Closed is the column to look at.  These are actual numbers.  New listings can be relisted and contracts accepted can have an issue come up and go back on the market.  Look how low we are with new listings even though more homes have closed this year.  If you are wondering why agents are knocking on your door or you are getting something in the mail it is because of the buyers out there with nothing to look at.  If you are thinking about selling now is the time.

Check back with us every Saturday for the market update.  At the end of each month I will compare it to the previous 2 years so you can see how this year is going.

If you are thinking about selling this year request a home valuation so we can let you know what your home is worth in today’s market.  We will provide you with a net proceeds that shows you the expenses to sell.  This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms.

Thinking about buying a home this year?  Talk with a loan officer first to get prequalified.  Get all your information together and keep it in a folder to keep handy.  They will provide you with a letter showing what type of loan and what price works out best for you.  When you find a home this will go with your offer to show the seller that you do qualify for their home.
