She readily fell in love with the art of matching homes with buyers and sellers. Nikki’s fondness for people inspires her to go above and beyond the expectations of her clients. Her main objective is making others happy and that is why real estate has become more than a profession­–it’s a passion.

Is Now The Time to Sell?

Have you been thinking about selling home? Is your current property too large? Too small? Too expensive? Too hard to manage? Are you ready to travel more? Whatever the reason, you’ve been thinking about a move, but you don’t know if it’s the right time to move?

This might be the right time to sell! The first step in making a good decision is information. You would be amazed how many people will use stories they heard at the grocery store to make the decision to sell a home. Before you make any decision, speak to a professional agent and talk about your local market and home values. Learn about the inventory levels of your neighborhood and get a comprehensive market analysis of your property.

Traditionally a great time to list a home, this spring selling season is seeing a low inventory of homes for sale. This means that the home values are stronger than they have been in the past. You might have more money sitting in your home than you expect.

As interest rates continue to tick up, many buyers are seeing this as a great opportunity to buy before it’s too late. With record low unemployment and changing tax laws, more and more buyers are entering the housing market. This has resulted in strong home values and with more buyers ready to find a new home, this might be the perfect time to sell your home as well.

Don’t forget you can always call me for even more ideas and tips!
