The Local Real Estate Market Is Like Nothing We Have Seen in Years!

By mark-slade May 8, 2012

The Local Real Estate Market has been fast and furious this past month.

In fact, since April 8th, there have been 97 new listings and of these, 27 are either in attorney review or Under Contract/Pending Sale.

This is the best we have seen in quite some time.

What does this mean for Buyers? It means new listings are being “sold” within the first days they are listed. From personal experience, I had accepted offers on my two most recent listings, one this past week and one the week prior. It also means that Multiple Bids have also become quite common. So, Buyer Beware in the current market means buyer’s need to be aware the market has shifted back to the Seller’s advantage, at least at the moment.

What does this mean for Sellers? well, if you were on the fence about selling your home, i would say that with the inventory levels being lower than they have been in years, that you would have an increased probability of selling your home for a fair market price. If you would like to know what your home is worth in today’s market, i am able to meet with you and provide you with an Advanced Comparable market analysis.
