Selling This Spring

Are you considering selling your home this spring? As we head into the year's busiest real estate season, ensuring that your home is in its best condition will help attract maximum interest. Here are some tried and true steps to follow:

Put your house on a diet. Give consideration to the appeal of a tidy and organized house and begin removing or donating both the things that clutter your home and the things you don't want to move with you.

Well its Feb.25 and the Prince George Real Estate Market is still very busy. Especially under $250,000. The main drive is we have 3 groups of people wanting homes under $250,000 and that is #1 is '1st time buyers' #2 is people moving down (down sizing)#3 is 'Investors' as they can still get a equal or positive cashflow on rent.

If you would like a specific question answered just post a question to this blog or visit www.DeanBirks.com and send me a message.

Have a great day.
