January Market Report with the MacGuire Team

Image
We're onto another month in the real estate world, and with a new month means new local real estate market conditions in El Paso County, Colorado. Check out the market insights of what January looked like and how it may affect you if you are planning on buying a Colorado Springs home.


Average Days On Market
As of January, we saw a lower average of inventory sitting just 46 days on the market, compared to the historically recorded 67 days. This means homes are selling more quickly historically, but compared to last month, about a week longer on the market. Low inventory tells us this quicker sell time could continue until the market sees a surge in available properties for sale. This is great news for the seller who's hoping to move their property quickly.

Sales prices as of January have been just a hair under listing prices, averaging at 99.2%. The historical average is 98.3% for the El Paso County area within this time of year. Inventory being so low is…

Relocation Tips to Make Moving Easier

Image
There's nothing easy about relocating. Whether you're relocating to Colorado Springs from out of state or you're just moving across town to be closer to work or school - moving can be a challenge. Because we know this all too well, the MacGuire Team aims to help make your moving process a little easier, even if just through the way we help you buy a Colorado Springs home. Here are a few tips you can utilize through the relocation process to make it feel a little smoother.


Plan Ahead
The earlier you start planning for your relocation, the easier it can be. Start organizing, decluttering, and packing as early as you can. The less time you have to pack up your home, the more cluttered and thrown together the boxes will appear, which can make the unpacking process more challenging. Make sure you label every box, even with the room that it belongs in, and you could even consider color coordinating the rooms with colored tape to make it easy to know what goes where.

Staging Trends for 2019

Image
Staging your home can often be the difference between a successful sale and keeping your home on the market longer than you had hoped. When considering staging, you should keep in mind some of the design trends throughout the season so that your home fits in well. If you’ve never considered the benefit of staging your home, here are a few great reasons to do so, and a few trends that have hit the market this year!

What Is Staging? Staging a home is taking it and making it look the best it can for the sale process. It’s important to keep in mind that there are two staging types to keep in mind though - partial and complete staging.

Partial Staging: This is most popular with sellers who will still be living in their home while it’s on the market. Stagers will make use of both your current furniture, but also supplement with pieces and designs of their own to fill in the gaps. This can be awesome if you are still living in your home but challenging because the designers are limited to you…
