Now is the time to find an experienced sellers agent!
The kids have graduated and moved away – the nest is empty, and you feel like it’s time to downsize. Does this describe you? Many of us reach this point in our life, and it means we’re ready for change and a new adventure. It’s been said that there’s no time like the present, and that is especially true if you’re in the market to sell your home.
Prescott is currently experiencing a seller’s market. If you’ve lived in Prescott a long time, you know that home prices are at an all-time high. Your friends and neighbors have been downsizing and making the most of their home equity. But guess what, the real estate developers know it’s a seller market, too. New housing developments have been popping up all over the Quad-City area and more are on the way. Prescott is getting ready for rapid expansion.
Your home is your greatest asset. It’s a long-term investment that can help you live more comfortably well into your golden years. But these new developments mean the supply and demand will shift. More houses mean more competition for selling your home. Even though Prescott is expected to see an influx of new home buyers, you will have to compete with all of the new homes being built. When it comes to any investment, timing is everything. If you wait to put your house on the market, you may have to settle for less.
Before you take the step to sell your home, it’s important to find the right real estate agent. An experienced real estate agent will be able to guide you and help you get the most out of your home. They know the market, and they know the tricks of the trade to help you attract the right buyer.
An experienced agent will also let you know how to get your home “show ready.” This may seem like a small issue, but a home that has the right look could mean the difference between finding a buyer in weeks instead of months. New home buyers want to know they won’t have to put a lot of work into their new home.
