Selling a home in today’s market certainly has its challenges, not only in the Greater Los Angeles area, but everywhere. Let’s add seasonal factors depending on where you are selling your home.  It’s worth mentioning the holidays, having children and/or pets to what I call the ‘extras’ for planning on selling a home.  The key factor is proper preparation. (I haven’t even brought any current political concerns into the picture.)If you live in LA and are considering selling but waiting, a date to keep in mind is April 1st 2023 when Measure ULA, as passed by voters this past November, will take effect.  Measure ULA means that properties that sell above $5 million will be taxed an additional 4% after April 1st, 2023. Properties that sell over $10 million will be taxed 5.5%; this is in addit...

Your House Could Be the #1 Item on a Homebuyer’s Wish List During the Holidays Each year, homeowners planning to make a move are faced with a decision: sell their house during the holidays or wait. And others who have already listed their homes may think about removing their listings and waiting until the new year to go back on the market. The truth is many buyers want to purchase a home for the holidays, and your house might be just what they’re looking for. Here are five great reasons you shouldn’t wait to sell your house. 1. While the supply of homes for sale has increased this year, there still aren’t enough homes on the market to keep up with buyer demand. As Nadia Evangelou, Senior Economist & Director of Forecasting at the National Association of Realtors (NAR), explains: “There’...

The importance of Pricing your Home Right Lela Ashkarian305-395-0814www.SearchFloridaKeysHomes.com  The importance of pricing your house at the right price.  Let’s be real. The housing market has cooled from the peak frenzy we saw over the past two years. And if you’re thinking of selling your house, you’re probably wondering what that means for you. My advice is simple. Recognize that this isn’t the same market as the one we had last year. But, that doesn’t mean you’ve missed your chance, just that you need a partner to help you price your house based on where we are right now. reach out at 305-395-0814  Like This One, Priced Right we had multiple offers on this even in this shifting market  Call Lela Ashkarian305-395-0814
