If you’re a home seller in the Phoenix area, you’ll likely get top dollar for your house and sell it fast. There aren’t very many homes for sale.. and buyers are competing with each other for them… driving up prices. It’s a great time to sell in Phoenix.
But is it also a great time to sell in Sun City?
You put your home up for sale. That day you get several showings, offers come next, and before the week is over you have an accepted offer for more than asking price. Sounds like the perfect scenario for a home sale… and YES.. it’s happening on many homes in Sun City.
There may not be a better time to sell a home than right now.
Here are some numbers to show this.. In the 30 days between February 26, and March 26 of 2021, 131 homes sold. 45% of those sold for more than asking price. 30% went under contract in under 14 days.
On the prices… The average sales price in that 30 day time period was $284,621. Prices have been increasing this year and demand for homes remains high while availability of homes is low.
..So how do you take advantage of this great market and get top dollar for your home?
… There are several factors that effect a home’s value…. location, buyer demand, scarcity are some. And those are things you can’t control as a seller. But you can control the price and your property’s condition. The price should be relative to condition. So, if you want more money, improve the condition.
You don’t have to remodel your home like this….
It can be as simple as a really good cleaning. I think cleaning and de-cluttering is the most important thing you can do to improve your home. The less work a buyer has to do to the home, the more attractive it is. A clean and ready to move into home.. like this one.. is a good example. It’s not newly remodeled, but is in good condition. This home also has neutral colors which appeal to more people.
There are plenty of things you can do to fix up a home which doesn’t cost a lot of money. Lighten up your indoor space by replacing your light bulbs with brighter ones. Putting out colorful flowers in the front yard. Trim hedges and shrubs. Fix loose door knobs and replace old faucets. Those are just a few.
