Pricing a home for sale is very important specially in Buyer's market. * Fair market value attracts buyers, overpricing never does. * The first two weeks of marketing are crucial. Fair market value is what a willing buyer and a willing seller agree by contract is a fair price for the home. Values can be impacted by wide range of reasons but two main once are LOCATION and CONDITION. Generally, fair market value can be determined by comparables - other similar homes that have sold or are currently for sale in the same area. Sellers often view their homes as special which temps them to put a higher price on the home, believing they can always come down later, but that's a serious mistake.

New VS Used

It's a question I'm asked on a weekly basis by my clients " should we buy a new home or is it better to buy an older home " & I often find myself on both sides of the spectrum. There are many benefits of buying a new house but there are also benefits to buying an older house as well; it really all depends on what you want out of the home. Is it the location that you desire most or do you want everything in your home to be new and just how you wanted it.

 Homebuilders will often let buyers help design the property; it helps create a living space that is tailored to their tastes.


 Less repairs:
