For the first time in over a decade, the Real Estate Market is "NORMAL!" (gasp) That's right. Normal. Some would say this is boring without the sharp price increases and steep profits to be made by investors, but this doesn't mean it is the wrong time to sell. Let me explain.
Prices are rising, but at a much steadier pace. This is healthy. When the market slowly rises, this reduces the risk of a crash like we have experienced in the past. Safe and refreshing. Jobs are up and this is good for the confidence of buyers, which is good for sellers.
So, how do you know if the time is right for you sell? Lets get down to business.
Do you have enough equity? Most people want to get enough cash out of their sale to use as a down payment on their next home. Don’t try to figure out what your home is worth on your own. This job calls for a pro who knows firsthand what buyers are paying for similar homes in your area.Ask an experienced real estate agent for a free comparative market analysis (CMA) to be sure you are working with the right numbers.
Do you have enough money to get your home prepped to sell? You want to maximize the equity you have available and that can cost you a little bit up front. You want to talk to an expert to see what needs to be done. In this case, the expert can be a home inspector. If you have a home inspection done, you will have an idea of what issues might come up once your home is under contract. This will give you a better estimate of what kind of costs you may be responsible for when and if the buyer asks for repairs. On top of these items, do what you can to make your home. Paint, landscaping and decluttering are big ticket items.
Before you make the big decision to sell, talk to a Real Estate professional you TRUST. Someone with a great reputation and strong values who puts service above sales.

"If you're looking to do business with honest, trustworthy, professional and down to Earth people, Adrea & Josh of Smart Concept Realty LLC will surely fit that bill! I recently had both the honor and pleasure of working with Adrea & Josh of Smart Concept Realty LLC. I was the Buyer's Agent for my clients who fell in love with a home listed by Smart Concept Realty LLC - that's where our luck began! Once under contract (the easy part!), our transaction quickly became challenging on a number of different levels - none of which were caused by Adrea, Josh or Smart Concept Realty LLC. However, with a constant line of open communication and dedicated team work, we made it to an on time and successful close of escrow. There was a lot of give and take for all parties involved, but in the end it was all about doing good things for good people, and making both of our clients' dreams come true. Words to describe our recent real estate experience with Adrea, Josh & Smart Concept Realty LLC are: honest, dedicated, professional, patient & compassionate. On behalf of my clients and myself, we cannot thank you enough! On a professional level, I hope to be fortunate enough to have our paths cross again on more transactions! On a personal level, I can't wait to meet and have lunch with you! You guys ROCK!"
