Winter is here!

 

Typically this is the time most real estate agents slow down, if not come to a complete stop!  We purge our files and old contacts, we clean our desks and make goals for the coming year.  This, however, is not a typical winter!  Sales have been brisk and buyers are still out looking for a new home.  The problem is, our inventory of homes has fallen very low.  We are not only seeing lots of sales, but we are now experiencing multiple offers and offers without contingencies!  It is slowly moving into a seller's market again, where we are seeing less and less of the "low ball" offers and more of the competitive offers.  A lot of this has to do with the low inventory…the ole supply and demand, but a lot has to do with more people pricing their homes correctly and understanding the market. If you have been waiting to put your home on the market until Spring, when everything looks nice and new..don't wait!  There are buyers out there and believe it or not, they are even making offers on homes that are off market.  I personally am enjoying not having time to clean my desk , purge my files and update my Facebook page.  If this is any indication of how the year will go, I'm buckling up and getting ready for the ride!
