    Local Market Conditions

    It’s time to take a look at the latest real estate information from across the country. Today, we’ll be looking at the latest report released this week by THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, detailing Existing Home Sales for the month of December.

    Old vs. New

    We wanted to talk about the very first decision you’ll make. The first fork in the road you’ll come to – when you think about buying a home. And that is – should we buy an existing home? Or should we build, or buy, a brand new one?
    Of course, some people already know the answer.

    According to research by Builders Digital Experience – an online listing site for new homes – 48% of homebuyers prefer a resale property, 19% prefer a newly built home and the other 35% are equally open to both resales and newly built homes.

    You Still Need a REALTOR®!

    Ever thought about buying a new place? Well, if so, you probably know that in many ways, buying a new home instead of an existing home – is different. For one thing, no one has ever lived there before. You’ll be the first! That’s something a LOT of people really like. Another way buying a new home is different, is that instead of buying your home from a homeowner, you’re buying it from a builder. So instead of asking the seller to fix that leaky pipe…well, chances are you won’t HAVE a leaky pipe, since everything’s new. And if you do, you’ll be asking the builder to honor his warranty. OK? So as we said – lots of things are different.

    But plenty of things – are the same, when you’re buying new, or an existing house. Either way, the house has to be the right size, the right price, and in the right location. And one more thing too: whether you’re buing a new place, or an older home – you need a REALTOR®.

      Local Market Conditions

      This week we’re going to go further into the most recent Existing Home Sales report from THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, concentrating on November sales of existing homes by price category.

      November showed a disappointing downturn in existing home sales overall. But the Pending Home Sales Report, which looks ahead to future home sales, told a different story.

      Make Your Home Easy to Show

      We’re talking pro strategies – designed to help you sell your home fast – and for a profit that will make you smile.

      But sometimes the most effective strategy – is also the simplest. And that’s what we’re going to talk about now. A simple, easy technique that is so basic – you might forget about how important it really is. And that strategy is: Making Your Home Easy to Show.

      Let’s be honest, it can be a stressful time. It’s often at a moment’s notice that a buyer happens upon a property and wants an appointment in an hour. Then there are the “drive by” buyers who see the “for sale” sign and want to take a look.

      But you know that the more your home gets shown, the more likely you’ll get a contract. So how do you reduce the stress?
      Well first of all – set some ground rules.
