Market Facts:

February has been a month of home price appreciation gains even though the number of homes for sale continues to remain low. Buyers are focusing on buying homes now instead of waiting until next year. Sellers are determining when is the best time to put their homes on the market. The prime home selling and buying season is here now and as a Seller or a Buyer, be prepared as the prime season will become market frenzy. Price appreciation is a major factor.

Real estate is local. While the above is a representation of the Denver market as a whole, please contact Roger Evans at 303-619-4500 to better understand your specific real estate market.

Advice to Sellers:

What should you do if you are ready to sell your home? First and foremost, properly price your home, make your home shine and stand out from the competition, and de-clutter. Many current home owners are in the process of preparing their home to be sold by completing renovation and/or upgrades. Be aware of what are the desirable home improvements that Buyers are looking for. Also note that Buyers will make offers that are higher than the listing price.

With continued Denver population growth and consumer demand for home ownership, market frenzy is here and can be expected to continue for the next several months.

Buyers are looking for energy efficient, low emission, tank less water heater, kitchen upgrade, open floor plan, hardwood flooring, new counter tops, bathroom upgrade, and smart and healthy homes which will allow them to meet their lifestyle priorities.

Seller preparation includes a good pricing comparison analysis, instructions on staging, what are the top improvements, introduction to a net sheet to understand the bottom line, and a conversation on how the market functions. As such, the homeowner looking to sell a home needs a professional who is a local expert, is hyper local market knowledgeable, and can assist in the Professional plan to sell one’s home. Now is the time to reach out to a Professional.
