View current market data

In January 2020, there were 14,097 homes on the market compared to 8,863, a drop of 37% to January 2021, year over year. And also in January 2020, average days on the market for homes was 63 days versus 43 in January 2021, an increase of 47%. The market is moving quickly and appreciating fast. We are seeing multiple offer situations making this a great market for sellers but difficult for buyers. 

What if I’m a seller?

Even in such a strong seller’s market it’s still very important to price your home properly. If you’re overpriced, your house may sit on the market for a long time. Having a pre-inspection before listing, and taking care of any issues that come up in that, can go a long way for getting better offers with waived inspections. There’s less hassle and risk once you’re actually under contract.

What if I’m a buyer? 

With so few homes on the market compared to last year, buyers need to be aggressive to get under contract. It isn’t uncommon for homes to receive multiple offers and sell for 5-10% over asking price right now. Plan to offer more terms than just a good price. Those could be: waived inspection, extra down payment in case of a low appraisal, and making your earnest money non-refundable.
