A few interesting notes about the 13…

  • 13 is the number of revolutions the moon makes around the earth in a year.
  • 13 was the number of regeneration for pre-Columbian Mexicans.
  • The seals on the back of a dollar bill include 13 steps on the pyramid, 13 stars above the eagle’s head, 13 war arrows in the eagle’s claw and 13 leaves on the olive branch.

Doesn’t seem so bad now does it?

 

Think you'll need to wait till Spring to put your home on the market? Think again!

fall

True many homes are listed in the Spring, but there are some serious reasons why RIGHT NOW may be the best time to SELL a HOME!

Quality or Quantity
You want tons of people tromping through your property? Nah…you want the RIGHT people viewing your home. Many shoppers (and window shoppers) are out in the spring. But who will brave the chilly temps to see a home-SERIOUS BUYERS!

Less is MORE 
Many folks think that spring is the one and only time to market their home and thus they don’t put their home on the market in the “off ” season. In our market there is going to be limited inventory for buyers to choose from.  Which means less competition for your home.

Shorter Checkout lines
The length of time it takes from contract to closing gets longer the more transactions that are out there. Contractors can be booked solid in the spring/summer and  some needed repairs can take much longer. Not to mention the banker who are buried in paperwork for  both purchase and refinancing loan requests.  With less transactions your needs get met faster, this can save your both time and  frustration.

It’s just time for you to get what you want out of life!
You may be looking to sell for a number of reasons. But putting it off won’t make the need go away. You want to get on with the next chapter of your life and we can help you do just that. Please call 802.863.9100 for a free Market Analysis of your property and we will get you heading toward your future!

The allure of easy home ownership has many would be homebuyers asking themselves, “Is condo ownership right for me?”  To help make that decision clearer we’ve created a Pro and Con list of Condo Ownership. As always we welcome your comments.

Pros

Location: Often condominiums are available in prime downtown locations.

Security: Close by neighbors makes for peace of mind when you need to head out of town for an extended period of time. Great for the second homeowner.

Low maintenance: Let someone else do the heavy lifting (i.e. mowing and shoveling). That means your free time is really your time!

Affordability: You can find a condo at any price point, but the lower range is often within the budget of many who would not find single-family homes affordable.

Amenities: Many condos have access to a swimming pool, gym or tennis courts adding value to the purchase price.

Condominium association: Condo associations enforce bylaws, handle maintenance and repair issues, and deal with disputes with developers or between unit owners.

Cons

Limited Ownership: You only own “the paint on the walls”…not the walls themselves.When you buy a condo, you do not own the land or the structure, rather you share an interest in it.

Fees: There are most often monthly fees which will continue for as long as you own the property, even when the mortgage has been paid off.

Resale: Condos are typically more sensitive to market trends than single-family homes. If the real estate market takes a downturn, they are usually the first to suffer and the last to recover.

Rules: Condo owners have to adhere to the rules that are put forth by the association regarding use of common areas and pet ownership etc.

Condominium association: Condo associations are made up of homeowners rather than professionals. This can mean the association may be weak and inefficient. Also, renovations and rentals are subject to approval from the condo association
