Chesterfield Real Estate News

ST LOUIS METRO AREA IS A GREAT VALUE! Why, because the median home sale price is at $151,900 and there are great choices in regard to places to live. Yes the market is tight right now for buyers but that will loosen up as we come into the spring and more homes come on the market. What a buyer wants just as much as price choices is location choices. St Louis has it all when it comes to buyer choices. You have the city living with homes and lofts and condos with easy access to downtown amenities. Then you can go south or north and each of those areas offer unique and convenient housing choices that are close to schools and amenities. If you want to be in the county there is also a great diversity in St Louis ranging from old town areas such as Ferguson and Florissant to areas like Southtown, Bevo and Dogtown. If your desire is to head out with a bit more open space you can head to the Mehlville/Oakville area or Ballwin, Chesterfield or Wildwood where the lots may be a bit larger and you have a bit more open space. All of these locations offer a wide range of prices that can fit many of budgets. Call me anytime as I have been working the St Louis area for over 30 years. Thank you.

5 WAYS TO GET YOUR HOME READY TO SELL.......

Younger buyers are pushing the St Louis market higher. They are well qualified, dual income buyers that want a few things in a home that will determine their decision. 

1. TECHNOLOGY  - the young buyers want to make sure the home is WiFi capable, economically efficient and has modern appliances. 

2. LOCATION - as always this plays a big part in the sale but the young buyer likes to walk to get coffee or meet friends at the local bar or restaurant. They also like great schools. 

3. OPEN SPACE - is important on the interior like big kitchens that flow into the family room for entertaining.

4. UPDATED KITCHEN and BATHS - Most younger couples both work. SO having these items done lets them save time and cash once they move in. 

5. HOME OFFICE - many younger buyers in St Louis and St Louis County seek a home office. Many companies allow their employees to work at home and this is a big plus for those that spend more time working at home. 

Keep these in mind when buying a home and or selling a home. Call me anytime for help with either. 

Thanks

Happy New Year !!

It is going to be a great year and here is how you can make your home sale and or purchase work well for you in 2018. The market will be great for sellers and buyers but you must prepare.  Here is what you can do to make sure you are ready. 

Selling your home 

1. Clean out old Clutter now so your home appears larger and cleaner. 
2. Paint now so you neutralize colors and get rid of that old wallpaper. 
3. Call an experienced agent now to walk through your home to stage it, determine a price range and set a timeline to maximize your marketing. 

Buying a home

1. Determine what type of home you want and where you want to live. 
2. Meet with a lender that your agent refers to you so that you are ready with a pre-approval letter in hand when you make an offer. 
3. Meet with an experienced agent to get set up in the MLS system, get up to date listings instantly and develop a plan so that you are ready when the perfect home comes on the market. 

Prepare now to sell or buy and it will help you maximize your sale or purchase and make things much easier going into the selling season.

Many people think that their home will not sell if they have a pool. Often times a buyer may think they do not want to purchase a home with a pool due to fear of not being able to resell. This is far from the fact and most homes I list with pools sell quickly. Why? Because there are a limited number of homes with pools. There are buyers out there that love pools and although there are few of these buyers, they have limited choices. So remember, do not fear the pool the homes with pools sell well !! 

CHECK OUT 16751 Babler View a great home with a great pool !!

ALSO CHECK OUT 326 Turnberry Place Dr also with a pool !!
