Wrap Up:


What a great time to be a property owner looking to sell. Typically, the dropping of temperatures in late fall/early winter would bring with them a slowing of sales and inventory. And while the latter may be true, the buyers are still out there aggressively putting in offers! This month boasted an astonishing sell/inventory rate of almost 87%, meaning that buyers are snatching up nearly every listing that goes to market. Without a doubt, we are looking at a very strong market as we close this year. 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 currently listed or thinking about listing your home and considering the idea of allowing the buyer to move in before closing, here is a link to our Video "Buyer Possession Before Closing."


While it may feel like an endless battle being a buyer out there in this market, don't be discouraged. This month showed another small increase (6.51%) in new listings over this month last year, so the property of your dreams may still be out there waiting to hit the market. However, if you have yet to find that perfect property, your best bet is always to get the experts on your side, so reach out to one of our knowledgeable agents today to get an edge on this tough market.
