Is Spring the best time to list my house?
People buy homes year-round due to new jobs,
retirement and lifestyle changes. While Spring marks the start of the busiest season
– there are advantages and disadvantages when you are selling.
Properties shine in the Spring when flowers are in bloom
and the days are longer giving buyers more time to see your home. Also, families
start looking so they can move before the beginning of the school year.
However, more inventory means more competition for your
home. Buyers can be much pickier with their wish lists when there are more
homes to choose from in your neighborhood.
Make your decision based on when want to move. We will
give you data on the median time on market for homes in your neighborhood.

Should I upgrade my 1960s kitchen before I put my house on the market?
Your decision will depend on a couple of factors:
How does your kitchen compare to the rest of the house - have there been other upgrades to the house that really date your kitchen?
How much time do you have before you want to sell your house and do you have the budget?
If you are remodeling the kitchen for the sole purpose of selling, the most important consideration is whether or not you will get your investment back.
A coat of paint on the walls and new countertops can update a kitchen. You can also buy new doors for most cabinets to upgrade their appearance.
