Market's Hot - But interest rates may be going Up -Sell Now

While home prices have been on the upswing over the last couple of years, interest rates are set to rise soon from their all-time lows. if you're thinking of selling, now is the best time to cash in on your home. Here's why the current market makes it a great time to sell your home: 1. Low interest rates keep home values up. As interest rates begin to rise, buyer demand begins to drop, and so may your home's fair market value.

Selling your home now while interest rates are low ensures you get the most out of your equity. 

Your home listing may not reach as far as you'd like. An ad in your local paper and a sign on your front lawn has less reach than a full, professional real estate marketing campaign. 

  • You'll be responsible for all the legally mandated disclosures and forms. These forms may be difficult to understand properly without an agent's help.
  • You need to research comparable properties in your area to correctly price your home.
  • You may believe you're saving money by not hiring an agent, but the costs of locating buyers and closing a transaction yourself may use up the expenses you save — and then some. 

With an agent

Marketing expenses are covered. An agent has means to produce signs, flyers and other marketing materials you may need.

  • Agents have access to a multiple listing service (MLS), which expands the audience for your buyer search.
  • Agents have experience analyzing the local market and inventory to set an appropriate price for your home. They may also provide you with a comparative market analysis.
  • An agent knows the legal requirements for disclosures and paperwork. You won't have to worry, about accidentally missing a necessary step in the process.
  • An agent is on your side. It's their job to negotiate on your behalf for the best deaf possible so you can focus on your other daily responsibilities — and save some money in the process. If you're ready to sell your home, give me a call to set up an appointment today!
