With the boom in growth and influx of people in the Anchorage area over the past few years, the real estate market is similarly growing at an extremely fast pace. Projected as one of the markets to watch over the next decade, this area is looking extremely positive in terms of return on your property investment. However, if you are currently trying to sell your home, it is important to note the recent growth and move forward with your sale considering the perks of newer properties and how to combat those benefits with your own preowned home’s benefits.
It is no secret that new construction and newer properties in general are appreciated for their updated features, ability to customize smaller details and fixtures and for generally having less maintenance and repairs. However, the Anchorage area has several preowned properties that are loved for their charm, proximity to the downtown area and appreciated for their established neighborhoods and communities.
Keep in mind when you are selling your preowned home that it has several beautiful features, but these need to be put first and displayed in the best light. In order to compete with new construction, your home’s unique charm has to be shown in beautiful photography, the location played up with map features and the community expertly described. Working with a real estate agent who has an easily navigable website that perfectly displays all of your home’s best aspects is of utmost importance. With such low inventory, buyers are ready and waiting for their perfect home to come on the market. It is your job to prepare your home and price it wisely enough to appeal to these buyers instead of their more expensive new construction options.
