March Madness – who did you pick? Is your bracket busted already? What a year for upsets!
March Madness doesn’t only apply to basketball…it applies to real estate too! March is when the real estate season really kicks into high gear. This past winter as been a long, cold one and so far we have been teased with only a couple of warmer days as we head into Spring. People are excited about getting outside to exercise, spruce up their yards, and watch baseball! So, this is a great time to list your home or investment property and get it the exposure it deserves! But, make sure it is show worthy. If you have a Realtor, set up a meeting to get advice on how to make your property standout from the competition. If you don’t have a Realtor – get one – they can offer valuable tips to sell your home quicker than on your own!
For buyers, the spring housing market is like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert. More homes are being listed on the market injecting fresh air into a winter market that has become otherwise stagnant. You may have been casually looking for your next home online, but now more opportunity is being handed to you- seize the day! Get outside and take advantage of it by touring those properties!
Before you go out, it’s good to be prepared, so get a mortgage pre-approval. You will want to know how much you can afford before you find one that you love. Being prepared will allow you to act quickly and make your offer. If you have a Realtor, meet with them now. If you aren’t already on an automated search, get on one! You’ll want listings coming to you immediately so you can pick the best of the best and go check them out. Get yourself in a position to be ahead of the competition! So see, March Madness is everywhere and the competition is heating up, so “Alley-oop” to your Realtor for a slam dunk!
