Bakersfield Association of Realtors provides data that clearly shows that now is the time to list your home for sale, but how much should you charge?
You can always call Jared at Watson realty for quick answers, but if you wish to see the data, read further. The more you read, the more you will see that the best time to sell in 2020 is now.
Prices Hold Steady at an average between $130/sqft and $140/sqft.
In other areas of Bakersfield, prices are not nearly as stable. Bakersfield 93306 shows a lot of strength in home values. This means that you can more easily set a price for your home when you attempt to sell it.
Buyer’s need more options in Bakersfield 93306, which means that your home will get a lot of attention.
There are only 45 houses available for home buyers shopping in 93306. If buyers are purchasing 30 houses every months, you can clearly see that they don’t have many options to pick from. What this means is that you should not worry about making extensive repairs. Buyers need homes to purchase now, so list your home as it is today.
Inventory is extraordinarily low, which means there is plenty of demand for new listings.
Another way that we review the market is inventory. If you (and many others) don’t list your homes for sale, then buyers will have no homes to buy in as little as 1.7 months. What this means for you is that buyers don’t have other options, which puts you in control during negotiations. We call this a “seller’s market.”
How to advertise your home for best effect
When inventory is as low as 1.7 months of available listings, new listings do not need a lot of extra marketing effort in order to sell. As long as your home is listed in the Multiple Listing Service, it will sell quickly. Some homes are even selling a little over value because buyers are desperate for choices.
If you want your home in the Multiple Listing Service, contact Jared Clemence (that’s me!). List with me, because I have been buying and selling real estate since 2001, and because I can list your home with the Multiple Listing Service under the name of a brokerage that Bakersfield trusts to provide quality homes with top-rate REALTORs.
Jared uses online advertising that goes beyond Zillow, Trulia, and Redfin. Because I spent twenty years in the Web Development industry, I know how to use the Internet, cookies and other hi-tech tools to give your home listing an advantage over all others.
