Is it a Buyers or a Seller’s Market?

The market remains a seller’s market. Supply is not keeping up with demand and the low days on the market is telling of how quickly properties are moving. Buyers have to be prepared to act quickly when making an offer and making your very best offer right out of the gate has become a necessity.

 

If you’re considering selling the current market is in your favor. With that said, it does not mean you can overprice your home. Supply might be extremely low but, that doesn’t mean buyers won’t spot an overpriced home and eliminate it from their search. Planning ahead and teaming up with a local real estate agent that’s an expert in your area to properly execute a successful sale remains imperative. The details of preparing your home for sale, properly pricing it, and launching the right marketing plan will take you from listed to sold in the shortest time possible for the highest sale price possible.
