Five Steps to Listing your Home for Sale

It’s an exciting time–you’ve decided to move from your current residence into the home or neighborhood of your dreams. Now it’s time to consult with your Realtor, who can advise on how to prepare your home to make a beautiful first impression and attract maximum attention—and buyers.

Five Steps to Listing Your Home for Sale

These tips from the National Association of Realtors will help your home shine!

Clean out, declutter and repair. Buyers want to imagine themselves living in their own home, not yours, so remove all personal items such as photos, quirky collections, knick-knacks and most art objects. Fresh paint in a light and bright neutral color provides an immaculate blank slate for buyers. For the most part, today’s buyers are not looking for a project. Consult with your Realtor about which repairs are needed to make sure your home is in tip-top shape to attract desired buyers.

Stage to perfection. Some surveys show that sellers get back the money they paid for a professional stager times three. When potential buyers tour your home either online or in person, you have only seconds to hook them, to make them want to see more. A stager, working closely with your real estate agent, will help you set the tone for that first look.

Elevate curb appeal. Power wash your home, walkways, porches, fences, driveway, deck and all other outside surfaces. Freshen landscaping with seasonal plantings and a layer of mulch, add floral pots to key areas to draw attention to the front door or courtyard and consider a neutral coat of paint to convey the image of a perfectly maintained residence.

Hire a professional photographer. Data shows the 97 percent of new home searches start online. Eye-catching photography is the first opportunity you have to engage potential buyers—whether online or in print—and you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

Price strategically. Smart sellers know that a strategic price attracts maximum attention – and prospective buyers. Today’s buyers understand home values. They’re jumping on things that are well priced, but they’re passing on homes they don’t think are worth what the seller is asking. Pricing is critical.

Buying and selling a home is often one of life’s biggest financial transactions. At The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty, our expert agents know the market, the comparable sales and the trends, and are committed to advising sellers how to get top dollar for their primary investment. Click here to consult with an expert Realtor at The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty.

Top Reasons to List Your Home Now

The Nashville real estate market is facing a dilemma: a tight supply of homes for sale. In fact, the monthly home sales report generated by the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS® shows a 3.8-months supply of single-family homes and 2.9-months supply of condos currently available in the Nashville area market. That’s considered a seller’s market.

Top Reasons to List Your Home Now in Nashville

Looking for a home in Belle Meade? This perfect combination of traditional and modern at 4414 Iroquois is currently listed. Click on the image for more photos and information from The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty.

Real estate experts at Keeping Current Matters (KCM) have outlined compelling reasons to list a property now to take advantage of eager buyers and limited competition. Expert agents with The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty back up those reasons.

Only Serious Buyers Are Out—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.”

There Is Far Less Competition—Housing supply shrinks at this time of year, making the choices for buyers more limited. Don’t wait until later in the fall, when all the other potential sellers in your market will put their homes up for sale.

The Process Will Be Quicker—The slower market means that banks are not inundated with purchase and refinancing loan requests—cutting timelines and frustration levels for buyers and sellers.

There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move-Up—Prices are projected to appreciate by more than 25 percent from now to 2018. If you are moving to a higher priced home, it will wind up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait.

The low inventory situation really puts sellers at an advantage. If you are ready to list your home, contact us at 615-463-3333 or stop by our office at 2002 Richard Jones Road, Suite C-104; Nashville 37215.

Nashville named the Most American City

Do you ever wonder which cities bleed the most red, white and blue?

A new report from Wallethub ranks Nashville as the No. 1 U.S. city that most resembles America overall, based on demographic stats including age, income, race, education household makeup, and household tenure.

The survey, which relied on data from the U.S. Census and Zillow, considered the 366 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. The data set included 26 metrics divided into four categories. Metrics ranged from average age and education level to median house price, wealth gap and civilian employment by industry.

When tallied, a score of “1” means the city most closely resembled the country as a whole in that category, while a score of “366” means it resembled the country the least.

Nashville ranked No. 8 in socio-demographics, No. 19 in housing, No. 7 in economics and No. 4 in education, earning it the top overall spot.

Nashville is one of Ten Markets Where Homebuilding Is Booming

As we look at the state of the Nashville real estate market, we have found that the number of home sales continues to increase and inventory remains low. These two factors directly affect new home construction… and numbers from MetroStudy show that Nashville is one of ten markets where homebuilding is booming.

In fact, the following markets are seeing some of the largest increases in homebuilding activity year-over-year in the second quarter:

  • Reno, Nev.
  • Rio Grande Valley, Texas
  • Southern California
  • Atlanta
  • Chicago
  • Nashville
  • St. George/Mesquite, Utah
  • Sarasota/Bradenton, Fla.
  • Charlotte, N.C.
  • Naples/Fort Myers, Fla.

New home construction starts and sales in Nashville both increased 9 percent in the second quarter, according to Metrostudy.

There were 1,402 new home sales in Nashville during the second quarter, up 9 percent from 1,287 closings on new homes in the same period of 2013, according to Eugene James, Metrostudy’s regional director. On an annual basis (for the twelve months ended June 2014), there were 6,138 new homes sold in the Nashville market, a 23 percent increase compared to the prior twelve months.

Here are the top 10 markets for year-over-year growth in housing starts based on second-quarter Metrostudy data.

Meanwhile, builders began construction of 1,592 new homes in Nashville in the second quarter, also a 9 percent year-over-year quarterly increase, James said. That’s a 21 percent increase on annual basis.

Metrostudy found there is a 1.7 months supply of finished homes on the market, which James said is below Nashville’s norm of 2 to 2.5 months.

“There’s an undersupply of houses that are immediately available,” James said. “The demand of houses is outpacing the supply. Builders are trying to build as many houses as they can to meet demand.”
