Home Buyer Tip of the Week:
A higher price point might save money over time. After making interior and exterior renovations, many homeowners find that their budget has been stretched way beyond what they initially wanted to pay for a home. For this reason, it can be smart to adjust your price point a little to help you save money over time. By paying a little more upfront for a home that has all of the upgrades and extras you want, you won’t have to worry about paying for them down the road.

Home Seller Tip of the Week:
The process of marketing and selling your home must match your objectives, priorities and needs. Be strategic and think things through before you get the ball rolling

Home Buyer Tip of the Week:
Real estate never sleeps. If you're trying to buy a hot property, you have to move quickly, or you could possibly lose it.

Home Seller Tip of the Week:
Before hiring a real estate agent, think about what your expectations are and how you would ideally like your relationship to be with your agent. What specific services and support do you look forward to receiving?

Home Buyer Tip of the Week:
Feelings often take over the first time you go through a house, but the second visit allows time to do a thorough inspection led by your head, not your heart.
#HomeBuyerTipoftheWeek #novahomebuyereducation #1sthomeuniversity

12/06/2016

Home Seller Tip of the Week:
Be flexible with the schedule for showings. Buyers are often seeing several properties in one day and if the time slot doesn't fit in their schedule, they may move on. Make your home available!
#HomeSellerTipoftheWeek #novahomesellereducation #1sthomeuniversity

12/05/2016

Home Buyer Tip of the Week:
Make sure renovations were professionally done. Paying close attention to the aesthetic details of a home is just as important as the structural details when going through an inspection. Oftentimes, do-it-yourself remodelers looking for a quick fix use low-quality materials that turn into a problem for future homeowners. The key is to make sure any renovations were done by a professional contractor using quality materials that are meant to last.

Home Buyer Tip of the Week:
Sweat equity can save thousands; If you have the skills, the time and the patience to live with dust and debris for a while, do-it-yourself home improvement projects can save you a big chunk of cash.

Properties priced within market range generate more showings and offers and sell in a shorter period of time

Remember that selling a home is a business decision. Try to take emotion out of the equation when you are deciding on a list price.

Home Buyer Tip of the Week: Just because you qualify for it, doesn't mean you should spend it! By not spending every bit you qualify for, you can open yourself up to more options and less stress. No one wants to be house poor!

Home Seller Tip of the Week:
As a seller, you control the asking price, the property condition, and access to the property. You don't control the market condition, motivation of your competition or the motivation of the buyer…all of which often play HUGE roles in how long your property is on the market and what type of offers you are getting.

Home Seller Tip of the Week:
The best offers often come when a property is newly listed. If it is priced too high, it's difficult to create the momentum necessary to sell your home at the highest price in the least amount of time

Home Seller Tip of the Week: Did you know that, statistically, if you price your home 10% above fair market value, only 2% of prospective buyers in that price range will come look at the property?
#HomeSellerTipoftheWeek #novahomesellereducation #firsthomeuniversity

10/31/2016

Home Buyer Tip of the Week:
When figuring out the price of a property, sometimes it makes more sense to look at the price of a house in terms of monthly payments instead of focusing on that big number.

Home Seller Tip of the Week:
Every property has special features that may interest buyers. What do you regard as the most attractive features of your surrounding neighborhood? How is your property different than your neighbors?

The process of selling a home can be daunting even if it's not your first time. The number one thing you want to look for in an agent: do you see yourself being able to communicate effectively with them and vice versa?
