How Can You Take Advantage of Trussville Real Estate?

Today I’ll be updating you briefly on the state of the Trussville real estate market. The question that we’re seeing a lot of is whether this market is catering to buyers or sellers. This really depends on your price point and the condition of your home. Overall, we’re seeing a little bit of both from everyone.

We have found that sellers who are pricing their homes too high are sitting on the market much longer. Homes that are priced well and in good condition are selling very quickly right now. This is partially due to the low inventory that we’re seeing all around town.

Because of this low inventory, we are seeing home prices rising around Trussville. This is leaving a lot of people pleasantly surprised by the value that their home is worth when it sells. However, you will need to sell quickly in order to capitalize on these market conditions.

Interest rates are also still very low and favorable to buyers. They are in the low 4% range, and this will allow you to save thousands of dollars worth of interest payments over the lifetime of your loan. 

If you are thinking of buying or selling a home in the surrounding areas, there are a lot of great opportunities in this area. If you’re renting, you can own a home for less money per month. It’s simply a great time to get involved in the real estate market.

We look forward to helping you when you decide to buy or sell!

How Professional Photography Sells Trussville Homes

When selling your home, do you really need a professional photographer? I would say the answer is absolutely yes! 

Our team started using professional photography three years ago and we were amazed at the difference. The purpose of these photos is to get people to come see your home. The majority of our clients identify the homes they want to see on the Internet using sites like Zillow, Trulia, or Realtor.com. 

Homes that do not have intriguing or high-quality photographs tend to get skipped over. It’s very important to hire a real estate photographer who not only takes good pictures, but also knows the kind of photos that will appeal to buyers. 

As a buyer’s agent, my role is to show homes. A lot of times, I’ll hear a client say, “This home looks much better than it did online.” On the listing side, we’ve taken over listings that sat on the market and expired. Part of our process is taking professional pictures, so when we take over these listings, they sell. We also stage the home so it looks amazing in the photographs.
