Many first time homebuyers who jumped on the tax credits from a few years ago, are now thinking of becoming first time home sellers and second time buyers. The forecasts for most real estate markets across the country for 2013 are positive, with some particularly hot areas showing significant growth predictions. These two factors are gearing up to make for an exciting upcoming spring/summer in real estate throughout the United States. With that being said, and despite the fact that the residential housing market has turned a corner, things are just as competitive as ever. For those who will be on both sides of the contract, this means you need to be diligent in your new home search, competitive in pricing your existing home, and strategic in your marketing…i.e. you need to hire a professional, experienced, and reliable realtor!
It really doesn’t matter if you live in Atlanta, Georgia or are looking to sell Boulder, Colorado real estate; if you are planning on selling your existing home and buying a new one this spring or summer, there are several things you should be doing now to prepare your property for the market. Simple home maintenance projects, de-cluttering, budget planning and basic community research are some of the first steps. These tasks will help you figure out the what, when, and where questions you have before starting the search for a qualified realtor. Finding a realtor who specializes in your area of interest and the kind of home you want will help to make the home buying experience more efficient. If your location allows it, using the same realtor as your listing and buyer’s agent, may make things more seamless, especially if the purchase of your new home is contingent on the sale of your existing home.
