Sell Your Home Year Round with The Strange Team!

Sell Your Home Year Round!

Fall in colorado


Many of our clients were lead to believe that the only time of year to sell a home is spring and we’re here to tell you that’s just not the case!   The fact that Colorado experiences all four seasons (some longer than others!) is one of the best parts of this state.  Adding little seasonal touches to your home for sale will help to keep yours in the minds of potential buyers.   Here’s a few of The Strange Team’s favorite tips for every time of year –

Summer –

  • Highlight your favorite outdoor features – patios, porches, decks, landscaping
  • Hanging baskets give a summery, vibrant feel to outdoor spaces
  • Add decorative touches in light colors
  • Keep your home cool, but not cold in the hot Colorado summer months

Fall –

  • Accent the season in your home with decorative gourds, fall corn and foliage in clear vases
  • Hints of cinnamon scents add warmth
  • Place pumpkins or jack-o-lanterns on your porch

  • Around the holidays, add wreaths and other festive touches

How to Sell Your Home for the Most Money

My top 3 tips I learned when selling my own home and how to sell your home for the most money!

This summer, I put myself through the process I have personally put my clients through time and time again — I put my own home on the market.  I began to think about what makes a home sell and not only that, but what can we do as homeowners to get the most amount of money out of the sale of our home.  After I completed the process, I looked back and came up with my top three ways to get top dollar from the sale of your home —

home on a pedastal

  1. LOOK FOR RED FLAGS — Go through your home top to bottom. That small leak under your bathroom sink? Fix it.  The chip in the paint in the kitchen?  Paint it.  Look for items to improve before your home goes under contract and an inspector points out items to fix
  2. STAGE IT – It is proven that professionally staged homes seller faster and for more money. Take model homes for example, when you walk into one, it looks and feels like you could call it home yourself, why? Because a professional stager came in and transformed the residence into a home with their designer eye and touches.  Walking into a home and seeing yourself living there comfortable in your mind is that feeling that makes buyers have to have that home!  We always hear the same reasons for not using a stager – it’s too expensive, why shouldn’t my furniture make the cut, we’ll just clean up, etc.  Sure, you can sell your home without staging, but if you want to make the most money from the sale of your home, I would call the stager before showings begin!  The Strange Team has trusted, professional stagers as a part of their team and offer consultations to our clients.
  3. KNOW THE MARKET – As an agent, it’s my job to watch, study and analyze the market. Most agents when they list a home do the 3 P’s – Put in MLS, Place a sign in the yard, Pray it sells.  I say take it two steps further and include price watching. Keep up with the newer homes coming onto the market (there are more and more every week!).  Pricing your home 10% under fair market value gives you an extra edge.  A lower price will bring in more traffic, every buyer in the marketplace will perceive it as an extremely high value which results in MULTIPLE OFFERS and sometimes a bidding war.  By only being 10% under, your home is still considered competitive with the other homes on the market in your neighborhood.

Home Sales Soar Throughout the Country

It’s not just Colorado that has a booming market full of buyers, it’s everywhere in the U.S.!  Now is the time to sell and find your next dream home.  Check out this article from The Denver Post about the rising home sales throughout the country —

U.S. home sales soar in July to fastest pace since 2007

WASHINGTON — Americans stepped up their homebuying for a third straight month in July, as sales accelerated to the strongest pace in eight years.

The National Association of Realtors said Thursday that sales of existing homes rose 2 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.59 million, the fastest rate since February 2007.

Sales have jumped 9.6 percent over the past 12 months, while the number of listings has declined 4.7 percent.

The housing market contains a mere 4.8 months’ supply of homes, meaning that prices are rising for an increasingly narrow set of properties. The median home price climbed 5.6 percent over the past 12 months to $234,000. Just 28 percent of the purchases last month went to first-time homebuyers, a group that historically accounted for 40 percent of sales.

“When first-time homebuyers compete with people who are more qualified borrowers that have additional cash, they tend to lose,” said Budge Huskey, CEO of the real estate brokerage Coldwell Banker.
