The answer is YES!! Did you know, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) just released a study showing that bidding wars are at an all time HIGH? That's right. When comparing the first quarter of last year to the first quarter of this year, the number of offers on homes for sale DOUBLED from an average of 2.4 to 4.8 offers. What does this mean? It means that if you are looking for a top-dollar sale, there is no better time than the present. Regardless of the condition you THINK your home is in.
Now, some of you may be wondering about whether or not you'll be able to secure your next home before selling. Fear not, my friends. All of our buyers out there (I see you) have many good reasons to purchase a home of their own (hint hint: to buy before prices continue to appreciate, and not to mention, secure a mortgage at a HISTORICALLY LOW RATE). So... buyer gets what they want, seller gets what they need. There is a WIN-WIN here folks!
Others out there might be thinking, "Well, what if my house has no chance of getting an offer without putting work and updates into it?" Wash away those doubts!! Due to a shortage of homes for sale, studies show that all of my motivated and passionate HGTV-viewers out there are more willing to take on home improvement projects themselves in order to personalize a home of their liking :)
The bottom line here is, selling your home can seem unnerving. However, being that we are living in such a strong sellers' market can bring you the sigh of relief you've been looking for.
