SHOULD I SELL MY HOME NOW
OR WAIT UNTIL SPRING?

I get this question all the time! While much of the decision making process should center around the personal circumstances of the individual, along with local market conditions, I have to say that it may actually be easier to sell your home in the January-March time frame than in the Spring market! The statistics are certainly in your favor!

Because sellers are convinced that winter is bad for sales, there are often less houses available for buyers to look at. The situation can become a perfect storm of sorts, with your house perfectly positioned for motivated buyers.
Low inventory is fantastic for home sellers. Basic economics of supply and demand tells us that most things sell for more money when there is less of them available.
It has been proven time and again this applies to housing. Unfortunately many people assume incorrectly that homes do not sell in the winter.
Speaking of motivated buyers, January is the most popular month for corporate transfers! People who are transferring for work are limited on how much time they can spend looking for a house. If you are in an area where people tend to get transferred for work, you can take advantage of the situation by offering your home for sale in January.

If you're considering a home sale, contact me today and I can show you how to get top dollar for your home in the current or upcoming markets!

There is a lot to remember and due for Thanksgiving, so here is a list of helpful reminders you can print out or save to your phone. I know with family over and cooking a whole Thanksgiving feast for everyone it is hard not to forget things. I hope this is helpful.

4 Tips For Selling Your Home During Thanksgiving!

1. Make Curb Appeal a Top Priority.

By the time Thanksgiving rolls around, trees have started to lose their leaves. Bare trees result in a more exposed home, so touch up the paint, clean the gutters and spruce up the yard.

2. Avoid Clutter at All Costs.
Clutter decreases the perceived size of the home which could be a deciding factor whether a buyer puts an offer in or continues their search.

3. Appeal to the Buyer’s Imagination.
Creating a warm atmosphere during the holidays when your home is being sold can help potential buyers imagine themselves celebrating their own Thanksgiving in the home. Warm colors should be abundant and those quirky holiday decorations should be kept in the attic.

4. Price The Home To Sell.
Pricing the home to sell during the holidays is extremely important. Pricing it right the first time will allow you to close quickly & write off costs during this year’s tax season!

4 Ways to Update Your Lighting Without an Electrician.

Ready to change the mood of your home, but not ready to commit to an electrician or a home reno? Relax. Learn to change the lighting without electrical wiring.

Home Lighting

Thinking about changing up the lighting in your home, but unsure whether your DIY skills include electrical wiring? The answer is simple: Just change the lighting, not the wiring. There are plenty of ideas for lighting without wiring that can change the look and feel of your living space with ease.

Light bulbs and Lampshades
Start with something simple, like changing out your light bulbs or even your lampshades. Colored bulbs come in lots of colors, including red, yellow, green, blue, pink, orange and amber. And, of course, you’ll find an even larger selection of colored lampshades at any home decor store.

Interested in taking it a step further? Consider purchasing a color-changing LED bulb. With a Bluetooth-compatible smartphone, you can control the bulb’s brightness level, activate unique effects and even change the color of light whenever the mood strikes you. Small changes such as these can have a big impact on the feel of your home.

Plug-in pendant lights
To install a ceiling light without wiring, look for plug-in pendant lights. These are single lights that hang by a cord from the ceiling and plug into a nearby outlet. Plug-in pendants are the perfect solution for aging fixtures — they give you the look and feel of modern lighting without requiring a single cut into drywall. Plus, they also boost task lighting and are easy to scale to the spot where they'll hang.

Plug-in wall sconces
Plug-in sconces are very easy to install — if you can hang a picture, you can install a plug-in sconce. Wall-mounted lighting can add symmetry as well as decorative interest to any room in your home. Disguise the cord that hangs down inside a thin metal tube running from the lamp to the outlet to give this light a more permanent look.

Wireless LED motion sensor lights
A wireless motion sensor light is one of those minor conveniences that becomes a life-changing upgrade once installed. Not only are they inexpensive and easy to install, but battery-powered lights are also great for dark areas like coat closets, pantries, attics and storage closets. Use them to light up driveways, backyards, stairs, decks, hallways — even your path to the bathroom at night.

The only drawback to motion sensor LEDs is that they run on batteries and aren’t very bright. You’re always better off buying a top-quality battery-powered light. The Mr. Beams motion sensor light shines 100 lumens to help you find what you’re looking for. It does require four C batteries, but its energy drain is minimal because of the LED bulb. As an added bonus, it comes in very handy during a power outage.

Sellers, buyers seem to be working at cross purposes in N.Va. homes market
Jun 15, 2018

Northern Virginia real estate, May 2018
The Northern Virginia Association of Realtors reported sales figures for May 2018.
Sellers and prospective buyers at times had a difficult mating ritual in May across the Northern Virginia real estate market, with the result being a year-over-year decline in overall sales.

According to leaders in the local real-estate industry, both sides need to adjust their expectations instead of demanding perfection in all facets of a transaction.

“Buyers need to prioritize their requirements and make some adjustments of their wish lists to find a home in their price range that ticks off most boxes,” said Lorraine Arora, chairman of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors.

“Sellers became overconfident and priced properties unrealistically, only to feel frustrated when savvy buyers passed them by,” said Heather Embrey, an associated broker at Better Homes & Garden Real Estate Premier.

As for buyers, Embrey said, “some decided to stay put instead of battling against multiple offers.”

Regionwide, a total of 2,459 properties went to closing last month, down 2.7 percent from the 2,526 transactions in May 2017, according to figures reported by RealEstate Business Intelligence, based on data from Bright MLS.

(Figures include sales in Arlington and Fairfax counties and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax and Falls Church.)

While sales were down, the average sales price for all properties of $607,866 was up 3.2 percent from a year before. The average was held back from being even higher due to a smaller percentage of single-family homes in the overall mix compared to May 2017.

The three legs of the market were led by that single-family sector, which rose 7.9 percent to an average $824,715. Townhouses ($432,092) and condominiums ($350,447) also posted year-over-year increases.

Those rising prices could be due in large measure to constrained inventory, which is running nearly 12 percent below the same period in 2017.

One trend popping up across the region? Buyers are coming into the market with a “stop-and-go mentality,” said Gary Lange, managing broker of the Vienna office of Weichert, Realtors.

Clients are “hot and heavy” when they begin the search for a new home, then go cold quickly, Lange said.

“Some of that may be due to a lack of inventory, they are looking for a deal, or they just don’t have a serious need to buy,” Lange said.

That lack of inventory created a feeding frenzy earlier in the year, but the dynamics are changing slightly, with cases of buyers’ remorse impacting the market.

“Sometimes buyers have successfully bid for a home, then realize the home really isn’t for them or they paid to much,” Lange said. “It is easy to get caught up in the moment when a buyer makes a hasty decision about a home for fear of losing that opportunity.”

Buyers feeling trapped after signing a purchase agreement at times have been backing out over minor home-inspection issues, said Lange, who suggested those in the industry needed to step in and have all parties focus on the big picture.

“Agents must counsel buyers and sellers about the way the housing market works,” he said.

Across the region in May, sales were up in the cities of Alexandria and Fairfax but down in Arlington, Fairfax County and Falls Church.

Ryan Conrad, CEO of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors, said the market for homes under $500,000 is strong – when such properties can be found. The under-$500,000 market comprised 45 percent of all sales during the month, most of them condominiums or cooperative apartments.

“Demand from Millennials, downsizing Baby Boomers and investors continue to be strong at that price point,” Conrad said.

Figures represent most, but not all, homes on the market. All data are preliminary, and are subject to revision.
