You'll find that being prepared and aware of potential risks makes for a better vacation and homecoming.

House Sale Price, List It Right from the Beginning

Are there any negative effects from changing the listing price of a property? This question haunts home sellers every day.
Professor John R. Knight investigated the impact of changing a property's listing price. The findings from his research indicate:

2. Bigger price changes are found to experience even longer marketing times and greater price discounts.
3. The greater the initial markup; the higher the likelihood that any given property will experience a listing price change.
Sellers should be aware of the critical necessity of getting the price correct from the start. Sellers wanting to over list, will ultimately take longer to sell and will sell their property for less, on average, according to Knight.

Your Home, Interest Rates and Quantitative Easing

You have no doubt noticed the increase in mortgage rates in the last month - maybe that statistic has even caused you to wonder if NOW is the time to sell your home. Happily the real estate market continues to flourish despite average rates creeping to nearly 4%, although inventory still shows significant lows. Still, you may find yourself wondering how and if these rate changes could impact the sale of your home and the future of housing in your local market.
 
An introduction into the Federal Reserve and it’s role in interest rates may help you understand its impact on your home. In the past the Federal Reserve, as the central banking unit in the United States, has largely determined current interest rates.

Relocating With Kids

Your home is a place of stability and peace for you and if you have children, it can be a grounding force in their lives. Relocating to a new community (or even a new block) can be a very challenging, though exciting, event for you and for them.

 
As friends and schools are left behind, regular landmarks and teams are changed, and even wallpaper is replaced, the longing for home, your home, can be very real and lead to lasting impact on your children's lives.
 
Developing happiness despite the relocation confusion and upset is important and several methods can help in calming your child's sense of upheaval.
Create a new start in your new community and in your home by:


 
Constructing a positive experience from your move. Teach your children that change is inevitable but that good can come by finding exciting things to do in your new town, involving them in planning activities, and the decorating of your home.
