Pets and real estate.

Sometimes I find myself in the dog house. You’d think I would dread being in it but I’ve got to tell you, being in the dog house gives me an opportunity to really bond with our two German Shepherds.in our back yard, my wife and I installed a dog house for two. It’s big enough to comfortly house our 100 Lbs and 80 Lbs pooches, with room to spare for me on the days that I did something wrong…

To be honest though, more and more households own a pet. Not too long ago I read somewhere that 65% of households own a pet. That’s 79 million households! When I grew up, the pet, dogs especially were, well, just a dog. Nowadays most pets are considered full-blown family members by their owners. And that’s a good thing in my opinion.

It also helps when selling your home. When staging a home, it is a good idea to put a dog bowl (empty) in the kitchen, or a dog bed on the patio. Potential buyers will think that the home is pet friendly and appreciate that you are a dog lover. Making sure the home doesn’t smell like dog or cat and doesn’t have dog hair everywhere is very important of course.

The same goes for condominium complexes, you’d be surprised how many are pet friendly, whether the complex allows a cat, a goldfish or a dog, pet owners are focussed on the pet friendliness of a home and the city they will live in.

What are you looking for???

One statistic is that home owners nowadays stay in their homes for about 5-7 years. Then the itch starts to, well, … itch…

A larger home is the next step. Growing family, baby one has arrived and (for some reason) baby number two is really not that much of a stretch. I am not a parent of humans, so I cannot be taken seriously, although, two german shepherds feels like two toddlers at times.

For the longest time, recession included, homeowners were not able to sell their home, use the proceeds, and buy their move up home. In the current economical landscape, and real estate market however, opportunities are plentiful and doors are opening left and right.

Due to the still incredibly low interest rates (yep, they are low, google the stats) there are more buyers than sellers. A seller’s market is still going on. Put your home on the market at a competitive price point, market the heck out of it and you have a good chance that you will be playing ‘poker’ with several buyers, increasing the purchase price and better the terms of the contract. I am here to help you with that process.

One of my listings, still in escrow, in Torrance is in escrow with an accepted offer well above the current market values. Stretching the market to new heights.

Are you ready to find out what is possible for you? Call or text me today. I’d love to help you or anyone you refer to me.
