I recently got a call from a lady looking for an apartment rental. She needed to find something but was not in a hurry.  She said her home was selling in a month. I explained how we hardly have any rentals in our town, she would have better luck in the nearby cities. I then said surely your Realtor told you of the severe shortage of rentals. She said No,  I sold the property on my own and I do not want to live in the city. Me:  Oh then I hope in your Purchase agreement it says you have to find suitable housing, a place to live. No,  I didn't know.  I felt so bad for her.  She was concerned she was going to be homeless.

How many Houses Does the average Home Buyer view before Purchasing?    HGTV would have you believe home buyers look at 3 homes and then decide on one home. The Home Search ProcessBuyers typically searched for 10 weeks and looked at a median of five homes, and viewed four homes only online. The number of weeks searching for a home grew from eight weeks seen in the 2020 and 2021 reports. Fast forward to today, Oct. 25, 2023  My current buyers just put a home under agreement to purchase. We started the home search on Aug. 24, 2023   After a lengthy Zoom video conference call, I learned they were pre approved, an important first step. They also were in no hurry because they wanted to move in Dec. for a job change. I advised them of the low inventory and time line to buy a home. We needed to...

Before listing your home for sale  Before listing your home for sale, consider any repairs or upgrades you can make to elevate the value of the home.  Every market is different,  your real estate professional can help you decide what is worth repairing or upgrading and what may not be.  In my area of MA & RI,  the following is the number one tip to help to sell your home quicker and for Top dollar. Painting-  Painting gives you the biggest bang for your buck!                             Nothing makes a room more inviting and updated than painting.  Light colors are best but stay away from pure white as it can appear too harsh. Also peeling paint outside the home can be a problem as many lenders may Deny the loan based on peeling paint and rotted wood.
