Rising Home Prices Show Now Is the Time to Move

by Glenda Daughety & Team

If you've been thinking about selling your home, maybe now is the time to pick up the pace.  Across the country, home prices are on the rise.  According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), in Louisiana, home prices are up by 4.4%.  This is right about in the middle of the rate of other states in the nation.  So if you plan on moving to another state, you may end up with an advantage. 

The map below shows the rate at which home prices are appreciating by state.  In general, if you wait to sell or buy, you could end up paying more.

How to Sell Your Home to the Younger Buyers

by Glenda Daughety & Team

​It makes sense that when you sell your home, it will no doubt be to someone younger.  It's been getting easier for young families and professionals to buy a home.  So when it comes to staging your home, you need to keep the younger buyers in mind.  How can you make your home appeal to this growing market?  Here's a few tips.

Use Neutral Colors

Buyers under 40 are not really into the gold or pink walls any more.  Think about painting the walls a more neutral color.  This will allow potential buyers to envision their own accent colors and furniture to make it their own.

Open Up the Shower

Open showers are all the rage. Younger buyers aren't as attracted to the old tub and shower configuration. If you have it in your budget, consider remodeling your bath to include an open shower design.

White Cabinets

White or off-white cabinets not only brighten up the kitchen, but the younger buyers are more attracted to it.  They don't want to be reminded of mom's old dark cabinets.  You might try Benjamin Moore's Advance paint, as it requires little prep work.

Stainless Steel Appliances

Old appliances can be a big turnoff for younger buyers.  Many love stainless steel appliances, and for good reason.  If you have it in your budget, consider updating your appliances if they look dated.

Updated Countertops

Young buyers really love granite and stone countertops.  But keep it simple.  Don;t go with busy designs.  Black countertops or designs that are simple are the best.
