Increase Your Home’s Value in 2013

In the New Year you may be looking to get rid of that holiday weight! Maybe you’re looking to get rid of your old home and buy a new one. Well, if you’re looking to sell your home in 2013 there are a few things you can do to add value to it.

Remodeling kitchens and bathrooms have been, and probably always will be, the number one way to add value to your home. Kitchens and bathrooms are so crucial to any home that by adding or remodeling these rooms you will surely increase the value of your home.

Making sure the master bedroom is luxurious is another way to add value to your home. Master bedrooms are a high priority on a lot of buyers’ lists. By having your master bedroom in perfect condition you are likely to get more for your home.

Roofs and windows are also important to the value of your home. The outside should look just as good as the inside. Also, having proper roofs and windows can be more economic and eco friendly. Seeing as heat can escape through windows and roofs it’s important to make sure these are in working condition.

Those are just a few of the things you can do to your home to add value before selling. If you don’t update your home before selling you could be missing out on a pretty penny. Be sure to at least consider some of these changes to your home in 2013.

Twin Cities Bounces Back

As 2012 has come to a close the housing market has really taken a turn for the best. It’s no secret that since the economy crashed the housing market took a hit. The Twin Cities area is seeing the market is the best it’s been since 2004.

Over the past year seller activity has made a large increase, distressed sales have decreased significantly and buyer demand has gone way up.  So many people are looking to buy homes in the lovely Twin Cities area and it’s helping out the market significantly. This combination serves to prove that the housing market in the Twin Cities area is healthy. If you were worried about selling your Twin Cities home, you can put those fears aside.

Research shows that not only have homes been selling about 35 days faster than usually, but the supply of homes is much lower.  Usually there is about 6-7months worth of homes in “inventory”, if you will. In 2012 the average supply was about 3 months worth. The metro area has been surging with eager buyers.  To see this kind of drop in inventory is definitely a good sign.

So what does this mean for you? Well, if you’re trying to sell your home you shouldn’t have a hard time. If you’re trying to buy a new home make sure you act quickly.With houses flying off the market you don’t want to lose one that you love.

Buy Your Home Over The Holidays

Just as the holiday season is a good time to sell your house, it’s also a good time to buy.  If you are looking for a new home and you have the time to do it over the holiday season, then it’s the perfect time to purchase. Here are a few reasons why.

People usually set goals to be in their new homes by the end of the year.  As the holiday season nears, so does the end of the year.  With people so ready to start the year off right it’s likely that you will be able to get your home at a price you can afford.  You will also be able to move into your new home right away!

Another reason to talk to your Minneapolis realtor about buying your home during the holiday season is because people are more generous.  The holidays bring about a time of caring and understanding. This makes it easier to get the sellers to lower the price of the home by appealing to their good nature.

There is also less competition during the holiday season because there aren’t a lot of people willing to spend that kind of money during a time of year when money is already tight. With fewer buyers to compete with, it’s another way you can get the price of the house you’re looking at lowered.

Buying your home in the off-season can make buying a home much more affordable. So if your looking for homes for sale, look during the holidays. It will not only save you money, but it will save you time since the owners are likely looking to move before the end of the year.

Sell Your Home Over The Holidays

The holiday season is a time filled with friends and family all gathering together. This is why you may find it surprising that this is a great time to sell your house.  It might make your holidays a little more hectic, but if you’re serious about selling your house it may be the perfect time.

People that are looking to buy homes over the holidays are serious.  Since the holidays are already so busy and financially straining if somebody is looking to purchase a home; they are truly looking to buy.

Having serious buyers is always a good thing when you’re trying to sell your home. What makes it even better is that during the holidays there is less competition.  The holiday season is so hectic that not a lot of sellers are willing to list their house at this time.  If you’re ready to handle listing your home these serious buyers aren’t looking at a lot of options, making your home even more appealing.

The holidays are not only stressful, but also filled with emotion because of all the friends and family coming together.  This makes it easier for potential buyers to get attached to your house, which will make them want to buy it.

People generally have more time to look at houses during the holidays. Lots of people have time off from work making it possible to come during the week.  With people so readily available to look at your home you have a higher chance of finding a buyer.

Make sure your Minneapolis realtor knows you’re serious about selling your home over the holiday. If you can list your house during this time, you definitely should. You’ll be happy you did.
