What To Do When You Need To Sell Your Ft. Lauderdale FL Home

Selling your home and making the most out of it is something all home sellers would appreciate. However, selling a home in Ft. Lauderdale comes with a number of challenges, and if you’re not well prepared for it, it could cause you lots of sleepless nights in the time it will take you to close the deal.

For many home sellers, getting a good price for their home is a priority. This is why many will actually invest in improving their home’s condition before putting it up for sale. This is a good idea, but it also means taking a risk, because what you do may not necessarily increase the value of your home to the extent of returning your investment.

Even so, it’s possible to improve your home’s condition without pumping in thousands of dollars into a renovation project. There are a lot of small improvements you could make that will make a big difference. Bill Gassett shares some of the more affordable ones:

7 Smart Renovations Under $500

If you’re thinking about selling your home, you may be stressed out about all the things you need to do to get it market ready, and all the costs associated with those updates. Renovations don’t have to cost you a fortune. By thinking smart about some of the updates that will have the greatest impact, you can minimize your spend and maximize your investment.

Another priority among many Ft Lauderdale homeowners that want to sell is that they want to do it within a limited amount of time. Selling your home can often take a long time, which could prove to be a problem if you’re in a situation that requires a quick sale.

For instance, you may need to relocate because of a new job or to take care of a loved one out-of-state. Maybe you just really need the money and cannot handle even one more mortgage payment. The good news is that it really is possible to sell off your home fast.

6 Clever Ways To Sell Your Home Quickly In 2016

When it comes to timing your home sale, predicting the real estate market can seem impossible. Unless you’re a psychic, you can’t know what the future holds. But you can make some predictions based on what’s happened in past real estate cycles.

For starters, 2016 is an election year. There’s also talk of interest rates potentially rising even higher than the quarter-point hike that went into effect on December 16, the first such rate increase since 2006. Your strategies for selling, because of those issues and more, might differ this year. Read full post at…

In certain cases, however, you may not really have the kind of house that would sell off quickly, and you may not have the time or money to get it into a market-worthy condition. Not to worry, because you can sell off your home for cash. This allows you to sell it off regardless of the condition it’s in, and not have to incur extra costs in the form of agent fees, commissions and repairs.

Why It’s A Great Time For Some Home Sellers In Florida

By the time the 2008 economic crisis hit the U.S., the country had more houses than it needed. This meant that homes were much cheaper back then. Fast-forward 8 years later, and you might be excused for assuming that a lot of those excess homes are still up for grabs, but that is not the case.

In fact, existing trends indicate that construction has not kept up since the crunch. The surplus is gone, and we now actually have a shortage of homes. If you have a pretty home in Florida it should sell fast but if you have an Ugly House in Miami you may need some help. Laurie Goodman and Rolf Pendall explain this better:

We’re Building 6 Homes for Every 10 New Households. Where Will People Live?

Since 2009, housing demand has significantly outstripped supply, quite significantly in some areas.  In 2015, we estimate that more than a million new households were created but only 620,000 new housing units were completed, creating a shortage of 430,370 units. This gap has pushed up home prices and rents, a trend that will continue for the foreseeable future absent imminent policy changes. Read full post at…

By and large, the U.S. real estate market is doing well. However, this shortage of houses hints at serious trouble for potential buyers. There are just not enough properties available, and home ownership may become even more costly.

Even worse, the supply-demand gap is expected to continue to grow for a couple of years before a balance is struck. Keep in mind that baby boomers are living longer, and millennials are starting their families. Demand is not going down any time soon.

Lack of New Home Construction Is Bad Omen for Buyers

Trouble in paradise? By most standards, the national real estate market is booming. But not for everybody: Aspiring buyers frustrated by the lack of available properties and soaring price of homeownership shouldn’t expect to catch a break anytime soon.

With the pace of new home construction lagging well behind the surging demand for these residences, it looks like the housing shortage is only going to get worse. See full article at…

But bad news is hardly ever bad news for everybody. If you intend to sell your home, this is a good time to do so. And if you intend to sell off your home in Florida, you’ll be happy to know that the housing market in the state is doing quite well at the moment.

Home Prices Rising Fastest in These 10 Metros

Home prices continued their upward climb this quarter in these 10 metros, but a special occurrence is pushing up prices in Florida markets.

Clear Capital’s Home Data Index (HDI) Market report, which provides insights into housing price trends and other leading indices for the real estate market at the national and local levels, found that Seattle and Tampa metros hold the top spots for the highest price increases quarter-over-quarter, each reporting an increase of 2.0 percent for June and rising 12.4 percent and 12.2 percent year-over-year, respectively.

Simply put, it’s a good time to sell your Florida home, so if you’ve been thinking about it, you should make a decision now. Selling a house is often made out to be a difficult process that consumes time and money, but it doesn’t have to be.
