2. Is now a good time to buy?

Buying a home now is a great opportunity, when inventory is the highest it has been in 2 years! Due to decreased competition buyers are able to get more inspections and better terms in their purchase agreement.

3. Stage a house for sale or empty it out?

Stage! Homes that are lived in or staged, sell for more than homes that are vacant! Staging makes it easier for potential buyers to see themselves in the home, and it helps with online marketing to sell FASTER! It also helps the home feel newer, bigger, and fresher. This cost has an excellent ROI.
