yard. Sounds crazy, right? No. Curb appeal. Think curb appeal! If someone drives up to your home and they do not like what they see from the curb, the chances of them wanting to walk through your front door diminish significantly. Give them a reason to want to see inside. What you project from the outside translates past the front door. Are you thinking of selling but haven't figured out if the numbers will work for you? I can give you a free market analysis. Remember, the market sets the price regardless of what you think your home is worth. Let me show you that information. I would love to meet with you.

If you are a buyer in this market here are some realities. Rates are great! But our inventory is low. Where does this leave you? It is important to understand your buying power first and foremost. The first step in entering the real estate market is to get pre-approved! Do not try guessing at what you can afford. You would be surprised at all the different loan products that are available and you really do need this important step before we can go looking at homes. I would not want to show you something you love and then we find that you cannot afford it. I am happy to help get you ready to enter the housing market. Once that piece of the puzzle happens, we start looking! This market is hopping and gone are the days of taking time to think about whether you want to love a particular house and then write on it. Because inventory is so low, if you find a home that meets your criteria and you love it....write on it. Multiple offers are no joke in this market so be the first one in line. Do not wait. I can help you find that home fast so that you get that first opportunity. I would love to work with you. 

Give me a call, txt or email.

Let's Spring into this market together!
