As a homeowner it can be challenging to know exactly when the right time is to list your property for sale. Consulting an experienced realtor helps considerably. Here in Southern New England, knowing the market is key to a successful and speedy sale of any property. From Massachusetts real estate to Rhode Island and Connecticut, being able to identify real estate market trends is only one of the benefits you gain when working with an experienced relator.
As the real estate market fluctuates, a good realtor knows the signs to watch for to ensure their clients get the biggest return on their property investments. On May 21, 2019 the Rhode Island Relators report regarding the April housing market in Rhode Island was released. According to this report, Rhode Island is experiencing an 8.7 percent increase in home sales activity compared to April of last year. In fact, the number of single-family home sales in Rhode Island increased 6.5 percent from 2018. Though home sales in Rhode Island show a clear incline, housing inventory is low resulting in not enough supply for home-buyer demand.
According to Dean deTonnancourt, 2019 President of the Rhode Island Association of Realtors, “Buyers are still facing a tough time getting the home they want thanks to too much competition and too few options. Homes are going under contract at a hectic pace and prices, though slowing a bit, are still on the rise. If you have a home to move to, it’s a great time to sell right now.”
Bottom line: if you’re considering selling your house in Rhode Island, now is the time to do it! Because mortgage interest rates are continuing to remain in the lower range, buyers too have the benefit of it being a great time to buy a home as well.
Tips to Sell Your Home in Rhode Island
- Choose an experienced and knowledgeable realtor. A listing agent will guide you through the rest of the home selling process, including offering tips to maximize the purchase price of your home.
- With the assistance of your listing agent you’ll find out how much your home will list for and what it’s worth on the current real estate market.
- Get your home ready to sell. You’ve got to put in the work in order to get the maximum return on your property investment. This means clean, clean, clean. Paint, fix little unfinished home projects, etc. Your listing agent can be more than helpful offering suggestions to maximize the potential of your home to prospective buyers.
- Get your home sale listing out there! Again, your experienced and knowledgeable real estate listing agent will be able to circulate and publish your online property listing, as well as host open house events and schedule showing for prospective buyers.
