When selling a property, there are a number of things to consider because there are different factors that affect pricing and valuation. An article recently published by the Seattle Times reports that home prices are increasing faster in the most affordable spots in Washington such as Federal Way:
National reports this week suggested the housing market was showing signs of weakness—but it all depends on where you live.
In the first quarter, the average price of single-family homes sold in King and Snohomish counties increased between 2 and 27 percent from a year ago, depending on the area, according to data from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
While average 12-month price appreciation in King County slowed to 11 percent at the end of March — from almost 15 percent a year ago — some lower-priced areas have seen average prices jump more than 20 percent annually.
They include affordable suburbs like Shoreline, Federal Way, Maple Valley and Burien.
If you are planning to sell your home and hoping to make the most out of this real estate trend, you should see to it that your property is at its top shape. You must be prepared to perform some home improvement projects, repairs, and renovations to increase the value of your home. One of the aspects that you should look into is your roof as it may already show signs of wear and tear after years of standing against harsh weather conditions. A Federal Way roofing contractor such as Tedrick’s Roofing can help you assess.
As your trusted contractor, we will evaluate every nook and corner of your roof and recommend repairs if they are needed. Moreover, we will also look for signs if you need a completely new roof. Some of these are the following:
