Put Your House on the Market Now for Best Results!

While there isn’t necessarily a “season” for selling your home it is widely accepted that most people don’t want to move when the weather is bad.  Carrying your selling your homeboxes and furniture through 6 inches of snow and slush is not appealing for anyone.  This is why I am writing this now to let you know that right now is a great time to list your home.  Houses, especially in Pendleton, are in such high demand that the amount of time it would spend on the market is minimal.  With that being said it takes an average of 45-60 days once the home is under contract to settle.  This would put moving day in September when the weather is usually mild and the fall months are beginning, an ideal time to move!

Another reason that selling now is a great idea is that your curb appeal will be in full swing unlike many of the other months.  Any flowers you have are blooming, the grass is green, and the trees are providing ample shade.  During the winter your home (and everyone’s home for that matter) does not look nearly as inviting.

As I mentioned before the demand is high in almost every market with makes for an easier sell.  And with interest rates softening, the supply dwindling, and the demand growing it makes for the perfect storm of home selling.  Be sure to take advantage of this time!

Last but not least if you are considering selling your house it is time to move on.  Whether you want to move closer to family, downsize after the kids leave, or find more space for your growing family it is time to capitalize and take the plunge.  If you have any questions or want a free evaluation on pricing your home feel free to give me a call at 317-572-5589~ I look forward to hearing from you!

Improve Your Curb Appeal in 2 Hours or Less

Every realtor can attest that improving your curb appeal is one of the best ways to sell your home.  If you can’t get people to take interest in  your projects with texthome from the outside there is a slim chance they will be interested in seeing the inside.  The great part about it is that you don’t need to spend a lot of time, money, or effort to make a big impact.  Here are some of the easiest and most effective weekend projects that you can do to in 2 hours or less.

* Eliminate all Clutter:  While it may be easier to leave the kids bicycles, the watering cans, and your yard tools in the yard, it automatically makes the potential buyer assume that since the yard isn’t clean than the house wouldn’t be either.  Keeping your clutter under control gives the impression that you keep your house neat and tidy.

* Give Your Mailbox a Make Over: It’s amazing what a big difference that a fresh coat of paint will make on your mailbox.  As people are driving and trying to find your address one of the first things that they look at is your mailbox.  If it is faded, chipped, or falling apart it is the first thing that they will think about the rest of your home.  In as little as an hour you could freshen it up with an inexpensive can of spray paint!

* Update or Replace Your Front Door: The front door is obviously the first step to getting inside your home.  If the door squeaks, has a flimsy door handle, or shows a ton of wear and tear it does not give the best first impression.  Head down to your local hardware store and buy new hardware for the door, something that makes a statement.  Remove the door from the hinges and slap on a fresh coat of paint, preferably an eye catching hue.  Once your done the impact will immediately be obvious!

* Plant Flowers:  You don’t need to revamp your entire landscaping but adding a few tulips here and some brightly colored daisies there are very attention grabbing and can make a whole yard appear manicured. And speaking of yards, it’s always a good idea to keep your yard regularly mowed when you are trying to sell.

Do you ever sit back and long for the good ole days?  The days when gas didn’t cost an arm and a leg, when neighbors were friends,  and 907 w 8th stpmwhen kids had an inherit respect for their elders.  Well we don’t exactly have a working time machine but we do have a house on the market that can at least momentarily transport you back to a simpler time (but with modern conveniences, so the best of both worlds).  This beautifully renovated historic home is located on 8th St. in Anderson and features a great deal of custom additions as well as original pieces such as the custom cabinetry and lighting and the hardwood floors are the restored originals.  Just walking through the door you get the sense of history and hardwood that went into making this one of the most beautiful interiors in all of Anderson.  It is the perfect combination of old world glamor and new world comfort that creates the ideal atmosphere for any family.  And unlike many other older homes this one comes equipped with a new furnace, water heater, plumbing, and electric so that it will function like a newer up-to-date home but still possess the character of an older home.  This is truly a sight to see so if you want to set up your own tour contact me ASAP as this one won’t last long.
