February and March were slow months for all realtors in Northern Colorado. Well, at least a little slower than the summer last year which saw record numbers jump off the chart. We were fortunate to still have a couple sales, but now that May has hit, we are seeing those record numbers again, and a bunch of bidding wars between buyers for just about every single home.
We have had a couple closings in the last couple days, and have a few more lined up for the rest of the month, and wanted to highlight some of the recent movement.
1. We just closed a cozy little bungalow in Old Town at 1008 Sycamore St. This cute little home was sold for $280,000, and is just a short walk from Old Town shopping, City Park, and Lee Martinez Park.
2. Another great home will sell tomorrow, May 10th and directly into the hands of a great family at 8075 Lighthouse Lane in Windsor, CO. This home, at over 3500 square feet, is close to Ptarmigan Country Club, Highland Meadows Park, and just a couple minutes from I-25 for easy access to Northern Colorado and Denver. We're so happy to get a great family into this fantastic home.
3. We have a house under contract after just one day on the market at 557 Clubhouse Drive in Loveland. We received a cash offer for $395,000, which is $40,000 over the most recent sale in the neighborhood. Our seller was ecstatic, and is so happy to receive such a great offer for their home.
Do you need some tips to price your home right?
We have been helping homeowners price their home right to sell for the past 15 years, and can speak with you about what we think you should sell your home for to get it moving quickly. Quite a few homeowners in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor try to over price their homes, and they sit on the market for much longer than either expected, or much longer than the homeowner needs it to.
First, consult an experienced real estate agent to have them walk through your home, and suggest any updates you might need to make. Your home might be sale ready, or it may need some minor adjustments. Having a realtor walk through your home is the absolute best thing you can do for the sake of your sale.
Second, think about how quickly you need to sell. If you are strapped for cash, and have some equity to work with, the pricing of your home will be a big decision in you selling your home fast. In the current market, you can receive multiple offers over your asking price, and you can pick and choose between buyers.
Lastly, make sure that you have a plan of attack, and consult with your realtor about what's going to happen during closing and after.
