A MARKET IN TRANSITION
As inventory of good homes across Los Angeles remains low, multiple offers at all price points are becoming commonplace again. Forecasters predict that we have 'hit the bottom' of the market and buyers are returning to the marketplace with cautious optimism.
ADVICE FOR SELLERS
Now more than ever, your property must show well and be priced smartly. If your objective is to secure maximum return, you must invest in taking the time to thoroughly clear your home of unnecessary personal items. Consider hiring a professional stager. Make it easy for prospective buyers to see the best features of your house. You only have one chance to make a first impression and preparation pays off. Additionally, consult your tax adviser before you sell to make sure you maximize tax free gains you may earn from the sale of your primary residence or income properties.
As a Certified Buyer's Representative, I work together with you to make sure you give yourself every advantage in this competitive market. Despite the equalizing playing field, there are still several buyers fighting it out for the best properties in every price range. Get "pre-approved" by a well respected lender before you begin your home search. Clean up any past credit problems to assure you get the best interest rate possible. Call me and I can recommend a mortgage broker who will make the entire process easy for you!
