How to Maximize your Real Estate Benefit

With the lockdowns persisting now into their 5th month, we frequently get asked what the effect has been on real estate.  So, here’s the current State of the Housing Market:

  • People are venturing out.  The number of showings have returned to normal.  While some people are sitting this out, those who aren’t are really getting after it!
  • COVID pent-up demand pushed sales up 28% June over May (and within a mere 3% of June 2019)
  • But NEW LISTINGS WERE UP just 2% from May.  New want-to-be-sellers continue to be a challenge
  • Inventory has fallen to 3,210.  Down from over 8,000 three years ago.  That’s a crazy decline in a “Seller’s Market”

Put those numbers together, and it’s little wonder that PRICES ARE UP 10% from a year ago (to a median average $219,000).  And homes are selling on average for a discount from asking price of just 1.9%.
