Hi Friend,

It is shaping up to be a busy spring for the housing market. Demand is strong and home values have continued to appreciate. There has been another slight increase in mortgage rates, which reached record lows last year. There continues to be a shortage of houses available on the market, and new construction has ramped up to try and meet demand. It is an excellent market for sellers, and buyers have more opportunities thanks to increased loan limits. 

In this competitive market, it is more important than ever to work with a trusted real estate professional. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for guidance.

How Curb Appeal Can Help Sell Your Property

It is true that we are in a sellers' market. Making your home desirable to buyers may not mean it won't sell, but it can increase the buying price and may lead to multiple offers. If a buyer is contemplating buying your house, curb appeal may be the factor that sets yours above the rest. The curb appeal of a home is the exterior impression from the street. The overall feel of the exterior, including landscaping design and cleanliness of the yard, makes the first impression and gives buyers an idea of what to expect on the inside. A warm and welcoming exterior can help attract the buyer, enticing them to know more. What is considered good curb appeal? Think like someone who has never seen your house before and take a look from the street. What would you notice first?

Little-Known Things to Look For When Buying a Home

How can you be sure your time and energy spent house hunting will yield the best results? Is it more space that you need most? Is there a particular neighborhood or school system that can make or break the deal? When considering what is most important to you, making a list of priorities can be extremely helpful. That way, even if you can't check every box on the list, you can easily weigh your options and find the best fit that is available to you.
