From an April 13 2013 article in the Richmond Times Dispatch:
Home sales and prices rose in central Virginia and across the state in the first three months of the year, according to reports released Tuesday by the Richmond Association of Realtors and the Virginia Association of Realtors. The positive report comes at the start of the spring buying market, and the outlook for the rest of the year looks promising, with local, state and national housing markets showing evidence of a sustained recovery, according to the reports. “Without question, the housing market is improving,” said Bill White, president of Joyner Fine Properties in Richmond. “We are keeping our fingers crossed and hoping it is sustainable.”
This is good news for home sellers. The article goes on to say:
“In some areas, we have an inventory problem,” White said about the Richmond area, noting a shortage of houses on the market to meet demand. “We’re beginning to see a few multiple offers, and some houses are selling in the first couple of days on the market.” Sales in central Virginia have risen year over year for seven consecutive quarters.
If you are thinking about selling your house this spring, you might be able to get top dollar for it if you fix it up and make it shine among the competing houses for sale.
What if your house is out of date?
The other day, a house seller called me. Their kitchen is 20 years out of date. The last paint work in the house was 10 years ago. Their flooring was worn
- Scratches in the hardwood
- Ripped vinyl
- Cracked tiles
Windows has broken seals, causing moisture to get in there. The outside needed landscaping to re-reveal the house to the street. If your house is ugly, you could easily spend 20 thousand making these basic repairs to bring it up to full market value. But, if you don’t want to mess with that kind of renovation work, I’ll buy your house as is for cash at a price that considers the renovations that are needed.
