Isn’t it wonderful that we have a time of year that calls us to be thankful on purpose? We just automatically think of gratitude around this time of year. And what better place for our hearts to be than in a state of gratitude? With all of the strife in the world today and all of the items on our to-do lists that beckon us each day, we are gifted with a reminder to be grateful.
So what are you grateful for and who are you grateful to today? We have a unique opportunity each and every day (not just during the “Thanksgiving Season”) to set our hearts right and begin our days with gratitude. And doesn’t that just frame your whole day in a different way?
Well, as you may know, our team is very grateful for each of you; not only at this time of year, but all year ‘round. We love working with you to realize your homeownership dreams. We find great joy in partnering with you to achieve the goals you have in mind. We love to be your resource for information, your guide through the process, and your sounding board as you make big decisions and want to recap the details and organize your thoughts.
As you consider gratitude today and into the future, you can remember that we are here for you, and we are grateful to know you and to be connected with you. Don’t ever hesitate to reach out when you need something we can help with, or just to say "hi."
With gratitude, Angela, Eli, Lori, and Eri
This crazy market continues to keep us on our toes! As we watch the trends in order to bring the very BEST marketing strategies to our clients, we notice that the Angels Sadat Group is consistently helping our clients to achieve the very BEST results in the sale of their homes. Every home we have listed this year has sold within the first week and all have sold well over list price. So, how can we do the same for YOU and make YOU more money on your sale? Here are just a few things that set us apart:
It’s true. The market remains a "challenge" for buyers at all price points, and yet the market ebbs and flows each month, each week, each day. So, can serious buyers still secure superior properties as they compete in the multiple offer madness? Absolutely! I always like to discuss and analyze the unique buying power of each of my clients, and every situation is different. Overall, we want to write the cleanest offer possible. We write to win! So what does "clean" look like in today’s market? Here are just a few things we discuss:
Many of our clients call us with questions that relate to the current market conditions and what they should be doing to prepare for a successful sale. With the lack of inventory, it seems you can literally "throw" your house on the market and expect an offer. However, is it merely and offer that you're looking for? Or is it the very BEST offer that you're looking for?
I maintain that although it is true that our inventory problem has caused the rapidity of receiving offers to increase substantially; it is still in our clients' best interest to prepare well. And we are here to help!
We are not merely looking for an offer. We would like to procure the very BEST offer with the very best terms and the absolute highest net dollar to our clients. To this end, we are still committed to doing the work that is necessary to achieve the very BEST results. We are committed to helping you prepare your home, to marketing your property with the same results-oriented and aggressive marketing we have always excelled in, and to strategically negotiate the very best terms and price for you... even in a hot market.
Again, we're not looking for AN offer; we're looking to get you the BEST offer. Is this the type of commitment you're looking for when you move? We are here to help. Give us a call or reach out by text or email. We will give you peace of mind in your listing process because you can be certain that you're getting the best of the best at every step!
There is a lot of confusion in our marketplace right now and our clients are wondering: Why is the inventory so low?? This question begs another question: When will this end?
Well, these are great questions and there are several answers. Let’s talk about a few.
As uncomfortable as this market can be, we are encouraging our clients more than ever, that if moving is on your horizon, sooner is better. I’m not saying we are becoming California, but we might be becoming California. As investor penetration increases in major cities, they find themselves in a predicament where homeownership just can’t make sense financially for much of the population.
Want to discuss how this affects you? Let’s chat. Call, text or email anytime to set up a quick consult. Facing reality helps us to navigate our options and set a plan for success!
We love helping our clients with their moving complexities. Sometimes the prospect of a move, with all of the “moving” parts, can seem overwhelming; and yet, we come along side to help to make the process as smooth as it can possibly be. We have been very successful in helping so many to achieve their goals, that I thought you might want to hear about it! Here are just a few of the complex situations we have been able to help with.
Well, you have probably heard by now... "Unprecedented lack of available inventory" is the song we are singing in the real estate realm. Most of our cities are under 2 months of inventory and buyers are looking for homes! Many are looking for changes in floor plan and more space, to accommodate working from home and schooling from home. We also have lots of clients looking to move from their traditional 2 story home into a one level home. And yet, many are hesitant to list their homes, because they will then have to find a home to BUY... And that's the challenge.
Never fear! We know that more inventory will come each month, and there will be homes to buy... for serious buyers. This is not a time to dabble in real estate; this is a market for serious buyers. When your motivation is there, the home shows up. I have experienced this hundreds of times and it never fails. Whether existing or new construction, somehow our buyers always find a great home when they're truly ready.
Are you ready? Do you want to discuss your options to find out if you're ready? Please reach out! I'm happy to chat about your unique situation and help you to make a plan for your move. Whether you're ready to move tomorrow or in 2 years (or more!), we are always here and happy to help!
We often hear, in the real estate realm, that Spring Market is when everyone comes out to buy and sell homes. True, spring has historically been the busiest time for real estate, and our stats for spring generally show marked increases in listings, sales, pricing and overall movement (no pun intended;). However, we have been noticing that over the last couple of years, home sales just haven’t slowed… at all. Certainly, there have been temporary “bumps” in the real estate road, such as the start of COVID-19, the election, and other short term hiccups; yet, we are finding that home sales just keep climbing in number (and price!).
As of December 2020, we have the highest number of pending sales since May of 2005, and we may crush 2005 numbers yet this year (it is only January!). So, it seems spring is here… all the time. There is no bad time to list your home or to buy a home, in the current environment. So, the good news is that your timing is really up to you.
Now, we must keep in mind that as demand rises, prices rise, as well. Therefore, if you are a buyer who is ready to buy, I certainly recommend jumping into the market as soon as you can. Due to the lack of inventory, many of our buyer clients are going the new construction route, if prices are in line with their goals. I am a new construction expert, so I would love to discuss this option with you!
As for listings, the lack of inventory has been a great advantage for sellers; especially for those who are not in price points that are competing with new construction. Even with new construction booming, however, our luxury clients are seeing amazing returns on their properties, as many luxury buyers prefer established neighborhoods to new neighborhoods.
There is something for everyone this spring, and it all starts whenever you want it to. Are you wondering what YOUR best path might look like, as you consider a move? Please reach out! Let’s chat about the details and create YOUR plan for success!
From Our Team To You… A December to Remember?
December is a month to look back on 2020
To consider, with gratitude, that God has provided for us plenty
To remember our clients, our family, our friends
To be thankful these relationships seem to have no ends
December is a month to look back on our year
We, as a team, have many reasons to cheer
We have enjoyed helping sellers, we’ve had fun helping buyers
We hope that YOU all have enjoyed these fun flyers!
December is a month to look forward with hope
To plan something amazing and not merely “cope”
To cherish all our blessings and those whom we hold dear
To wish you “A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!”
Well, we are almost to the end of a year none of us will forget! As we consider how 2020 will look in the rearview, I am sure we all have various emotions, memories, “things we’d like to forget,” and “did that really happen?” moments we will pull from in the future. Many of us will remember 2020 as a rollercoaster ride that seemed it would never end and we pray that 2021 is a calmer year. And, many of us will also remember how this year taught us to be grateful for the ups and downs we encounter in this life.
So… What are you grateful for right now? As we approach the Thanksgiving Season, it is always a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the year, and consider: how we have grown, what we have learned, how we have been challenged, ways we have overcome adversity, and how a year like 2020 can serve to strengthen us rather than squash us. What are you grateful for, as we wrap up the year 2020?
We at the Angela Sadat Group are grateful for YOU. I am grateful for each one of you. So many of you have supported us and cheered us on this year. So many of you have sent your friends and family to us so that we could help them to achieve their goals of making a successful move. So many of you have reached out with questions as well as encouragement during a tumultuous time. And we are so grateful for YOU.
As we look forward to this season of gratitude, may we come together, in whatever ways we can, to serve one another, encourage one another, and to be grateful for the abundant blessings we find in living through the ups and the downs of life. Many blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving!
