Another one sold, fast!

There just is not enough inventory of homes on the market today to satisfy the buyers who are looking. We put up for a sale an older home, 4 sides brick, that was located along side a busy road. This home sold in less than 2 weeks for almost the entire list price! Why? Well several things. The home was in good condition and priced right. And, there are so few homes for sale in the area we stood out.

The couple who bought the home have 2 small children and loved the fenced back yard. The home is perfect for them. But, we turned away a bunch of other people who were also interested in the home. They were just not quick enough in this case to get the home.

So, 2 lessons learned here…If you are a seller, now is a great time to put your home on the market. Even though this is historically a slow time of the year, there is little competition right now which could help sell your home quickly. And second, if you are shopping for a new home and find something you like, make an offer. Those that are waiting are finding the house is sold already when they finally decide to do something.
