While new listings continue to hit the market, there still is an overall shortage of quality properties relative to demand. With prices down and interest rates at all-time lows, there are plenty of buyers searching for their “right” house.
Many tout a “seller’s market,” however those listing homes need to be realistic when pricing them if they want a quick sale. Buyers are well-educated about what the market has to offer, and over-priced listings pile up days on the market (DOM). Another important and oft-forgotten aspect is the appraisal which dictates how much a lender will lend. Buyers may offer a nice high price, but the appraiser uses actual comparable sales and pretty much has the final say as to market value.
Here are some new listings (as described by the listing agents) to check out this weekend:
