Each season offers its own advantages to buyers and sellers, and fall and winter are no exception. For example, one of the biggest and most obvious benefits to buyers is a drop in home prices as the year closes out. 
“Over the last decade, the median home price on average fell close to 10% from its peak in June to its seasonal low in January of the following year,” says Ruben Gonzalez, KWRI chief economist. “On a median-priced home, you could be saving more than $30,000 if you’re willing to deal with less choices in the second half of the year.” 
Whether your clients are selling or buying, there are plenty of reasons to enter into the less competitive market of fall and winter. Here are two ben ...

Five Ways to Increase Your Home’s Value Before You Sell

Five Ways to Increase Your Home’s Value Before You Sell

Looking to sell your home? Not so fast! While Ashley Lay Real Estate CAN’T WAIT to list your property, we also want to make sure you receive the biggest return possible on your investment.  So, before you put your home on the market, here are some tips to consider to help increase the value.
