Happy New Year everyone! If selling or buying a home is one of your resolutions for 2017, please be in touch. I serve the greater Philadelphia region, including the city proper, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware counties.
January is a great time to start preparing to buy or sell. Here are a few tips for each-
Selling a House: Walk through and around your house, and look critically at your property. Are there elements that need maintenance or upkeep? Start making a list, and prioritize depending on when you plan to list your house. Remember that the spring market (Feb-June) is always the best time to sell your house quickly.
Buying a House: Talk to at least two lenders about qualifying for a mortgage if you need one. Find out which loan product will work best for you and your particular financial situation, and make a plan for saving towards closing costs. If you need help with the down payment, look into one of the many county and municipal grants for first-time home buyers. Feel free to contact me directly if you need help getting pointed in the right direction.
