At first glance, the holiday season might not seem like the ideal home-selling season, but there are considerable advantages to listing during this unconventional window of time at the end of the year. Low inventory, serious buyers, and holiday cheer giving your neighborhood a boost in curb appeal all factor into the real estate landscape.
Happy holidays from all of us at Laura Dandoy RE/MAX Resources!
Claremont is a thriving city where there’s always plenty to do and see, and it consistently ranks as one of the best places to live in the United States. With its beautiful homes, historic buildings, and flourishing businesses, it’s no wonder why so many people love to live and work there.
Vetting real estate agents is an important part of selling your home. Between pre-sale preparations, locating a buyer, and closing the deal, selling can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. The agent you choose will affect how easy (or how intrusive) that experience will be. It could also impact the final sale price on your home.
Once you decide to sell your home, things move rather quickly. Between consultations and renovations and open houses, a lot happens in a few short weeks. Without the proper planning, you can lose track of the process and end up frustrated, overwhelmed, and underpaid for your property.
The most important thing to remember when selling a home: preparation matters. The better prepared you are, the more likely you are to lock in the selling price you want.
Since 2012, I Like Pie in Claremont Village has been baking individual-size pies from scratch — and earning rave reviews. We sat down with founder and owner Annika Corbin to discuss her journey as a small business owner, her favorite pie, and what makes the City of Claremont such a special place.
So you’ve decided to sell your home. Congrats! The next step you take will impact how the next few months of your life play out — how much time you spend dealing with contractors, researching real estate legalese, and so on. It could also directly impact the amount you receive in the sale of your home.
What options do homeowners have when selling their property (and why should anyone selling a home contact a real estate agent pronto)?
The moving process can be as exciting as it is stressful. As you plan to sell your home, the opportunity to clean house, start anew, and organize your home in a way that inspires joy shouldn’t be overlooked. But how do you determine what stays and what goes?
When you purposefully downsize, you cut down on moving expenses (and reinvigorate your home decor at the same time). Consider these tips for downsizing to make your move a lot easier:
“This week we sent the kids home with a big bag of art, so our parents are pretty excited. They get it,” says Gabrielle Heide, owner and operator of Studio Claremont.
When we sell a home, we want to make sure we get the most bang for our buck—and not miss anything too evident during the selling process. Not surprisingly, many statistics surround the question, “When is the best time to sell my house?” and in some cases, it may be wise to wait, while certain circumstances can bring you to sell immediately.
Our homes are our sanctuaries. When it’s time to move, however, we need to reimagine it for potential buyers. When you stage a house for selling, it’s a different thought process than creating a space for yourself and loved ones. You have to appeal to a broader audience, and that means hiding personal items or rearranging furniture. All sellers want there home to have the most expansive reach possible. Therefore, consider following these steps to staging your home before buyers walk in your front door.
