It seems as Real Estate is the topic at every meeting or event these days. City Lifestyle reached out to a few of Gilbert's most successful Realtors for some advice to help navigate this market.
KW - Keller Williams Realty East Valley
In 43 years being in the real estate business I have personally experienced 5 significant "shifts" in the market. We are in one now. Right now, is still a great time to buy as rates are still relatively low, in the 5's. Compare that to 1981 when I was selling homes with interest rates at 17.5%. Also, it is still a great time to sell because inventory is at all-time lows which translates to sellers being able to still command top dollar for their homes. But be careful, have no illusions about this market. It is changing and where it's going is a mystery.
West Usa Realty
You always want to buy & sell in a seller’s market. We all want to purchase today and have it worth more tomorrow. Home values are still on the rise. There is great demand for housing with all the Tech corporations moving here. I love the town of Gilbert that has a small community feel with our growing population. It is a fantastic place to raise your children with all the parks, community events and great people.
KW - The Home Selling Team
In a strong seller’s market, it’s common to see active listings that have “skipped corners” so to speak – cluttered contents, poor yard maintenance, repair work needed, cell phone photos, lack of cleanliness, etc. And guess what? The home will often sell. However, the sellers are undoubtedly leaving money on the table!
To maximize your profit, it is imperative to take care of the little things. Thoroughly cleaning, decluttering and depersonalizing the home go a long way. But taking care of key updates and staging the home are HUGE to maximizing your profits, even in a seller’s market! We believe so strongly in these important steps, we are willing to front the money as part of our BeautiFi program!
