As we move on into spring, sellers continue to enjoy a strong seller’s market, and buyers face increased competition.
All stats below are based on End of Month in January vs February:
Homes on the market – 3,092 vs 2,841 (down 8%)
Average sales price: $352,285 vs $352,277 (pretty much the same)
New homes on the market – 3,542 vs 3,757 (up 6%)
Homes sold – 2,940 vs 2,991 (up 2%)
The market needs sellers desperately right now. There is no better time to sell. With iBuyers coming in with extremely competitive offers, selling your home has never been easier. You will more than likely get over asking for your home due to demand. Buyers are getting increasingly more frustrated with the market, and many people are finding it easier to sell, rent, and then buy so they do not overpay for their new home.
It is more important than ever to make sure you’re listing your home at the right price. Most sellers can expect to have multiple offers to choose from after just one weekend of being on the market. The seller’s market is strong but won’t last forever, so get on the market as soon as possible, now that interest rates have started to rise.
