How Can You Take Advantage of the Current Interest Rates?

Interest rates are still at an all-time low, but they won’t stay that way. Whether you’re buying or selling, you need to act now to take advantage of them.

Over the last several years, interest rates have remained at an all-time low.

If I had a billion dollars to bet, though, I would put that money on interest rates rising sometime in the future. The reason I say that is the fact that they’ve been artificially kept at the level they’re at and have stayed that way for so long. When will this rise happen, exactly? Nobody really knows.

There are other global economic factors at play here as well. You know about Brexit, but there is also the matter of the IMF replacing the U.S. dollar with the Chinese Yuan as the world’s reserve currency.
Whether you’re buying or selling, now’s the time to act.
What does this all mean?

If you’re in the market to buy a home, now is a great time to do so. For the moment, you can still lock in these all-time low interest rates. If you’re in the market to sell, you’re in the same situation. This is because higher interest rates lower home values, and their inevitable increase will shake up the market.

If you have any questions about what’s going on in the real estate market, feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email. I’d be happy to talk with you!

Maximizing Your Home's Value When Selling

How do you get the most value out of your home sale? It's never too early to start this conversation, whether you're selling in three months or three years.

There are certain things you can do when selling a home to ensure the highest value in return. When you're thinking about improving the value you get from your home, it's also never too early to start thinking about it.

About three months ago, in fact, I actually met with a homeowner that intends to sell their home three years from now. This house backs right up to a parkway with no buffer zone, so I recommended that they plant a buffer zone with some evergreen trees so that when they sell in three years, the home is more appealing.

You may not be three years ahead like these sellers, however, so what can you do right now?
You'll get the best return on investment from paint and carpeting.
The biggest bang for your buck you'll get from improvements is with paint and carpet. Almost 100% of the improvements we do to maximize profit for sellers involves painting the home or cleaning or replacing the carpet. Other areas where you can make upgrades include the kitchen, bathrooms, and curb appeal of the house. Every single home is different.

Again, it's never too early to start thinking about this conversation. I would be happy to put you in touch with painters, contractors, or any type of service workers you need from my preferred list. The best part of working with a professional like myself is that you can leverage my relationship with them knowing that they will treat you right since we send them a lot of business.

If you'd like some more info about how we can help you start talking about improving your home's value or you'd like a recommendation for a contractor, give me a call or send me an email. I'd be happy to help!
