The Land O’ Lakes Real Estate Market is Strong

March is usually one of the slower months for real estate sales in Land O’ Lakes as buyers and investors prepare for the spring season, but it was still 25% busier than this time last year. We are finally starting to see an increase in new listings by 34% over last year. This is very good news for homebuyers who have been struggling to find the right house because there have been so few homes on the market.

Home Selling – A Checklist of Things You Need to Do

Home Selling

Before you put your house up for sale, it is essential that you prepare your home to make it as appealing as possible. First and foremost, setting the right sales price from the start will ensure your house is considered by the largest pool of buyers from the date that it is listed. If your house is priced too high many buyers and real estate agents will simply remove it from consideration. Assuming your house is priced correctly, the following tips will help you attract buyers so you can sell your house as fast as possible.

Marketing and Advertising – Even if your house is priced below market and it is the most beautiful house on the street, you have to make sure homebuyers know it is for sale. Make sure your real estate agent has listed your house on all the major real estate search engines. These sites should include: Realtor.com, Zillow, Facebook, and any other real estate sites that are used in your area. Social media is used by nearly every home buyer. Once your house is listed, view your listing online and make sure there are numerous photos of your property. Many homebuyers use the Internet to search potential houses by price and then they look at photos. If the photos of your house are not in the best possible light, you could be losing potential homebuyers.

Curb Appeal – Since you’ve pulled in potential homebuyers to see your property, you have to make the outside of your property as engaging as could reasonably be expected.Make sure the grass is cut, the weeds are pulled, the bushes are trimmed, and flowers are planted. If anything is damaged in the front of your house, such as siding, downspouts, windows, the front door, or mailbox, they should be addressed before listing your property.

Update the Interior – When potential buyers walk into your property, the entrance way and the main rooms of the house should be clean and inviting. You can paint rooms a neutral color, update flooring, and updated fixtures. You don’t have to spend a lot of money; average quality updates should be fine for most homebuyers. Brighten up rooms by opening the drapes and using higher wattage light bulbs. This will make the rooms look greater and brighter. Additionally, search for glaring issues in your house. These might be as minor as electrical outlet covers, lighting apparatuses, and register covers. Including an alert framework ought to additionally be considered.These updates may be very minor, but may change the appearance and allure of your house to potential buyers.

De-clutter and Clean – Take time to remove personal items and clutter from the house. Thoroughly vacuum and clean each room to make them in as inviting and appealing as possible. If possible, hire a cleaning service to do a deep cleaning prior to showing the house.

Board Your Animals – If possible, board your dog or cat prior to listing your house. This will allow your house to be shown at any time and will eliminate potential smells and odors that a cat box or dog may leave lingering on the property. Potential homebuyers will be rushed and turned off if your dog is locked in a room barking wildly while they are viewing your property.

Provide Positive Information – Leave positive information on the kitchen table for potential buyers and realtors who view your property. This information should include nearby dining, shopping, attractions, and recreation. Also, if the school system is highly rated, make sure information regarding the school district is provided. This information could be the difference between an offer on your house instead of another property.

Effectively promoting and improving the appearance of your house will not only result in a higher sales price but most likely a quicker sale. Continuously ensure before tolerating any offer that the purchaser is pre-endorsed. The exact opposite thing you will need to do is to take your home off of the business sector for a potential purchaser who may not meet all requirements for an advance. Continuously solicit to see a duplicate from any potential homebuyers’ pre-endorsement letter to confirm their capacity to acquire contract financing. An expert stager will take a gander at your home from a crisp and unemotional point of view. They have been prepared to see your home as an item, highlighting resources and making light of imperfections. By utilizing a mix of your furniture and accessories, adding new accents to update the look, and strategically incorporating a few “designer tricks-of-the-trade”, a stager is able to create the model home WOW effect . . . while appealing to your target market.

Home staging focuses on fast, dramatic and affordable transformations to ensure that your home will be the one remembered from the real estate tour. Once staged, the house will be “showcase ready”, which will also make it “photo ready”! Since 85% of home buyers are using the internet to determine which homes to even visit, photos of professionally staged rooms will set the listing apart from the rest.

Finally, home staging has been proven to be an affordable investment which reaps a large return on dollars spent . . . an investment few sellers can afford not to make in today’s highly competitive real estate market. And remember, staging almost always costs less than your first price reduction.

It’s Not You, It’s Not Your Home, It’s Your Real Estate Agent

pile of cash

See this pile of cash? It doesn’t belong to you and you know why? Your realtor is being unrealistic and greedy about your property.

We have a client who is interested in a townhome in a particular area. We have one in this neighborhood and know without a doubt the competition is over-priced. Rentals sit 6-months, 8-months, 1-year or longer vacant. Why? Your rental is over-priced. Period.

I called a realtor to ask about a rental that has been listed and vacant for 6 months to see if the owner was flexible in the price. I told her that I had a great client interested in the home, but wanted to pay a more reasonable rent for the unit. With disgust, I was told that the building covered all utilities which was included in the rent. I told her I knew that was not true because we have the exact same property in the neighborhood. Well not the same. Our is updated and upgraded. She then back-peddled and said well the owner wants to rent it furnished only. On the MLS listing, it states “furnished, but will consider unfurnished.” So the ad was misleading or the realtor was a liar.

I asked again about the price. I stated about the home being listed for 6 months and sitting vacant. Is the owner flexible? Again, I was given the run-around. Never once did she say she would present an offer to the owner.

Can this realtor read minds? I can’t. As property managers, we present all offers to owners. Ultimately the decision lies with you, the owner. You should decide whether to reject or accept an offer. Not a realtor.

I believe putting the owner in the driver-seat is what gives us so many happy clients and great reviews.

I never asked what the commission would be on the property. I never wanted a commission. I wanted to find a home that met my client’s needs.

Did this realtor ever stop and think, “my client has been losing thousands of dollars because his home is sitting vacant?” No. She heard reduced price, saw her commission drop and never consulted the owner. Would the owner accept a lower offer? We will never know because he will never be asked.

My client never saw the property or put an offer in. Why? A realtor discouraged an amazing tenant from a property that needed a renter.

So, this pile of cash continues to sit untouched.
