Cash in on a strong seller’s market
By Darlene Massington
Oh Yes! It does say cash in, money is on the table and waiting for you. It’s time to seize the opportunity because there are too few homes and a surplus of buyers in the Fort Bend Area. Right, there is a strong seller’s market despite what others say.
Fort Bend is in an historic low in the availability of homes which is excellent news for people looking to sell their home for whatever reason including: life, downsizing or upgrading. This means home owners can ask for top dollar for their homes since there’s a high demand yet shortage of inventory. This creates an opportunity for sellers to cash in on a strong seller’s market.
Prepare your home to sell for top dollar
Increase your property’s curb appeal which is critical in making a first impression amongst home buyers. Get the yard ready: mow the lawn, trim the trees and add flowers. Make sure the inside of the home is attractive and neat. Sellers receive the biggest return from having fresh paint & carpet.
Light tan neutrals on both are what the majority of buyers are looking for with fresh paint and carpet. Be sure to: de-clutter space, update and upgrade kitchens and bathrooms, especially granite countertops. It’s important that prospective buyers are not distracted while looking at pictures of the family, degrees and etc. which is why it’s important to depersonalize the home.
Personal touches are great for family and friends, but focus should be on décor and features of the home.
Summer is one of the busiest times of the year for moves. Much is due to summer vacation, children being out of school. Again Fort Bend is the perfect place to Cash in on a Strong Seller’s Market.
