A New Year – A New Look at Your Real Estate Portfolio
If you’re currently a homeowner, or even plan on being one soon, it is an excellent idea to contact your Realtor and ask for a Real Estate Review. That’s what I call it anyway.
Basically, just ask them some questions about the market you are in.
What is the current market value sales price of home in your neighborhood (or desired neighborhood)? How has it changed in the past 6 months? What are the trends?
A diligent realtor will be able to give you all this information and more.
Often, when I am reviewing peoples’ current properties for them, I will notice they do not have certain tax exemptions, and that can save you money. A significant amount of money depending on the exemption. And as a Realtor, my goal is to help people with their home buying and selling needs. Sometimes, that means just getting a fresh look at the current market and how your home stacks up. Knowledge is power, after all.
The more you know about your home, even if you aren’t ready to sell or buy quite yet, the more prepared you will be when the time comes.
So, call your agent (or me if you need one) and ask them questions. Trust me, we are happy to help. J
