Current Real Estate Market & How to Prepare to Sell

February 14, 2023

Kris Remiker from Century 21 Aspire Group in Manitowoc talks with Brandon Bartow and Lindsey Krause of Bartow Builders about the current market in buying and selling a home. According to Kris, the current market has not changed much since winter began. She stated that there is currently a lack of inventory and when it is on the market, it gets picked up pretty quickly. Her biggest advice before listing a home is to make sure you have a plan in place in the event that your home does sell quicker than you anticipated. Preparing to sell your home, Kris recommends decluttering your home by putting personal items into totes or boxes. She does not recommend doing much as far as adding anything new as most buyers would rather update the home with their own preferences. Buyers in this particular market are more willing to overlook things and are often ready to make a cash deal or coming in with preapproved loans. Century 21 Aspire-Manitowoc recommends having an agent to ensure you are getting the most for your home. It also allows for a sense of security with who is allowed to enter your home. Kris recommends doing research and to ask around when deciding on an agent. It has to be a good-fitting relationship for both parties involved.
