#1 Reason to Not Wait to List your Sacramento Home

The #1 Reason to Not Wait Until Spring to Sell Your sacramento home

The #1 Reason to Not Wait Until Spring to Sell Your House | MyKCM

We ran across this great post – courtesy of the good folks at Keeping Current Matters and thought you might enjoy the read.

Many Sacramento home sellers believe that spring is the best time to place their homes on the market because buyer demand traditionally increases at that time of year, but what they don’t realize is that if every homeowner believes the same thing, then that is when they will have the most competition!

The #1 Reason to List Your Home in the Winter Months is Less Competition!

Housing supply traditionally shrinks at this time of year, so the choices buyers have will be limited. The chart below was created using the months’ supply of listings from the National Association of Realtors.

The #1 Reason to Not Wait Until Spring to Sell Your House | MyKCM

As you can see, the ‘sweet spot’ to list your home for the most exposure naturally occurs in the late fall and winter months (November – February). 

Temperatures aren’t the only thing that heats up in the spring – so do listings!

The #1 Reason to Not Wait Until Spring to Sell Your House | MyKCM

In 2017, listings increased by nearly half a million houses from December to June. Don’t wait for these listings to come to market before you decide to list your house.

Added Bonus: Only Serious Buyers Are Out in the Winter

At this time of year, only those purchasers who are serious about buying a home will be in the marketplace. You and your family will not be bothered and inconvenienced by mere ‘lookers.’ The lookers are at the mall or online doing their holiday shopping.

Bottom Line

If you have been debating whether or not to sell your home and are curious about market conditions in your area, let’s get together to help you decide the best time to list your house for sale.

How to Choose Your Sacramento Realtor

Looking to sell your Sacramento Home? Choosing the right Sacramento Realtor could make all the difference. Find out the best way now…

Hi Im Mike with the Rigley Realty Group. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to our channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

Looking to sell your Sacramento home but don’t know where to turn. Here are essential questions you should ask. I’ve also included a free report 7 Costly Mistakes Sellers Make When Selling Their Home. Its yours free just for stopping by today.

The National Association of Realtors state that as a rule 75% of the time sellers choose the first Realtor they talk to but only 69% said they would recommend the agent they used to someone else. Yikes that a pretty big disconnect. The thing with Realtors is you don’t know you have a bad fit until it’s too late. Here are some suggestions to avoid falling into that mistake.

We know that buyers and sellers work with people they know like and trust. Even if the agent came highly recommended to you take the time to interview them and at least one if not two other agents. This is for many the biggest financial undertaking you will ever make. Spend the time upfront to make sure it’s a good fit for all.

Here are some questions to ask:

How long have you been in Real Estate and how many homes do you sell each year?

The last thing you want to be is someone’s first experience in helping someone buy or sell a home. This is a business where experience counts

What is your specific marketing strategy for my home?

Hope and wish is not a strategy. Your agent should be showing you their full marketing plan up front without you having to ask.

How long do you expect my home to take to sell and what’s plan B if it doesn’t?

We like to stay focused on plan A so we don’t get distracted by plan B, C D etc. We have them but our plan is to sell your home within a reason able amount of time and are pretty upfront about that. Yes we have back up plans and can share them but plan A is always our primary focus.

What should I expect from you as far as communication?

Nationally the number one complaint consumers have about Realtors is they list their home and never hear back from the agent. Nail that piece don up front.

Are your services guaranteed?

Ours are. This is a partnership for both you and the Realtor. Your Realtor should be willing to stand by their word and back what they say with actions.

So what is the worst way to hire and agent?

NEVER hire the agent with who gives you the highest estimated list price and or the lowest commission. It’s easy to over inflate a list price to get the business only to beat you down on the price later. It takes real courage to risk not getting the listing but maintain our integrity. Same goes for commission. Ask yourself. If an agent is so willing to give up their pay, how quickly will they be willing to give up your hard earned equity? Think about it… I hope this all helps.

Sacramento County Real Estate Trends

What’s the latest in the Sacramento County Real Estate Market? Find out here…

For details of surrounding communities like Elk Grove, Arden Arcade and Carmichael click here

Hi Im Mike with the Rigley Realty Group. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to my channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away and Christmas now only 48 days away, we are quickly approaching the end of 2018. With most buyers and seller sights set on the coming year it’s important to know homes sell year round. So what’s going on in the Sacramento Real Estate Market? Let’s find out now

Where is the Housing Market Headed?

October continued the recent trend of the second half of the year. 21.5% more homes came on the market in October as compared to last year but 5.3% less than last month. 6.7% fewer homes sold compared to last year but 4.9% more than last month. Seasonally we generally see that kind of jump and fall off respectively. New contracts were 20.6% more than last month and about the same as last year. Inventory is back down to 2.1 month’s supply from a seasonal high of 2.4 months last month.

Technically it’s still a seller’s market at 2.1 month’s supply of homes but the feel is more like a buyer’s market than a seller’s market. Yes we are still getting multiple offers on right priced premium homes. But home perceived as overpriced are not even getting showings much less offers. The average sold price per square foot was up 5.9% from last year but down .4% to last month. Gone are the days a seller could slap on a high price and expect to get offers. Now, unless the home is right priced buyers are not even looking at over priced homes.

So, what’s it all mean?

If selling – price your home right and be ready to make adjustments as needed. If buying, you have more leverage from now through the end of the year than you have had in previous years. Real Estate is cyclical and usually runs in 6-7 year cycles. The historical bottom of the Sacramento Real Estate Market was the 4th quarter of 2011 meaning we are headed directly into the end of 7 year cycle. These cycles are not exact. The historical peak of the market was August of 2005 but didn’t reach rock bottom until the end of 2011, so about 6 years 4 months.

 If you are thinking about selling in the next 12 months NOW is the time to call us.

The better prepared your home is before it hits the market the quicker it will sell and sell for more. Call for a Strategic Marketing Consultation and we’ll show you specifically how we get more for your home in less time. We’ll also talk about any repairs and improvements that you can make to maximize your return. More importantly, we’ll tell you what changes NOT to make saving you both time and money. If you are thinking about selling in the next 12 months, call us today for your Strategic Marketing Consultation. We will cover your goals and our unique approach to getting you the most amount of money in the shortest number of days with the fewest hassles

If you are thinking about Buying in the next 6 months NOW is the time to call us.

Again preparation is the key. Not only will we help you get pre-qualified for a loan so when we find that perfect home for you, you won’t miss out, we also show you our time tested home buying strategy that gets our buyers offers accepted 98.7% of the time, even when those offers are not the highest offer.

Sacramento County Real Estate Market Update 11/05/18

Sacramento County Real Estate Trends

What’s the latest in the Sacramento County Real Estate Market?

Sacramento County Real Estate Trends

Welcome to our weekly Real Estate market update for the week of 11/5/18

As compared to the same time last month there are about the same number of homes for sale as last week. Less homes closed escrow but that has more to do with how the month fell as it does Real Estate activity. Same goes for the number of homes that went into contract. Inventory is and price per SF / median price are likewise affected by the way this week fell vs. last month

 

So, what’s it all mean?

We are headed right into the holidays. Seasonal changes are expected so right if selling, right pricing and preparation are more important than ever. For buyers, old listings are like sharks to blood in the water. Chances are you will either not get showings or offers and when you do they will be less than asking.

If buying, the advantage is working in your favor. More selection also means less competition. Buying at less than asking is happening on older listings.

7 Costly Mistakes to Avoid When Selling Your Sacramento Home

Want to save thousands when selling your Sacramento home? Find out here...

Hi I’m Mike with the Rigley Realty Group. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to our channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

Here’s 7 costly mistakes to avoid when selling your Sacramento Home. For those who watch this video all the way through, there is a free report the goes deep on the “why” each mistake is important. So let’s get started

Mistake #1:  Failing to DRESS Your Property For Sale

Buyers look for HOMES, not houses.  They buy homes in which they FEEL they would like to live.  One of the major factors in getting your home to sell quickly is very simple: MAKE IT FEEL LIKE “HOME.”

Most buyers select their home based on EMOTIONS.  Once their decision is made to buy, they justify their purchase with LOGICAL reasons:  facts and features.  So, it’s most important to make your home appeal to all senses.  Your property is NOT the only home the buyers will see.  You are competing with other homes in the market, and some of them have been professionally decorated.

Mistake #2:  Pricing Your Home Incorrectly

Every seller wants to realize as much money as possible when selling their home.  The natural inclination is to price the home high, thinking you can always come down in the future.

But a listing price that is too high frequently nets the seller LESS money than an original price at market value.  Why is this?  Because people looking for homes in your price range will reject your home in favor of other homes in a reasonable price range.

Mistake #3: Limiting The Marketing Exposure Of Your Property

The most obvious marketing tools everyone uses (Open Houses and the MLS) are only moderately effective.  Successfully marketing of your home (getting the highest price, at the right time, and with no hassles and problems) requires much more.

Surprisingly, less than 1% of homes are sold at an open house.  Agents use open houses to attract buying prospects, not to sell your home.  And advertising studies show that less than 3 % of people purchased their home because they saw it in an ad.

Mistake #4: Thinking Your Appraisal Is The Market Value Of Your Home

An appraisal is an opinion of value for an entirely different purpose than selling your home.  Usually an appraisal is to provide a bank or mortgage institution information to fund a loan.  If a lender is motivated to loan you money, his appraisal may come in higher than the true market value of your property.  The appraiser might ignore other issues in his analysis, such as foreclosures in the market or distressed sales.

When a buyer looks at a home, they look at all the factors:  foreclosures, distressed sales, bankruptcies, divorces, and area fluctuations.  Don’t make the mistake of thinking the “appraisal” value of your home is what a diligent buyer would pay.

Mistake #5: Not Understanding Your Rights And Obligations

Real estate law and regulations can be very complex.  When you sign a contract for the sale of your property, it’s a legally binding document.  An improperly written contract can create many problems for you:  a sale could fall through, cost you thousands in forced repairs, inspections, and remedies for items included or excluded in the purchase offer.

You must understand what repairs and closing costs you are responsible for in a contract.  And you must know whether the property can legally be sold “as is,” or how deed restrictions or local zoning will affect your transaction.

Mistake #6: Signing A Listing Agreement With NO WAY OUT!

Just about every agent has good intentions about helping you sell your home.  But situations and circumstances change.  The agent might have personal problems, or simply decide to retire or get out of the real estate business.

Or other situations may arise where the agent isn’t doing his or her job as you expected.  The home may not be getting the exposure you desire.  Or perhaps you haven’t heard from your agent in six weeks!

What do you do now? Call us to find out about our 100% satisfaction guarantee

Mistake #7: Selecting The WRONG Agent

Do you remember the old riddle that goes, “What do you call the person who graduated dead-last in their medical school class?”

Answer: “DOCTOR!”

Well, it’s the same with real estate professionals.  Someone with vast experience and extraordinary professionalism usually costs the same as someone with little or no experience, or with compromising standards.  You need to know how to tell the difference up front.

In Sacramento, Who Pays the Buyers Realtor

When Buying a home in Sacramento, who pays the buyers Realtor? Lets find out now...

Hi I’m Mike with the Rigley Realty Group. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to our channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

While we provide services to buyers at usually no cost to the buyer, we don’t work for free. So how do Buyers Realtors get paid? Let’s find out now…

In California the seller customarily pays the buyers broker and the broker pays the agent. Is it always that way? Not necessarily but usually yes. Is the buyer’s agent working for free? Heck no but we generally do work at no cost to the buyer.

Now an argument can be made that it’s the buyer who is really paying all the commissions in a  higher sales price of the home. It’s an arguable valid point for sure. If that is the case, it would stand to reason that you should be able to buy a home from a For Sale By Owner or FSBO as they are called for an anywhere from 2-6% discount. It’s rare that happens but it can occasionally.

There are such things as Buyer / Broker agreements where the buyer agrees to a guaranteed minimum commission their agent will earn. If the seller is not paying that amount the buyer agrees to make up the difference. The Buyer / Broker agreement also locks the buyer into working with only their agent for a set amount of time regardless of the job they do. Personally, your word is your bond with us and vice versa. If you don’t want to work with me, I really don’t want to work with you so let’s just part ways and be on our way. Life’s too short and really no contract is going to make a difference.

The right agent is going to be your home consultant for life. If they are purely transactional and are only looking at you as a commission, you might have the wrong person working for you. Yes, even if they are getting paid by the seller, they are working for you. Never be afraid to interview more than one Realtor when looking for a home. This can be a very daunting experience and you need a trusted advisor to guide you through the process.

OK, I hope this helps. If you are still not sure what to do or need more information click on the contact us link below or call today and we’d be more than happy to schedule a Strategic Marketing Consultation with you

Thinking of Selling Your sacramento Home? Here’s Why You Need A Pro in Your Corner

We ran across this great post – courtesy of the good folks at Keeping Current Matters and thought you might enjoy the read.

Thinking of Selling Your Home? Here’s Why You Need A Pro in Your Corner | MyKCM

With home prices on the rise and buyer demand still strong, some sellers may be tempted to try and sell their homes on their own without using the services of a real estate professional.

Real estate agents are trained and experienced in negotiation and, in most cases, the seller is not. Sellers must realize that their ability to negotiate will determine whether or not they get the best deal for themselves and their families.

Here is a list of just some of the people with whom the seller must be prepared to negotiate with if they decide to For Sale by Owner (FSBO):

  • The buyer who wants the best deal possible
  • The buyer’s agent who solely represents the best interests of the buyer
  • The buyer’s attorney (in some parts of the country)
  • The home inspection companies, which work for the buyer and will almost always find some problems with the house
  • The termite company if there are challenges
  • The buyer’s lender if the structure of the mortgage requires the sellers’ participation
  • The appraiser if there is a question of value
  • The title company if there are challenges with certificates of occupancy (CO) or other permits
  • The town or municipality if you need to get the CO permits mentioned above
  • The buyer’s buyer in case there are challenges with the house your buyer is selling

Bottom Line

The percentage of sellers who have hired real estate agents to sell their homes has increased steadily over the last 20 years. Let’s get together to discuss all that we can do to make the process easier for you.

Sacramento County Real Estate Market Update 10/29/18

Sacramento County Real Estate Trends

What’s the latest in the Sacramento County Real Estate Market?

Sacramento County Real Estate Trends

Welcome to our weekly Real Estate market update for the week of 10/29/18.

As compared to the same time last month there are 2.8% fewer homes for sale, 17.4% less homes closed escrow but 11.4% more went into contract. Inventory is back to a reasonable 2.8 months supply indicating the continued push towards a neutral market. Average price per sf remained basically the same and the median price was down slightly at 360,000 or -3.2%

So, what’s it all mean?

If selling, price and prepare your home right the first time. For buyers, old listings are like sharks to blood in the water. Chances are you will either not get showings or offers and when you do they will be less than asking.

If buying, the advantage is working in your favor. More selection also means less competition. Buying at less than asking is happening on older listings
