Retro Real Estate: Selling Houses in the Good Old Days – Washington Blade

Retro Real Estate: Selling Houses in the Good Old Days - Washington Blade

Retro Real Estate: Life in the Good Old Days

This month I am celebrating 25 years of selling real estate in the DMV.

Prior to becoming a Realtor, I had bought and sold at least a dozen homes during the previous 20 years and had lots of experience with real estate agents in my retro Real Estate days. There were those who commanded my complete attention when they spoke and those who made me think, “I can do better than this.”

When I returned to D.C. from Minnesota in 1997, unemployed, I enrolled in real estate school and quickly learned that helping others do what I had done for years involved a whole new set of skills. The process and the rules continue to evolve.

With my D.C. license in hand, followed by Maryland and Virginia licenses by the end of the year, I set up shop in my unfinished basement and joined a Century 21 franchise. A year later I moved to Prudential (now Berkshire Hathaway), where I stayed for 15 years, then to Keller Williams, and in 2017, to RLAH @properties, which I consider my final resting place.

3 Undeniable Ways a Realtor Can Help You Sell Your House in the Gayborhood

gayborhood - deposit photos

Attempting to sell a house in the gayborhood with the current real estate market conditions is tough. Interest rates remain sky-high. Many homebuyers are either priced out of the market or scared to jump in. Partnering up with a credible realtor is the best way to ensure your property will have the greatest chance of selling. However, it’s important to note that not all realtors are created equal. There are different marketing strategies that realtors use to connect you with people shopping for homes. It only takes one excited buyer to successfully sell a property in the gayborhood.

Here are 3 reliable ways that a realtor can help you sell your home located in the gayborhood.

  1. 3D Virtual Tours

3D virtual tours bring the online presence of your listing to life. Consumers – now more than ever before – shop online for nearly everything. This includes houses! Homebuyers oftentimes start their search by scrolling through listings on Zillow or Redfin. Creating a 3D virtual tour of your property enables people to become emersed in your property without having to drive there.

Naturally, this generates more potential buyers that will be interested in purchasing your home in the gayborhood. Additionally, it will weed out tire-kickers that aren’t as serious about your property. 3D virtual tours showcase the primary highlights and stunning interior features of a home. If your home in the gayborhood suffers from damages, like a bad roof, virtual tours of the interior can help show why your property is still worth buying. Realtors can use technology to their advantage to help homes sell quickly.

  1. Open House Events

Open house events help create urgency among a pool of prospective homebuyers. It makes sense, right? If you walk into a dark, vacant home that looks like buyers haven’t been through in months, there is less urgency to make an offer right then and there. However, if your realtor hosts a fun open house event, buyers will cross paths and the urgency to make an offer will arise. Plus, who doesn’t love a fun party in the gayborhood?

You can create a unique theme for your event and provide food to bring people together. Dress to impress and have fun. If you can generate a strong turnout for the open house event, buyers will start to sweeten their offers. Homebuyers oftentimes offer to pay for a portion of your closing costs once the property sells. Seller closing costs are expensive, especially if your home in the gayborhood sells for a high price. Every dollar counts when selling your home!

  1. Networking in the Community

Realtors are experts at networking within the community. You never know who you’ll meet and how you can add value to each other. Gayborhoods offer inviting communities filled with incredible people to connect with. Your realtor can strap on their walking boots and hit the pavement to help sell your home. Typically, realtors can find real estate meetups and other public events to attend. They can let everyone they meet know about your property and promote it. This strategy, tailored with an open house event, can be the exact dynamic duo you need to sell your house in the gayborhood.

If you still use Facebook, you know that there is a group for everything, from different breeds of dogs and cats to silly games that lead to data mining of your information for business or nefarious purposes, to groups that offer advice on certain medical issues, to everything real estate.

Tips to Flip a House or Renovate it For Sale

One of the Facebook groups in which I participate allows users to share do-it-yourself home improvement tips to flip a house. It’s a bit like HGTV or the DIY network, with a dose of reality thrown in.

Simple topics might include improving curb appeal, selecting paint colors, installing flooring, replacing an electrical fixture, or changing a toilet. 

Sometimes contractors weigh in on more complicated work and even give an idea of how long a project might take and how much it might cost in a particular area of the country.

How Can Buyers Fight Rising Interest Rates?

rising interest rates - deposit photos

Loan officers are projecting further increases in rates as the Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) attempts to control inflation. Basic economics tells us that more expensive credit slows spending, which, in turn, lowers prices. It can be a fine line to walk between inflation, control, and recession.

People who are seeking a conventional loan of $647,200 or less with a 20% down payment will likely receive the best 30-year fixed rate if they hold a salaried job and have a credit score of more than 740.

So, what can you do to minimize the effects of rising interest rates?

How to Fight Rising Interest Rates in Today’s Market

First, make sure your credit is squeaky clean. Consult a loan officer to get a copy of your tri-merged credit report (Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union) to avoid any surprises. Do not start paying off debt or closing credit cards without your loan officer’s input. There is such a thing as good debt where credit is concerned.
