If you are considering selling your home, now is a great time. Call me.” 7. SELLING: Ignore the housing market. Don’t waste your time watching the housing market for the best time to sell. According to Investopedia, “it doesn’t matter what your home is worth at any given moment except the moment when you sell it. Being able to choose when you sell your home, rather than being forced to sell it due to job relocation or financial distress, will be the biggest determinant of whether you will see a solid profit from your investment.” 8. SELLING: Will renovating always increase my resale value? Make conscious decisions when renovating your home. While newer will entice potential buyers, be cognizant of what rooms you update and how you do it. An updated kitchen will increase the value of your home, but be sure to appeal to a wide range of tastes. A good place to start is with the appliances. Realtor.com states that homes with stainless steel appliances sell 15 percent faster than those without. Updated bathrooms are easier to satisfy a wider range of buyers’ desires for luxury, but be sure to keep the colors neutral. $298,500 2728 Otterbein Drive $174,600 505 Clifton Avenue SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION • FALL 2017 EDUCATION Continued on page 26 ➢ 5 WAYS EDUCATION WILL CHANGE BY 2020 In the next five years, we’ll start to rethink a lot about education, from what’s in school lunches to what a college degree really means.
