I get asked all the time, “Are you selling any houses?”.
Over the past several weeks, I have talked a lot about low interest rates and the low inventory in our housing market with people. Which is still the case! But the question it always comes down to is, “Are you selling any houses?”. This question usually translates to “Is the market good?”. The simple answer is YES, but it looks a little different to everyone depending on what your real estate goals are.
If you are interested in selling your home, buyers are moving quickly. However, this looks a little different than it used to. Buyers are looking for clean, ready to move in homes they don’t have to put a lot of work into. When I’m selling a house, the biggest thing I tell my clients is “Make sure your house is clean!”. The cleaner, the better!
In turn, if you are a buyer willing to put in some extra work, there are deals to be made! If you are willing to clean, repaint, maybe put a little flooring in, there is more room for negotiating.
Investors, if after the past six month you have the resources to invest, now is a great time! You can make good deals on triplexes, duplexes, and even single-family rentals right now. There is a lot of market space for those.
So, YES! I am selling homes. I could talk for hours on this subject, so if you have any question, please reach out. I would be happy to assist you in reaching your real estate goals!
