I am often asked how the real estate business is going. The presumption is that, with this economy, they don’t expect that the business is doing very well.
Well I’ve seen better, but the fact is that places are selling. In fact, we have agents in our office who have sold far more this year than last (and you need to be selling regularly to survive in a RE/MAX office).
Obviously, money is tight. But if you are employed, and you need to move, you can do it now. House prices have dropped over the last two years, and interest rates have stayed low. In addition there have been cash bonuses available to first time home buyers, and if you are buying a brand new home, there’s a bonus for that too. These discounts come and go, but if you are planning to buy, you should take advantage of them when you can.
If you are a seller, pricing is very important. There is a larger than normal inventory right now, so price it with the current market in mind. Clean-up, and repair any obvious damage (or price accordingly). If you are priced right, you should be able to sell within about 60-days.
If you’re ready, let’s get it done before the snow flies!
