Harbenson Home Sales Needn’t be Stalled until Springtime

Past history tells us that home sales in Harbenson perk up come springtime, just as the advent of colder weather brings a slowdown in Harbenson home sales. But what if your own family and professional situations dictate that now is the time to list your own Harbenson home? What if the weather curve balls Mother Nature has been serving up have to take a back seat to your own scheduling imperatives?

Fortunately, the seasonal home sales ups and downs needn’t deter those plans. The fact is, several advantages can be had when a motivated seller and determined Realtor® put their minds to it. It’s largely a matter of attitude:

1. Make Your Home Feel like an Escape from Winter

Instead of allowing the cold weather to burden your whole endeavor, try to bring a little home sales jujitsu into play. The classic Japanese defense tactic relies on using the strength and weight of an adversary to disable him. In the same way, you can turn inclement conditions to your advantage by recognizing that they can help your home stand out as a beckoning refuge. Think: the nastier the weather, the better! As soon as potential buyers walk in, do everything you can to help them feel the sense of comfort a substantial shelter like this provides. The object is for them to recognize that here is the kind of home they want to wake up to on cold mornings!

Warmth is the starting point, so keep the temperature cozy (this is no time to fuss about the heating bill). If you have a fireplace, be sure it’s lit when visitors arrive. Fluffy comforters in the bedrooms and throw rugs that break up large areas of bare flooring will add, too. Further the effect with cups of warm cocoa, apple cider, tea or coffee that will warm buyers from the inside.

2. Clear All Walkways

It’s relatively easy to control the interior of your house by turning up the heat. Outside, though, you’re at the mercy of Mother Nature. Clear pathways, and pay special attention to any surfaces that might become slippery when the weather conspires against you. It’s especially important to clear the driveway, stone paths, sidewalks, and anywhere else buyers may want to inspect or visit. A clear path can be the difference between getting an offer…and getting sued!

3. Use the Slump to Your Advantage

Scads of homeowners buy the myth that Harbenson home sales are next to impossible to accomplish during wintertime. That’s why many—even some whose homes have been listed since autumn—fail to energetically market their homes until the weather clears (sometimes even failing to respond to home tour requests). That gives you a competitive advantage—and another jujitsu opening. Since prospects doing a Harbenson house tour will be less hurried than usual, your Realtor should be ready to spend more time with them to share persuasive points that make your property the standout value they’ve been after!

Sure, home sales during the shiver-producing months presents particular challenges, but the hidden advantages can be decisive. If you have been ready to sell, but hesitating until kinder weather surfaces, do give me a call!

Getting a Mortgage in Milton Means Weighing the Alternatives

A vital part of buying a Milton home is getting a Milton mortgage. But not all mortgages are the same. There are two general classes of mortgages; fixed rate mortgages keep the same interest rate for the full duration of the debt. The interest rates for adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) change every year after an initial period expires. You also choose the duration of the loan.

That’s the easy part. When it comes to choosing those details, coming up with the right option for your family can be a brain-twister (especially when you realize how big a difference different future scenarios might present). When you go about getting a Milton mortgage, you need to account consider the major factors -

· Affordability. Your budget for month-to-month payments is the largest single element to gauge when getting a mortgage in Milton. If you want to ensure lower monthly payments and minimize the risk of increases, tilt toward a longer-term fixed rate mortgage. If you can afford to risk a higher interest rate, a short-term ARM might be best.

· Future Rates. This can be a key issue when choosing between a fixed-rate mortgage and an ARM. If you suspect interest rates will decrease over time, you might tilt toward the ARM, since those mortgage payments will eventually decrease along with interest rates. If interest rates are headed up over the long haul, a fixed rate lets you to lock in today’s lower rates.

· Permanence. If you plan to live in your new home for just a short period, your choice for getting a mortgage may be less complicated. ARMs usually start out at a lower rate than do fixed-interest mortgages, and if you move before the adjustment period begins, you can take advantage of the lower initial rate and avoid the future possible payment increase.

Like all financial decisions, getting a mortgage in Milton should be carefully undertaken: always keeping in mind your long-term financial goals. I’m here to help clarify the many issues that enable my clients’ success: call me today if you are thinking about a move this spring!
