While Spring definitely hasn't sprung in DC, the housing market is picking up at a good clip this January which should indicate we are in for a busy Spring. So, if you are in the market to list or buy, now is the time to get started. Spring competition can be fierce. Lots of homes will hit the market, and lots of buyers will be out, but with the vast choice they will be picky.
If you plan to sell your home, you need to have your ducks in a row. Are all of your systems in good shape? Declutter? Do you need to repaint a room? Make other repairs? Now is the time to get a jump on those items so your property is ready to go. Curious as to what you should do to your house to get it ready? Call or email me for a free consultation on how to prepare your house.
As a buyer, start looking now. There are a lot of great properties already on the market. If you see something now that you love, don't wait. It will not last. I am still seeing great homes going under contract in a week--yes a week, in January.Let's discuss how to make a strategic offer.
