iBuyer Cons: Benefits to a Real Estate Professional

What is an iBuyer? In a nutshell, it’s a new trendy way to buy or sell homes in the real estate world. If you’re a home seller who wants to sell your home fast with minimal fuss, selling to an iBuyer might be an option for some. However, I am here to tell you it’s not all rainbows and butterflies going that route. 

Traditionally when you sell a home, there are necessary steps to take including making repairs, staging your home, holding open houses, soliciting offers, negotiating with home buyers, and signing the purchase agreement. You may also have to overcome any roadblocks that may come into play along the way. AReal Estate Agent will take care of all of this and will navigate the entire process for you. 

When you go through the process of selling Real Estate through an iBuyer, it can be more of a streamlined transaction- plug in the address and fill out a questionnaire about your home. Within 24 hours, you will receive a cash offer. The ‘i&rs; ...

Buyer & Seller Perks in Today's Housing Market

Currently, the housing market is full of outstanding opportunities for both buyers and sellers. Whether you’re thinking of buying your first home, moving up to a bigger one, or selling so you can downsize, there are perks today that are empowering big moves for people. Here are the top two to keep on your radar this season.

The most compelling buyer incentive right now is low mortgage interest rates. For a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage you are looking at just over 3%. While that’s slightly higher than the record-lows from 2020, it’s still way lower than the typical rates in the recent years. 
Having said that, this is a huge advantage for buyers in helping homeownership. The latest Homeowner Equity Report from CoreLogic shows how homeowners saw a major increase in their net worth last year, all thanks to owning a home.

To Renovate or Not to Renovate before Selling Your Home

When thinking about selling, homeowners often feel they need to do some updates or remodeling to make their home more appealing to buyers. However, with the market being where it is and buyers competing for the limited amount of homes available, renovations may not be as important as they would in a traditional market. Here are two major things to keep in mind if you’re thinking about selling your home this season.
Inventory is Low: There aren’t enough homes for sale right now
In a traditional market, there is usually a 6-month supply of homes for sale, but today’s housing inventory sits far below that. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), there’s only a 1.9 month supply of homes available today. As a result, buyer competition is high and homes are only on the market for about 21 days, during which time most receive multiple offers.
In this type of market, it may be wise to let future homeowners remodel the bathroom or kitchen to make desi; ...
