If you are ready to buy or sell, follow along with these 5 Summer Real Estate Trends.
-Talk with a real estate agent to learn more about the local default and foreclosure rates. It might just be time to buy!
-When buying a home, pay attention to the local amenities because they will affect how much you pay, and the resale value of the property in the future. When you are selling you home, make highlights all of the wonderful features in the description and marketing materials to attract buyers.
-Make the most of your outdoor living space no matter how big or small. Stage it and spice it up as much as you can to make it more appealing to a potential buyer. Add flowers, chairs to a balcony or porch, and make it as inviting as you can.
-Get familiar with interest rates. Take advantage of how low they have been. If they go on the rise, it could have an impact on overall affordability for buyers. Sellers could be impacted if buyers have a difficult time securing financing.
-The request for energy efficiency is growing. Get your home up to date with new windows or rooftop solar panels so the buyers sees an added bonus with the cost savings.
