SHOULD I SELL MY HOME NOW??

If you’re thinking of selling your home, there must be a reason.  Perhaps you’re family has outgrown your current home and you need more space, perhaps some children have “left the nest” and you wish to downsize, or maybe you just want to live closer to family that lives elsewhere.   Selling a home shouldn’t be ONLY about the money, sometimes it is about moving ahead in your life, doing the things you want to do or need to do.

Especially if you’re looking to downsize or upsize, NOW may be the right time to sell your home and purchase another.

1. Interest rates remain low giving buyers more incentive to buy as well as more purchasing power.  An increase in interest rates of a mere 1/4% reduces a buyers purchasing power significantly.  The low interest rates also work in your favor in the purchase of your next home.

2. Inventories are reasonable at present.  However there are still a large volumes of foreclosed homes being held by the banks.  In the near future these houses will come to the market increasing the supply of homes available to buyers, creating more competition for your home.

3. While you may be taking a loss on the value of your home from its peak value, you’re gaining by purchasing your next home while prices and interest rates are low.  You will see a greater gain when the real estate market turns around with your next home.  Additionally, lower home prices may enable you to obtain more features in your next home. It also may allow you to move into a more desirable area.

4. The current favorable market conditions won’t last long. Real Estate has proven over time to be a great financial investment.

In short,  the answer to “IS IT A GOOD TIME TO SELL?”, depends on your reason for selling and your particular set of circumstances.  There are opportunities in every season and under all market conditions.  One must look at the big picture to truly determine if selling now is right for you.

cool house

As the temperature rises, so does the  cost of cooling your home, especially if you use an air conditioner. Running the a/c may cool you temporarily, but it's bad for your budget and the environment. A/Cs burn fossil fuel which used in excess as it is causes pollution and will only make for longer, hotter summers.   Instead, try some of these home cooling tips.  You'll save money and help to save the environment as well. Fundamentally, the idea is to minimize sources of heat and remove built-up heat from inside.   Click here for tips.

HOME VALUESSELLING A HOME CAPITAL GAINS TAXSELLING YOUR HOME ON YOUR OWN - OR USING A REAL ESTATE SALESPERSON
Home value sometimes referred to as "Value in Use", is best described as the probable price at which a home trades in a free, competitive, and open market and is synonymous with the market value.The Income Tax Act does not specifically set out whether or not a gain or loss is capital in nature. The taxpayer is responsible for reporting the gain as income or capital gain. This report may then be challenged by the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency with the onus of proof on the taxpayer.If you have decided that now is the time to sell your home, you might be thinking: should I hire a Real Estate Sales Representative or do it alone. Have you ever considered repairing your own car? Anyone can buy the tools and parts. However, most of us just do not have the knowledge, training, experience or the expertise and commitment of time to do the job properly. Besides, there are plenty of experienced professionals to do the work for us.

SELLING YOUR HOME - WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME?HOW REAL ESTATE MARKET CONDITIONS AFFECT YOUR OFFER PRICESTAGING… FOR A FASTER SALE AND HIGHER PRICE
When should I sell my home? Your answer to this question might be right now! If you have taken a job in another city or made an offer on a new home, or had an addition to your family, selling your home fast might be the most important goal you have. Most people, however, have some flexibility when they sell their home. Let us take a closer look at the most important factors that can go into this decision.A hot market is a "seller’s market". During a seller’s market, properties can sell within a few days of being listed and there are often multiple offers. Sometimes homes even sell above the asking price. Though most buyers want to get a "deal" on a home, reducing your offer by even a few thousand dollars could mean that someone else will get the home you desire.There are many television shows today that focus on home staging. If you have not watched any, do yourself a favor and tune in. They all say the same thing: do not even consider putting your house on the market until you have taken a close look at its condition. Experienced sales people know that you only have one shot at impressing potential buyers, so take some time to prepare your home for showings. You will be rewarded with a faster sale and a higher offer.

HOW DO REAL ESTATE PROS PRICE A LISTING?DOWNSIZING YOUR RESIDENCELOCATION, LOCATION.... MARKETING!
A very accurate saying is that "Any home will sell once you get the price right." Of course, this is usually said from the perspective of dropping a price until it's too attractive to pass up. Actually, the accurate pricing of your home prior to listing is as much an art as it is a science.A great many moves in our lives are to larger residences to accommodate growing families. Or, perhaps our financial development allows us to move up to a larger home with more features and amenities. There is no stress involved in trying to reduce our life’s stuff to fit into a smaller place. If anything, we just need to shop for some more furniture for the new larger place.You may have lived in your home for many years. The location factors that you considered when making your purchase decision may not apply to today’s buyers. The task is to identify the current positive aspects of your home’s location and market them aggressively. When it comes to positive locations, people’s different attitudes and preferences will determine if a location is a “good” one.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO MARKET A HOME FOR SALE?OFFERS AND NEGOTIATIONS
Marketing a home for sale is quite different from most other types of marketing and advertising. Unlike marketing many products, homes are each unique. Marketing decisions will be based on thorough examination of the home’s features and comparison to the competition in the marketplace. Decisions must also be made concerning improvements that might enhance the home and sell it faster and for a higher price. Whether buying or selling a home, one activity will be part of the process in all cases and for all involved. Let’s look at the offer to purchase contract and negotiation process from both sides
