Are you ready to buy or sell a home in Northern New Jersey this spring? Spring is definitely one of the best times of the year for the New Jersey real estate market. Here are a few things to keep in mind as the spring real estate season approaches.

Buyers

If you plan on buying a home in Northern New Jersey in spring, then make sure you have as much ready now as you can. For example, make sure you’ve set a budget for what you can afford each month, including home maintenance costs. Get pre-approved for a home loan. We’ll work with you to make sure everything is in order so that the buying process will go as quickly as possible.

Sellers

Make sure you have your home ready to sell before you list it. You only get one first impression, so make sure your home looks its best. You may have to spend some money up front, but it will help your home sell faster and for more money in the end. Even little things like cleaning out the clutter, a fresh coat of paint, or new carpets can make a huge impact. And check your curb appeal. Clean up the yard, trim the hedges, power wash the driveway and porch. Everything makes a difference.

And don’t overprice your home. If you do, you can lose out on the best buyers. Don’t be afraid to price too low. In a competitive market you may get multiple bidders.
