Since September of 2014 (41 months), there have only been 9 months of declines during the Tallahassee real estate market recovery. While we have not come close to hitting the highs that were reported in 2006, the progressive recovery has been well received.

The market moved 16.1% higher in February, which means it is up 8.9% overall for the first two months of 2018 when compared to January and February of 2017.

This is an important question. My friend, 78, plans to sell his 40 year old home in Waverly Hills in the next year. He feels he can sell it as is, but I caution him that most homes sold in that neighborhood have been upgraded to show well on the internet sites. Would you advise upgrading or leave it to fate?

Great question George. The short answer is 'it depends.' Too often, I see real estate agents recommend that homeowners do a lot of renovation/updates before they sell. I'd have to see the home and make recommendations based on what would actually create 'profit' for the seller. No need to spend $20K to get $10K more on the sale, right?
