Caseys North San Diego Market Update - January 2023

Hello friends and Happy New Year!

This year, maybe more than ever, it is critical to hire a professional and get started early if you are considering selling your home. It’s important to understand how the market has changed and what that means for you. The best way to make sure you’re in the know is to work with a trusted and active housing market expert. This is not the time to call a new or inexperienced agent - you need a Real Estate Advisor like myself.

A Real Estate Advisor Is an Expert on Market Trends. I follow the latest information about local AND national trends. More importantly, I have the experience to help interpret the information and to help you make a decision based on trustworthy, data-bound information.

A Real Estate Advisor Sets the Right Price for Your Home. Home price appreciation has moderated this year. If you sell your house with an inexperienced agent, you may be more likely to price your home improperly because you are not aware of where prices are and where they are headed, thus running the risk of deterring buyers or seeing your house sit on the market longer.

A Real Estate Advisor Helps Maximize Your Pool of Buyers. Since buyer demand has cooled substantially, you will need to do all you can to help bring in more buyers. I have a large variety of tools at my disposal through myself and through Coldwell Banker Realty, such as social media, agency resources and extensive marketing to ensure your home gets in front of people who are looking to make a purchase.

A Trusted Advisor is a Skilled Negotiator. In today’s market, buyers are also regaining some negotiation power as bidding wars ease. If you sell without an experienced professional, you, or the agent you hire are ill equipped to handle that negotiation. I see it all the time, inexperienced agents giving in on negotiation because they don’t have the knowledge or skills to stand firm for their clients when appropriate.

If you or someone you know is thinking about selling, please give me a call. In a few short minutes, I will get straight to the point and show you what you can do to maximize the full value of your home. If you have any questions about the value of your home, or the real estate market in general, I am more than happy to chat with you.

Please call or text 760-330-3616 to connect!
