Busy as a Bee!
As you know I held an open house this past Sunday. It was my first one since the beginning of the year. While a lot of Realtors do not like to hold open houses, I love to. I get to spend a few hours showing off a great home, talking to people about real estate. Helping them learn more about the real estate market and how to make the right decisions when it comes to buying or selling a home.
This past Sunday was crazy busy. I was at the open house for three hours and it was non-stop people. Depending on the price range, the lower the price, more activity you tend to get. The home for sale in Folsom priced at $599,000 would be considered a bit higher than average. There were people following me in from putting my open house signs out! I was talking about real estate for the whole three hours(and loved it).
I met a lot of people who are looking for the right home and are having a difficult time of it because of our low inventory. Some have offers on short-sales and of course, don’t know if it will be successful or not.
If you are thinking of selling your home anytime in the next year, I believe you should be on the market now. There is low inventory, we have the first time (and repeat buyer’s) tax credit and interest rates are low. And lots of buyers looking for that perfect home.
