Selling in Winter

Many clients ask me if the housing market slows in the cold months. To their amazement I always answer, no. The cold actually weeds out the “lookie loos”. When it’s dark, cold and snowy, home buyers with little or no motivation to actually buy a home stop looking. The buyers who are ready and motivated to buy don’t let seasonal elements deter them.

Please keep this in mind when you are ready to Buy or Sell real estate of any kind, in FSJ it's always a 'good time' to make a real estate move. Whether it is your first purchase, contemplating a move to the country side, creating investment strategy or upgrading your business, I can help.

Renovate to sell?

Renovating your home to keep it long term is totally different than trying to increase the “Saleability” of your home. “Saleability” – to change an existing feature in your home that you may love, but most buyers may not prefer like extreme paint colors. This is important to keep in mind as frequently when I work with buyers they will remember a home by referring to it as the “Pink Living Room House”. REALTORS® frequently remind buyers “it’s only paint”, but what a buyers see’s, is what a buyer remembers, the “Pink Living Room”. Paint will transform your home and make it feel fresh and loved. Contemporary color will also help the buyer feel they don’t have to paint again. Call or text me, I would be happy to do a pre-sale consultation with you to discuss if there are any simple cosmetic upgrades that could improve the “Saleability” of your home and put more money in your pocket.

Call or text my cell 250 794 1515 for immediate professional advice. I will show you all the homes listed by all the different Real Estate Companies that meet your “Vision”.
