Anyone thinking of putting their home on the market should not wait. A seller will always negotiate the best deal when demand is high and supply is limited. That’s exactly the situation in the real estate market today.
Next year, when the pandemic is hopefully behind us, there will be many more properties coming to the market. Don’t wait for that increase in competition in your neighborhood. Now is the time to sell.
PM me and I will send you a free estimate of your home's market value...it'll surprise you!! Take advantage of your equity today!!

Are you on the fence about SELLING your home? Here's three reasons to get off the fence:
1. Higher Prices
With so many more buyers in the market than homes available for sale, homebuyers are frequently entering into bidding wars for the houses they want to purchase.
2. Greater Return on Your Investment
In the latest Homeowner Equity Insights Report, CoreLogic explains:
In the second quarter of 2020, the average homeowner gained approximately $9,800 in equity. Year-over-year growth in equity gives you the ability to put that money toward a down payment on your next home or to keep it as extra savings.
3. Better Terms
When we're in a sellers' market like we are today, you're in the driver's seat if you sell your house. You have the power to sell on your terms, and buyers are more likely to work with you if it means they can finally move into their dream home.
So, is low housing inventory a big deal?
Yes, especially if you want to sell your house at the perfect time. However, it won't last forever, especially as more sellers return to the housing market next year. If you're considering selling your house, the best time to do so is now.
If you're interested in taking advantage of the current sellers' market, let's connect today to determine your best move in our local market.

Sometimes it helps to see the dollars and cents you’ll save when you purchase a home while mortgage rates are low.
Today’s low rates mean it’s less expensive to borrow money, so the savings over the life of your loan is significant.

Let's talk before it's too late!!
Did you know??
A rare blue Halloween moon closes out this month, rising exactly halfway through fall. It's called a blue moon because it's the second full moon in a calendar month. The full Halloween blue moon is a rare occurrence.
Halloween full moons occur every 19 years and it won't happen again until 2039, hence the cliche, "once in a blue moon." Blue moons on Halloween happen only about three or four times in a century!
RETIRED OR THINKING ABOUT IT?
73% percent of retirees currently live in single-family homes. With the overall number of homes for sale today hitting a historic low, and with the buyer demand for single-family homes skyrocketing, there's never been a more ideal time to sell a single-family home and make a move toward retirement. Today's market has the perfect combination of driving forces to make selling optimal, especially while buyers are looking to take advantage of low interest rates.
If you're one of the 73% of retirees with a single-family home and want to move closer to your family, now is the time to put your house on the market. With the pace homes are selling today, you could essentially wrap up your move – start to finish – before the holidays.

Happy National Bow Tie Day!!!
After a 31 year career with Verizon, I recently retired and became a licensed Real Estate Agent at Pearson Smith Realty. That was a big step for me, to start a new career, so I did my homework and found a local brokerage, formed by local people that are highly motivated, creative and automated. Where we all work together as a team, showing customer focus and commitment to deliver value with respect, honesty, and personal accountability. They’re widely noted to be the fastest growing and most innovative brokerage firm in the area.
I’ve been through many moves in my life, and I know the buying AND selling stress it can bring. And having a local agent as your partner, who knows the area and the market, and has a support brokerage like Pearson Smith can only make the whole process easier on you! Sure, some people today look at online services and try to navigate the process without an agent advocate. But smart sellers and buyers want to trust they can reach their agent for answers or help 24 hours a day. Why carry the stress of unknown, when you can have that partner with you on the journey. And that’s what I have to offer you.
With low interest rates and a thriving economy, the housing market is exploding right now. But, the amount of people looking to purchase a house is increasing dramatically, but the amount of people ready to sell their house isn’t reaching the same levels. Days on the market in our area are minimal. So, if you’ve ever considered selling, it’s a perfect time. And if you’re looking to buy, don’t you want a local agent who can quickly find your dream home within your budget?
Is the time right for you? Only you can answer that, but if you are ready, I’d love the opportunity to sit down with you and explore a partnership for the journey.
