The Latest Housing Trends - Cumming Ga Homes for Sale

The Latest National Housing Trends

With the number of new listings going up and average days on market going down, buyers may have more options, but will still want to move fast.

Cumming Ga Update:

Cumming Ga remains a strong sellers market - the months supply of homes is the first stat I look at and it sits at a 1.7 month supply of homes - which is well below what I consider a neutral market (around a 6 months supply)

 

The Good news is the amount of homes for sale continues to grow and as that happens Sellers are feeling more comfortable listing their homes because they feel they have a choice as to where they live.

Some Highlights

 

  • Wondering if now’s a good time to sell your house? Based on how many homes are on the market, there are two big reasons why this spring is looking so good for sellers.
  • Thanks to an uptick in inventory over last year, you’ve got more options for your next home. But there are still fewer homes for sale than there’d normally be, meaning your house should stand out and get a lot of attention from buyers.
  • If you want to sell your house, this spring is the sweet spot. When you’re ready, let’s chat to get the ball rolling.

Colors to Avoid When Selling a Home

Colors to Avoid When Selling a Home

Adding color is a hot trend in home design lately, but be careful which color you choose.

Are you selling your home and want to know one of the best investments in your home?Simple, paint is one of the best investments that helps homes sell faster and for more money.So, what color should I paint?That is a very popular question.

What do realtors and home stagers recommend?Most home stagers prefer white or neutral colors when preparing a home for the market. Some colors can be distracting and a turn-off to home buyers.

Red rooms can be beautiful.  However, a red-painted living room or dining area; red is the most off-putting color, according to a survey of home staging and design professionals conducted by the home remodeling site Fixr . com “Red is an extremely strong color and may not be to everybody’s taste,” the study notes.

Fixr’s Paint & Color Trends 2024 report flags the following as the most off-putting colors to home buyers:

·Red: 53% 

·Lime green: 53%

·Bright yellow: 40%

·Mustard yellow: 19%

·Pink: 10%

·Turquoise: 9%

Instead of splashing interiors in bright hues, home stagers and designers say they like to use color strategically to warm up a space and even make it appear more spacious.

For example, 61% of experts recommend using warm neutrals—like beiges and whites—to help make small spaces appear larger. “Warm neutrals can reflect light and visually recede, and their calmness can make a space feel less overwhelming,” the study notes. White was a favorite among home stagers in making spaces seem more spacious and giving the illusion of higher and wider ceilings.

“When selling a house, paint and color trends need to be used in a softened way,” Birgit Anich of BA Staging & Interiors said in the Fixr study. The latest trends may call for attention-getting colors, but Anich warns that “a trend today is not necessarily the trend that buyers are yet ready to embrace. They need to have certain exposure to a new trend before they fall in love with the new trend. While these trends are great for interior design, they need to be used in a more moderate way when selling a property.”

If you love these colors paint your home these colors well before you put your home on the market.  When selling your home, follow the advice of your agent and stager.
