First Things First
Are you (or someone you care about) looking to sell, buy, build, or invest in real estate this year? Great! We love to be your resource for everything "real estate." To this end, I want to answer a question I frequently get from our clients:
"We’re planning our move, so, what do we do first?"
Obviously, and it might get redundant, but I’ll say it again, "give me a call; let’s start the conversation." And why is this so important, especially as we see the market changing monthly and weekly and sometimes even daily? Because the market is changing, financing is changing, inventory is changing, and opportunities for buyers and sellers are changing. We are on the front lines of all that is changing in our market, and our team includes financing specialists, title specialists, and data analysts that can help you to navigate any and all market dynamics that affect your unique situation and goals.
"So, really, what comes first?" Well, as soon as we discover your overall goals, the first conversation is a financial conversation. "Oh, no! Those conversations are no fun!!" I know. However, clarity in the financial realm of your goals will set you free. How? Clarity is power in the real estate realm.
Now, you don’t need to disclose your personal financial information to ME, but I will connect you with the best professional for your financial needs. You have cash? Well, you may still want to discuss options with a professional - clarity, even if it’s just confirming your plan, is power. Let’s get started! If you, or a loved one of yours is even beginning to consider a move over the next year, call/text/email now, so we can get clear on making the wisest decisions and preparing well. Happy to help!
Wintertime in Real Estate
The weather has not done much to hinder our real estate market this year (best November ever!), and we are still selling lots of homes, resulting in smiling sellers who have netted great returns on their properties. From starter homes on up to our luxury listings, we are seeing buyers come out to play in this market-It is a great time to buy!
Buyers are excited to buy, and yet when I speak with potential sellers they are consistently inclined to “wait ‘til Spring.” What? You mean, multiple offers, serious buyers and amazing interest rates are not motivating enough to consider taking advantage of the opportunity market we are still experiencing? Well, I thought I would give you the short list of reasons you may want to consider putting the pedal to the metal in your moving plans 🙂
Welcome to our blog. We hope to be able to provide you with some valuable resources about selling and buying a home in the Twin Cities. We may also include a favorite recipe of ours from time to time, so check back often.
