Every six months, the team at Kim and Lin Logan Real Estate generates a review with the latest market updates for our clients. Our latest holiday addition dives into the latest numbers as of Mid-December 2019.
The Kim and Lin Logan Team will sell over 70,000,000 of Real Estate in the Lake Country this year. For the 11th straight year, we will sell more real estate than any other individual agent or team of agents in our market!
The market continues to be healthy, with slight growth from 2018 to 2019. Total sales in the area were 550,000,000 and 1650 total units sold.
Average home prices continue to increase, hopping from $383,000 in 2018 to $386,000 in 2019.
Important of note is the average seller came off about 5% from their listing price, meaning homes have continued to go for about 95% of asking price.
For property sellers, it’s important to understand properties are still selling, demand is high, and there is an overall shortage of inventory available for prospective buyers.
This means it’s a great time to sell your property. That said, here are two KEY factors in maximizing the profit of your home.
- Set a realistic listing price.
If you begin with too high of an asking price, it can be challenging to attract buyers into your home. If a home sits on the market too long, fair or not, it can occasionally be stigmatized as less desirable.
- Optimize the appearance and condition of your home.
When it comes to selling your home, you only get one first impression.
It’s essential to optimize the appearance in your house and yard, so when buyers set eyes on your home, they know they have “the one.” This is easier said than done. Luckily, Kim Logan is the king of helping you find both inexpensive and appealing suggestions to optimize the appearance of your home.
