  3.   You can make it your own.
  4.   There is stability with having a fixed principal and interest payment.
  5.   You decide when you move, not when the landlord wants to sell or raise your rent amount.

What do you need to know about  the Millennial and Real Estate

The Millennial buyers are going to make an impact in the 2015 real estate market.  The media has often portrayed the millennial as lazy with no drive or motivation?

They are actually very bright, intelligent, and much more responsible than we give them credit for. This is why they find ways to save, like staying at their parents home. so that when they are ready to go out into the real estate market, they come out as renters, not buyers.

There are good 4 letters words and bad ones...luckily Treu Group clients hear one of our favorite words a lot and that is sold. 

The past few days, we have said the word "Sold" to buyers and sellers in Palm Beach County and Martin County too.  The most exciting thing for buyers is that we often win in multiple offers.  It is always great to deliver amazing news. And our sellers often have more than one offer to choose from so they get the best price and the best terms.

If you are thinking of selling your home, you will likely want to sell for top dollar.  Who wouldn't?  Seldom does someone call and want to take less than their home is worth.  Getting top dollar for a home is a team effort.  It takes three things, the right price, the condition and the right marketing (aka agent). Two of the three things are controlled by the seller. 

Today, let's talk about condition.  This is one of the items that the owner of the home controls.  Of course, as your real estate agent, we give you advice.  One of the misconceptions is that it takes a lot of money to get your home ready to sell.  That is not true.  Many times it is the little things that make the difference.
