Staging Secrets to Boost Your Sale Price

Are you the kind of seller who thinks that staging is just another added cost as part of the process of getting your home ready for sale? If you are, you’re definitely going to want to read this.

Staging is the process of styling and furnishing your home to show off its best features and help buyers feel like they could see themselves living in the property.

Studies have shown that staging can increase the price that your home sells for. Instead of being just another cost, staging can make you back all the money you spend on it and then some!

What’s the Worst Part of Renting?

In our crazy real estate market, many would-be buyers are turning to renting rather than buying. And I don’t blame them. But it might not be their best choice.

Renting has pros and cons, like anything else. In fact, if you’re not ready to settle down in one place or know that you’ll be moving to a different location in the near future, renting is absolutely the way to go.

Do You Know How Much Equity You Have?

Have you checked in on your home’s equity lately? Now is a great time to see what your equity looks like because, chances are, it’s increased!

But let’s review what equity is before we jump into how you can find out how much you have. Equity in your home is how much money you have in your home–it’s the amount of your home that you actually own. The more equity the better because that means you’ll get more money from the deal when you sell your home!

What's Going on with the Housing Market?

Have you heard that interest rates are rising? Recently, the federal reserve raised interest rates to help curb inflation. Experts are now projecting that standard interest rates will range from 3.5% to 4.5% in 2022.

For many buyers, this news can feel incredibly discouraging. Home prices are already high, but now you have to pay higher interest rates on top of it, right?

Not so fast. Our interest rates right now are actually super low, especially when we compare them to the interest rates of the 1970's-2000's.

Should You Price Your Home For Negotiations?

One of the most nerve-wracking things about selling a home is pricing it. Pricing makes such a big difference in how your property is perceived by buyers—and ultimately, it determines how much money you can get out of your home.

That means you want to get it right so you don’t lose out on any money. But going too high can scare away the perfect buyers. So what are you supposed to do?
