Summer has arrived; June has been a busy month and we look forward to increasing business

Should we sell our home right now? Is this a good time to list our property?

  • It may be a better time to lease one's home in today's market?

When thinking about selling your property, you may want to determine all aspects before listing with a Realtor, since the housing market isn't what it used to be. Many people find themselves upside down, due to falling home values and the downturn in The Economy.

Many people need to sell a house elsewhere, so there is a need for both Executive Housing, as well as affordable rental housing in the Cedar Rapids/Marion marketplace. Your property may make a good rental property?

One may want to look at more than one marketing option.

  • Cash sale

  • Contract sale

  • Rent with an option to purchase

  • Renting the property and waiting for the market to rebound

  • Dual marketing: for sale, for rent

We often find people enquiring about property management and leasing service, after they have had their property on the market for sale. How many are investigating all aspects, prior to listing? Not investigating all aspects could decrease your cash position and your market value.

We have had a busy month, as we mentioned.
