June was the most active month so far this year across the board with new listings, closed and contracts accepted.  All signs look like 2022 will be similar to this year.  Prices might not go up as fast as they did this year.  Until more homes are built or commercial property converted to residential purposes inventory will not increase.  There just is not enough homes for the need.

Thinking about selling your home in the near future?  Request a home valuation and give us a little information about your  home and what has recently been updated.  We will let you know what it 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.  If you are planning on waiting until after the first of the year.  We can update closer to when you are ready.

You might want to plan ahead if you are thinking about buying a home and are wanting to do that by a certain date.  You will need to get all your financial information together and get it to a loan officer if you haven’t already done that.  You need to get pre approved.  They will give you a letter after they are completed that shows what type of loan and how much you qualify for.  This will go with an offer when you find a home.


You will want to check with your loan officer for the rates that they are currently offering with your credit score.
