Home Prices on the Rise

April 8, 2013

Back in 2007, we sold our home in Philadelphia just before the economy got dicey.  The buyer had possibly one of the last sub-prime mortgages before the recession hit and a few months later, we were thanking our lucky stars that we were able to sell our home for more than we owed.  Those were rough times for tons of homeowners, but real estate has been steadily recovering over the past couple years, and last February, we saw a 10.2% rise in home prices across the country!

In Ohio, inventory is relatively low, so now is a great time to sell your home, not to mention that moving over the summer is a lot easier for folks with kids in school. 

If you’re trying to get your home ready to put on the market, check out these tips from Home Logic to stage your house to sell! Trust me, I look at a whole lot of pictures of houses for sale, and staging is vital if you want to attract buyers.  So clean up, get rid of clutter, and paint over that “faux finish” experiment in the guest room and take advantage of this seller’s market!
