If you’re thinking of selling your house, know that buyers are on the move, even today. Homes sold faster this past month compared to the average September from 2017 to 2019. That’s because there are still more buyers looking to buy than homes available for sale. Don't miss out on the action. If you’re ready to sell, let’s chat.


Foreclosure headlines may be raising eyebrows, but here’s the bigger picture to put your mind at ease. While foreclosure filings have increased slightly, there’s no reason to worry. That slight uptick was expected as the foreclosure moratorium ended. Most importantly, we’re nowhere near the volume we saw during the housing crash, so there isn’t a flood of foreclosures coming.

DM me so you have an expert to find that pricing sweet spot for your house.

Don’t delay your plan to sell your house out of fear no one is buying - the facts tell a different story. According to the latest Showing Time Showing Index, buyer activity is still higher than it would be in more normal years, even with today’s mortgage rates. Let's chat about how we can get your home listed and in front of these enthusiastic buyers.


How Your Home Equity Can Help with Affordability

If you want to move, your equity can make a big difference right now. Let’s connect to see how much you have.


The mortgage pre-approval process is one of the most important steps you can take as a homebuyer. It helps you understand what you can borrow, and it shows sellers you’re serious about buying their home. If you want to make sure you really know your numbers and stand out from other buyers, connect with a lender to begin the process.


Americans are sitting on tremendous equity these days. Nearly two-thirds of homeowners have at least 50% equity – and that much equity can be a real game changer. If you sell your current house, you can use your equity towards your down payment. You may even have enough to buy your next home in cash. Curious about how much equity you have? Let’s chat.


Early signs show the number of people putting their houses up for sale may be trending up, which is a bit unusual for this time of year. While inventory is still low, you may want to put your house on the market before it has more competition from other sellers. DM me today and let’s work together to get your house sold before your neighbors list theirs.


Affordability is a top priority for many buyers, especially with today’s mortgage rates and rising home prices. If you work remotely either full or part-time, broadening your search to include other nearby areas could be the key to finding your dream home within your budget. DM me today to explore all your options.
