According to the National Association of Realtors, Georgia’s real estate market was up in terms of purchases this year. If you’re considering selling property in Smyrna, everything points to 2017 being a great year to go ahead and do it.


Buyers Are Active


The National Association of Realtors reports that Georgia’s statewide market was strong where buyers were concerned. In fact, many states saw strong buying activity, indicating that Americans’ interest in homeownership is on the rise overall.


Conversely, people in Georgia tended to want to hold onto their properties. That means that, if you’re interested in selling, the market conditions could make it a great time to go ahead and do so.


What’s a Seller’s Market?


In real estate, a seller’s market means that sellers tend to have an advantage over buyers. Quite simply, it means that real estate in a given area is desirable and, thus, people aren’t necessarily jumping at the chance to sell. That, of course, means that those homeowners that do decide to sell property can ask more for it, because buyers have to work harder to find a property that suits their needs.


If you have property in Smyrna, you’re probably aware of the fact that property values overall have increased over the past few years. A lot of people, it seems, want to make Smyrna their home, and there’s little wonder why. It’s a great community and it’s very close to one of the most notable cities in the southeast, Atlanta; a city known for both its tremendous amount of commerce and its eclectic, vibrant cultural attractions.


Is it Time to Sell?


If you’re interested in exploring the possibility of selling your property in Smyrna, the first step is to contact a Realtor. While for-sale-by-owner sites offer home valuations and other features, they’re not particularly reliable. Your home’s value needs to be analyzed by a professional and, if you go on the market asking too much—a lot of people who use Internet self-selling sites make that mistake—buyers are likely to stop looking at your home at all. If a property is on the market for too long, it loses desirability.


We can give you a solid estimate on the value of your home and help you come up with a selling strategy. Smyrna homeowners, because the community is desirable, could stand to make a nice profit on their properties, but only if the deal is handled right, from pricing to negotiation to closing the deal. We can guide you at every step of the way.
