This Spring 2021 market is the strongest seller-driven market.Homes in fair condition (and reasonably priced), are typically receiving:-Multiple Offers (in some cases 15 - 20 offers) (that is not a typo...there are just so few homes on the market for buyers to choose from, especially in the mid and lower price ranges.) -"Appraisal Gap" Coverage in Cash-Most homes selling 6-12% over list price-Increased Earnest Money-Seller Dictating Extended Closing Dates-Waived or Reduced Buyer InspectionsThis has become the "new normal", at least with the the current market cycle...as the forecast below suggests, it appears that this year will likely set another record with historically low interest rates, number of homes sold, and record high prices. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL REPORT

Cleaning and more cleaning and make sure your home smells clean! (Almost as important) Consider an initial "pre-list" professional cleaner coming in for your floors and carpets, as it sets the "condition" bar for your highest buyer interest. More econo: Wiping down all your walls, shelves, trim, doors, and cabinets with frequently refreshed warm water and a little vinegar is a classic and inexpensive technique. (You can even swish around a little bit of Lysol/Pine Sol in water in the toilet or a little lemon grinding in the garbage disposal before showings or Open Houses)  Remove clutter on the floors, even the floors of the closets. Clutter will make a room appear to be smaller than it really is. Buy some totes and use them. Well worth the money. Straighten bookcases and dust around a...

You have two choices to make: Remodel your house to fit your current lifestyle and needs Sell your house and purchase the perfect home Based on the record of dollars spent on remodeling and renovations, it appears that many homeowners are deciding on number one. But, is that the best long-term solution? If you currently live in a 3-4-bedroom home, you probably bought it at a time when your children were the major consideration in determining family housing needs.

Currently,  the Multiple Listing Service in the Twin Cities reports there are only six Townhomes for sale in Chanhassen for under $300,000. This is certainly a record setting lack of listings. What does that mean for the average seller, they should take advantage of this low inventory and get their Chanhassen Townhome on the market immediately. Click HERE to see the current available Chanhassen inventory      Stieg Strand Broker/Realtor, RE/MAX Results Tel: 952.942.4750 | Mobile: 612.490.2121 stieg@results.net | www.mnhomereports.com          Fast way to find out how much ANY home is really worth?
