Thinking about Selling your home?

You see all the homes around you going on the market and selling quickly.  That gets you thinking, should I sell my home? There are many things to consider if you are thinking about selling.  

How much is my house worth?  That is the first question that usually comes up.  You want to find out if it is worth it to sell. So your first step is to call your agent and have them prepare you a current market analysis.  Now that is not the only number you need. You want to find out how much you owe on the home, how much it will cost to sell and the costs of any work that may need to be done before you sell it. 

Look around your house and see what repairs or updates need to be done in order to sell your home.  See what the costs would be to do the repairs and updates so you can get the most money for your house.  If you are not sure what repairs or updates you might consider, then contact your agent and they can come out and give their opin ...

Listing your home and surviving the showings

So you have made the leap and chose to put your home on the market.  You have probably spent days making sure the house is pristine and everything is in its place.  Now what comes next with all the showings. 

First you want to list your house on a Thursday, the reason for this, is that a lot of buyers start looking for homes they want to see during the weekend on Thursday.  Also make sure your agent sets up an open house for that weekend.  

Obviously if the house is not occupied it is easier for showings but if you are still living in the house there are a few things I recommend.

Find some activities to do outside of the home for the first few days your home is on the market or maybe even taking a little mini vacation.  It will be easier to schedule showings and you want to be as flexible as possible for buyers. Also you do not want to be present during the showings, you want the buyers to view the home in a relaxing way and if you are ...

Current Market Update - Week of November 8th

We are into the second week of November, there is only a little over 7 weeks until the end of the year!  I can’t believe it will be 2020 already. The Spokane market is still experiencing low inventory, we are still just barely over a month in inventory, with even fewer homes coming on the market this week. 

So what does barely over a month in inventory mean, that means that if buyers continued to buy at the rate they are buying and no other homes came on the market, we would run out of inventory in just over a month.  Keep in mind this does not include listings of manufactured homes, homes over an acre and vacant land. Now a balanced market is having a 5.5 month inventory, so we are really far from that, it is still a seller’s market.  I really don’t see that changing anytime soon.  

We are definitely seeing buyers slow down and the number of homes sold per week is slowly going down.  This is expected in the winter months a ...

Current Market Update for the week of 11/1

As October is coming to an end and the weather is turning cold, the real estate market in Spokane is still hot.  The current market is shifted from 1.2 to 1.3 month inventory this week.  So it shifted a little bit but not much has changed since last week.  It is still a seller's market, we really do not see this changing anytime soon.  Homes that are coming on the market and are priced right are still selling quickly. 

We had 151 new homes come on the market this week, that is down by 19 homes from last week, which was 170 new listings last week.  So what that says is that even though this crazy cold weather is here, sellers are still putting their homes on the market.  Now keep in mind that the 151 new homes that came on the market does not include listings of manufactured homes, homes over an acre and vacant land.

This is great news for sellers since a balanced market is 5.5 months, it is definitely still a seller's market.  It al ...

10 tips to Wow Potential home buyers

Here are 10 things you can do to help buyers fall in love with your home.  Selling your home quickly has a couple different benefits, first you do not have to keep your home in pristine condition for a long amount of time.  Also the sooner you sell your home the sooner you can move on with the next step of either buying another home or whatever next adventure you have planned in your life.  

1.  Clean Everything - You can hire a company to come in and do a deep clean.  Doing this makes it easier to maintain in between showings.  You want the home to be neat and clean any time of the day for potential buyers to see it. 

2. Let the light in - You want your home to be light and bright as possible.  Open all the blinds and curtains during all showings.  If a room is in the basement make sure to have all the lights turned on.  

3.  Availability - When a buyer sees a home they like, they want to see it r ...
