Sell Your Home This Spring

With inventories low in parts of Seacoast, here are 3 reasons to put your home on the market to gain a competitive and financial edge.

1.  Demand Is About To Skyrocket

It's obvious that the spring and summer months are the hottest months for home sales.  Hoping to beat the rush, many smart buyers will be out early this spring.  And there were a lot of buyers who put their house hunting on hold with the severe winter weather around the Seacoast.  They are now ready, willing and able!

2.  There is Less Demand... For Now

Home sellers will be putting their homes on the market in late spring and early summer.  There may also be more home sellers that now can afford to move with returning positive equity as home prices have risen again over the last year.  If you wait until the summer to list, there will be a lot more competition with an increased supply of houses coming on the market.

3.  There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move-Up

Moving to a more expensive home will be more affordable this spring than later this year or next year.  Prices are projected to appreciate by approximately 4% this year and 8% by the end of 2015. If you are moving to a higher priced home, it will wind up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait. You can also lock in your 30 year housing expense with an interest rate at about 4.5% right now. Freddie Mac projects rates to be 5.1% by this time next year and 5.7% by the fourth quarter of 2015.

Thanks to KCM's blog for providing great insight on the advantages of selling right now.  Contact us today to list your home or ask us questions about anything real estate related!

I have been a member for a coplue of years now. I don't receive the news letters or any emails. So I never know when the meetings or any events are. I have been to a few meetings (when someone tells me about them) and out to the track a few times. Please put me in your emails for future events and news letters. thank you Jim McAnany

We ll print it under these conditions and you submit it for publication, that s 1) Offer and 2) Acceptance, i.e. a contract.The whether you mail it in or not portion obviously lacks any consideration -- you don t get anything for trading away your rights -- so it isn t binding. But it would also be severable from the rest of the contract in the event that you did submit the drawing for publication. So that unenforceable clause would likely not invalidate the remainder of the contract.Remember an agreement that has bad terms and is poorly written is still a contract.-- MrJM

Angie, you ask some great questions. The old model many use is : 1-enlist, 2-train, 3-release, 4-support. Volunteers were required to go through a significant training prior to being released to serve. The model I want to champion is 1-enlist, 2-release, 3-train, 4-support. This puts the emphasis on getting people engaged as quickly as you can to take advantage of their interest and passion, and then train them as they go. I think excellence is important, but it can easily become an unecessary barrier to enaging people. I think you can do an initial screening to guage talent and ability at the enlist stage, then release them to serve in smaller projects and train them as they go. The more they do, the more they ll learn. And as they learn you release them to do more.Getting people to engage in an area of their passion is a BIG win. Maybe bigger than a predefined standard of excellence.

So what do you think of Kunstler s repetitive theme now? It s a wonderful thing to walk into any train station in any city in Europe, and know there will be a train ready (if not ready, soon) to go where ever it is you need to go. A train to Rome in the morning, walk through the city all day (Rome is a very pedestrian friendly city), and when you re tired, nap on the train home. I once had a friend who stayed in Salzburg, she could get on a sleeper train at night and in the morning be almost anywhere in Europe. The size of America makes this more challenging, but the population density of the East coast makes it very workable there.
