2021 market update week 1

2021 market update week 1.  It is the first full week of 2021.  New listings of single family homes almost doubled this week.  136 this week compared to 73 the week before.  Now that we are past the holidays things should get rolling along.

Closed single family homes this week were slightly down.  167 this week compared to 178 the week before.  Not too bad for the first week of the year.  Last week buyers were trying to get closed before the end of the year.

Thinking about selling your home this year?  Request a home valuation and give us a little information about your home.  What updates you have recently completed and when you would like to get your home on the market.  We will provide you with a net proceeds that shows you an estimate of expenses to sell.  This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms so you can make a good decision.

If you are thinking about buying a home this year you will need to get some things together and contact a loan officer to get prequalified.  2 years of tax returns, pay stubs, bank statements, car payment information, credit card information and any other monthly expenses. Keep them in a folder.  You will need to probably send this information again once you apply for a loan when you find a home.  You will be given a letter from your loan officer showing the type of loan and price that you qualify for.  We will need to send this with an offer when you find a home.
