To demystify the process so you get the most out of your purchase, contact us to a learn about the rundown of what you need to consider before you buy and what you can expect from the buying process itself, plus tips to make life easier after you buy your first home.
Sell A Home
You can sell your home at any time of the year, but there are definitely some months (and even specific days) when selling is easier, faster, and more profitable. In general, spring and summer are the hottest homebuying seasons of the year, while sales slow down as we get into fall and winter.
If you want to maximize the money you make on your house, a study from ATTOM Data shows that selling in June, May, or July are your best bets. Homes sold in June make about 9.2% more than average, while those in May sell for 7.4% more. There’s also data that shows what day you list your home matters, too. According to Redfin, homes listed on Thursdays sell for more money and at a faster pace than those listed on other days of the week.
Flips & Rentals
Before getting into the nitty-gritty of how to flip a house, it’s important to be clear on what the term “house flipping” really means. At its core, flipping a house is a way to leverage real estate as an investment. In this case, instead of buying a home to live in, the investor buys a property, holds onto it for a short period of time, usually while making renovations, and then tries to sell it for a profit.
Flipping an investment property is all about spending your money wisely. To start, the goal is to find a property that is undervalued for the area, typically because it needs a decent amount of work. Then, it’s important to select the right renovations, ones that will catch buyers’ attention and add value to the property. Finally, once the renovations are done, it’s crucial to invest in marketing strategies that will garner a profit.
