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.

Buy first or Sell first

Sell first or buy first; this is for many homeowners the dilemma that they’re are facing. Whether to buy or sell first when you are thinking about moving up, away, to a better school district etc, etc.

There is no right answer. It really depends on your specific circumstances.

Most of my clients and homeowners who were ‘polled’ agree that it makes more sense and is less stressful if you sell your existing home before you buy a new one. The chance for you to get top dollar for your home is more likely if you are not under pressure to sell. You are also in a better position to negotiate when you buy your new home. If you are making an offer contingent on the sale of your home, you often lose negotiating leverage.

Even though no one wants to move twice, it may be well worth it to eliminate the risk of not having the home you select to buy being available. Yes, you will end up with cash in hand and a short term rental situation, however you are more in charge of the process.

If you currently own a home I would be happy to provide you with a home valuation so that you know what your home’s value is in today’s market. When you provide me with some basic information on your home, I’ll be able to give you a price range. That price range will be determined by using the information you provided, to compare your home to properties in your area that have recently sold, and reported in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Or I can provide you with a more precise valuation by briefly visiting your home.

Enjoy your day!
