Real estate talk continues to focus on interest rates. While interest rates have increased faster than any of us thought possible, there are a lot of benefits to buying in this market from a consumer standpoint. One benefit is that the buyer is back to having control over the purchase process, which as a real estate professional, I think is extremely important. With that control you can negotiate price, closing dates, and repairs. And remember, the saying “Marry the home and date the rate” is true – you can leverage the power of being a buyer now and refinance your mortgage rate in the future.
As a seller in today’s market, it is more important than ever to prepare your home to list. Whether it is completing a bathroom renovation, painting, or completing that “honey do list,” we believe it is important to plan ahead so we can partner together to come up with a home sale plan. Remember, contractors are busy and the process from first contact to completed project always takes longer than expected.
