Tight housing inventory has made 2021 a great year to list a home. Low interest rates mean homes are selling quickly and buyer competition remains as strong as it was in 2020. The average home is only on the market 3 weeks.

There are many reasons why Sellers are deciding to move, their house could be too small, there could be a change in family situation or maybe they just want to be closer to friends and family. There is also potential for major equity gains. The average home sold for a median of $66,000 more than what the sellers originally paid for it.

Sellers will continue to hold the upper hand throughout the 2021 market as the number of buyers in the market outweighs the number of homes for sale.

Are you ready to make a move? Now more than ever, even despite the digital age, skilled real estate agents are in high demand. Last year in 2020, 89% of sellers worked with an agent.

A home purchase is typically the largest investment someone will make. If you’re planning to buy a home, an appraisal is an important step in the process, if you are using financing. An appraisal is a professional evaluation of the market value of the home you’d like to purchase. An appraisal is typically ordered by the lender to confirm or verify the value of the home prior to lending you the money to purchase it. When you apply for a mortgage, an unbiased appraisal is the best way to confirm the value of the home based on the sales price. This will help make sure that the bank isn’t lending you more than the home is worth. Appraisals are especially critical in today’s seller’s market where the inventory is so low, it is driving home prices up, resulting in bidding wars. With a market like this, it gives a seller the impression that they can price their house at whatever they want because they are under the assumption that competing buyers will be willing to pay more; but keep in mind, the home still has to appraise and lender will only allow the buyer to borrow based on the value of the home.
