6 Real Estate Listing Tips for Selling Your Home

My real estate listing tips are a guide to steer you in the direction of a successful sale. Spring is traditionally “listing season”. You want to be sure that you have all of your ducks in a row before hitting the market. Do what you can to make your property stand out from the competition. Lots of factors influence the time it takes to sell, but you can take steps to set yourself up for success.

Real Estate Listing Tips

Real Estate Listing Tips

1. Partner with an experienced agent. I am starting off with this because it really does have a significant impact. With 20+ years of experience with Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County real estate, I act as a resource for my sellers. They can rely on me for honest recommendations, consistent communication, an effective pricing strategy and effective negotiating skills. Don’t just take my word for it. Check out testimonials from my clients. Additionally, I have an extensive network of buyers. Also, I have a variety of property services at my disposal as a Taylor-Made agent. Our team provides housekeeping, lawn care, minor repairs, painting and more.

2. Freshen up your curb appeal. This is one of my top real estate listing tips for my clients. If a buyer doesn’t like the outside, they won’t look any further. Try to see your home through the buyer’s eyes. Of course, big items need to be addressed but look for the little things. Staining your deck, raking leaves, planting flowers can make a difference in your listing photos.

Deep Creek Lake Real Estate News for Fall 2018

Deep Creek Lake real estate news shows good activity throughout the fall months, even with the small uptick in interest rates. As many of my clients realize, a slight rise in interest rates indicates that the market is healthy enough to sustain an increase. You can see that our average sold price is up considerably compared to last year, which correlates to the number of $1M+ homes that have sold in 2018. Another sign of a strong housing environment.

Deep Creek Lake Summer Real Estate Update

Deep Creek Lake Summer Real Estate Update

My Deep Creek Lake summer real estate update brings you news about a market that is in full swing!

Deep Creek Lake Summer Real Estate Update

When comparing to the average from the last 5 years, closed sales are up. Also, pending sales/contracts are up. Active listings are down, and the days on the market are down.  There are pockets of our market that are doing really well. We are even seeing  an occasional multiple offer situation.  Then there are other segments where properties are getting activity but moving at more of a pace we are used to seeing in G.C. with a 6-12 month average time on the market.  Nothing to complain about it.  Garrett County has been on the uptick for the past few years. I like the balance that we are seeing with buyers and sellers when it comes to negotiating for the good of both parties. Continue reading Deep Creek Lake Summer Real Estate Update
