Buying a Home Young

Dean-Hayes

Content provided by Dean Hayes, Bay Equity Home Loans

In its February installment of the National Housing Survey, Fannie Mae saw surging Millennial confidence in the housing market, even with mortgage rates seemingly poised to rise, and home prices at near-record levels.

Along with more job security and increasing income, Millennial home buyers are increasingly married with children – all three legs of the home demand stool.

Nearly half (49 percent) of Millennial buyers reported at least one child – up from 45 percent last year and 43 percent two years ago.

As with every aspect of the marketplace, young buyers with children are the key to shaping the future of real estate.

Competing with New Homes in Today’s Market

energy-hom

If you are selling a home in Anacortes or anywhere in Skagit County, it is important to look at your competition. If your home is in a price range that has new homes listed, it is even more important that your home is move-in ready.

Beyond the updated kitchen and bathrooms, buyers want homes that will not need maintenance within the next five years. Other things to consider are that the roof and gutters need to be cleaned, the furnace serviced, appliances working, fresh paint, stain free and clean carpet, cupboards clean and organized and no mildew on decks and patios.

Even if you do not have new homes in your area, 70 percent of Skagit County buyers want move-in ready homes. They expect the homes on the market to have spotless kitchens, fresh caulking in bathrooms and perfect windows.

Of course we can sell homes that are not in excellent condition, but sellers do not get top-dollar. Some sellers value time more than money so they are willing to have a lower selling price rather than having work done.

For most of us, we want top dollar for any real estate we sell. When you allow Jean Groesbeck & Assoc. LLC to market your home in Anacortes or anywhere in Skagit, Island and San Juan Counties, you will receive professional and complimentary staging services.

If you are thinking of remodeling and want to consider resale value of your home in Anacortes or anywhere in Skagit, Island and San Juan Counties, we are happy to discuss with you. Contact us at (360) 941-3734 or Jean@JeanGroesbeck.com today!

The Benefits of Staging a Home For Sale

staging
As real estate brokers with home staging certifications, we see firsthand the effect a well-staged home can have on the mind of a home buyer. If you are thinking about selling your home, we offer complimentary home staging services that might just make you fall in love with your home all over again!

Home Sellers Are Biased
• Staging one’s own home is like asking them to be objective about their children. Unless you have truly hated your home since you bought it, it will be difficult for you to let go of your own decorating style and the emotions that have been cultivated since living there.

You Will Learn!
• Have you ever looked at a home magazine or watched the DIY Network only to fantasize about being able to decorate the way they do? Now you can learn! Stagers work with you to properly display items in your home to bring out the best features possible. It might give you the chance to learn how you want to decorate your next space!

First Impressions Must Be the Best
• Buyers will only get one first impression of your home- make it the best! You get a good feeling when you walk into a home that has been properly staged. It isn’t fake, it isn’t dirty, and it allows potential buyers to develop their own sense of comfort and connection to the home.

Look Better than Other Homes
• When a home isn’t properly staged, buyers are only driven further from your listing and closer to your competition. Keep your buyers connected with your property!

Appears Move-In Ready
• Proper, neutral home décor allows buyers to visualize living there. They will imagine their own possessions in each room, and how their family will fit into the space. It will also lessen the impact of any maintenance issues that may arise during inspection, as they are already pleased with the home’s overall aesthetics.

Looks Well-Maintained
• Again, issues have the potential to arise in almost any inspection, and a home that appears to be well-maintained from the outside will help the buyer feel more comfortable with any “internal” work that may need to be done, rather than focusing on changing things like countertops or radical paint jobs.

Looks Better in Photos
• These days, homes are typically first viewed on the internet. Well-done staging allows for better quality photos and allows a potential buyer to fall in love with the home before viewing it in person.

It’s Free!
• We offer free staging services from a certified professional to all who sign with us. Our staging professional is experienced in making a home comfortable for anyone who views it.

For more helpful staging tips or information on selling your home, reach out to us today and be sure to check out our page that explains the staging process.
