Is it time to list your house for sale?

The question of whether one should list their home for sale now or mid-march always arise around this time of year. Many of us desire to have a newer home for more space or to downsize. However, we have to get over the hump of if we should list our house for sale now or later. Let me start by saying this, Real Estate sales increased by 17% in January of 2016 since last year of 2015 in our market here in Huntsville, AL. With that being said, it is never too early or too late to put your house on the market. Now, lets talk about a few things to consider while you ponder on that thought.

  • How is the market in your area? Are homes selling? Have sells increased? Those are important questions to ask and consider while thinking about listing your house for sale. As I stated previously, our sales in Huntsville increased by 17% in January and nationally sales are 11% higher than last year so sales are definitely increasing… Sounds good to me!
  • Interest rates are low! Unfortunately, we cannot predict if or when interest rates will increase. However, since rates are low, buyers can afford to buy and that’s what you want, right? Also, if rates are low and buyers are buying and you sell your home, guess what? You can then apply and qualify for a loan and receive those same low rates to purchase your new home!
  • Location, Location, Location! Is your home located in a high demand area? Think about that. Are buyers buying and wanting to be in your area? See what the market is like where your home is located. I offer free market analysis for homeowners who are considering putting their house up for sale. This analysis will give me and the homeowner an idea of the current condition of the market and it will allow us to see what other homes are selling for.
  • And last but not least, rent is going up!!! Studies show that rental prices have increased by 15% nationwide in the past five years. Who wants to rent when they can own a home for the same if not less which in most cases, it is definitely less!

Whether you are thinking about listing your home now or later, please consider these few tips and understand the importance of each tip and how it can help you. Honestly, there is no better time to list your home for sale than now.

Hello and welcome to my site! I was born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama. I have spent nearly a decade in the fitness industry as a group fitness instructor, fitness coach, membership director and marketing coordinator. I have managed to change lives of hundreds of people all throughout North Alabama by inspiring, motivating and helping them realize that their fitness goals can become a reality. The fulfillment I received from working directly with customers is what led me to the Real Estate field. After working with real estate investors and being in the fitness industry, I decided to pursue a career as a real estate agent full-time so that I could apply those same skills when helping clients with one of the most important purchases they'll ever make. My goal when it comes to helping others is to be extremely passionate and dedicated. As a former Membership Director, I understand the importance of honesty; integrity and excellence that goes into completing contracts and insuring buyers and sellers receive the best, exciting and memorable experience ever by being a leader and relieving my clients of any duties. With extensive experience in management, team leading and marketing, I am able to utilize those skills when working with buyers and sellers. I have served as a member on the marketing team at the University Fitness Center (University of Alabama in Huntsville) and have attended countless Business Expos and Health Fairs on behalf of the fitness center. I am also a member of the Huntsville Area Association of Realtors (HAAR) and currently serve on the Education Committee, I am also a member of the National Association of Realtors and the North Alabama Multiple Listing Service (NALMLS). Clients choose to work with me because of my personality, knowledge in the market, professionalism and exclusive marketing skills. In my first year of Real Estate, I was named Rookie of Year and sold over $2 million dollars in Real Estate. When I am not working with clients, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, teaching group fitness classes, baking and blogging! Check out my website to find homes for sale in Huntsville, Al, Madison, Al, Meridianville, etc. I can also provide you with a list of foreclosures and short-sales.
