The ebb and flow of the real estate market is fascinating to me and calls into question “timing the market”. What is it about spring that causes people to move into a decision now that they couldn’t make in February? Who knows, but what I do know is now is a very good time to sell if you have the equity to price right. Inventory across several market categories is lower than it has been in a long time and buyers are scraping for good deals. Quick tips - Sellers: be aggressive (low) with your price – you’ll probably get more than one offer and with good terms. The market will bid it up if it is too low. Buyers: move fast. The best deals are done in 2 days – are you prepared to move with lightening speed? If not, it will be hard to lock up the best deals available.
