April Showers Bring Inventory Struggles

Hello 


April showers bring inventory struggles. As the inventory story continues, so does the decline of home sales and rising prices according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report. Home sales have declined for the fourth month in a row. For the 24th consecutive month, home prices have gone up! Why? Because of the number of homes on the market is at a record low. You can read all of the details in the full housing report here.

What’s all this mean for you? If you’re selling, it continues to be your market. Homes that are on the market are selling fast and generally at a higher price. If you’re buying, there’s still good news despite the low inventory. March recorded the second-highest month in sales in the history of the RE/MAX National Housing Report. I’d be happy to help you navigate the market to find your home. Give me a call or reply to this email.

As always, thank you for trusting me for all of your real estate needs.

 

Have a great day,
Bethany Weiser

How to Write Effective Ads for Real Estate Listings

How to Write Effective Ads for Real Estate Listings, Anchorage, Alaska

When potential home buyers are browsing real estate listings, does your ad catch their eye and hold their interest? At Mehner Weiser Real Estatein Anchorage, AK, their experienced Realtors® craft listings that attract prospects and then turn them into home buyers. Below, this team of real estate agents shares tips on writing ads that lead to deals.

3 Keys to Effective Real Estate Listings

Offer a Compelling Headline & Photo

Like successful newspaper publishers, real estate agents need to create attention-grabbing headlines. Given the unlimited information in print and on the internet, it’s essential to “show and tell” prospects clearly and quickly what a home has to offer. Put your best pitch and picture up front.  

Give the Benefits

real estateWise real estate agents know they aren’t selling houses; they’re selling lifestyles. Take that approach with your ads. Show buyers what’s in it for them. How close are schools, parks, restaurants, retail shopping, and personal services? Are the houses for sale near a golf course or recreation center? Agents who provide up-to-date information about amenities of the home and community give home shoppers reasons to keep reading.

Reinforce the Headline at the End

Before home buyers finish reading, remind them what drew their attention initially. Reinforce the pitch and photo at the end of the ad and give the readers a call to action. Effective ads state what number to call, who to ask for, and alternative means of contact, such as email or text. When appropriate, create a sense of urgency, which motivates buyers to act quickly.

Hot Home Trends You Can’t Miss

by Mehner Weiser Real Estate, LLC.

 

I love getting caught up on the latest trends - especially when it comes to trends in home technology and design. These trends are great if you’re trying to freshen up the look of your home or give your home a tech update. Regardless of when you’re thinking about selling, these updates could be attractive to future buyers. Plus, you’ll love living with them.
 

Vintage Lighting 

A quick, modern update to the lighting in your home can be relatively easy and inexpensive. Retro lighting like sconces, lanterns, pendants, and chandeliers can add character and style points to many homes.

Air Quality Detectors

We all know smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors have been around for years. Now, there’s one smart air quality detector that can alert you of smoke, radon, carbon dioxide, and organic compounds via an app. You can get instant stats on the quality of the air you live in - not just when dinner is getting overcooked. 

Colorful Kitchens 

Kitchens are generally the busiest room in a house. Another hot trend is to give kitchens a boost of color. Warm wood colors like mahogany along with blues and grays are making their way onto kitchen walls.
