Welcome to another edition of Mark's Market Update. Consistent with the past couple of weeks, interest rates have steadied and inventory levels continue to be low. As the weather turns and we enter the spring market, we expect inventory to pick up. Sellers, start getting your home ready by working on the exterior and interior. Curb appeal is important, with updated landscaping, fresh mulch and flowers. Pools should be open for the beginning of showings. Interior updates should include de-cluttering, painting, removing wall paper, new carpet (if current worn) and other "move in ready" updates. Buyers are still very critical and those homes prepared for sale, are seeing premiums being paid. If you have any questions about buying, selling, investing, home values, or questions re: preparation for sale, do not hesitate to call email or text.
