Spring market is blooming and the buyers are back out home shopping! We’ve seen busy Open Houses for the past few weekends and homes in popular towns like ours are moving fast. Demand is there, but supply is still having a hard time keeping up. In our talks with clients there are a couple of reasons that keep coming up for why people are reluctant to put their home on the market, even with the renewed interest. Luckily we have a solution for them!
Reason 1 – My home is not ready!
Preparing to put your home on the market can be a stressful time, especially in a changing marketplace. You want to get your home in the best condition to attract the highest prices, yet don’t want to plow money into a home you no longer want to live in. Or perhaps the increase in household bills means you don’t have the spare cash right now. But without doing some work you might not get the price you want for your home. It’s no wonder some people give up on the idea of moving house before they even get started. That’s where we can help!
Introducing our White Glove Services from Zoom Casa, exclusive to Barrett Sotheby’s International Realty. Refresh, Renovate and Stage is a suite of pre-listing prep services to help homeowners sell faster, increase their sale price and manage renovations, while (most importantly) deferring payments until closing. A team of design professionals will identify which upgrades your home needs to maximize sale price, and then manage the work with no cash out of pocket. You can elevate your home and increase your pool of potential buyers with no initial outlay.
Reason 2 – Will I find somewhere to buy?
If your worry is finding somewhere to move to with this limited inventory, White Glove Services can help you there too! Buy Before You Sell is a unique service that gives you the opportunity to release 70-80% of your home’s value, so you can move forward with the purchase of your new home without having to make an offer contingent on your own sale. You can also lock in the current interest rates for your next home purchase, protecting you against market volatility. Unlike a bridging loan, there are no additional monthly payments and no impact on your credit rating. This concierge service will also take care of preparing and staging your home for sale, ensuring you achieve the maximum price for your greatest asset.
