What do you need to know about selling a house in Milliken Colorado? 

Milliken Colorado Real Estate

The market in Northern Colorado definitely favors sellers. There are very few homes for sale and prices have been increasing. Even though the market favors sellers, there are many things a seller can do to get the most money out of their home. 

  • Homes must be priced right: If you price a home too low, the seller may leave thousands of dollars on the table. Price a home too high and the seller may have a home sit on the market and sell for thousands less than if they had priced it right
  • Homes must be marketed right: A home must be in the MLS, as well as marketed in as many places as possible to get maximum exposure. 
  • Homes must be as attractive as possible: The nicer a home looks, the more it will sell for. However, some upgrades are not worth the money they cost. Our team can help you decide where to spend money and where to save it. 
  • Seller’s need to know what is typically included: Different parts of the country have different customs. In Colorado it is typical for many things to be included in a sale that may not be included in other parts of the country. 
  • Seller’s need to be able to negotiate based on market conditions: In a tight housing market it can be tricky handling multiple offers, contracts, negotiating price and dates, inspection items, and appraisals. Our team knows how to negotiate with buyers and other agents as well. We also are very proactive in helping appraisers come in with the correct value. 

There are many other issues that seller’s must deal with to ensure they get the most money they can, for their home. Contact us to get a free market evaluation and an overview of what it takes to sell in Northern Colorado today.

What do you need to know about buying a home in Milliken Colorado?

Milliken has a very competitive housing market with few homes listed for sale. The housing market in Northern Colorado has changed greatly in the last four years. Homes in some neighborhoods have doubled in value thanks to high demand and low supply.

Prior to 2012 the market was driven by foreclosures and distressed sales, but those have all but disappeared. It is very tough to find any houses that are less than $200,000, unless they need a great deal of work.

Even though home prices have risen significantly in Milliken the last four years, there is some good news for home buyers. Interest rates continue to be at record low levels, which make owning a home much more affordable. The majority of a mortgage payment goes to paying interest. A 1 percent lower interest rate can mean close a $40,000 increase in buying power in the $300,000 price range.

If you are looking to buy a home in Milliken, you will need a great team to help you through the process:

  • Real estate agent: A great real estate agent can help you find the right home, act on your behalf and help you navigate a tight market. Acting fast is sometimes the best way to get the home you want in a tight market. Our agents are dedicated to our clients and we give them plenty of support to work quickly for you.
  • Mortgage broker or lender: A mortgage broker or lender can help you find the best financing. There are many first time home buyer programs available in Colorado. There is even grant money they government will give to home buyers, but many lenders are not familiar with these programs. Our team can also help you find the right lender who can get you the best loan.
  • Home inspectors: A home inspector can tell you the major items that are wrong with a home and all the little things that may need fixed as well. When you are making a big investment, you need to be sure in what you are buying. We can also help you find a great inspector.

Buying and selling a home at the same time in Milliken Colorado

Some people are looking to buy a home, some are looking to sell, and sometimes people are looking to do both! It can be tricky to coordinate buying and selling a home, but it is possible. We have many clients who sell their home and buy a new home the same day, which eliminates the need for them to move twice. Everything has to be lined up well, you have to have a great agent and great lender to make selling and buying at the same time work. 

Many homeowners have to sell the home they are currently living in, in order to buy a new home. It is tough to qualify for two houses at once, and that is why one house must be sold, before you can buy the new house. There are many ways to accomplish this feat:

  • List your house for sale and look for a new house: If you have to sell one house to buy another, it may be tougher to get an offer on a home accepted. House sellers tend to like offers that are not contingent on the buyer selling their own home. If the buyer already has their home under contract, the seller will look much more favorably at their offer. By listing your house first it makes it more likely you can get an offer on a new home accepted. However, you run into the risk of selling your home, without finding a new home to move into. There are ways our team can protect you in this situation. 
  • Find a home to buy and then list your home: This technique is less risky, because you have already found a home to buy, before you put your home up for sale. However, many sellers will be hesitant to accept an offer before the buyers have listed their home. They do not know if the buyers will be asking a reasonable price or how quickly the home will sell. There are ways you can make this work and I helped some clients use this technique a couple months ago with great success. The use of contingencies, first right of refusals and 72 hours clauses can protect both sides. 
  • Sell your house first and then look for a home: Some homeowners decide it is easier to move twice by selling their home first, moving somewhere for a few months and then buying a new home. This takes much of the stress out of the process (except for the stress of moving) by making it easier to get an offer accepted on a new house. 

Our team can help you figure out the best way to buy and sell a home at the same time. It can be tricky working it all out and making sure there are no hiccups along the way. Our 80 plus years of experience can make sure it is as painless as possible.

Testimonials

  • “I have had Realtors help me in the past with buying and selling but this is the first time I’ve ever had a Realtor go above and beyond anything I ever expected, as Justin has done. Justin has done so many important things, i.e., going to look at prospects and sending me videos of them via e-mail, handling communication with property managers and a prospective handyman, just generally keeping on top of every little thing, and so much more. His advice has been invaluable. I would never hesitate to recommend him to anyone I know looking for a home in northern CO and I plan to look him up when I am ready to sell as well.”
