January 2019 did indeed start of a little sluggish in terms of new listings and home sales in Mission, but things are definitely looking to speed up for spring. Are you ready?

Darin Germyn, President of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, said of the market:

“With inventory continuing to build, and prices softening across many of our areas and property types, buyers will be well positioned to make a move this spring.”

Buyers are out there, and as spring approaches they will continue to monitor the market for new listings and position themselves to make an offer when the time is right! But competition is also building, and it takes an experienced Realtor with tried and tested tools to sell in a competitive market!

I can advise you how to effectively price and present your property in the current market which is showing the signs of a buyer’s market. Professional photos, videos, staging and strategic online marketing are crucial to sell your home quickly and generate interest and potential multiple offers!

Many people are curious about the value of their property, and I’m currently scheduling complimentary evaluations, so don’t hesitate to call me and book yours!

My advice before you consider selling is to examine the current sales in your area (which I can help you analyze), and understand your competition. Consider your home as a product and try to detach your feelings and your history with it. If you are trying to sell, the feelings of the buyers must be satisfied or they’ll move on to another listing.

One of the first questions I get when clients are preparing to list is, “What can I do to help sell my house faster?” – my next blog posts will contain some helpful tips, so be sure to check my Facebook and Instagram feeds as well as my website.

If you are a buyer, and wondering if you are positioned to make a move, let me help answer your questions and find that perfect home! Timing is everything, and now could be the right time for you!
