Don’t Overprice Your House – With endless access to information on the Internet buyers are informed and educated.You’ll want to make sure your home is noticed (in a good way).

Congrats you have made the move and you listed your home for whatever reason! But you are not seeing results and getting frustrated. I am sure all your friends and coworkers have an answer for you but I'm here to tell you exactly what you need to do to make your home sell. Buckle up and read on.

Five Things That Can Stop A House Sale In Its Tracks-
You might think that once you’ve found your dream home, pre-qualified for a loan and had the inspection that you’re home free!! Just a few more days and that new home is yours...
BUT a home purchase is never truly done until those keys are in your hand, and if you’re not careful in the days and weeks leading up to your closing, you could actually put your sale at risk.

Spokane Real Estate Market Update for the week of November 15, 2019- Spokane is hitting the colder months but that does not mean Real Estate is slowing down. For the week of 11/15/19, we have about 1.2 months of inventory on the market. To have a balanced market we need around 5-6 months. We have a little over 2,000 homes that are active in Spokane county with a little more than half in escrow meaning only about 50% are available. We have 170 new homes on the market, which is 7 more than last week. With 750 homes being sold in the last 30 days we do not see the market slowing down anytime soon.
Sales prices are starting to rise in Spokane compared to last year at this time. They are up 3.5% from June 2018 to June 2019. This means your home value is slowly increasing!
It is a great time to sell since it is still a sellers market. Call me today at Haven Real Estate Group.
