Selling your home now is different than it was just 6-12 months ago.
With interest rates and home prices rising some frustrated home-buyers are waiting for conditions to improve. Housing inventory (the amount of homes for sale) is still historically low but it continues to climb week-over-week in Ocean and Monmouth County from the depths we saw the past couple years.
With the intensity of buyer pressure lessening a bit and home inventory building, the pendulum is starting to swing from a seller's market back to a buyer's market - a normal, and ultimately healthy, part of the residential real estate cycle.
If you're still considering listing your home for sale, you can still get top dollar but it's very important how your home is listed and marketed.
In order for your listing to get the most showing activity, the most offers and the most money possible in this shifting market your home needs to stand out online and in-person.
That includes professional photography and staging, hyper-local experience, strong relationships with other local agents, a tested and proven pricing strategy, innovative social media posting and smart, targeted advertising - all of which my team and I provide to home sellers at no extra cost or expense.
It's not enough anymore to simply put the For Sale sign outside and enter the home into the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). You need to stand out, you need to persuade, you need to "market and merchandise" your home properly. Don't leave that to just any agent. Let my team and I help you achieve your home-selling goals while this market is still hot.
