Key Takeaway: It’s a Seller’s Market.
With historically low interest rates, low housing inventory, and an increase in homebuyers seeking lifestyle changes, now is the perfect time to sell your home. Sellers who list are seeing their homes sell fast. Current home inventory cannot keep up with the demand, and some homes are getting offers before potential buyers even see the home in person.
