      This is good staging. People smile when they walk into a house like this.

      This is bad staging. It just is.

      This Central Vermont market is giving all signs of a strong sellers’ market. With an inventory ranging from 3.6 months in Montpelier to 10.9 months in Barre City we see that homes in some markets tend to move faster than in others.

       

      Takeaway:

      Buyers--be ready to move fast and make strong offers.

      Sellers--Price right, and solve any problems beforehand. Everyone will be happy.

      “Thanks for working hard for us. I’ve bought two houses in the past, sold one, and I haven’t had a Realtor work this hard before.   I appreciate it.”

       

      We do too! Lindsay joins Brian Steinmetz, Marina Carleton, and Ray Mikus, along with Administrative Assistant Maria Lamberti.

      Congratulations to all our buyers who took advantage of our May and June promotion. Several savvy buyers got $500 from Green Light Real Estate to pay for some of their closing costs.

       

      And, a shout out to Wanda at Academy Mortgage, for matching our promotion with an additional $500 for buyers working with Academy.

      The Crystal Ball: We get a lot of calls from people who don’t want to sell their homes.

       

      Yet. It’s really smart to think ahead. If you're thinking that next year is the year, talk with a Realtor, make a plan, get some numbers and put yourself in a great position to sell for the best price NEXT year.

       

      We can help with inspection items, appraisal issues, improvements, and staging. Give yourself all the advantages!

      Call, text, email, or just stop into our office to find out how much your house is worth.

       

      Or to have a FREE consultation and make a strategy for finding, and BUYING your new home.

       

      Get a plan. Get a house. Pretty simple.

      Green Light Real Estate is locally owned. We don’t have headquarters in Texas, New Jersey, or Connecticut. Um, actually, we don’t have headquarters. But you can stop into our office on State Street.
