It’s Time To Sell
By Dan Polimino
As you are reading this we are 30 days away from the start of the selling season. The Spring/Summer selling season is the best time of year to sell your home and it seems each year the season starts earlier and earlier. Remember people are looking to move at the end of the school year and move into a new school district in time. Most peoples homes look better in the spring and summer so inventory goes up bringing out more buyers.
Timing is Everything
This year is going to be different. We are unabashedly telling people your home needs to be on the market by mid-march, we need to be sold and close by June. You may have noticed all the headlines about the slump in the real estate market and most of it’s true. The last 5 months of 2018 the market took a considerable dip. Most professionals believe the seller’s market peaked last summer. While it’s not a buyers market yet we are predicting a very modest gain or at the very least a flat market for home appreciation.
The reason why we are telling people they need to be sold and closed by June is because we are fairly sure we are headed for another dip in the market this fall. All signs point to another very slow August, September, October, November, and December. So if you are thinking about moving you NEED to speak with us now. We don’t have a crystal ball but all economic signs seem to corroborate this prediction.
Selling your home and finding a new home does not have to be like a root canal without novocaine. Trust a professional real estate team like The Hawaii Team that sells 100 homes a year. You may have had a bad experience with a realtor in the past and it’s true not all agents or teams are created equal. Give us just 30 minutes of your time and if we haven’t shown you value then you can throw us out at any time during the presentation.
Most of you are worried about where you are going to go. We can help with that. We have a shadow inventory of homes for sale not on the market. In addition, we can search for homes not on the market in the specific neighborhoods you want to be. Finally, new construction may be an option. We know all the hot new communities and builders.
We look forward to speaking with you about your goals and dreams. Let us know how we can help, we are at your service.
