Hatch Realty going to more than 500 homes looking for home owners to sell
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Finding a home in just the right neighborhood can be difficult. And in the Fargo-Moorhead area, there aren't that many properties in desired areas.
But some real estate companies are trying to work around that problem.
Erik Hatch/Hatch Realty: “It's very much a sellers’ market in our community. People can't find what they're looking for.”
So Hatch realty decided to take matters into their own hands to find clients homes - going door to door - to more than 500 homes - looking for sellers.
Hatch: “The demand from our clients is pretty dang high.”
Going door-to-door might seem old fashion, but for Hatch realty it's a good way to find homes to sell. If you have a home in a neighborhood like this one; where buyers want to live. Selling can be short and simple.
Deb Wald/Sold Home: “I put it on the Thursday afternoon and by Saturday morning at 11 o'clock it was sold.”
And it's not uncommon these days for sellers to make some good money.
Wald: I had four offers and over asking price.
Hatch: “It is a wonderful market if you're selling your home. We're finding that people are getting so much cash for their house. Far more than they ever thought they could because we've seen some radical appreciation in our community.”
Hatch says that in the last year North Dakota has seen an 11% increase in home values and 25% increase since 2006.
So, if you've been thinking about selling your home; now might be the right time to do it.
