My Observation Starting Off 2019

I have seen the market pick up right around the end of 2018. What does that mean? It means buyers are out looking, people thinking about selling are visiting open houses to see what is out there, showings requests have picked up on our listings, and several of our sellers are getting offers to purchase.

What does this mean for you? 

If you are thinking about selling, it is a great time. Please consult with a Realtor so you prepare you home in a way that is appealing to buyers. Also, let your Realtor help you figure out what needs to be be repaired, replaced, or changed; don't spend your money in the wrong places.

If you are thinking about buying, it is a great time. Inventory will be leveling out a bit and there should be some very nice options to look at. Get ready though, make sure you have met with a lender to get pre-approved NOT pre-qualified. If you think you need to pay debt down first, consult a lender. If you think your credit score is too low, consult with a lender. You would be amazed on what most buyers  "think" they need to do to get into a position to buy when in reality it is totally different. 

Call/Text me @ 630.234.7375 if I can help in any way. I have a No Strings Attached policy (and I really mean it). My desire is to be your real estate resource.
