A Team Florida Keller Williams Realtors Miami Broward Florida. Today’s buyers have good credit and income but not a lot of cash to make improvements, so it is well worth it for our sellers to make the property move in ready. For homes, we pay for a professional inspection. For Hillcrest condos, we know what to look for that can derail a deal, so we want to either fix what needs to be fixed or disclose it to the buyers so that it does not become an issue later.
Preparing a home or condo to be shown in its best light takes time. It may be as simple as painting, a good cleaning and adding some colorful plants to the front yard or porch/balcony. AS-IS properties do not fare as well in this market place. Today’s buyers need a property that is move-in ready. They are willing to pay a little more up front with a mortgage rather than have to come up with cash to make expensive repairs.
WANT US TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH YOUR HOME OR CONDO IS WORTH?
We can’t. The current market dictates the sales prices. What we can tell you is that there are a lot of first time buyers out there right now taking advantage of the still-low interest rates. And the baby-boomer generation, the second largest, is down-sizing and buying second “homes” (condos). This is a great time sell BUT always remember that the best time to sell is when you want to live somewhere else. Do not let the market of the day tell you otherwise. At A Team Florida, our motto is “Love Where You Live”. Money cannot dictate that. There is no reason to move is you are happy where you are.
What we CAN tell you is everything you need to know about how to get the most money out of your home or condo if you are ready to sell. We know Hillcrest condos inside and out. We know what the main issues are when it comes to repairs and we can take care of them before we list. However, every home in Hollywood is just a little bit different which is why we pay for an inspection before we put a home on the market so we can prevent the buyer’s inspection from killing the deal.
When you are ready to interview Realtors for the job of selling your home or condo, call us.
