Preparing Your Home to Sell This Summer 2018-North Shore Chicago Real Estate

Leave a comment

While several Chicago North Shore homes may be sold each week, the process may not be as easy for sellers as it was five or 10 years ago. Surviving in today’s real estate world requires experience and training in such fields as online real estate marketing, relocation savvy, financing options, negotiating and closing, the very expertise available from local North Shore-Chicago real estate professionals. Millions of existing homes are sold each year and, while each transaction is different, every owner wants the same thing: the best possible deal with the least amount of hassle and aggravation.

Are You Ready?Sold

The home-selling process typically starts several months before a property is made available for sale. It’s necessary to look at a home through the eyes of a prospective buyer and determine what needs to be cleaned, painted, repaired and tossed out.
Ask yourself: If you were buying this home, what would you want to see? The goal is to show a home that looks good, maximizes space and attracts as many buyers as possible.

When Should You Sell?

As with several locations across the country, the North Shore Chicago marketplace tends to be active in the summer because parents and/or young adults want to enroll in classes at the beginning of the school year (usually in August). Summer is also typically when most homes are likely to be available.
Generally speaking, markets tend to have some balance between buyers and sellers year-round. For example, a given North Shore community may have fewer buyers in late December, but it’s also likely to have fewer homes available for purchase. As a result, home prices tend to rise or fall due to general patterns of supply and demand, rather than the time of year. Look to a skilled, North Shore Real Estate professional can be a sound decision to assess local real estate market activity and trends.
