Are you considering moving in 2018? There are 3 things you really must know now!
1. You need to know how to prepare your home for sale.
Many homeowners are wasting their money and their time making improvements to the home that don’t make the home more sellable or provide a return on an investment that was made or even provide a return of that investment that was made. Often homeowners are replacing things like fences, updating water heaters, adding solar, spas and even pools. Many things that homeowners might want to do to prepare their home for sale turn out to be a complete waste of time and money. I have discovered a five-step simple process called LPFMC. LPFMC stands for Landscaping, Paint, Flooring, Minimization, and Cleaning. The five-step LPFMC process always helps the home look bigger, brighter and better and is an easy, affordable way to prepare your home for sale.
2. You need to know how to transition from one home to the next smoothly.
Do I sell the home first? Do I buy then sell? Do I sell then rent? There are many options and you need to know the benefits of each.
3. You need to know how the market is and what my home is really worth.
Here is some good news. In a recent California Housing Market Forecast Report for 2018-this report anticipates higher prices in the Bay Area, more sales in the Bay Area, but it also anticipates challenges associated with the proposed tax plan and higher interested rates. The most recent home sales in your neighborhood have a major impact on the value of your home.
By knowing these 3 things, you will be well on your way to begin the process of being ready when it is time to make that move in 2018!
