Bradenton, Sarasota, Manatee County, or Sarasota County Home Owner, Contemplating a Move?

selling a home, selling real estate, home selling

If you’re thinking about the pros and cons of selling your home in the current Bradenton, Sarasota, Manatee County, or Sarasota County real estate market, here are a few key points to consider:

  1. Low inventory in your neighborhood with high ‘buyer’ demand is usually indicative of a seller advantage or seller’s market for that area.  If this is the case for your neighborhood or subdivision, you may end up with multiple offers or a bidding war on your home, which is a great position to be in as a home owner!  Offers over the ‘list price’ are becoming more common for high demand areas.
  2. Even if there are distressed property competitors or a higher inventory of available properties for sale in your neighborhood, if you’re selling a home and then buying a new home too, you could very well make up on the ‘buying side’ of the process what you might lose on the selling side.  In some instances, you might even gain more than you lose.  Enlist the assistance of a great real estate team/agent to give you an analysis of the real estate market for your area and to offer their professional interpretation of the facts.
  3. Although the real estate market is moving in an upward direction, after a number of ‘down years,’ you still might be able to take advantage of a ‘move up’ opportunity or of purchasing a bigger, more elegant, or newer home at a price that may not be available long or be seen again for years.

Vital Ideas to Make Moving as Easy as Possible

Moving is one of life’s most stressful events.  Here’s a quick guide to make your move as painless as possible.

Decide what not to pack

  • Now’s a good time to declutter your life by deciding which items you don’t want to take with you. Decide what you want to give away, throw away, or sell.
  • Get packing materials
  • If you’re not using a professional mover, you’ll need to get some packing materials. Bookstores often have strong boxes they don’t want anymore — call on the day of a delivery to ask for them.
  • Draw a floor plan — and use labels
  • Create a plan of your new home that you can use as a guide throughout the moving process. Label each of your boxes according to this plan. And clearly list what’s in each of the boxes.

What to pack first

  • Pack things you don’t need often first. Books, out-of-season clothes, and memorabilia make good candidates to go into boxes right away.
  • Pack “essentials” boxes
  • Mark some boxes as “essentials” and put in them the things you need on your first night in your new home.  That way you won’t waste time (and valuable energy) trying to find important things.

Food…and plants

  • Food, particularly from the freezer, isn’t easily stored, so try to use it up. Put plants in big plastic bags to avoid dirt spilling.

Make 2012 the Year of the Home Sale

Homes for sale inventory levels in Manatee County have seen more than a 30% decline, year over year, from December 2010 to December 2011.

This presents home owners who are contemplating a home sale a fantastic window of opportunity to get your home on the market for sale before the possibility of home inventory levels rising again due to the release of foreclosure properties that have been held back and delayed by the banks.

Tips for Scoring Better Credit

TIPS FOR IMPROVING AND RAISING YOUR CREDIT SCORE


Credit scores are a hot topic of discussion given todays’ world of uncertain financial news and situations.








In the housing market, Home buyers, with less than perfect credit, have difficulty qualifying for mortgages due to tighter restrictions and tougher underwriting for mortgage money. Home sellers are in unfavorable situations, in many cases due to the fact that property values have fallen below the amounts that are owed on mortgages, making foreclosure or short sale the unfortunate choice of many home owners who need to sell their homes.

How do you improve or rebuild your credit score? Here are some tips for both home buyers and home sellers… READ ON HERE: TIPS FOR SCORING BETTER CREDIT

Selling a Home in the Current Real Estate Market… Is Now the Right Time?

With Real Estate, home buyer activity increasing, foreclosure inventory diminishing in some neighborhoods, and the Military Home Buyer tax credit deadline looming on June 30th 2011, it very well might make good sense to think about getting into the Real Estate market now.. as a home seller.

Yes… there are lots of good reasons for putting your home on the market now!
The video below highlights a few more reasons why now is a good time to sell your home.
