LOOKING TO SELL YOUR HOME? Three recent developments make this spring a unique moment to do so quickly and at a top price.

Friends and Clients —

If you are looking to sell your home, then three recent developments make this spring a unique moment to do so quickly and at a top price.

First, mortgage rates have stabilized.

From a low of 3.41% last July, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate spiked up after the election and reached a high of 4.31% in December.

However, rates have stabilized over the past few months, and despite the increase, they are still near historical lows.

Second, jobs are up.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports 235,000 new jobs in February and 2.3 million over the past year. This reflects continuing growth in consumer and business confidence over recent months.

Third, housing inventory is at a record low.

February saw a 17.9% year-over-year drop in the number of homes on the market. This is the 100th consecutive month of year-over-year declines, going back to October 2008.

So what do these three developments mean for you?

First ...

Avoid These 5 Common Selling Mistakes

Selling your home is a complex process. Here’s what you can do to make it a little easier.

Selling your home? Get a complimentary home valuation.
Buying a home? Search the complete MLS.

If you’re thinking of listing your home this spring, there are certain things that can hinder your sale. Our goal is always to help sellers get the best offer possible on their home, and doing that involves steering you clear of common mistakes we see sellers make. Keep these five tips in mind if you plan on selling this spring:

1. Don’t overprice your home. A lot of sellers plan to price high and then come down in reductions later. That is something that is going to prohibit you from getting the best possible offer on the market. Price your home according to current conditions, not according to your ideal price.

2. Renovations and permits. If you are planning on doing any renovations to your home before you sell, make sure you have the right per ...

How to Stage Your Home for the Market

Today I’m chatting with Kelsey Snyder, who knows all about the best ways to stage your home for the market. 

Selling your home? Get a complimentary home valuation.
Buying a home? Search the complete MLS.
It’s widely known that properly staging your home for sale can result in a huge payoff. Today I’m joined by Kelsey Snyder to help me go over what you should do to prepare your home for the market. 

According to Kelsey, first impressions are the only impressions. The first thing buyers will see is your entryway, so you want to make sure coats and clutter are put somewhere else, giving your entryway a clean look.

You always need to make sure your home is “show ready.” Buyers can sometimes schedule showings with little to no notice at any time of the day. Make sure your home always looks its best while on the market. 

It’s also important to note that your kitchen and your bathroom are the two biggest th ...

Zestimates? Zillow estimates, are they accurate?

I think Zillow is a great resource for home buyers to begin a home search, but I would never recommend that anybody use the website instead of a professional Realtor. The way that Zillow estimates your home value is that they take your county tax records and then apply an algorithm that they think will tell you what your home is worth. The people at Zillow have certainly never been in your home and aren't aware of upgrades or modifications. Unfortunately, you can never trust a Zestimate. More often than not, they are wrong. We are more than happy to perform a free competitive market analysis on your home to give you an accurate value for your Greater Philadelphia property. This should provide you with a much clearer picture of what your home is really worth.As always, if you're interested in buying or selling in Greater Philadelphia real estate, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your p ...
