Fun Things to Do This Weekend

Happy Summer to You!

The Fourth of July is now a memory for 2014 and we are halfway through the year already!  I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday!

The real estate market in the Treasure Valley is very active right now with the May median home price of $209,000; up 7% from May 2013. Our YTD median price is $205,000; up 9% over last year!  If you are thinking of selling your home, now is the time to get it on the market.  Most buyers want to get settled before school starts so they are shopping now.

Contact me to determine your home value.  When you market your home with me, I will provide a FREE home warranty through Landmark Home Warranty.

June Tips and Resources

Happy June!

Summer is officially in full swing and in my house that means soccer is winding down and camping is winding up. It has been a long Spring and we’re ready to get out and enjoy the great weather and sights that Idaho has to offer.

Summer is also the easiest time to make a move. With the nice weather and kids out of school, it is the easiest time to transition between homes. Are you thinking of making a move? Here are some tips to prep your home for sale.

Another favorite summer staple of our family is outdoor grilling! We just got a new grill after having the old one for 13 years! How do you make your grill last that long? Watch this great video on how to clean your grill the right way!

If you or someone you know is thinking of buying or selling a home, I appreciate your referrals.

Playing tough!

I hope your summer is off to a great start!

 

Top Seller Mistakes

1000 Real Estate agents were asked to rate the top mistakes that homeowners make when trying to sell their home.  The results may seem obvious to some, but these golden nuggets are something to keep top of mind when selling your home.

Wow!  Big lesson here – Don’t overprice your home when trying to sell!  Your agent will suggest a listing price based on market comparables.  The comparables are a solid basis on which to price your home because it is a true reflection of the current market.

It doesn’t matter what you think your home is worth or what you think it should sell for.  If you want your home to sell, it is imperative to price according to the current market conditions.
