Several recent stories show positive news in the housing market – news that everyone should pay attention to, especially if you’re considering selling your home.
One ASU expert said the Valley’s ‘tsunami’ of foreclosures is over. Recent numbers out of Mesa indicate new home builders are driving forward in the community.
Nationwide, homebuilding dipped in June. But the market in the East Valley continues to plug along, especially in the far East Valley’s communities of Mesa and Gilbert.
In Ahwatukee, like other communities in the Valley, housing prices continue to rise – driven by a shortage of homes on the market.
And interest rates keep teetering up and down a bit, threatening to go up as many real estate experts have foretold.
What does this mean? It depends on your situation, real estate experts say.
For those who have had a tough time qualifying for a mortgage, that may ease as interest rates go up. For those trying to buy a resale home, times continue to be tough. And for those willing to go into the new home market, they may find more opportunities.
It’s important to take a few steps before putting your house on the market. A clean house shows better, garners “oohs” and “ahhs” from potential buyers, and may help you get your asking price.
Professional cleaners – that’s us! – can rid the home of unwanted dust, unsightly smudges and untame odors.
