It is a sellers market, theres no doubt about it!
Lack of for-sale signs in front yards are driving residential home prices higher according to MBA (Mortgage Bankers Association). Inventory is at historically low levels and demand for housing skyrocketing in most markets.
In the last five years, homes have risen about 40%. We’re also starting to see pocket listings. That is where agents tell their friends or officemates about a listing so it can be sold without ever hitting the general market. And with this more home sellers seem to be trying to sell on their own.
2018 is the best time for sellers to sell because buyers are getting restless with the low inventory and know that they need to act quick. Bidding wars are happening…. so realistically you might get full price if not above asking for your home.
