    Hiring a Top Agent to Sell Your Home Might Cost You Nothing!

    The Most Important Part is Putting More Money In Your Pocket

    There is no doubt that it is easier to sell your house when using the services of a local real estate professional. The agent will provide:

    Greater exposure to more buyers
    The skills of a professional negotiator
    A layer of protection from possible legal liabilities
    Professional guidance in navigating any pitfalls that may arise
    A level of safety while showing the home

    There is no doubt that these services are valuable to any family that decides to sell. The only question is – how valuable? One of the main reasons For Sale By Owners (FSBOs) don’t use a real estate agent is because they believe these services are not worth the fee an agent charges. But, what if those services didn’t cost the seller a penny?
    A study by Collateral Analytics, however, reveals that FSBOs don’t actually save anything and, in some cases, may be costing themselves more by n ...

    More Americans Say Now is a Good Time to Sell

    Recently released data from Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey revealed that rising home prices were the catalyst behind an eight-point jump in the net percentage of respondents who say now is a good time to sell. The index is now 21 points higher than it was this time last year.
    Overall, 62% of Americans surveyed said that now is a good time to sell (up from 58%), while 26% of respondents said that now is not a good time to sell (down from 30%). The net score is the difference between the two percentages, or 36%.
    According to CoreLogic, home prices are now up 6.7% over last year and 78.8% of homeowners with a mortgage in the US now have significant equity (defined as 20% or more).
    As home prices have increased, more and more homeowners have realized that now is a good time to sell their homes in order to take advantage of the extra equity they now have.
    At the same time, however, rising prices have had the exact opposite impact on the good-time ...

    Moving-Up to a Luxury Home

    Moving-Up to a Luxury Home
    If your house no longer fits your needs and you are planning on buying a luxury home, now is a great time to do so! We recently shared data from Trulia’s Market Mismatch Study which showed that in today’s premium home market, buyers are in control. 
    The inventory of homes for sale in the luxury market far exceeds those searching to purchase these properties in many areas of the country. This means that homes are often staying on the market longer which can eventually lead to a price change.
    Those who have a starter or trade-up home to sell will find buyers competing, and often entering bidding wars, to be able to call your house their new home.
    The sale of your starter or trade-up house will aid in coming up with a larger down payment for your new luxury home. Even a 5% down payment on a million-dollar home is $50,000.
    But not all who are buying luxury properties have a home to sell first.
