Forget the Groundhog…Cape Cod Spring Must Be Here!

Wow!  Today is Saturday, and I didn’t have any Open Houses planned, because my team was happily occupied with buyer clients all day.  All of us remarked at the traffic of buyers coming in and out of homes…and they were appointments, not Open Houses.  Tomorrow we have three advertised Open Houses, but because of the number of people looking, we are tempted to open one of our latest properties which is located in a prime neighborhood.  Do you think the mild winter has brought about an early spring real estate market?  We think so.
 
So, what does this mean for you?  If you are a buyer, you might want to schedule your spring buying trip now.  We still have lots of inventory, market-adjusted prices, and mortgage providers offering reasonable rates.  If you are a seller, though, you might have to kick your gears into overdrive.  It might still be too cold to do any exterior painting, but you may want to consider clearing the closets, sprucing up the hardwood floors, and de-cluttering, de-personalizing, and staging your home for sale.  Bright and immaculate kitchens and baths sell homes more quickly. Not sure just what to improve? Call us and we’ll do our best to help.
