Overcome Market Challenges With Experience On Your Side
Record inventory! Slowing sales! Flat prices!
If you’ve been seeing headlines like these throughout the year in our local newspapers, you may be under the impression that selling a home in metro Denver right now is harder than sending the Rockies to the World Series.
Based on my team’s experience, metro Denver’s housing market — while certainly not at its peak — is far from being in a complete slump. While sellers can expect fewer showings and more time on the market before a sale, good homes in good locations are still selling at a strong price point and within a reasonable time frame.
“Good” homes are in outstanding condition and exude curb appeal. They have well-groomed yards and attractive, well-maintained exteriors. The interiors are immaculate, with appropriate upgrades and amenities. As part of my team’s many services, we advise clients on how to prepare and stage their home to create a positive — and ultimately profitable — first impression.
Once your home is in tip-top condition, pricing it correctly and marketing it effectively become paramount — and that is where the advice and assistance of an experienced real estate broker is indispensable. We have the market knowledge and expertise to determine the proper price point that will minimize your home’s time on the market while maximizing your profit. And, while many real estate companies and brokers cut back on marketing and advertising during difficult times, we increase our marketing efforts to provide our clients with as much exposure as possible.
Today’s sellers can also find comfort in the fact that the lack of a strong run-up in local housing prices, combined with a softening home market in other states, could work in their favor. Californians, Floridians and residents of other overheated real estate markets looking to lock in their home-equity gains may move in greater numbers to Colorado, where our housing market is comparatively more affordable. Job growth in our state also continues to outpace the national rate, which could also enhance metro Denver’s attractiveness.
In challenging times, buyers and sellers need the expertise of an established, experienced broker more than ever. While we pride ourselves on offering unparalleled service in every type of market, we truly rise to the top when the market is at its most competitive. We look forward to helping you realize your real estate goals and dreams today, tomorrow or any time.
