How is Real Estate Changing in 2019

How is real estate Changing in 2019 | Market Source Real Estate

 

We sat down with our own Monique Higginson to discuss the real estate forecast for 2019. Here are her thoughts on the current state of real estate in Utah for 2019.

 

Q. What is the state of the market currently?

A. The market is very good as it is spring but it is not as hot as it has been the past few years. Inventories are still low in general.

Q. Is it a ‘buyers’ or ‘sellers’ market right now?

A. Buyers are not as urgent this year. I am finding that they are not willing to compete as much as in years past. It is still a seller’s market but the conditions are much more favorable for buyers this year.

Q. Is the cost of homes still raising at a rapid rate?

A. We expect less appreciation in 2019 than we have been having the last 5-6 years.

Tips for Getting Your Home Ready to Sell

Now that you have made the decision to sell, getting your home in the best condition so it will show well can take a little time.

 

Some simple tips for getting your home ready to sell are just minor details. Like, on showing days, be sure there are no dishes in the sink, all the beds are made and the house is freshly vacuumed. Wipe off counters, hang fresh towels and putting fresh flowers out is a nice touch!

 

Here are a few other tips to consider:

Give your house a deep cleaning

You want any potential buyers to get the best first impression possible. Deep cleaning includes, laundering drapes, cleaning base boards and blinds. Remember not to neglect the bathrooms. Give your backsplashes a good wipe down in both the kitchen and bathrooms.

De-clutter

Having a cluttered space makes it difficult for some buyers to see the homes potential, it can also make a space appear smaller than it is. Getting rid of unnecessary Knick knacks and decorations will allow people to see their belongings in the space, and make the space more asthetically pleasing overall.

Paint Walls

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a room. Stick to neutral colors like light grays, whites and beige etc. Having freshly painted walls also allows potential buyers to check an item off their list of things to do when they move in.

Stage Your Home

Spruce up the inside by adding textures, symmetry and nice linens. This can be as easy as adding throw pillows. Lighting candles also adds warmth and homeyness.

Don’t forget about curb appeal, make sure your yard and walk ways are free from debris and obstacles.

Hire a handyman

Little things like broken drawers, even burned out light bulbs etc, may seem like just annoyances but having multiple items that need fixing can devalue your home to some people. Do the things you can do yourself, then hire a handyman for the others.
