It is a Fact

by Sandi Pressley

Good Monday Morning!

It is a fact! Over 90% of all home searches conducted nationally begin online. Searching for homes online is by far the easiest and most efficient way to look for homes. Long gone are the days where interested home buyers ride around town with their Realtor viewing home after home while thumbing through the pages of an MLS book. Online home shopping is convenient and it allows the prospective home buyer the ability to keep up with current listings and prices.

There are many resources that will allow you to search for homes online and some are much easier to navigate and have more options than others. We have found that here in the Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and Surrounding market areas the best home search site is www.albuquerquehomesolutions.com. This state of the art site will allow you to search properties, on line, based on your search criteria and then save your search so that you are not re-entering it every time you conduct a search. This site also offers you the ability to set up a property alert, which will automatically e-mail you information on new properties meeting your search criteria as they hit the market.

Now is an excellent time to be shopping for a home. With home prices remaining low and mortgage interest rates at historic low levels, there is great opportunity and www.albuquerquehomesolutions.com is a great tool to use during your home search.

Have An Awesome Week!

Why Did My Home Not Sale?

by Sandi Pressley

Good Monday Morning!

Why did my home fail to sell?  This is a call that I get frequently from homeowners who have had a home on the market and it did not sell. The answer to this question is often not simple, but typically a little bit of investigation will reveal the most likely cause.  Nine times out of ten the problem is that the price was too high.  In this market, if you miss the market with pricing your home is going to just sit and not get offers.  Many times the home owners will see many showings and just no serious interest.  This simply means that would be homebuyers are finding other homes equal to or better than this home at a more attractive price. It can be hard to hit pricing perfectly, but once a home is on the market, if we look at what takes place with showings and interest it will soon tell us the story as to whether we have hit pricing right or not.

The largest mistake home sellers make is to not watch the market and to not drop the price quickly enough needed.  Failure to do this may cost homesellers large amounts of money and the opportuity to sell.

Also, if you are considering putting your home on the market and don't want to join the ranks of the unsold homes be cautious when you interview Real Estate agents.  Be cautious as to not pick your agent based solely on the price they give you for your home.  Many agents will inflate this price to get your business.  Good agents will price your home correclty to start with and then watch the market for any changes and advise you quickly if an adjustment is needed.

The keys to selling a home for top dollar value in any market are to:
  1. Price correctly with the market and adjust quickly if offers don't materialize.
  2. Stage your home.  Get rid of clutter, paint, do yard work, needed repairs and make your home as appealing as possible
  3. Make your home accessible.  If your home is easy to show you will get maximum exposure
  4. Make sure that your agent is getting feedback from showings and sharing this feedback with you.  Listen to the market and adjust accordingly.

Have An Awesome Week!
