Home sales were up this in April as well as prices. The number of homes sold was up by 31 compared to one year ago.
This may be a good time for you to buy while interest rates are still low looks like they are prices heading up this week.
This still holds true, if you want to get your home sold fast price it right. The homes that sell the fastest are priced right to beat the competition right out of the gate, in good locations, and in good condition. The homes that are languishing on the market for many months and those that have expired have tested the waters and they are to cold. Learn from their mistakes and price it right.
If your looking to buy, have your pre-approval in hand so you can make an offer when you find the perfect home. If it’s relatively new to the market be ready to pay full price, maybe even a bit more as the low number of homes for sale, and hungry buyers eager to get a new home is bringing multiple offer situations back to the market.
