Dear Friends & Neighbors,
Happy New Year! We hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season.
It’s hard to believe that the decorations are barely packed away, there is still snow on the ground, and that the real estate market is already heating up!
As we experienced in 2016, there continues to be low inventory, yet Buyers are coming out in full force. Houses that we saw sitting on the market for weeks over the holidays, suddenly had multiple offers after the first of the year. We are starting to see houses going under contract within the first few days, and we are once again beginning to experience the fast paced, competitive market we saw last spring. This, coupled with the low inventory, makes it a great time to sell.
Buyers are rested and re-energized after a sleepy late fall and holiday season. They are ready to buy once again and waiting for the right house to come up. We believe that this indicates another hot spring for Sellers, and competitive buying season for Buyers.
We look forward to having the opportunity to assist you in buying or selling your home in 2017. Please give us a call and let us know how we can help.
