Spring is in the air, but it’s only a matter of time before that Texas heat kicks in. Our team is gearing up for the biggest heat wave this year; the summer real estate market. Currently, the New Braunfels Average Listing Price, according to Trulia, has been placed at $283,194 while the Median Rent Per Month is now at $1550 - which is expected to continuously rise after a sharp spike during the 2016-2017 transition. Predictions for the average listing summer prices are expected to rise at a healthy pace - but our team urges you to start considering making that move now.
Here are the 5 Selling & Buying Tips For The Summer:
Curb Appeal: The sweet advantage of Spring is the blooming bluebonnets - they’re always on home buyers’ minds. Take pictures around the yard or nearby locations. While some might not have the advantage of bluebonnets, it’s still important to manage the home’s upkeep. That means doing some grease work; cleaning out gutters, mowing the lawn, and so on.
Spring Cleaning: Chores such as dusting, cleaning the bathrooms, and vacuuming are all necessary when you put your home on the market - and really sell the interior of the property. Take control of your home’s look, consider what would look good if you were in a buyer’s shoes, and the result can be pure eye candy.
Credit Report Errors: The very first step when considering buying a home is anticipating whether or not you’ll need a loan. However, that loan will seem so far away if your credit report doesn’t look good. Get these issues resolved up front and as fast as possible so you can receive a loan.
First-Time Buyers: START NOW! 52% of buyers this year are in the demographic of the millennials. That starter home is very important to grab off the market - it’s not too late to get in on the action. Our agency highly recommends that younger buyers do consider their budget and also consider an affordable rental space.
