  If you’ve been searching for a new home there's no doubt you’ve seen the term, “move in ready.” This description sounds very appealing, but understanding what it actually means is important so you have the right expectations when starting your real estate search.   First it’s important to remember that the descriptions in real estate listings are written by the listing agent or broker. There is no set industry standard for what agents can say in their listings. While there are guidelines and rules which prevent blatant lying, most home buyers have become aware of the fluffy language used to market a home for sale.

This is an extremely important topic, because lately I have been realizing that a lot of buyers (and some sellers) do not factor in closing costs when considering purchasing/selling a home.

So what exactly are closing costs?    Closing costs are the fees and charges paid to finalize the purchase/sale of a home. Both sellers and buyers will incur closing costs during a transaction.

As we begin another year, everyone wants to know: “Where is the housing market headed in 2019?”

It’s not only buyers, sellers, and homeowners who are impacted. The real estate market plays an integral role in the overall U.S. economy.  Fortunately, key indicators point toward a stable housing market in 2019 with signs of modest growth. However, shifting conditions could impact you if you plan to buy, sell, or refinance this year.

HOME VALUES WILL INCREASE

A continual rise in real estate value is where our market’s headed. Freddie Mac predicts housing prices will increase by 4.3 percent in 2019.1  While the rapid price appreciation we witnessed earlier in the decade has slowed, several factors continue to push prices higher.  Those factors

Tackling the misconception of "off season"

The general assumption in most markets is that spring/summer is the best time in real estate to buy or sell and the fall/winter is “off season”. Likewise, many realtors will advise clients to wait until the spring to list their home. 

The truth is, there are many advantages to buying or selling in the so called “off season”. While the market may be quieter, real estate never stops completely!


Reason #1: Less competition.

Take a look at the graph above showing new listings over the past 3 years. You can see a clear trend. The most new listings hit the market between March-June. They continue to decrease the remainder of the year with the lowest new

 A common question sellers ask when I’m touring their house during the home evaluation is “Why should I choose you?”.  It’s a fair question, and arguably the most important question they should ask when we’re meeting.  So why should a seller choose me?  Well let’s take a look:
