Imagine this: You’re ready to sell your home. Maybe your youngest just moved out for college, a great new school opened a couple counties over, or you simply need more space for your dog. You’re pre-approved and already have your eye on the perfect new home. Think you’re all set?

Think again! Pricing your home is the key factor in making sure that home gets sold. Choosing the right price could make or break your move, so here are the major factors that influence how a home gets priced.

Taking Control

There are a lot of factors in your home selling process that you don’t have control over. These include competition, whether we’re in a buyer or seller market, interest rates, and when the right buyer finds your home.

Summertime is just around the corner, so here are five tips to keep your property clean, safe, and cost effective during the summer heat:

Clean!

Summertime is a great time to air out the home, clean under the furniture, and clear out anything you can. Consider holding a yard sale for anything you don't need, but someone else may. If you want to skip the hassle of a yard sale, consider donating to Habitat for Humanity's ReStore.

Take a Look at Your Porch

Give your porch a once-over. Wintertime sometimes causes loose nails, rotten boards, and might need to be resealed. It also keeps your deck looking great!

Safety First

Check outdoor play equipment - jungle gyms, tire swings, and even bikes that you store outside are prone to rust and

man vs machine

Companies like OpenDoor, OfferPad, Redfin Now and Zillow Instant Offers are online real estate investment companies, commonly referred to as “iBuyers.” They’re hailed for taking the guesswork out of buying and selling homes, because they provide clients with quick offers at a seemingly fair market price.

The reality is those companies are NOT who you want to work with. iBuyers can’t replace real estate professionals for a number of reasons.

For one, sellers could get more for their home. iBuyers’ offers derive from an imprecise algorithm, meaning sellers aren’t getting the most for their home. These algorithms may gather data from the local and nationwide markets, but they do not even come close to the nuance that an experienced real estate

deliberating money

The question of buying versus renting is a complicated one, and one that depends on a few factors including (but, like always, never limited to) the stage of life you’re in, the market, whether you plan on moving soon, your preference for doing yard work, and a myriad of other specificities that can greatly complicate your decision to buy or rent. But fret not! This post will lay out the basic ins and outs and will give you a bird’s eye view of the road ahead.

Why rent? Renting affords someone greater flexibility, which is perfect if you expect major changes to be coming along that will necessitate an impending change of location. Moving on from a rental property is easy because you can simply move out at the end of your lease, rather than spend

If you've been thinking about hooking up your house with some smart technology, you could be a Millennial. Or maybe you've just got the insight that Millennials are willing to pay more for a smart house? But, they're not the only ones interested in smart technology. Baby Boomers will also pay more for a smart home. 

So what's involved to "smarten" up your house?

It's not just sticking a programmable thermostat on the wall and voila you're done. Beyond the thermostat, buyers who want smart technology in their new homes really want it decked out. We're talking a smart watering system, smart doors and locks, programmable lights, security systems, smart air filtration vents, smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, smart refrigerators, and more.

While you may think you know where you need to begin before buying or selling your house, you might be surprised to learn what real estate experts know to be true in the residential marketplace.

1. "Zestimates" are often not accurate

In fact, if you're one of the millions of people across the country that turn to Zillow for real estate knowledge you may not even realize how off "Zestimates" can be. Since their home valuation algorithm is based on public and user-submitted data, there are times when the results are so far off it's comical. For example, The Seattle Times recently reported that a property in the state of Washington was overvalued by 700%!

While the likelihood of your home falling prey to a severe miscalculation in value is small,

Over a hundred years ago, the concept of a picture being worth a thousand words emerged. Noted first in 1911, it holds true today despite the many technological advancements in photography, graphic design, etc. Of course, if you think about this from the perspective of selling your home it's an absolute must that the photos of your house share its true value without words.

Here's a side-by-side of for sale photographs we see all too often in the industry (as provided by badmlsphotos.com) vs. professional pictures we take to sell our clients' homes.
