Work With Your Realtor When Selling Your Home

If you plan on selling your home, it’s very important that you work hand-in-hand with your Realtor. After all, you both have the same goals.

If you are a seller, sometimes, things don’t work out.

Sometimes we miss the mark on pricing. Sometimes we don’t fulfill your expectations. After all, real estate is a very human business.

I’m not trying to make excuses for our service. I wish I could tell you that we sell all of the homes that we list. Don’t get me wrong—we sell most of them.


“    

 You and your Realtor are a team.


The bottom line is that you and your Realtor are a team.

The best thing you can do as a seller is work hand-in-hand with your Realtor. Ask them questions and point out things about the house that they might not know. You will always know your house better than your Realtor, and you need to be on the same page with them.

You are on the same team because you have the same goals.

If you have any questions or you’re interested in selling your home, just give us a call or send us an email. My team and I would be happy to help you!

Today I want to tell you why now is actually an exciting time to buy in our current market.

We’ve been scraping along the bottom of the market for a little over a year now, but there are expectations of an improved market on the horizon.

Right now is the time to get in the market.


“    

 There are expectations
of an improved market on the horizon.


But if you’re a seller, don’t get overzealous. The market isn’t going to skyrocket right away, so expect stability instead of a night and day difference.

The market increase in 2018 is going to be modest, but it is coming.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Why Can’t Our Economy Catch Up With the Rest of the Country?

Our state’s economy hasn’t been recovering like the rest of the country due to three main reasons: government, infrastructure, and business flight.

Why isn’t Connecticut’s economy recovering like the rest of the country? 

The bottom line boils down to three factors: government, infrastructure, and business flight.

As far as government goes, we don’t have the necessary leadership installed. Granted, I’m not a big political guy and I’m not trying to take sides, but the proof is in the pudding—as taxes go up, services go down.

 With a weak infrastructure,
you won’t be able to attract businesses.

Our infrastructure is weak, and with a weak infrastructure, you won’t be able to attract businesses. On the opposite end of the spectrum, businesses keep leaving. 

Lastly, we don’t have the businesses to attract young buyers to come in and buy up more inventory. Our inventory is aging, meaning the homes themselves are physically getting older, and we don’t have a lot of new construction for people to be attracted to.

If you have any questions about our market or you’re thinking about buying or selling a home, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I’d be happy to help you.

How Is the Real Estate Market Heading into the Fall

Homes are still hard to sell above the $400,000 price range in our market, but inventory is still moving below that.

What’s the latest news on our fall market?

It’s the same—it’s equally as challenging for sellers above the $400,000 price range in northern Fairfield County.

“    

If you took a 12-month running average, prices and inventory are still relatively flat.




Below that, however, inventory is still moving. There are dips and rises month over month. Prices go up, prices go down. Inventory movement goes up, inventory movement goes down. Overall though, if you looked at a 12-month running average, it’s still relatively flat.

That’s all from our fall market. Soon, we’ll discuss what you can expect from our market in 2018. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about our current market or you’re thinking about buying or selling a home, give me a call or shoot me an email. I’d love to help you.

Be Wary of A.I. in Real Estate

Artificial intelligence has become something of a problem in the real estate industry.
Here’s what I mean.

Today I’d like to talk about how artificial intelligence has become a hindrance in real estate. I’m not talking about robots picking you up in a car and taking you to see homes, although that might not be too far off in the future.


I’m talking about online interaction with so-called “real people." Most of the time, you’re actually engaging with A.I. instead of a real human being. This could lead to problems, as this type of thing is becoming more and more prevalent.

A chatbot won’t have reliable information.




Be careful of who and what you are talking to so you can make sure you’re getting accurate information. A chatbot isn’t going to be able to give you that.


If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you.
