of desirable homes is low!!
Yes, there are listings on the market now that have been lingering for months without selling. Unfortunately that is because they failed to appeal to buyers either by price or presentation when first going on the market. Don’t let these sellers influence you… if you are ready to make a move, this is a great time to put your home on the market … buyers are looking for great homes and not finding them. (No kidding, I was working throughout the holiday week with buyers checking out anything that we thought had “potential”.)
According to KCM:
Buyer Demand Continues to Outpace the Supply of Homes For Sale
The National Association of REALTORS’ (NAR) Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun recently commented on the inventory shortage:
“While feedback from REALTORS® continues to suggest healthy levels of buyer interest, available listings that are move-in ready and in affordable price ranges remain hard to come by for many would-be buyers.”
If you are thinking about making a move this year, this may be the perfect time of year to get your home listed and sold. Too many home owners wait until the Spring and end up losing out when other homes are also hitting the market to compete for buyers. List your home now and be sure it will stand out in a less crowded market. Low inventory and my marketing strategies… it is sure to sell.
If you are committed to making a move, I strongly urge you to get your home listed and sold, then let’s get you into temporary housing. Initially it may not sound appealing, but how does a carefree winter from shoveling snow sound? Plus you will be much more marketable as a buyer in the spring as you will be presenting offers that are not contingent on you selling a house. Ahh… the joys of the non-contingent buyer… you are going to love the step up it will give you against other buyers when the busy housing market hits. And, you will also love the flexibility you’ll have to go after that perfect listing as soon as it hits MLS for sale.
Happy to chat or help in any way whether you interested in buyer or selling! My goal is to enable buyers and sellers to make the decisions that are right for them.
