Spring is just around the corner, and typically the spring market is the hottest time of year for selling and buying a home in Santa Fe. Here are some things to keep in mind if you plan on buying or selling a home in Santa Fe this spring.


Even though Spring is fast approaching, you need to make sure that your home is ready to sell. Remember that first impressions are lasting impressions. Take time to paint that room, replace that carpet, or de-clutter the basement. To get the most money out of your home, also remember that curb appeal is a must. And don’t overprice your home, as it could sit and you miss out on opportunities. Also keep in mind that upgrades can help a home sell faster as well.


Make sure you’re educated on the local market in Santa Fe and have everything prepared ahead of time, like a pre-approval on a loan, etc. Make sure you decide on a price range that you can afford, and keep in mind costs of maintaining a home in your monthly budget. Also it’s the little things that matter when making an offer, like having a larger down payment and being flexible on settlement date. Find out as much as you can about the sellers. In some cases, buyers have “won” a home because they wrote a nice personal letter to the seller saying why they loved the house.
