Buying or selling a home in today’s real estate market can be an emotional experience, but it needn't be a trying one.
In the video presented here, REBGV President Darcy McLeod takes a look at the housing statistics for September 2015. In particular, you will see how changes in the supply of homes for sale can impact the market.
The two factors that impact our market most are inventory, and interest rates. With inventory at less than HALF of what we normally see at this time of year, and today's best 5 year rate at 2.54% fuelling the fire of already amazing demand, it makes sellers nervous (if we sell, where will we go ?), and buyers frustrated (we're in Competition, AGAIN ?)
The good news is, we have solutions for you - with over 50 years' experience under our collective belts, we have helped our clients reach their goals in all types of market conditions.
Some basic strategies:
Be ready - we'll walk you through the best way to be organized and ready
for your purchase or sale, so that nothing is a surprise.
Start "Window Shopping" Now - get a comfort level with current inventory & prices, before you post the "For Sale" sign in your yard. You'll feel better having this information.
Leverage our Client Base - we don't just wait for MLS - we have over 700 families that we are in contact with that may have a home that matches your needs.
Consider Personal vs. Market Timing - there are lots of ways to 'massage' dates that are important to you, or the family you are buying from.
Have a "Plan B" - maybe there's an interim rental possibility if the next right home for you is just not out there yet.
When you've made the decision to sell your home or buy a new one, call us and we'll outline an effective plan that takes into consideration all of your needs and goals.
Take advantage of our experience and quality of service through each step of the transaction. Whether you are moving across town or across the country, you can expect the best from us.
