I've been a Real Estate Broker for over 18 years and in the time, I've been always asked of the following questions:
How's the market?
Is it a good time to sell?
What's my home worth?
What I always answer is "It depends.". There are many contributing factors in determining the true worth of your home. As a realtor, it is part of my job to constantly monitor market activity to provide realistic view of that to expect and how to prepare.
It allows you to evaluate the property long before you list it. Most of the time, people spend a lot of money that "they don't have" or spending it to wrong things.
It is never too early to prepare. As an experienced broker - I am more than happy to work with you and give you insights with today's market and prepare you and your property.
