interest rates

Interest Rates Lowered

The Federal Reserve cut interest rates last Wednesday.  This is the first cut in quite awhile and is designed to stave off an economic downturn.

How will this affect the real estate market?  This will probably not affect the typical buyer with a 30-year mortgage.  Their interest rate is already hovering around 4%.  This could help buyers with other types of financing such as adjustable-rate loans and commercial loans.

However, lower rates could help buyers with rising house prices.  With lower interest rates, buyers may be able to purchase more house than they could last year.  Instead of a home in the high $300,000’s, they may be able to afford something in the low $400,00’s.  The increase in purchase power is greater than the recent price increases.  This can be a great advantage to buyers.

Are you interested in the real estate career?  Have you always wanted to be a real estate agent?  Now is the time!  Agent Rising Real Estate School can help you achieve your goals whether online or live hours.  We have all the tools you need to take and pass your real estate exam.

summer

Selling Your Home in the Summer

Summer is a great time to sell a home.  While the market tends to pick up in the spring, summer is also a busy and profitable time to put your home on the market. There are many things you can do to put your home in the best light and sell your home quickly and at a great price.

Spruce up the exterior of the home. Mow the lawn, trim the hedges, water the flowers.  Make sure everything looks fresh and clean.  It’s a great time to show your buyers a great outdoor space.  Consider investing in some outdoor furniture if you don’t already have some.  If you do, make sure it looks clean and fresh.  New cushions can make a big difference.  It’s a great way to show them how they can make use of the outdoor space.

A hot day, try to keep the house cool.  Run the AC and highlight the central air if you have it.  Make sure it’s comfortable but not chilly.  You can also serve fresh lemonade and iced tea with lots of ice or even some fresh fruit or cool dip.  Keep the comfortable feeling fresh.

Price the house right! Make sure your home is competitive.  If you start too high and come down, people will wonder why the home is not selling.  Stay at market value and your home will sell quicker!

Summer is a Great Time to Buy a Home

Summer arrives today with longer days and nicer weather.  It’s a great time to buy a home.  Here are some reasons to hit the dirt and start looking.

Inventory is typically higher at this time of year.  Although there might be more competition, there is also more inventory to find your dream home.  The busy market will also help if you have a home to sell.

Days are brighter later so there is more time after work to look at homes in the daylight with better weather and nicer landscaping.

School is out for the summer.  You’ll have more opportunity to bring the whole family to peruse the house so everyone can agree in a shorter amount of time.

It’s also a great time to make a move and get settled in before the kids start school in the fall, especially if it involves a new school change.

You can also check out the neighborhood and get a feel for the outside potential of the home while the weather is pleasant and the yard is at its best.

Check out www.agentrising.com . Are you thinking of starting a real estate career?  We have all the tools you need to pass your real estate career.  We offer online classes and live hours to fulfill your requirements.  Classes are informative and fun and on your time. Call 508-997-8844

maintenance tips

Summer Yard Maintenance Tips

Summer is almost here and the spring real estate market is hot!  Now is a great time for summer maintenance on your yard and lawn to get your house ready for a summer sale!

It’s a great time to start weeding your lawn and flower beds before the weeds become established.  Pulling weeds after a rainstorm may be messy but wet weeds pull out very easily as opposed to a dry hard soil!

Pruning is also important at this time of year. Cut back all the dead branches to give more power to the plant.  It’s also a great time to prune any fruit trees and shrubs.

Cut the grass now before it gets too tall.  Do not cut it too short and take the time to sharpen your mower blades to start the season.  Follow up with a string trimmer to keep everything looking neat and clean.

Add mulch to all your flower beds.  Mulch helps keep the moisture in when it rains or you water.  There are all kinds of different mulches to choose from.

Use an edger on the sides of driveways and sidewalks! It leaves a crisp, clean look.

Fertilize your lawn and flower beds.  They will benefit from the boost after a long, cold winter.  There are many organic products to choose from that are safe for children and pets.

Think about your watering system now.  It’s better to water deeply and less often.

Brighten up your perennial garden with a few new additions or also some colorful annuals.  You can also add hanging baskets, pots and window boxes full of annuals to your house for a burst of color.

Get ready for the season!  Visit www.agentrising.com and start your real estate career. We have all the tools you need to pass your real estate exam. Choose online courses or our two-day bootcamp. Sign up today!
