Are you thinking about selling your home and buying a bigger, better home that’s currently on the market? Recent evidence suggests you may be in for a rough ride in finding a listed home that meets the needs of you and your family.
That’s because right now there’s a decreased inventory of homes on the market here in Massachusetts, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette (T&G) reported recently. According to Zillow.com, there were 27 percent fewer homes on the market in June 2013 than there were just one year earlier, the T&G noted. The article pointed out that in today’s market would-be buyers—that would mean you!—can’t be as picky as you could be in a more robust buyer’s market.
Also, a lack of inventory means that buyers are ready to duke it out with others to get their offers accepted, and this can translate into all-out bidding wars, which can drive the cost well past your dream home’s asking price.
So, what can you do to get what you want without settling for less or having to pay far more than you wanted to score an existing home? Remodel!
Here at RemodelWerks we have helped countless clients transform their outdated, minimally functional living spaces with functional layouts with the most modern amenities. As a NARI-certified remodel, we are equipped to launch an all-out assault on cramped bathrooms, kitchens and more. Plus, we’ve been know to “raise the roof”—literally!—by adding extremely useful second levels and finished attics to area homes. Plus, we’re masters at basement remodeling, so if you’re itching for a media/play room but your current home just isn’t cutting it, give us a call. And, be sure to check out last week’s blog post on why it’s cool to be a cellar dweller!
