Supply and Demand: Results show January and February are great selling months!

February 5th, 2020
January has started off the year with a bang.  Home sales activity (not to be confused with prices) is WAY up as compared to last January.
Sales were up a whopping 42.4 percent from where they were in January 2019 and 22.1 percent from December 2019. The number of homes for sale in January was 20.1 percent LESS than last January-a good thing for sellers. The number of listings this past Janu ...

Assessed Value vs. Market Value:  Don’t Panic-they are NOT the same!

Sales are up...prices are not...

 

Over the last few months, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the market.  Homes that had been sitting for quite some time suddenly sold; new listings were selling quickly; AND we had 3 homes sell after the first weekend-2 at OVER ASKING and one at FULL PRICE. None of these homes were priced low and all sold at much higher prices than expected. The numbe ...

Market Update: September 2019

The last couple of years have not been great for sellers of real estate....nor for anyone who works in and around real estate! Government interventions have had a significant impact.
