YOUR HOME DECOR

Your home decor isn’t always perfect for selling. “While your home may be beautifully decorated, it still looks like your home, not the buyer’s,” Teresa Stephenson, vice president of a residential brokerage at Platinum Properties in New York. Clutter, in particular, can make a home feel cramped. “You don’t have to pay to have your home staged, but if you don’t buy into the concept that ‘less is more,’ you’ll pay when it comes time to sell.”

Here are some of my suggestions. All that stuff you love is your stuff, and may actually turn off  potential buyers. Clean things up, especially in the kitchen. Wipe down appliances, take out the garbage. Put away toys. Sweep and vacuum up animal fur. Tidy up bathrooms and bedrooms. Air the place out. Leave a plate of just-baked cookies on the kitchen table (smells good!) Make the place look, feel, and smell inviting, but not too personal. They buyer needs to be able to envision the home as their own with their own stuff in place, not yours.

FSBOs

FSBOs net significantly Lower Profits.  For Sale By Owners tend to sell their homes for lower prices than homes sold through traditional agents via the MLS, and in many cases below the average differential represented by the prevailing commission rate according to study by Collateral Analytics. This study examined price differences between homes sold through traditional agents vs those sold by Owners from 2016 to the first half of 2017. Contact me for more information.

Even successful FSBO sellers achieve prices significantly lower than those from similar properties sold more traditionally via Realtors.  FSBO sales on average net nearly a 6 per cent lower price than an MLS sale for similar property.

BUYER INTEREST REMAINS

Buyer interest remains, however low inventory and steady housing prices continue to dictate Colorado’s housing market. The number of buyers is still strong, but with traditional seasonal cooling in conjunction with the low inventory and steady median housing prices, buyers have a bigger challenge.  Inventory supply for single family homes throughout the state remain relatively flat at 2.6 month,s while condo/townhome inventory stands at 1.9 months.  These both remain approximately 30 percent below August 2016 inventory supply.

Bottom line, if you are a Buyer, have your lender letter in hand and be prepared to act quickly.
