Posts Tagged ‘selling your home’

Spring is approaching and soon most of this year’s home sales will be hitting the market. Spring and summer are typically when most of the homes sell in North Oakland and Lapeer counties. But it is also the time most houses go on the market. And if you are trying to sell those houses are called competition.

The first thing a prospective buyer will see is the front, exterior of your house. The MLS requires a front view as the main view and most web sites like Zillow and Realtor dot com pull their data from the MLS. Often times a buyer will want to drive past before seeing the interior.

So, if you are going to be selling, now is a good time to take a good look at a prospective buyer’s first look. Are you going to need to paint? Trim bushes and/or trees? Buy a few flats of flowers? Clean windows? Is your yard going to need a good weed and feed?

Tips for getting you house ready for sale

The best time to sell your North Oakland or Lapeer County home is when it fits best into your schedule. Some think of spring/summer as “the season” for selling. It is true that there are more sales in the spring and summer, but there are also more houses on the market.

Spring and summer are more enjoyable times to look, but when a person is looking at homes when the snow is up to their butt, they are probably a more serious buyer! There are so many different reasons that people move, it is impossible to tell when the best prospect for your house is out looking.

Sooo- if you are ready to move in the next few months, you should get your house on the market now. The timing won’t affect your pricing or time on the market.

For a free market analysis, please contact me. After I look at your house/property I will spend some time researching similar properties and then we can discuss price, marketing and the time it should take to sell.
