What is Your Home Worth?

The world of Real Estate has changed dramatically over the last 23 years, everything you want to know can now be found on the internet!  Every home has a ton of pictures and all you need to do is pick the one that works for you.  So why a Realtor?  You have information, you can figure out the financing...  What does the Realtor add to your ability to purchase when you already have access to all the information?  There is a difference between information and knowledge!  This is not just any purchase, this is not stocks, bonds or a liquid asset.  Why are you purchasing now?
Are you thinking about getting married?  Expanding your family or downsizing? This is not just a purchase of brick and mortar, this is a home you are buying, the largest investment most people will make.  Its where you will come to at the end of the day....all of this brings a degree of emotion and uncertainty that needs the impartial council and advice of someone who does this every day, someone with the knowledge and understanding of the local market  to help you through the process.
 
If you are in the market to move up, right now is a great time to buy...there is a lot of inventory and the rates are still low.   If you are like most buyers, you are looking for a great home in move in condition...and the online pictures don't always match what you see in person.  So if you know that good photos aren't always the reality, have you considered that a good Realtor may not be a great photographer?

Have you considered the fact that you might be missing the perfect house, just because it's not too pretty on the internet?  These are just a few of the reasons why an experienced agent is your first step to finding or selling a home.

 
 
Just as all markets are local, all purchases and sales are specific.  While home prices are going up, keep in mind, they went down for many years....a 3-5% year over year increase may still leave you underwater if you purchased in 2007.  

What year is the market back to in your specific town or neighborhood is information you should be asking about.

 
Are you considering selling a home in Fairfield County?  Your needs and exposure to the buyer market of Westchester County are not only important, they are critical.  Your exposure to the big picture market of Manhattan and the boroughs is what may bring you the highest list to sale ratio.  Knowledge of syndication and it's effectiveness as a marketing tool is now part of what you should be expecting from your listing agent.
 
Are you a first time home buyer?   As a buyer you may believe the short sale or foreclosure market is a great way to invest, you will need to have an agent who is willing to educate you as to what that involves, before you spend 6 or 8 months waiting to see if your purchase will actually happen.  
 
Real Estate offers great opportunities for many people but just as every home is different~ every transaction is unique.   You need real experience and real advice working for you.  If you feel that you could benefit from almost 23 years of purchase, sales and real estate management experience....please email, text or call me.
 
I look forward to hearing from you.
 
 
All the best,
