Have You Heard? It's Selling Season!

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 7:24 AM

Did you know that more than half of all annual home sales will take place between May and August? Before we all get busy with back-to-school and the onset of the holiday season, this window is the perfect opportunity to make a move.

Buyers have a unique opportunity to take advantage of historically low interest rates. The nightly news consistently warns us, rates will eventually tick upward as the housing market recovers. Buyers are poised to lock into these low interest loans for the 2014 selling season.

Price it right, right now. It is imperative you consider recently sold homes to gauge fair market value. The more recent the sale of the comparable home, the more accurately you can estimate a price that will attract buyers while also yielding the highest fair market value. If you price your home too high with the idea you‘ll just lower it if no offers come in, you are wasting valuable selling season time. Do the math: Selling season is just over 120 days. It customarily takes anywhere from 45-60 days, from the initial offer to closing day. That leaves little time for unnecessary price corrections.  

Don’t wait to de-clutter, do some extra cleaning and ramp up the curb appeal before you list your home. Think of it as “pre-packing.” Box up non-essentials and items crowding your closets and bring them to a storage facility for a few months. Your home will show better and there will be less preparation when it’s time to move.

Access is imperative. Homes that require excessive lead time will be shown less, limiting your pool of potential buyers. Sit down with your agent and strike a plan to make your home as easy to show, as possible. A little sacrifice of freedom and privacy will go a long way.

Don't forget the internet! The overwhelming majority of real estate searches begin online. Make sure your agent is making the most of this critical venue and provides links for you to share with your own family, friends, business associates and social network.

The selling season is short. Sellers who list their accurately priced, de-cluttered, clean and easy-to-see home now, have the next three months to make the most of this fruitful real estate season.

Clean it out.

Dust it up.

Price it right.

List it now.

Show it off.

BEIJING, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Prices of copper on Friday
were set to register a quarterly drop as macro bearishness outweighed supply tightness,
while higher-than-expected China factory data raised
hopes of better demand from world's biggest metal consumer.

Benchmark copper price stood at $7,626.50 a tonne by 0835 GMT, having lost 8.4% since June 30, pressured down by dollar strength amid

Federal Reserve's interest rate hikes, and as China grappled with a COVID-19-induced

The most-traded November copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange
closed at 61,320 yuan ($8,642.58) a tonne on Friday, down 2.2% quarterly.

China's factory activity unexpectedly expanded in September, returning to growth after two consecutive months of contraction and casting some hopes
on demand in the last quarter.

The official manufacturing Purchasing Managers'
Index (PMI) edged up to 50.1 in September,
from 49.4 in August, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed.

"The improved data buoyed market confidence," said a
Chinese copper tube producer source who anticipated rising demand and tight
inventories to remain in the upcoming month.

Copper inventories in warehouses monitored by ShFE fell to
30,459 tonnes on Friday, the lowest since Jan.21 and down 54.3% from 66,
661 tonnes on Jul.1.

Supply concerns of other metals such as aluminium and zinc persisted throughout the third quarter as
European producers decided to cut their production on soaring energy costs.

A possible ban of Russian metal including nickel, aluminium and copper
to be delivered to LME further exacerbated supply worries.

ShFE aluminium advanced 1.7% to 18,270 yuan a tonne on Friday, nickel was
up 2.1% to 184,370 yuan a tonne, zinc held at 23,670 yuan a
tonne, while tin lost 1.8% to 177,210 yuan a tonne.

LME aluminium was up 1.4% at $2,228.50 a tonne and zinc rose 3.1% to $3,
021 a tonne, while nickel gained 0.9% to $22,550 a tonne.
