How to Take Advantage of Today's Hot Market - Even if You Haven't Found a Home Just Yet

It’s almost officially Summer, the weather has warmed, flowers are bursting with color, and the housing market is as hot for sellers as it has been in years. For the first time since the early to mid 2000s, REALTORS® across the country are seeing many homes go under contract relatively in the blink of an eye from the time they’re listed (sometimes even before). In many areas, it’s not unusual to see multiple offers and bids over the asking price for some homes.

This should allow plenty of time for your potential buyer to speak candidly with their agent and really look over the home.

5 Tips to help make Moving Seamless and Stress-Free

Moving can be a stressful time, however, there are several things that you can do to make your move a smooth one. When you make the decision to put your home on the market or the decision to purchase a new home, I always tell clients “now is as good of a time as any to start packing and start purging.” Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day and, unless you have to be out in a hurry, it's better to take your time and remember every little detail now, rather than coping with the moving blues later.
