Low inventory and increased demand have created a great opportunity for sellers. In the last 2 months we’ve seen quick sales (in less than 2 weeks) in both existing and new construction and across a variety of price ranges. Of course, a quick sale does not happen automatically, and there are some things that Sellers and Realtors can do to reduce time on market.
- Do your homework – Work with a Realtor who understands the local market and knows how to put your listing in front of buyers.
- Be Prepared – Get your home in selling shape BEFORE it hits MLS… you only get one chance for a first impression.
- Price It Right – There is a fine line between priced to sell and overvaluing a home. Make sure your Realtor understands market value and is willing to get you top dollar while making your home attractive to buyers. A win-win is always the goal.
- Be Ready to Move – Stay ready for showings, be responsive to feedback, help your Realtor spread the word, and demonstrate good faith to interested buyers. When you follow these steps, expect great results, and start packing! An active seller and a motivated buyer = SOLD!
