The real estate market in South Walton and along 30A is extremely active right now. And, well priced properties that are in “sale ready” condition typically go under contract and are selling more quickly than previous recent years. A recent market study we did revealed that:
41% of the homes that sold this year, went under contract and closed in 45 days or less.
35% more properties have sold year to date as compared to the same time last year.
20% average sales prices increase over 2019 year-to-date sales.
What can you do ahead of time to help insure a smooth sales process?
The 30A market has shifted significantly this year so it's important to find out what comparable properties near you have recently sold in order to set accurate current pricing for your home. Contact us for a custom, no obligation valuation.
Take care of any deferred maintenance items such as torn screens, or leaky faucets, that may get flagged on a home inspection report. Or better yet, consider having a professional property inspection done in advance and take care of any noted problem areas in advance.
Gather financial documents related to your cost of ownership (i.e Homeowners Insurance, property taxes, monthly utilities etc, landscaping and pool maintenance costs, any recent upgrades, etc.)
These estimated items assist buyers as they prepare for ownership after the sale.
The better you are prepared when your home goes on the market, the smoother and less complicated the sales experience will be for you and your buyer.
