Is Now a Good Time to Sell My House   People are asking:   Is now a good time to sell my house?  The answer is yes, now is a good time to sell your house.There are many moving parts to what is going on in the world today, and what is going on in your world today.  Let's take a look.  WHY IT'S A GOOD TIME TO SELLThe market is different than it was three months or four months ago.  The real estate market is even different than it was one month ago. We are still in a seller’s market, but there has been a shift.  It's a subtle shift, but it's there.  For the most part, houses are not selling in a day, nor are they getting 15 or 20 offers in a weekend.  The insanity, that was all too common this past winter, seems to have subsided some.I’m starting to see some price drops, and some homes tha...

Tips for Being a Good Pet NeighborIf you have a pet, here are some tips for being a good pet neighbor.  After all, who needs to have problems with your neighbors?  That's the last thing you need.Along with owning a pet comes the responsibility of being a good pet neighbor.  LEASH YOUR DOGMake sure your dog is on a leash before you leave your house.  In other words, don't open your garage door without having your dog's leash on first and in your hand.   Seems simple, but it happens.  Some counties have a leash law.   Palm Beach County is one that does.  Know the laws where you live.  If you live in a pet friendly gated community or a pet friendly 55+ gated community, they also have rules with regard to leashing your dogs. TRAIN YOUR DOGTrain your dog.  Some dogs don't get along well with...

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Communication & Professionalism Susan Horne is the best! She was thorough, professional and great to work with. She kept me apprised of all showings and follow ups. She was honest and forthright. She suggested good ideas on how to prepare the condo for showing. Her photos online were perfect. Following the buyer’s inspection, she immediately suggested the best way to address the issues that satisfied the buyer. I recommend Susan as a highly qualified realtor who is professional, personal and compassionate.Joan Frederick28 Colonial Club Dr 202 Boynton Beach FL

7 Great Tips For Getting Your House Ready To SellHere are 7 great tips for getting your house ready to sell.  Preparing to sell your home takes a bit of work, but it's worth it.  Clean, updated homes sell better, faster and for more money.   You want your home to look its best.  Remember, you only get one chance to make a first impression.  TIP # 1:  CURB APPEALClean up the outside.  Rake dead leaves and trash out from between and around the bushes.  There is nothing worse than seeing trash as you're walking in to see a house. Plant some pretty flowers and trim  back hedges and trees, if needed.  Paint the front door.  Make it look inviting.  I can't tell you how many complaints I get from buyers who say, They're selling their house and they can't even paint the front door!  Power wash ...

IT'S A TOUGH MARKET FOR BUYERSIt's a tough market for buyers these days.  The real estate market over the past 18 months has certainly been crazy, but the past 6 months have been especially tough on buyers.   With virtually no inventory and too many buyers for each home that comes up, it has gotten hairy and downright ugly at times. DON'T GIVE UPif you're a buyer looking for a home, don't give up.  There are always homes coming on the market - slowly, these days, I know - but they do come up.  And when they come up, you want to be ready. Let me rephrase that.  You must be ready, or you lose out.Your agent will guide you as to what you need in this regard.BE PREPAREDBe prepared to move and move fast.  Do your part.  If you're a cash buyer, have proof of funds.  If you're planning on fina...

Pool of Buyers Just ShrunkWhen the Fed raised interest rates this week, the pool of buyers just shrunk. Don't misunderstand.  Buyers are not going away.  There are still plenty of buyers around, especially in south Florida.  However, it will now cost buyers more money to who are buying with a mortgage.  That's really the bottom line. There are still cash buyers around.  Plenty of them.  Especially in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach.  People sold their homes elsewhere  and are moving here in droves. There are still buyers who have extra cash to cover the difference the mortgage rate hike presents, but this is not true for all buyers.  Some buyers will be priced out and may have to wait or come up with an alternative plan in the meantime.  The rate hike will mean all the differ...

A Dose of Lou Many of you remember Lou Ludwig .  I was lucky enough to live near him, take classes at the board where he was an instructor, and lucky enough to be mentored by him.  Lou's posts always inspired me, as I'm sure they did many of you.  When I was having one of those days when things weren't going quite right, or I needed some advice or a pick-me-up, I would always think, I need a dose of Lou.  Then I would stop and read his posts on Active Rain.  And things seemed to get better.  Or appear better.  Or I looked at them in a different way.  Sometimes I read just one post.  Sometimes it was two or three.  And sometimes I would just read them for a while.  Whatever, it always seemed to work.This started way back in 2009 and has continued to this day.  I was having one of those d...

  Since the number of homes for sale is low today, it can feel challenging to find one that checks all your boxes. But if you know which features are absolutely essential in your next home and which ones are just nice bonuses, you can land a home that fits your needs. Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for realtor.com, explains it like this: “Focus on the goal you set out for yourself, like your list of must-haves and nice-to-haves and your budget, . . . Stick to that. Be persistent.” So how do you go about creating your list of desired features? The first step is to get pre-approved for your mortgage. Pre-approval helps you better understand your budget, and that plays an important role in how you’ll craft your list. After all, you don’t want to fall in love with a home that’s too far out ...
