4 Reasons You Should Consider Selling This Fall

Reasons You Should Consider Selling This Fall

If you're trying to decide when to sell your house, there may not be a better time to list than right now. The ultimate sellers' market we're in today won't last forever. If you’re thinking of making a move, here are four reasons to put your house up for sale sooner rather than later.
1. Your House Will Likely Sell Quickly
According to the Realtors Confidence Index released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), homes continue to sell quickly – on average, they're selling in just 17 days. As a seller, that's great news for you.
Average days on market is a strong indicator of buyer demand. And if homes are selling quickly, buyers have to be more decisive and act fast to submit their offer before other buyers swoop in.
2. Buyers Are Willing To Compete for Your House
In addition to selling quickly, homes are receiving multiple offers. That same survey shows  ...

5 Reasons Today’s Housing Market is Anything But Normal

      Everyone asks me, "how's the market?" Real estate is fascinating and we have never experienced a more unusual market! In this email I will share national information and local market information where applicable. Please call me if you have any questions or love graphs and I'll send them!
There are many headlines out there that claim we’re reverting to a more normal real estate market. That would indicate the housing market is returning to the pre-pandemic numbers we saw from 2015-2019. But that’s not happening. The market is still extremely vibrant as demand is still strong even while housing supply is slowly returning.
Here’s the definition of normal from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
“conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern: characterized by that which is considered usual, typical, or routine.”
Using this definition, here are five housing industry metrics that prove we’re nowhere near normal.
1. Mortgag ...

Don't Wait To Sell Your House

We’re in the ultimate sellers’ market right now. If you’re a homeowner thinking about selling, you have a huge advantage in today’s housing market. High buyer demand paired with very few houses for sale makes this the optimal time to sell for those who are ready to do so. Whatever the move you want to make looks like, here’s an overview of what’s creating the prime opportunity to sell this summer.
High Buyer Demand

Demand is strong, and buyers are actively searching for homes to purchase. In the Realtors Confidence Index Survey published monthly by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), buyer traffic is considered “very strong” in almost every state. Homebuyers aren’t just great in number right now – they’re also determined to find their dream home. NAR shows the average home for sale today receives five offers from hopeful buyers. These increasingly frequent bidding wars can drive up ...

3 Things To Prioritize When Selling Your House

Today’s housing market is full of unprecedented opportunities. High buyer demand paired with record-low housing inventory is creating the ultimate sellers’ market, which means it’s a fantastic time to sell your house. However, that doesn’t mean sellers are guaranteed success no matter what. There are still some key things to know so you can avoid costly mistakes and win big when you make a move.
1. Price Your House Right
When inventory is low, like it is in the current market, it’s common to think buyers will pay whatever we ask when setting a listing price. Believe it or not, that’s not always true. Even in a sellers’ market, listing your house for the right price will maximize the number of buyers that see your house. This creates the best environment for bidding wars, which in turn are more likely to increase the final sale price. A real estate professional is the best person to help you set the best price ...

Can We Say Roasty, Toasty Market?

So many of my Flamingo buyers are loving amenities and flocking to the Bridges communities! I'm watching the numbers everyday and can we say roasty, toasty market over on the west side? As of this moment there are a total of 12 resale homes available and 34 pending sales. What does that mean? Based on pending sales we have about 2 weeks of inventory. It's supply and demand. 

Seven Bridges
For Sale 3
Pending 16

The Bridges
For Sale 9
Pending 14

Boca Bridges Resale (New Homes still Available - Call me!)
For Sale 0
Pending 4

Prices seem so high and my buyers ask me how much should homes cost in the Bridges communities. I can't give a blanket answer because it depends on so many factors which include size, age, style, view, etc. Another important question is in which collection is the home located? All of the Bridges communities have four collections priced from entree through premium. How close the home is to 441, Lyons, or the Turnpike matters, too.

How a home i! ...
