Check out today's article on my blog HERE.
There is no doubt that sellers in today's Woodland market are in direct competition with the new construction being completed. I've thought about this a lot in the last few days as I have helped buyers purchase new homes. Sellers in today's market need to consider the attributes of the new homes and work to achieve a "model home" appearance in their home. However, they don't need to be afraid of new homes sales. Model homes get buyers out looking... sometimes what starts as a "hey let's check those out on our way to Costco" ends up with a home purchase. And a lot of people that start at model homes purchase a resale home instead.
If you are considering selling your home, don't be afraid that the new homes are tough competition... your buyers are out there.
