The nation’s dramatic housing market correction began in 2007 and lasted for about 5 years. The greater Seattle housing market began experiencing pricing corrections in 2008, which lasted until around 2012. Home prices started to rebound around 2012 and prices shot up in many neighborhoods as the region experienced increased economic prosperity and an influx of new residents.
The latest boom cycle lasted until mid-2018. As home prices have moderated across the greater Seattle housing markets, buyers have more choices now than they’ve had in years, and more time and breathing room to choose the perfect home.
As a seller, it’s more important now than it’s been in years to put your best foot forward. We will market the best features of your home, but you should also have an idea of its shortcomings, especially as it compares to your competition. It is vital to price appropriately to attract a solid buyer.
Once your home has been repaired & updated (if necessary), properly staged and the interior looks good, we’ll work together on the terms and pricing. Pricing your home for a good sale is both art & “science;” how do we attract the best buyers with an appealing price, but balance that against you leaving money on the table? As the economy and housing market continue to change, we’ll certainly have a lot to discuss when we meet to talk about strategies to sell your home.
