What it all means
The current numbers are indicative of market shift. We are seeing a little more inventory, homes are sitting on the market a little bit longer and prices are not going up as fast as we were seeing before. These are all factors that need to be considered for those selling a home. If you are selling, you definitely want to get your home listed on the market before the spring surge arrives as their will be a lot more supply on the market. Currently the demand outpaces the supply, that may diminish in the months to come and will affect the success in selling the home.
If you are thinking about selling, don’t hesitate and give a call today.
We are seeing some very competitive properties on the market in the $300K-$400K price range. If you are shopping for home under $400,000 you should get aggressive in getting out and viewing the homes. You cannot wait for the open houses on the weekend. You must have an agent or a representative get you in to view the home the same day it comes on the market.
