There are several marketing strategies that I use with each home I list for sale.  To be a top listing agent in Beaumont, Lumberton, Orange or any part of Southeast Texas for that matter, you have to know how to effectively market a property to reach the most potential buyers.  

More buyers = more offers = best price for the seller.  

To put a home in the MLS is not enough!  The quality of photos is critical.  Have you looked at some of the real estate photos out there?  There are some bad ones.  Staging a home is important.  Colors, furniture arrangement, clutter all have an impact on the buyers looking at your home online.  

Three dimensional tours are used by the top agents in Beaumont, Lumberton, and Orange.  When you are ready to list your home ask any agent you interview what marketing strategy they will use to expose your home to the most buyers.  

If you are thinking of selling your home and are ready to talk to a top REALTOR then contact me.  You can reach me on the blog or by text.  I specialize in helping people sell their homes and my top priorities are high level marketing and outstanding customer service.  

Sincerely,

Diane

Buying or Selling in Westchase Village, Beaumont, Texas

Knowing the market is critical when you plan to buy or sell a home.  Top Real Estate Agents know the local market.  We have access to the latest and most accurate data.  Zillow doesn't. 

Today I'm sharing market data from Westchase Village in Beaumont.  I'm not sharing it all.  That would be silly.  Then why would you need to call me?  This is what I call the fast stats.  

Eleven sales since August 2019.

You might wonder how this information -minimums, maximums, averages -help you buy or sell a home.  These numbers give you a good idea what you might expect to pay to buy or what you might expect to profit on a sale.  

That's the big picture for the neighborhood.  From there you have to compare apples to apples.  You don't compare a 15 year old home to a 5 year old home unless the 15 year old home has had some major updates.  That's where working with a top real estate agent can save you thousands of dollars.  

If you have questions about Westchase Village or any other neighborhood in Beaumont, I'm here to help.  Contact me on the blog, call, text or make an appointment to meet me at my office.  Let me know what neighborhood you want the fast stats on.  I'll post them here on the blog.

Sincerely,

Diane

The highest median home price award goes to Hardin County thanks in large part to the new construction going on in Lumberton.  Orange, Beaumont and Jefferson Counties median prices are within $5,000 of each other.  

Orange County has the highest average number of days on the market at 112.  It's taking about a month longer to sell a home in Orange vs Jefferson and Hardin.

Average Number of Days to sell a Home in Beaumont, Texas

For the month of April it took an average of 94 days to sell a home in Beaumont, Texas.  

Beaumont Sales April

That is about typical for the last few months in the median price ranges.  In Beaumont, the median price of a home that sold in April was $139,900.  Home sales under $200,000 accounted for close to half of all sales.  Just 5.8% of the homes that sold in April closed for over $300,000.  

What you should know-

As a seller if you have a home under $200,000 it is a sellers market.  Just plan to list your home approximately 90 days before you want to move.  

As a buyer it is still a sellers market with low levels of inventory (not many homes on the market) in all but the upper price ranges.  You will need to act fast to have a chance to get the best of homes.  Many of the move in ready homes are still going under contract in the first two weeks they are listed.  

If you are looking for more information about a certain neighborhood contact me.  I'll be glad to help.

Sincerely,

Diane
