The Real Estate Spring Market is here! And it's early!

Everyone in the coastal northeast is digging out from Blizzard 2013 and cursing the Groundhog that promised us an early Spring. Perhaps he wasn’t talking about the weather!

Realtors spend most of January and early February prospecting and preparing for the Spring Market which typically begins in March. However, this year it appears to be quite early. New listings are hitting the market in abundance every day. Come March, the choices for buyers could be quite overwhelming. If you’re a buyer, this is a GREAT thing. If you’re a seller, you might want to consider listing your home sooner rather than waiting to come on the market with everyone else in March.

Choose your community carefully looking at it's air and water. Look at the economic vitality and see if it is attracting retailers like Whole Foods or wholesalers like BJ's. Look at the debt load a community has saddled itself with and you will have to pay off through higher real estate taxes. Look at the outcome of a communities education system compared to it's cost so you get the greatest value for your dollar. Lastly, look at the last five years of home value increase/(decrease) in a community to discover where it is in the community life cycle. Look for signs at the center of the community for either vitality or entropy. Lastly, if it's a lake community, check to see if they have zebra mussels. If they do, bring deep pockets to remediate because the fed and state governments don't have the money to help. See if community building are raised through philanthropy or taxing people. It tells you a lot.
