Advice to Sellers:

School is out and the traditional prime home selling and home buying season is in full swing.  While there are more homes available for sale at May month end than previously throughout the year, a seller needs to be prepared for the Denver home market.

A seller’s home is unique and each and every prospective home buyer is unique.  With that being said, as a seller, have you done everything needed to prepare your home for being on the market and selling during this prime season?

Will your home create that lasting impression?  Are you current on the preventative maintenance items needed for your home?  Have you de-cluttered your home?  To maximize the selling price, have you done recent upgrades?  Since selling a home is not an everyday activity, a seller needs to look to a professional for assistance for these and other questions.

Advice to Buyers:

School is out and the traditional prime home selling and home buying season is in full swing.  While there are more homes available for sale at May month end, other factors have an impact on the market.  Interest rates are rising and new mortgage guidelines have been implemented.

Know what you want in a home, where you want to live, and what price range you can afford.
Complete the pre-qualification process so you know the price range that you qualify for when you are purchasing a home.  Be prepared for the speed of the market and manage your expectations in order to timely participate in the Denver home buying market.
