Thinking of buying a home?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Thinking of buying a home?   Resale or New Construction?

New home construction has increased dramatically.  Low interest rates, affordable home prices, and limited existing home inventory have increased the demand for new homes.

This month I’m providing information below to help you if you’re in the market to buy a home. Just click on the image to see the document. Page one includes facts and statistics about the home construction market. Page two offers relevant financing information if you’re thinking of buying a home in need of a remodel, and an overview of home renovations.

Two tried and true sayings about real estate are —

1) As goes the valley of the sun so goes AZ, and as goes AZ so goes the nation.

2) Whether you are buying or selling, the most important facts about real estate are neighborhood facts.

So it’s no surprise that the enclosed overview of the national market actually began happening in our area 18 months ago.  The local numbers are even better than the national numbers.  So, if you want to learn more about the resale or new construction market in a neighborhood that matters to you, just give me a call.

Oh, by the way … if you know of someone who would appreciate the level of service I provide, please call me with their name and number.  I’ll be happy to follow up and take great care of them.

5 Things To Do Before You Sell Your Home

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Putting your home on the market isn’t as simple as placing a FOR SALE sign in your yard. There are several steps you should take when preparing your home for sale. Read more below to learn about the top 5 things you should do.

-5 Tips For Sellers-

  1. Hire a Real Estate Agent.
    It may be tempting to list your home on your own to avoid paying a sales
    commission, but selling your own home is a full-time job itself. A real estate
    professional represents the best opportunity to earn the maximum amount from
    your home’s sale. An agent will recommend the best listing price, market your
    home effectively and show your home to buyers. An agent also recognizes what
    buyers are looking for in a new home.
  2. Get Your Home Inspected
    You are required to disclose any problems with your property to prospective buyers. Failure to do so will lead to further complications, even if you weren’t aware of the flaws ahead of time. Hire a professional inspector to identify and document any problems with your property. Also, make sure your home has a clean bill of health
    from termites.

If you need a real estate professional to assist you with the sale of your home don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m always happy to help.

How do FHA appraisers determine which home improvements add value and what needs to be “called out” or repaired prior to a buyer getting an FHA loan? These were 2 of the topics discussed during a webinar I participated in June. Give me a call and I’ll be glad to share what we learned.
