According to a national survey of real estate transactions, over 90% of buyers start their search on the internet — and then spend almost two months looking for homes before finally settling on the right one for them. That two month lag time means that houses that are on the market right now are in the best position to close in the early spring. So if you’re looking to sell in the spring, you’ll want to list the house now – and get a head-start on the competition.
Updating your house will not only make it more appealing to buyers when you decide to put it on the market, but it could also save you money on your utilities until you decide to sell. For more information, talk to your local real estate professional. http://www.kellerwilliamsbostonnorthwest.com
First-time buyers stated that both proximity to their current rental location and affordability were leading criteria when buying. For sellers looking to appeal to first time homebuyers, your local real estate agent can help you make the most of these factors when it comes time to sell.
