Our Agents Answer Six Common Real Estate Questions

November 8, 2021


For nearly two years, seemingly every industry has had to deal with unprecedented changes. The real estate industry is no exception as inventory of homes for sale and interest rates were at historic lows causing the market to be fiercely competitive. As the story of the real estate market continues to unfold, it’s vital to have an experienced real estate professional by your side. Northeast Florida real estate experts at Davidson Realty are answering some of the most common real estate questions. 


When is the best time to sell a home?

Quite a few people have asked me this lately and, honestly, in Florida or at least in our area, our selling season is year-round. Especially with the low inventory, we are experiencing, there doesn’t seem to be a wrong time to sell your home. Buyers are watching the market very closely for new listings to pop up. Some markets may slow down in the winter, but we have snowbirds who begin their search in January,” shares agent Shelley Nemethy


With the current market, should I still buy a new home before I sell my old one?

“If your current home is in an active community and in excellent condition, buying a new home before selling your current home could certainly be an option. However, if it is too much of a financial risk to put yourself in, in the event you had to carry both mortgages, I would advise against it,” shares agent Jennifer Todd


Is it still a seller’s market?

“It is still a seller’s market. Until we begin seeing a more balanced inventory in homes available, it will continue to be a seller’s market,” continues Nemethy. 


How should I prepare my home before selling it?

“Pack away or get rid of all clutter. The removal of clutter and items that you don’t need on a daily basis will enlarge your home. Eliminating excess furniture can also make a huge difference in how a home shows, “ shares agent Lynn Whitley. “You will recoup the cost of renting a storage unit and you will be a step ahead on packing when you accept an offer.”


What is your best advice for current home sellers?

“I suggest pricing your home to the current market and letting the market take the price to where it should be,” continues Todd. “ Always have your home spotless, no one wants to buy a dirty home!”


What is your best advice for current homebuyers?

“Hire an experienced real estate agent that knows how to help a buyer bid and win in this current competitive market. You’ll be glad you did,” continues Nemethy.
