When you’re buying and selling a home it’s important that your agent knows the Market! It’s important when pricing and looking for a home. There are all types of techniques and the best technique to use is going to depend on the type of Market we’re in. The Salina area is definitely in a Sellers Market. Days on market are down, demand for homes are up, and the inventory of the number of homes for sale is down, so you want to be ready to jump on the right one when it does hit the market.
Working with a Real Estate agent you trust and trusting their advice is very important. Coming in with a an offer too low can risk losing out on your chance to win the negotiations of the home you want, while once you have your heart set on a home, an agent can help you to understand the value of the home and help to be sure you don’t overpay.
Starting off as a team is so Important! Sitting down with your agent and visiting about what you want in a home, and what you absolutely don’t want in a home. Prioritizing a list of wants and needs is a must. Then when you start to look for your home, everyone is on the same page. After viewing enough homes you’ll often realize the practicality or lack thereof, of your wants and help clarify your needs.
When you’re getting your home ready to list on the Market a Real Estate agent can help you with low cost suggestions of what you can do to make your home sell faster. Having your home “move in ready” can save you sometimes up to 30 to 60 days on the Market. They can also help you understand the return on investment of these low cost improvements.
