If You’re Considering Selling, ACT NOW!! Posted on January 25, 2018 - 11:49 AM by Red Hilton If You’re Considering Selling, ACT NOW!! How did we finish 2017? New-home sales were at their highest level in a decade. Sales of previously owned homes were at their highest level in more than a decade. Starts of single-family homes were their strongest in a decade and applications to build such properties advanced to the fastest pace since August 2007. And Bloomberg Business just reported: “America’s housing market is gearing up for a robust year ahead. Builders are more optimistic, demand is strong and lean inventory is keeping prices elevated.” And the National Association of Realtors revealed that buyer traffic is stronger this winter than it was during the spring buying season last year. The only challenge to the market is a severe lack of inventory. A balanced market would have a full six-month supply of homes for sale. Currently, there is less than a four-month supply of inventory. This represents a decrease in supply of 9.7% from the same time last year. Bottom Line With demand increasing and supply dropping, this may be the perfect time to get the best price for your home. Let’s get together to see whether that is the case in your neighborhood. Thinking of making a move? Keep us in mind. For all your Real Estate decisions...think RED!
