 The stats are out for the month of December, and sales this time of year do slow down seasonally, and the stats support that.   As of mid-January, we are still experiencing low inventory (hovering around 1,500 on weekends), down 64.7% over one year ago. I have had potential Sellers who want to list and buy, but are fearful of not finding a replacement home, so they will stay put, or wait until they see more inventory.   But when they do list, they sure are seeing a great bottom line!   Multiple offers are still happening, just not at the same pace, as we saw earlier this year.  With only around 1,500 listings available on the weekends, we are seeing fewer price reductions each week also.   The inventory generally picks back up after the New Year.This data is courtesy of Joan Cox - Hous...

Even though homes are selling lickety-split, there are still items that if WE (Seller and me) work together on, this will ensure lots of showings, and better - multiple offers above list price!    It is expected to see interest rates increase at least twice, and have heard maybe even three times this year, so if the market slows, marketing and preparation of the home are imperative!     I will walk your home to give a homeowner ideas of how to present the home and possible repairs that may need to be done prior to listing.   Buyers either want a total fix-up property or move-in ready.    Some items will result in a higher bottom line, some items will make the home more desirable. Putting a home on the market is definitely more than putting a sign in the ground, and together the homeowne...
