5 Buyers Tips for Spring

1. Set your needs and wants before doing anything else. This will help you narrow your search and know exactly what you are looking for in a new home.

2. Set a budget. Look at your finances and determine what you can realistically afford. Similar to knowing what you are looking for in your new home, this will help you define your search to just those homes that fit within your budget.

3. Get your preapproval. Having your finances in order before you meet with sellers shows that you are serious about buying. Use this Loan Analysis Tool to find loans that you could qualify for.

5 Sellers Tips for Spring

1. Your first step is to find out Your Home's Value. This will allow you to price it correctly. Listing your home at the wrong price can put you at a disadvantage starting out so make sure it is a reasonable price that will help your home sell for top dollar and quickly.

2. Just like buyers, sellers should work with an Experienced Agent. Sellers that work with realtors, as opposed to those that list on their own, end up having more success with selling.

3. Since buyers depend on the internet when beginning their search, having a strong online presence is imperative to garner interest in your home. Make sure your photos, videos, and descriptions are top quality and have your home stand apart from the other ones on the market.

4. You might be moving but investing some more money in your current home can actually make you more money. Talk to your realtor about what improvements can give you the highest return on investment and make those changes before you sell.

5. Do not give up. There is a lot of competition out there so if your home sits for several weeks do not worry. There are a lot of buyers out there and your realtor can help you reevaluate your selling strategy.
