Why Sell Your Home in 2019?


Why Sell Your Home in 2019?


#whysellyourhousein2019There may be good reasons to sell your home in 2019..We can’t exactly say what 2019 will mean for the real estate market but, there are a few good indicator’s that may make 2019 the year for the “For Sale Sign”.

First off, as we are heading into the Spring thaw..there are fewer homes on the market. When inventory is low it increases your chance of a home sale. Less homes on the market mean more exposure for the homes that are. Yeah for you!! Right?

Second, thanks to our evolving economy, interest rates are on the rise. However, they are still relatively low..That’s a plus for you as well.

What’s more? God bless those beautiful Millennials. This spunky bunch are on the rise to be first time home buyers. Woot! Woot! That’s good news for you too!

Lastly, what about “home equity”? Are you one of those lucky souls that bought when interests rates were under 4%? Many of us did!! If so, then you’ve been building some of the good stuff. 2019 may be a great time to cash that out.

If you’re considering 2019 to be your year. Don’t hesitate about the timing. The early spring market is the best market!!

The Power of Five

Would you rather have $1,000 or $5,000, a one-egg omelet (do they even make such a thing?) or a five-egg omelet, a one-day vacation or a five-day vacation? You get the idea.

Now, when you are selling your home or looking to make a purchase would you rather have one realtor working for you or five realtors working for you.

We work as a team because it is impossible to be everywhere at once and if one of us are not around for any reason (family emergency, vacation, illness, etc.) you still have a team member who can meet your needs.

Real estate is a fast moving business. The best properties typically don’t last long, especially when they are priced below market and when you are buying to selling in this game you need a realtor that is responsive. Or, better yet, five responsive, top-producing, award-winning realtors.

We admire individuals but we are inspired by teams. When individuals come together, make sacrifices, and give up some of their self-interests for the sake of the team we are moved (think 1980 Winter Olympics, Lake Placid, NY). At the “Up North” Team we want you to experience a great real estate transaction through our team’s commitment to you.

Whether you are looking for a getaway cabin, a retirement home, or are relocating to the beautiful Northwoods we call home our goal is to assist you in your real estate dreams.
