For Sale By Owner Vs. Hiring a Real Estate Agent

Let’s take a quick look at each of these scenarios so you may best decide what works for your particular selling needs. Convenience – Sell Your Home Easily For Sale By Owner: When you sell your home by yourself, there is little convenience to the process. You will need to market the home yourself by placing “For Sale” signs in front of the home, as well as advertising it on an online platform like Craigslist for more exposure. You will also need to stage your home without advice, removing certain items and keeping the home as clean as possible if you are still living in it. You can also choose to leave the home empty if you do not live there, but you’ll still need to keep it tidy, constantly cleaning it to avoid dust or clean up after anyone that comes to view the home. Hiring a Real Estate Agent: Convenience is one of the biggest draws of hiring a […]

7 Tips to Stage Your Home For Success

Sometimes when you decide to sell a home, you’ve already moved out or you’re selling the home as an investment property. This means you’re left with an empty home, which can be a good and a bad thing. For some people, an empty house is the best way for them to imagine how their own life would fit into it. However, many real estate agents agree that a properly staged home can sell even more quickly and for a higher price. Staging a home can seem like a tedious and expensive task, but there are cost-effective and hassle-free ways to stage your home for success. Keep the following 7 tips in mind when staging your home for sale. Colorful Walls? Tone em’ Down! If the walls in your home are painted various bright colors from room to room, it’s a good idea to switch to a neutral color. Neutral colors like a light-tan or off-white color make rooms look bigger and encourage potential buyers to make the house their own. Say Bye-Bye to Curtains Let the light in!

5 Tips to Sell Your Home Fast

When put in a situation where you need to sell your home fast, you can become a bit frazzled and panicked, especially if you have a particular deadline you must meet. Maybe you are switching jobs and moving away, or maybe your payments have become too much to handle and you need to move on before you end up below water. Whatever the reason, sometimes we do not have the luxury of waiting until the highest bidder comes along before selling our home. To help expedite the process, here are five tips to help you sell your home fast.   Make the Most of the Exterior Most people that are interested in your home will either look up photos online, or drive by to see the home. This is their first impression. If the exterior is a mess, many people will decide against it immediately, unless they are looking for a fixer-upper (and in that case, they are likely not looking to spend very much.) Be sure to put maximum effort into the outside appearance of the home, so that more people are interested in actually entering it to see more.   Keep the Home Empty or as Clean as […]

Miami-Dade County to Surpass Home Sales Record for 5th Straight Year

Over the past decade, the entire United States has watched the real estate industry struggle to move past the economic downturn. However, the last four years in Miami-Dade county have proven very fruitful and it’s likely that by the end of 2015, the county will beat their previous year’s sale’s record for a fifth consecutive year. According to the Miami Herald, 12,857 homes have been sold in Miami-Dade county as of December 22. At the close of 2014, 13,521 single-family homes were sold in Miami-Dade county, meaning that the record will once again be surpassed if 665 homes are sold before the end of the year. While this may sound like a lot, in December 2014 there were 1,250 sales, so it isn’t a stretch to say the county may once again surpass last year’s single-family home sales. In addition to more homes being sold, the median price of those homes also increased from 2014. In 2015, the median price for single-family homes that have been sold thus far is at $274,900, which is a 12.2% increase from the 2014 median price, which was $255,000. (Reference: World Property Journal) It is certainly valuable to buy in Miami-Dade county again, whether you […]
