What is your Home Worth?

What is your Home Worth?

Have you noticed a market shift. It is no long just a seller market. Market seems to be coming down to a Normal market. The last few years, price have gone up 3-6% consistently, and now we are seeing an up tik in homes for sale on the market, they seem to be taking much longer to sell and we are seeing fewer and fewer multiple offers on a house. This indicates that the market has stopped the acceleration of home prices going up and buyers are waiting to see them go down further, specially with the interest rate hikes in the last 6 months. 

Values have definitely changed or will change soon! and they are not going up?

Choosing A High Ranking School and Home Buying

Choosing A High Ranking School and Home Buying

I Have been selling home for many many years, and one the first questions that buyers usually ask is " How are the schools here?"

Even if you no have children going to school, is it still important to have a good school district, because it does affected the price of the home when buying or when you decide to sell one day!

When choosing a home, one of buyers’ top priorities is a good ranking school.

According to statistics from the National Association of REALTORS®, 70% of buyers think highly rated schools are important.

 

When it comes time to sell your home, consider the fact that highly rated schools nearby could be a huge selling point!

Making The Move

Making The Move

The average homeowner stays in their home for 10 years. Here are some telltale signs it’s time to pack your bags and make the move.

  1. It’s a sellers market… And you want in.

  2. Your neighbors are selling and making the big bucks.

  3. You were sick of feeling financially stressed.

  4. You’ve grown – but your home hasn’t. You’re over the maintenance.
