Now is the Time to List Your Home!

While there is still snow on the ground, now is the time to get your home on the market!  Our days have varying weather patterns that can be hard to predict, but we are busy out listing and showing homes.  Many think they need to wait until April or May roll around and the grass is getting greener and the flowers are blooming, but that's not always the case.  This 5th New England season, mud season, is the time where we start to see inventory climbing and people out looking at houses.  

So wrap up the last minute de-cluttering, touch up painting, and give us a call to get your house listed!  Not sure what the value on your home may be?  Give us a call!  We will give you our opinion of what you may be able to sell for!  What are you waiting for???

    Does your home have the Top 7 things today's homeowners really want?

    A new report, The Housing Satisfaction Gap: What People Want, but Don’t Have, measured the gap between the home features people want and the features they currently have in their own homes.

    Here’s what made the list, and what you can do to close your home’s satisfaction gap so you get top dollar when you’re ready to sell:


    1. Energy Efficiency
    Have an energy audit done to identify the best investment for your energy-improvement dollars.


    2. Renovations
    Replace worn flooring and repaint in neutral colors.


    3. Updated Kitchen
    You can replace your whole kitchen, or if you’re on a budget, paint the cabinets and update lighting and plumbing fixtures.


    4. Aging-Friendly Design
    Any time you do a major renovation, remodel with aging in mind. Consider adding a first-floor owner’s suite with a roll-in shower in the bath. When possible, replace hallways and any narrow doorways with an open floor plan.


    5. Safe Neighborhood
    Start a neighborhood watch.


    6. Privacy
    Plant hedges, put up a fence or add hardscaping features to increase the privacy of your outdoor spaces.


    7. Storage Space
    Add large closets when you remodel. Install organizers to maximize the storage space you already have in closets, the garage and outbuildings.
