Selling Homes and Setting Records
Selling a house for top dollar is always a team effort between the realtor and the seller and the work starts well before the listing hits the market. Recently, we worked with a seller that wanted to sell but was not quite ready to put the sign in the yard. They took some time, and with our advice, made a few minor changes. That listing is under contract for what will be an all-time high resale price in Kilby Shores if it closes.
As you can see by the statistics below, the market is trending in a direction that is helpful for sellers and, with interest rates staying low, buyers still have a good amount of purchasing power. Last week, one of our listings sold and was the highest priced sale in the neighborhood in over a decade and highest resale price ever in Windsor Woods.
Our local market usually stays decent through Thanksgiving, so if you are thinking about selling you have time to get your home listed and take advantage of the current market. Give us a call, or just reply back to this email and we will come give you a free market analysis on your current home.
