What is Happeining in the Real Estate Market?
The current Regional Multiple Listing Service's Market Action Report is out and the market is continuing to move. We saw a slight cooling off compared to July, but the market remains strong according to the RMLS. The average sale price so far this year is $398,800 up from the same time period in 2012. We are currently at 3.7 months of Inventory! Some homes are still receiving multiple offers, this is not the time to sit on the fence with your home buying decision. You must be prepared to act fast but also know how much you are willing to pay for a home. The homes that are priced right and look good are selling in days, not weeks. Make sure when you are making an offer on a home that this is the home for you and your family. Many buyers are being caught up in a frenzie to buy a home, then they back out, because the home isn't right for them. The Seller has lost precious time and buyers when this happens. Take time to make sure. At the same time some Seller's are finding that they are getting more for their homes, if they take the time to pre-pare the home for selling.
Don't miss out on this great opportunity to position yourself to buy or to sell your home. The time to take action is now and the choice should be yours! Interest rates continue to remain low! Interest rates can't stay this low for ever. Rental prices continue to increase and now are outpacing monthly mortgage payments for some. Call me when you are thinking of moving!
Check out the current Market Action Report located on the left side of my website.
This will give you the latest number for houses sold and average and median prices for the greater Portland Metro Areas from the Portland Metro Regional Multiple Service.
THINKING ABOUT SELLING? READ THIS
In today's real estate market, timing, condition and price are everything, you must be ahead of the market in order to sell your home. By this I mean you can not price your house according to what you think it is worth, you must look at the market and compare everything. Be realistic in pricing your home, you do want to sell, right?
You must be ready to sell! Have you detached from your home? Have you started to declutter your home? Clearing out what you no longer need is a great place to start. If you have things you just can't part with rent a storage unit and move the excess into it until it comes time for your new home. Start now and prepare your current home for the next owner! Take a look at Better Homes and Gardens - Declutter, Declutter, Declutter.
Buyers, many good homes are sold before they are ever advertised. If a home is ready to sell we are now seeing multiple offers coming in. Are you ready to raise your offer to get the home you want? Don't hesitate in making an offer on a home if it's the one for you! A pre-approval letter from a lender, is a must to make an offer! If you are not currently working with a lender, please contact me immediately and I can provide you with a couple of trusted lenders to choose from so you can get started on your home buying experience.
