Could this be the moment where the housing market finally takes a turn for the better? I believe so, so do other realtors in and around all areas of the country. Spring is featured as being a time of growth, all things new begin in Spring. I believe this is the time when things are going to take a turn for the best. We here at Greater Danbury Homes have a wide selection of appealing homes that we believe is a right fit for new, and seasoned home buyers.
In a recent blog post, we talked about the job growth here in the Danbury area and we are pleased to know that our city is continuing to grow. With that we share the same optimism as many other realtors do in the housing market. We believe it’s only a matter of time before things really kick off.
I tell some of my clients “listen this home has a lot of potential, but it needs some TLC” (tender love and care). Maybe if we look at the way in which we buy homes, like this commenter stated in an interesting point during a recent article in NPR, “The New Rules of Homeownership in the 21st Century [J. Varnie Barker] discusses more sustainability in our finances and really zero’s in on creating wealth from our homes.” I think there are many ways we can look at that statement.
1) A potential “fixer-upper” might just be a great house to flip and resell for a better price.
2) A single family home with a basement that has bathroom connections, kitchen, and room for living could potentially be a money maker. You can renovate the basement, seal off the upstairs, and build new accesses for someone who could potentially rent the unit.
These are just two simple ways at looking at the overall potential of future home buying, and selling, and Spring is the best time to do it! Please leave your thoughts and comments below.
