Why You Need to List Your House TOMORROW!
March 30th, 2010 9:50 PM

Ok… that is only if you were planning on selling this spring or summer…lol I do believe that tomorrow is THE best day of the year to list your property. I base that on some unique circumstances. As you know, the real estate market is somewhat turbulent and has been somewhat sustained by the current Federal 1st time homebuyer grant which expire on 4/30/10. 1st time homebuyers currently makes up more than 60 percent of the purchases and a high amount of those buyers who intend on buying in 2010 will try to buy by the end of April. As a result, May, June, July and August will have less 1st time buyers than normal as many of them will “buy early”. Less buyers on May 1 means less demand and ultimately lower short term prices. Traditionally April is a strong month in real estate and this April should be a whirlwind. While I cannot always predict the future, I will step out on a limb and say that your house will be worth LESS from May to August than in April. If you need to sell by the end of summer than here is your plan of action to maximize you sale

1. Contact your US or your favorite Realtor TOMMOROW

2. Have a professional appraisal and/or market analysis done by Friday

3. List your home with US or your favorite Realtor by Monday

4. Have US or your Realtor BLITZ the market for 30 days to get your highest April offer

5. Have US or your Realtor schedule a broker’s open house on Weds 4/7

6. Have US or your Realtor schedule an open house

7. Have US or your Realtor work their tale off for 30 days to get you the highest price you will ever get in the next several months

If you would like a market analysis for your Greater Manchester and Southern NH home then contact Jack Lavoie or Kim Overby at               603-644-1000         603-644-1000. If you don’t need to sell then you can wait. If you need to sell THIS year then you need to hire US TOMMOROW.

P.S. Dont even think about selling FSBO this month! This is an opportunity that can’t be missed and not the time to roll the dice.
