Sell Your Home – Home Sales Are Increasing
Home sales started increasing back in February while inventory levels remained tight. Usually, inventory reaches its low point during the winter months; however, this year, levels are below those of last year. This helped lead us into higher than expected home price increases. While home price gains are good for homeowners, it will be important for inventory to loosen in the coming months to avoid constraining home sales and driving down affordability ahead of potential for rising interest rates.
It is important to start your home buying hunt before you miss your dream home. You also don’t want to wait around and pay higher interest rates.

Selling Your Home? What Needs to Stay?
√ Landscaping – This is a big deal. The outdoor lighting should stay, as well as trees, shrubs and flowers.
√ Hardware – All the handles and knobs on your cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom must stay. If you are taking them, you need to tell the buyer and replace them before you go.
√ Built-ins – If you had custom built furniture that is part of the home such as benches or bookshelves, these should stay with the home. More than likely, the home buyer was attracted to these aspects of the home.
√ Alarm Systems – Leave the wireless alarm system. In most cases, the alarm company will install you a new one at your new home.
√ Wall mounts – If you fear that a wall mount could damage the wall when removed, just leave it. It’s better that you not ruin the wall.
√ Smoke Detectors – Smoke detectors are a must for every home. Leave your smoke detectors and buy new one for your new home if they are not already installed.
What to Take When You Sell?
√ Lawn and Patio Furniture – Feel free to take your patio and lawn furniture with you. It’s like indoor furniture, people like their own stuff.
√ Appliances – Appliances that are not installed are okay to take. Like a countertop microwave, toaster oven, washer, dryer and in most cases the refrigerator can go too.
√ Rugs and Curtains – Go ahead and take your rugs and curtains. They are considered décor items and the new buyers will not want them.
A good rule of thumb to follow when you move from your home is to take anything that is not installed into the home.
