4 Reasons to Sell Now

Selling a property in this tough market can seem like a challenge. Here are four factors that actually make this a good time to post a For-Sale sign.

1. Sell low and buy low. Because all property values are down, the loss on the property a home owner sells is really only a paper loss because the next property he buys also will be a bargain. If he buys smartly, when prices come back up in a few years, he’ll be in better shape.

2. Down-payment help is widely available. While nothing-down loans have disappeared, it is easy to find down-payment assistance for lower-income and first-time home buyers. Programs vary all over the country, but one good way to find them is to search online for “down-payment assistance programs” and the name of your region.

3. Your uncle has money to share. Besides the $8,000 first-time home buyer tax credit and the $6,500 move-up credit, there are an array of energy tax credits that can make home improvements pay off in cash.

4. Good help is available. Really talented real estate practitioners, contractors, and designers are available and eager for business.


Nothing is more important than pricing your home correctly in the beginning to attract attention to your home. Real estate agents check the MLS service daily to know the market and see what is new on the market to show their buyers. A home that is priced too high is going to be overlooked and not shown as often. Days on the market does matter!

Equally important is curb appeal. A well maintained yard and groomed plantings give your home that inviting look that will create the all important positive first impression to potential buyers. A small investment of money and time to improve the curb appeal can result in a quick offer to purchase contract.

The interior of your home should be in show condition. “Less is more” with interior furnishings; by reducing the number of pieces in a room it will open the space to look larger and more inviting. As an owner you know your homes best features so share that with your agent. Discuss your favorite part of the property to give the agent better insight to share with other agents and their clients.

Our team will meet with you to discuss your property and make suggestions on how to prepare your property for listing with a follow-up CMA appointment to show you the sold and active listings that your home will be competing with. A price will be determined based on the Competitive Market Analysis provided.

Spring is the Perfect Time of Year….If your home is in a rental program, spring is the season that most investors/2nd home buyers will want to buy a property.  They like the idea of closing prior to the rental season so the home will be providing them income for the first 3 to 4 months.  They look at those rental figures strongly when deciding which property is the smartest investment.  If you would like more information about how to boost the rental income or rental projections, our team has access to top rental managers plus some ideas of our own that we would be happy to share with you.

We are a team of three agents and we would like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your real estate needs. We have a strong internet marketing presence that your home will be featured on as well as other marketing tools that we will share with you.

If you are considering listing or ready to list today please give us an opportunity to meet with you to share our approach to selling in Corolla.
