Each spring we follow a predictable pattern in Platt Park and Washington Park.
Buyer demand is very strong and supply is low resulting often in multiple offers and prices being bid up. If you are planning on Selling your Platt Park home or your Washington Park home here’s a few things you need to know?
- Pricing is still crucial. You can’t just throw any number out there and get results. Overpriced homes can still be passed over by the market. It is also, ironically easy to underprice a home. Sellers can think they hit the jackpot when actually they could have potentially made even more. Expert consultation with local knowledge is essential!
- Negotiations can get a bit crazy. There are a lot of keys to listing and negotiating in this environment to achieve a maximum advantage. Don’t go this alone or with someone inexperience; you could be leaving money on the table. Work with someone who’s closed many transactions in the neighborhood!
- What if I intend to purchase a home after I sell, will I be able to find one? We hear this a lot. Buying a home in this market is certainly challenging but absolutely an attainable goal—you just need someone who knows what they are doing to guide you. We’ve never had a stranded, homeless client, we know how to play the game—you’ll be just fine.
The market frenzy will run through the end of June but then will begin to cool some after that. If you are ready to take advantage of this market or just want to discuss your particular situation give us a call. We’d love to meet with you!
