Selling in Today’s Market

With demand for homes up and inventory down, the conditions are perfect for home sellers to get higher prices than months and even years prior. "Many sellers can get top dollar in the current market conditions," says Lawrence Yun, a chief economist at NAR (National Association of Realtors).

This good news may come as a surprise to sellers since it was expected that the housing market would take a hit and home prices would drop because of the 2020 global pandemic. That's quite the contrary. Home asking price growth is actually higher now than it was before the pandemic. So here is how you can take advantage of this rare time in history.

Is It Time To Sell?

For most homeowners, being financially ready to sell your house comes down to one factor: equity.


Preparing Your Home

Help buyers fall in love with your home. Your new goal in selling your home is to appeal to the new Buyer’s taste, and not your own. To put it another way, “the home is now yours in name alone.”


Choosing An Agent

Your agent will look out for your best interests by finding homes that meet your criteria, get your showings, help you write offers, and negotiate on your behalf.


Staging Your Home

Home staging is the process of professionally furnishing and decorating a home and making it look as beautiful and appealing to buyers as possible. It’s not meant to cover up any negative aspects of the home, but to accentuate the positive features of your residence.


The Offer Process

Once a Buyer falls in love with your home (who wouldn’t with all the prep work you did getting it ready?) a formal, written offer will be presented for you to review.
