The real estate market is value-driven
Today’s savvy home buyer watches the market like a hawk until a great deal presents itself. This is the moment when they pounce. “Everything selling has value written all over it,” according to Bill Larkin, manager of the Sotheby’s International Realty New Canaan office. Major price adjustments are yielding opportunities too compelling to pass up, even among properties that buyers in recent times have refused to consider due to location. Larkin reports that for some time, close-to-town properties have consistently been the most desirable, and these sales are still strong, yet a shift has begun to occur in Fairfield County toward homes further out as prices continue to come down.
Your property has to be turnkey
Properties presented in excellent condition sell the fastest. Recent trends show most buyers will only look at homes offered in mint, move-in ready condition. Along with pricing and condition, amenities also make a difference in desirability as well as the style of a home. Larkin indicates that a more minimal, less decorated home is more likely to appeal to today’s urban-minded home buyer.
