Should You Buy a Home if a Recession Hits?
Between the coronavirus pandemic, the shutdown of nonessential businesses and a plummeting stock market, buyers and sellers wonder: Are we headed for a recession? Anyone who had a goal of buying in 2020 would probably like to know if now is a good time to buy before committing to a major, long-term purchase. Similarly, anyone planning to sell their home in 2020 would like to know; should they sell now or weather the storm. Then the question is, if they wait, will their home value be affected?
To set the stage for the below information, it is important to note that a Recession is not necessarily a positive for any industry. Yes, some can weather a recession better than others, such as essential goods and services as opposed to businesses that are reliant on consumer discretionary income. With that said, real estate tends to fall into the latter; people will always need to buy, sell, their homes. Whether an economic recession or ; ...

Should You List Now Or Wait for the Spring Selling Season?
Conventional thinking says wait until the warmer months to put your house on the market. Here are a few reasons to rethink that idea.
Many homeowners reach out to their real estate agent at the beginning of the year to consider their sale options — typically for the spring. Starting that conversation sooner than later is a good thing so that you and your agent can come up with a punch list of items to fix that need attention, if needed. Our team can get a listing live on the market within a few days from staging, to professional photos, and getting the listing live on the market. However, depending on the condition of the home, it can take a few weeks for the seller to fix those items and prep the home for showings.
Over the years, we ask sellers if they would consider listing their home in January, right after the first of the year. Their reaction is always, “who sem ...

Sure, selling a home own your own may sound like a great idea, you think you may save some money... but besides the time and stress that goes into taking on this daunting task, there are other problems that arise when listing a home "For Sale By Owner" (FSBO).
Our listing specialist at the Hardy Real Estate Group, Terry Scollin has highlighted some of the most common problems he heard of after home sellers came to him to list their home when it failed to sell FSBO.
1) Scams in the Market Place - Fraud is out there! As much as we feel sheltered to it with a "that will never happen to me" mindset, it is real and it is there. From fraudulent paperwork, to foreign deposit checks and distribution of personal information to faulty third-parties, scammers are hungry and will do anything to earn extra cash.
2) Liability for the Seller - We all make mistakes and that is okay, sometimes. When it is not okay is when a FSBO gets caught in the middle of a stickm ...
