Holiday Home Sale - Haring Realty

At Haring Realty, our REALTORS® are looking forward to spending time with friends and family this holiday season. But many sellers are motivated to move fast, and Mansfield homes for sale shouldn't wait – we're on the case all through Thanksgiving and beyond.

Some sellers feel intimidated at the thought of staying on the market over the holidays. They wonder if their home will sell and if showings will put a dent in their holiday plans. But if you're intent on selling as soon as you can, don't shy away from sticking to your plan!

With the right real estate agent at your side, a holiday sale can be worth it!

Every seller has their own goals, and those goals usually include a fast, lucrative sale. Ideally, you don't want your home to be on the market longer than 60 days, and 30 is even better. Luckily, today's unique housing market situation makes it much easier than ever to sell over the holidays.

Tips for Improving Walls - Sell a Home - Haring Realty

"You have beautiful walls!" It's not something most homeowners ever hear, if for no other reason that most homeowners don't try to make their walls stand out as part of the room's decor. For those who do put forth a little bit of effort, the results can be stunning. With these seven tips that our REALTORS® recommend, you can create some genuinely wonderful walls in your home that are sure to get noticed.

  1. Patch the Holes
    Whether you have taken down a picture or plunged a hammer through the drywall, it's important to patch and repair holes in the wall properly. Small holes can be filled with spackle and painted over with some paint. For larger holes, use a patch kit, allow it to dry, and then repaint the wall.

Selling Your Mansfield Home
Have you ever wondered what rules govern what should be left behind when you turn your home over to new buyers? The truth is, there isn't much by way of law to dictate what goes with the house, but common practice can help guide your decisions. There are certain things buyers tend to expect will come with the Mansfield homes they view. When it comes down to it, though, your contract spells out everything for both buyer and seller, so you can specify anything you want to take in your list of exclusions.

Here are some guidelines for what to leave, what you can take, and when to negotiate.

Home Selling Features
Understanding what buyers want is key to selling a house because offering the right features makes it easier to find the right buyer. While it may seem counter-intuitive to consider remodeling projects when you're getting ready to move out, making the right upgrades can actually make a big difference in selling your home faster.

The cost will often be more than worth it in the long run as long as you keep the focus on adding the features that buyers want most. Our REALTORS® always keep an eye on the latest real estate trends, and we've narrowed the list to five features that will help sell your home faster.

Real Estate Market Overview

Peter Haring, Broker

Millennials are those people born between 1992 and 2004. This millennial generation is expected to have a huge impact on both the local and national housing market in 2015. There are three reasons for this: a greatly improved economy driving household formations, low interest rates, and a stable housing market.

Last year, according to a survey by the National Association of Realtors, first time home buyers only accounted for 33% of all home sales. That is near a 30 year low. In a typical year, first time homebuyers generally account for around 40% of sales. This rate will likely go much higher during the next year or so. One survey of buyers, shows that number going as high as 46%. That's a big rebound. As the economy has improved, these buyers, many of whom have been living in parents basements are expected to form their own households and move into the market in a big way in 2015. Household formations are already the highest they've been since 2005.

Further, some economists are expecting interest rates to grow this year by as much as 1%, from around 4% up to nearly 5%. That would be nearly a 20% increase. The average increase is expected to be around 6/10 of a percent. Either way, that change is creating a lot of motivation for home buyers to purchase this spring rather than wait until laterin 2015. Many realize now is the time to take advantage of these low rates and lock in a fixed payment. Let's compare that to the alternative of renting. Ruth Mantel, economics reporter at Market Watch says, "Landlords have ramped up rents by the fastest pace in six years with national vacancy rates the lowest in two decades." As households are formed, millennials are increasingly seeing the wisdom of having a fixed mortgage payment rather than being subject to increasing rents.

This year will finally bring us closer to a stable rate of home price appreciation ranging from 3.7%-4% according to a recent Home Price AppreciationSurvey. For 2016, the same survey shows expected appreciation rates to be in a range from 3-3.5%. Those growth rates are reflective of historical norms in this country. These rates can give buyers confidence. According to the 2014 National Association of Realtors® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 79 percent of recent buyers said their home is a good investment, and 40 percent believe it's better than stocks.

All together, it looks like we should have a very active real estate market in 2015.
