Supply is down and demand is up in our market this September.

  

Every year around September, the market tends to get a little sleepy, but is this still true for the market in 2019?

At the moment, it is for sellers. Over the first three weeks of August, inventory dropped 9.9%. In other words, one out of every 10 homes a buyer could choose from last month isn’t there anymore. Sellers aren’t bringing as many properties to the market, and I know exactly why. For one thing, they assume the buyers who weren’t able to move before the start of the school year are gone.

If you’re a seller and you don’t price your home correctly to begin with, you might end up having to reduce its price and accept a lower offer.

  

We’re joined today by Lauren Younga, one of our awesome agents, to give a quick word of advice to sellers out there. First, price your home right to begin with. Don’t price it high when you put it on the market.

We’ve seen a lot of price reductions from home sellers lately, and those sellers are getting offers that are lower than what they would’ve gotten if they had priced their home correctly to begin with.

Landscaping ChangesIf you’re looking to sell your home, you might be wondering how you can increase its resale value without having to spend a ton of money. Simple landscaping updates can help increase your home’s value by up to ten percent or more, and they’re often easy to complete or hire out.

1. Design with purpose

Make sure your home’s landscaping meshes well with your home’s overall style and vibe. For example, a Victorian home should be landscaped with classic country styles, such as English gardens and rose bushes.
