Wrap Up:


We opened the New Year with a month of quite average numbers as far as the market is concerned, with both sales and new listings at over 10 perfect below last year's numbers. However, the buyers are still out there and chomping at the bit to get their hands on new listings in 2022, so if you are still considering listing your property, it might be a good idea to get things moving while the market is still mellow. Further, with low interest rates, this is your chance to capitalize on a quick sale with a price likely above what you may have anticipated. 

If you're searching for further motivation for listing your home in this unique market, please watch our new video:  "10 Most Expensive Houses that Sold in 2021."


The beginning of a New Year can be so refreshing, and as a potential buyer the start of a new calendar can bring along with it the potential for finding your dream home. We don't know yet what 2022 will bring as far as the market is concerned, and after the past two years of unprecedented numbers it is really anyone's guess. However, with sales at the low end to start the year, it is looking somewhat possible that things could return more in your favor, or at least to a more level playing field. If you haven't already, now is the time to get ahead of the game and find a real estate expert to guide you in your journey, reach out to our office today to get started.
