    Summer 2017 New Haven Market Update

    Summer 2017 New Haven Market Update

    Today I wanted to give you an update on how the market is doing, and what that means for you as a seller. Today I wanted to talk about how the market is doing, especially here in New Haven and around Wallingford. The median list price in the Wallingford is around $299,900. The demand is actually increasing and the days on the market for properties are trending downward, so we’re actually seeing a lot more multiple offer situations on a lot of these properties, which is great for sellers. The market action index for Wallingford is around 36.2, which is incredible because about six months ago, it was under 30. We’re seeing a lot more multiple-offer situations, which is great for sellers. The market action index tells us how the market is doing by measuring what’s for sale versus what’s actually selling. Any market action index below a 30 implies a buyer’s advantage. Any index of a 30 or above implies a seller’s advantage.  So today’s value of 36.2 means a seller’s advantage, and it’s actually trending upward. What that means is if you’re thinking about selling your home, now is the time to put it on the market. There is high demand in Wallingford, New Haven, and Fairfield counties. In most of Connecticut, there is a high demand for homes. Yes, there is a lot of inventory, but there aren’t a lot of good homes for sale. Good homes tend to sell a lot quicker. If you’re thinking about selling your home, give us a call and let us come down to take a look at your home. We’ll give you an honest, real estimate of what your home is worth. We’d also love to show you some of the innovative marketing that we’re doing to help get homes sold, like professional photography and videography. If you have any questions about this topic or you’re looking to buy or sell a home, give me a call. I look forward to working with you!

    The Importance of Marketing & Positioning Your Home Online

    The Importance of Marketing & Positioning Your Home Online

    Homes are getting left behind in today’s market because they’re not marketed properly online. There’s a way you can ensure your home doesn’t suffer the same fate. If you’re a home seller, marketing and positioning your property online in today’s marketplace is critical. Nobody knows better what buyers are looking for than the buyers themselves. They usually know whether a home is right for them within the first few minutes or even the first 30 to 60 seconds after walking in the front door. The problem is getting them excited enough to actually come see your property in person. If you can’t get them to commit to physically seeing your property, they’ll never have a chance fall in love with it. One of the problems we’ve been experiencing in the marketplace is gorgeous properties being marketed and positioned all wrong. There are buyers in the marketplace whom these properties are perfect for, but these buyers overlook these properties because of the quality of their photos or videos or they lack professional photography and/or videos altogether.  There’s never been a better time to market your home online. There has never been a better time to market your home online, and we can help you do it the right way. Our team offers professional photography, professional video services, professional floor plans, and 360-degree matterport videos that people can view from the comfort of their own home. If you’re looking at selling your home and you’re looking to work with a professional real estate marketing company and not just a real estate agent, give us a call. We’d love to help you sell your house for top dollar.

    What a Fantastic Endorsement From Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts

    What a Fantastic Endorsement From Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts

    Recently, we were fortunate enough to be endorsed by Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts. Here’s what he had to say about our team. We were fortunate enough to recently land an endorsement from one of our favorite musicians, Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts. You can check out the full endorsement in the video above, but what really stood out to us was that the message of his music and the message of our business aren’t so different after all. “When 'I’m Moving On' won the award for ACM song of the year, it struck a chord with folks who understand the challenges that come with life’s big changes. For many, that time comes when they sell their home. If you’re moving on, you want a team that will make selling your home easy and stress-free.” - Gary LeVox It’s always our goal to make things as stress-free as possible. He hit the nail on the head there. It’s always our goal to make things as stress-free as possible for all of our buyers and sellers. We outsold every agent in Fairfield and New Haven County in 2016 and if we can’t sell your home at a price and deadline that we both agree to, we will buy it. If you have any questions for us, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to help you!

    Kind Words From Danny Lyons About Carbutti & Co.

    Kind Words From Danny Lyons About Carbutti & Co.

    We appreciate all the kind words we receive from our past clients. Here’s one of them, WEBE 108’s Danny Lyons.  We were recently fortunate enough to talk to Danny Lyons from WEBE 108 right in the Lyon’s Den. Danny has worked with us in the past and has a lot of nice things to say about his experience, such as: “Jonathan’s a family man. That’s really important to me. He’s also loyal like I am. I’ve been loyal to my listeners for over 30 years and I know that if you were to hire Jonathan to be your agent, he would be loyal to you and commit himself completely to getting the job done.” We’re proud to have Danny in our corner. A lot of real estate companies have their phone lines set up to go to a switchboard or a team of ISAs who may or may not be able to connect you with the person you’re looking for, even if you just had a quick question. That’s not what we do, as Danny points out. “When you call that number, I think it’s Jonathan’s cell phone. The first time I called it, he answered the phone. To me, that means a lot. To be able to get right through to the guy who has his name on the company? That’s customer service.” Thanks to Danny for the kind words. We appreciate having him in our corner. If you have any questions for us or want to know what we can do specifically to help you with your real estate goals, give us a call or send us an email. We would love to hear from you soon.

Click here to perform a full home search, or if you're thinking of selling your home, click here for a FREE Home Price Evaluation so you know what buyers will pay for your home in today's market. You may also call me at (203) 269-4910 x 12 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions. Although 2015 was a fantastic year, today, we have a few predictions about the market this year. 2016 will be a very busy year for the home buying and selling season. Interest rates are supposed to go up this year, and that increase will really drive the volume in the real estate market, as well as home values.  Many people think that when interest rates go up, home prices come down. Actually, the opposite is true. As interest rates rise, so will home prices. If you've been thinking about buying, now is the time to get into the marketplace before rates and prices increase! Let's consider the following question: What real estate topics are you interested in? This year, my team and I want to focus on providing valuable information to our loyal clients. Simply reply to this email with any questions you want answered -- we have your back!   Finally, I want to thank you all on behalf of my team for your referrals in 2015. It was a record-breaking year for referrals, and we are truly grateful to all of you.  As always, if you have any questions, give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you.
