When Should You Sell?

If you are selling because you are moving to another city or you are buying another home, then you probably don’t have the luxury of waiting for the ideal time to put your home on the market. However, most people do have some flexibility in deciding when to sell their home.

In a "Seller's Market", many buyers are competing for relatively few homes, resulting in homes selling much faster and commanding higher prices than in a "Buyer's Market", where there are fewer buyers. Your agent will help you decide on an asking price that will also help you meet your timing requirements.

 

Get A Bit Of Curb Appeal

First impressions do count. The most important thing sellers can do to improve their home is to spruce up the outside. It doesn't look attractive with long grass and weeds growing everywhere. The appearance of your home while on the market makes quite a difference. So, take a good look at the exterior. Some areas of concern are the roof condition and exterior materials. This will affect the look and the value. Fix broken shutters, mend ripped screens, fill in any holes in the landscaping. Changing the siding can raise the value and nearly pay for the siding job itself.

People are not usually looking for a handyman's special anymore. The days of leaving your fixer-upper to the next owner are over. Most buyers, even first time buyers want to buy a sound home with little or no work - only a bit of cosmetic work. The less the better.
