Greenville House Value Greenville SC Real Estate 864.334.8690

Home values are on the rise! In our Greenville, SC real estate market we are seeing prices go up on a regular basis, which is great news for sellers. In 2013, our local market saw a 3% rise in average purchase price from 2012.  Our inventory has fallen from nearly 9 months of supply to below 7 months as of February 2014. This really is an incredible time to sell your home in the Upstate. If you are interested in selling, contact the Ashley Lewis Team today!

If you haven’t checked on the value of your home recently you should. There are several sites that will give you an instant analysis of your home based on algorithms. Brian Hardyman, Listing Specialist for the Ashley Lewis team says, “I wouldn’t trust an automated value as the final end all to what your home is worth. I would instead focus on finding a professional who knows the market and can do the research.” To find out your market value we determine what a qualified and ready buyer is willing to pay. This takes several steps beyond putting a sign in the yard. I always recommend having an agent and an appraiser help you understanding the value of your Greenville, SC home. greenville house value

Keep in mind, I personally wouldn’t trust the online sources exclusively as they simply are plugging you into a system and telling you a price; whereas a professional does much more than merely crunch numbers. You might be asking what does a professional offer that these sites do not? Glad you asked…

Greenville House Value

By calling a  listing specialists or an appraiser, you will…

1. Get the accurate square footage. It is uncommon for tax records to be correct. Square footage is crucial to understanding the value of your home!

2. Get a professional to look at the condition of the home, upgrades of the home, additions on the exterior or yard, etc. An online algorithm simply can’t do ANY of those.

3. Get an understanding of current trends to determine price. This could be something as simple as neighborhood conditions, school rezoning, and so much more.

4. Find out what what you can do to increase the value of your home. A website can’t do that.

In a time where we are all plugged into the digital world, we have to remember that no website can replace the value of a local professional in determining your Greenville, SC home value.

We’d love for you to fill out our form on Greenville House Value. It will go directly to our listing department at the Ashley Lewis Team. You won’t get an instant valuation because we want to personally pull the information and compare it with our local market conditions and provide an analysis for you. We typically get those back to you within a 48 hours.

94% of all buyers begin their search online.

Buyers search by Bedrooms, Bathrooms, and PRICE, to list a few. An experienced agent will help you decide the search criteria for your home.

Listing Vacant Home

If your home is vacant there are a few things to consider: insurance, staging, securing, and maintaining.  Homeowner’s policies could change if you no longer live in the home. It is important for you to let your insurance company know you will be moving out, because they will advise you on what precautions to take before leaving your home. Staging a home is wise because it gives the impression the home is not necessarily vacant, gives the home some warmth and life, and rooms always look smaller if there is not furniture placed in the room.  Another thing to consider is securing your home. If your home is vacant and people learn no one is living in the home you could run the risk of someone trying to live in your home or vandalize it.  Finally, you still need to maintain your home: lawn maintenance, cleaning, checking on water pipes, etc. These are items that the Ashley Lewis Team in Greenville, SC can help a homeowner with by scheduling companies to come out to maintain the home.

So when you sell your vacant home in Greenville, SC, choose the Ashley Lewis Team at Keller Williams to list your property!

Going Green in Greenville SC Real Estate 864.334.8690

Going Green Greenville

In general, ‘going green’ is a hot topic; going green in Greenville is no exception! Buyers are looking for homes that are energy efficient. The main three areas they are most concerned with are: double-pane windows, insulation, and an efficient heating and cooling system.

  1. Double-pane windows help keep the two opposing temperatures from mingling.
  2. Insulation is vital to keep the warm or cool air inside your house without having it escape through various places. Proper insulation in the attic and walls will help keep the inside temperature in and the outside temperature out!
  3. Heating and cooling systems need to provide good service, but they should not waste energy in the process. The newer systems are geared toward conserving energy. Older systems might need some updating.

First Impression Should be Impressive Greenville SC Home 864.334.8690.

Curb appeal plays a vital role in selling your home. Yes, it’s the first impression and first impressions are important! In the Greenville, SC real estate market there are plenty of fixer-upper homes that don’t have curb appeal, but those homes will not necessarily attract buyers willing to pay full-value. If your goal is to get the most return on your investment, then you should improve the curb appeal of your home. Putting effort into curb appeal not only brings a higher price point, but also brings a faster sale. KW research shows that sellers who enhanced their curb appeal sold their homes an average of 7 days faster than those who did not.

More First Impression Home-Selling Tips

Curb appeal may be the first and only aspect of your home that gets a buyer’s attention. Many buyers today spend hours shopping for houses online. They are likely using websites designed to narrow their search to reveal houses only in a particular price range, or location, etc., but even then, there are probably hundreds of images and homes that come dancing across their computer screens. If each home has just one image that pops up in that original search, what is likely to be featured in that one picture? The outside of the home. That’s right. The outside of your home may be the factor determining if someone decides to click to see more about your home, or moves on to another home without giving yours a second thought.

What will make them stop and consider your home? What will make your home stand out among the flood of houses in the Greenville, SC real estate market? How will that first picture capture someone’s attention? Curb appeal. Of course curb appeal is not the only factor that may attract a buyer to your home, but it is a big factor, especially in today’s market that is driven by online searches. The listing department of the Ashley Lewis Team would love to help advise you on how to enhance your curb appeal. Watch this short video for a visual explanation.

Curb appeal encompasses everything from the house itself to the property around it. For instance, you may have the most delightful home, but if it is hidden behind large bushes or trees, no one will ever see your home! A good first step in improving curb appeal is to trim back or replace surrounding greenery so that you home appears in good light. Buyer’s are not looking for an overgrown jungle dwelling! Your home should have exterior wall and roof space that is free to stand in the sunlight. Greenery and flowers around your home are appropriate and good, but they should not cover windows or large wall spaces. On the contrary, they should provide accents that draw attention to the nice features of your home, such as the porch, or the front door. Once the landscaping against the house is in order and the house is nicely visible, turn your attention to improving what you can see of the house. Does the front door need to be repainted? Do the siding and windows need to be cleaned? Do the gutters need to be replaced? Once the house itself is looking presentable, broaden your focus and begin fixing up the yard and landscaping so that your property looks good all the way to the road. Plant some grass in bare spots, put new mulch down, add a flower bed around a prominent tree, put in a new mailbox, etc.

There are many simple improvements that you can make to your home and property to enhance the curb appeal. Your efforts will not be in vain in the Greenville, SC real estate market. Get the most money for your house. Sell it faster. Start with curb appeal!

Determining Home Inventory in the Greenville SC Real Estate Market 864.334.8690

Home Inventory Greenville: Determining Home Inventory in the Greenville SC Real Estate Market 864.334.8690

How can you benefit from knowing about the homes that are currently on the market in your area? Current home inventory can be a deciding factor to determine the price you choose to list your home. It will also give you an idea of how long may take to sell.

Supply and demand tells us the fewer the homes for sale, means higher prices for what is available. When there is higher demand, agents find multiple offers situations that drive the prices above the listing price.

The opposite is true when the market is flooded with homes. Prices tend to be lower and there is more competition among sellers because of the abundance of listings.

Knowing the home inventory of your neighboring area will give you an advantage!

This could help you determine when to put your home on the market.  A seller’s market is when buyers are buying, inventory is low and prices are high.

A buyer’s market exists when the inventory is plentiful. Buyers negotiate for lower prices or upgrades and home values tend to be lower. Buyers don’t have to settle, they can get exactly what they are looking for and more!

Please watch this brief video on Home Inventory in the Greenville, SC real estate market.

Unlock Your Home Equity in Greenville SC Real Estate 864.334.8690

Unlock your home equity… Your home is one of the best investments you will ever make. Land and property have historically been good investments. There are times when prices will fluctuate in the upward or downward scale but all in all, values on property rise. Your home holds value right now.

Would you like to unlock your home equity to purchase another home?  Maybe your needs or desires have changed in what you want in a house. What about unlocking the value to retire on? That could mean some real spending money right away. Many retirees downsize to have lower expenses and to have less house to be concerned with.

Your home equity begins to build after the first few mortgage payments. Home equity is the difference between your unpaid mortgage balance and market value. Market Value is the highest price a willing buyer would pay and a willing seller would accept, both being fully informed, and the property being exposed for sale for a reasonable period of time. Even when the market is not bringing the price a home would be bringing in a normal or growing market, there can still be growth in equity over time. Property is the one investment that holds it’s value.

Learn more about how to unlock your home equity, and please watch this brief, but informative video.

Should I Sell My House Greenville South Carolina

Should I Sell My House? Greenville SC Real Estate 864.334.8690

Should I Sell My House Greenville South Carolina“Should I sell my house?,”  you might wonder. Most Americans today cannot afford to take risks. All the fretting over the economy in recent years has led to an increasing sense of wariness among Americans. As a result of this, many people are increasingly cautious when dealing with their assets. This has led to a number of homeowners in the Upstate asking the question: “Should I sell my house?” and “If yes, why?”.

The truth is there are a number of things to consider when making this decision. Not all areas of the United States are sellers markets, but Greenville, SC is.

Things to Consider When Wondering ‘Should I Sell My House?’

• Greenville’s economic climate is extremely healthy and the people who live here are confident about the future of the city.

Greenville is home to a bustling economy stimulated by a number of thriving companies that call the beautiful upstate area home. Some of these companies include: Michelin, BMW, and Hubbell Lighting. As a result of Greenville’s economy, more people are coming into the city which increases the demand for homes. Increasing demand leads to higher prices for homes and a decreased amount of time on the market.

• Mortgage Interest Rates are still low!

Low mortgage rates are important to sellers because it allows buyers to finance larger mortgages. When buyers get lower rates, they can afford to pay a higher price for their home. This increases the likelihood of your house being sold!

• Prices are up 6% from last year.

Not only are rising prices good for the seller, the fact that they have increased over the last year shows that people are willing to pay increasingly higher prices to move into the area. This is a testament to the economic future of Greenville and the confident outlook people have about the city.

• Greenville is an especially attractive area to relocate to.

People look for a number of qualities when searching for a city to relocate to. Greenville has many, if not all, of those qualities. Our public school system, temperate climate, economic growth, and proximity to major cities like Atlanta and Charlotte are all things that make Greenville a desirable place to live. The city has a beautiful downtown area, extremely well kept parks and a vibrant artist community.

As previously mentioned, there are also a number of businesses in the area that will provide job opportunities for people looking to relocate. All these things make it more likely that your home will be sold. As you can see, Greenville has many of the conditions to be considered a seller’s market. Demand is still rising for homes in Greenville without a clear end in sight. So if you live in Greenville and are thinking of putting your home on the market, there is no better time than now!
