Wrap Up:


As the weather warms up and the summer season comes closer, we continue to see a healthy increase in new listings every month, with April being no exception. However, sales are also growing, and we are seeing the most in demand properties leaving the market swiftly. The buyers are out there and looking, but if your home has been on the market now may be the time to have a discussion with your agent about the best way to get buyers to zero in on your property. Whether that means a competitive price or advertising strategy, now is the time to talk game plan with a pro listing agent today.  

If you're currently listed or thinking about listing and want a quick checkup on the market, our "Market Snapshot." may be of interest to you!


It is a great time to be a buyer, and with new listings in April reaching over the 4-digit mark, you are slowly but surely regaining the ability to become more choosy in your home search. However, competitively priced and in-demand listings are being sold quickly, so in order to get a great price or a leg up on a desirable property, you need a real estate expert to guide you in your journey. reach out to our office today to get started!
