The spring housing market is traditionally a peak real estate season across Bemidji and northern Minnesota. Both buyers and sellers can take advantage of nice weather, increasing inventory and buyers ready to purchase their new home. Here are a few tips to help get prepared for this busy home buying and selling season!
Seller are often in a rush to get their home ready to put on the market. Do not rush to list. You only get one first impression, so take the time to paint, replace carpet, mulch, or de-clutter the basement. Curb appeal is an obvious must-have to create more interest and get potential buyers through the door. Along with your CENTURY 21 Dickinson realtor, the internet is full of ideas, tips, and before-and-after pictures you can find with a quick search.
Pricing in the spring is also very important. If you overprice, the home may sit and you can potentially miss out on your best buyers while underpricing may cost money. Your CENTURY 21 Dickinson realtor will perform a free Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) to help determine the optimal listing price.
Other factors to consider:
- Listing in the spring is not an automatic sale. While we may have the largest supply of buyers in the spring, we also have the most competition from other listings.
- Upgrades can add value and help your home sell fast. For example, hardwood floors, fresh paint, and granite countertops can help a home sell fast.
Inventory can move fast in the spring. Having financial matters, pre-approvals, forms and qualifications in order is key. Your CENTURY 21 Dickinson realtor is a great source of information on these items and is more than happy to walk you through the process.
Little things can make a difference when making an offer. Having a larger down payment, fewer contingencies, and being flexible on a closing date can make for an attractive offer in a competitive environment.
Our team of CENTURY 21 Dickinson realtors will work hard to help you find and buy/sell your next Bemidji homes. Experience, local market knowledge and great communication make for a smooth and successful home buying and selling transaction.
