Pricing a Home

You know I visit seller’s and everyone has their own reason’s and needs for selling their home. Did you know that the number one thing that sells a home is the price.  Of course, we all want a great price for our home but a seller does need to be realistic. You need to ask your agent to get comparable homes in the neighborhood that have recently sold. Right now it is certainly a buyer’s market.

Your home should be priced properly to avoid getting stale on the market. The most important time for a listing is the first 30 days. If you listed your home at a higher price to start don’t leave it that way too long. If you have it competitively priced, you can increase your changes of getting multiple offers, especially if this is done right when first going on the market.

Interest Rates Fall!

Interest rates fell today. There are home loans available as low as 5 3/4 % 30 year fixed with zero points. Jumbo rates are great too. These are the best rates in the last 4-5 months. If you are sitting on the fence thinking of buying, it is a great time. You don’t know how long the rates will stay this way. If you or anyone you know needs a pre-approval, let me know. Enjoy your day!
