3 Things Your Real Estate Agent can do to help you stay informed on the local real estate market in 2019

Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

If you want to be able to make informed decisions in 2019 about real estate whether you are buying, selling or just contemplating, here are some tasks you should have your agent do.

Idaho Home Values

  1. Keep an eye on your neighborhood
    Even if you are not planning any changes, you should be aware of what homes are for sale in your neighborhood and what the prices are. Have your agent set up a search so you receive automatic alerts. This is a great way to not only know your neighborhood but also makes for great conversations between neighbors. More importantly, in the process of building wealth, this can be important.
     
  2. Keep an eye on your dream home
    Even if you are not in the market, it is fun to look! Another automatic update you should start receiving is alerts for homes that just come on the market that match your criteria. You can make the search as narrow as you would like. It can be a specific neighborhood, specific area or narrowly defined search criteria. You never know when that home may appear and even though you are 'not in the market' what if you found that perfect home?
     
  3. Make Your Home look like it's worth every penny
    If you are even considering moving, know now what it is going to take to make your home worth every penny you can. If you know now, you have time, or can make the time, to get your house ready.  Do you need to repair or replace things in the house? Does a room need a fresh coat of paint or updated a color? Spring is coming and flowers will add a lot of color. What needs to happen so you can get the most money for your house. Sometimes it may not require purchasing something, it may just be better for the next owner to choose something that matches their taste. For example, if the carpet needs to be replaced, will you get a return on your investment for replacing it or should you just simply let the next owner choose their own?
