The Real Estate Upswing That Just Keeps Going / Maine Home Sales Up

Even with problems throughout the nation when it comes to selling homes, there are places where home sales are continuing to grow. Maine is one of those places, with sales rising more than three percent while sales throughout the rest of the nation went down by nearly five percent. If you’re in the market for a Maine home, the time to get one is now. As sales continue to go up, the prices for homes are also going to rise. The same is true about the interest rates. Before rates and prices go up any further, you’ll want to get into your great new Maine home.

Whether you’re looking for something that’s going to be your permanent residence or you want a vacation home to spend your downtime in, there are beautiful choices all throughout the state of Maine. Right now, prices are relatively stable throughout the area. When comparing selling prices to listing prices, many homes are selling for slightly under what they’re being listed for. That means you can probably avoid a bidding war or other problem, and that the home you’re looking at has a good chance of appraising at or near the price the seller is asking.

If you’re planning on selling your home, now is a good time to do that. Prices are rising slowly, and there are plenty of buyers looking for what you have to offer. With so many people interested in purchasing Maine homes today, it’s a sellers market. You’ll still need to make important repairs and consider things like curb appeal. Also, make sure you work with a good Realtor to price your home correctly. When you do that, you’ll have a much higher chance of making a sale quickly. Most sellers want their properties to move fast, and pricing it properly is the best way to make that happen.

No matter whether you’re buying or selling, now is among the best times to choose to make a move in the market. The right real estate agent can make all the difference for you, as well. Look for someone who will guide you and help you find just what you need. That may be a great new vacation house, or it could be a buyer for the home you’ve outgrown as your family has come along. With so many lovely places all throughout Maine, there’s definitely going to be something you’ll just love.

You might even find yourself in the position of both buyer and seller, if you have a home you want to sell but plan to purchase a different home in the area. In that case, you’ll want a Realtor who really understands the market. That way you can get the most for the home you’re selling, but you’ll also be able to get a great price on the new place you have your eye on. It can be a delicate balance when you’re selling one place and buying another, but with such a great Maine real estate market, now is the time to act.
