The first week of fall 2017 is upon us and brings sparkling weather and special opportunity for home owners and sellers.
3,116 Orange County homes were sold last month during August 2016. Irvine continues to be the top city for home selling and had 297 homes with completed deals last month.
Home buyers at Orange County are still eager and are ready to go.
For home sellers who were priced too high and didn’t sell prior to end of summer, now is a good time for them to reconsider new pricing at real market value.
Now is a great time for sellers, because weather conditions make the home buyer task of moving somewhat easier and more attractive, which motivates buyers even more prior to the holiday season.
Home owners can also use this time during September and October to look more closely at their homes and make some positive improvements, such as cleaning gutters, removing or replacing things that change water flow around the exterior of the house, check weather stripping and seals around doors and windows, and have the roof inspected and repaired as needed after end of summer sunshine.
These basic home improvement tasks can end up saving you money on energy bills – and also help prepare your home for listing and sale to attract the best-qualified buyers.
If you are thinking about pursuing a real estate goal, now may be the time to act.
Thanks, and let’s get started!
