Time it right. Don’t try to sell your home in winter, but do try to sell it in the spring and summer. Sellers who sold their homes in June — meaning June was the sale date on the deed of the house, so they likely put the home on the market in spring — got 9.2% more than what their home was valued at, according to data released this month from real estate analytics firm ATTOM Data Solutions. Sellers got a premium in other spring and summer months too: May (7.4%); July (7.3%); April (6.4 %); March (6.1%); August (5.8%); meanwhile December, January and October sellers got less than a 4% premium. ATTOM’s Chief Product Officer Todd Teta says that this is because demand is much higher in spring and summer in part because school is out and winter is over so people are out and about.
I started my real estate career fairly late in life by many standards. My role for the past 20 plus years has been assisting Fortune 500 companies to differentiate their organizations with a focus on their customer/buyer. I have worked for some rather large global technology firms and have developed a level of professionalism commonly found in those ranks.
It is this passion for the customer that has driven me to take this new career path as a REALTOR®. In addition to helping home sellers to sell their homes in the least amount of time for the highest and fairest price. I want to work with home buyers to find the right home at the right price with the least amount of difficulty.
With the recent passing of my father, I have added a new experience which I hope will help families going through the stressful process of preparing their loved one’s estate for the sale. My wife (a Certified Staging Professional) and I are offering our skills in this area of estate real estate by preparing the home to be listed, staging and selling the estate property, all in one turnkey service. Please look for details by clicking on the “Seller / Buyer” tab above and looking at “Specialties.”
