With a significant shortage of inventory, our real estate market continues to be challenging for buyers. It is not uncommon for new listings to receive multiple offers! Often the offers are significantly over asking price; and we are seeing more and more cash offers which are hard to beat. Buyers should plan to be patient with themselves—and their Realtor! It may take writing a few offers before being successful in securing just the right home.
Thinking of selling in 2018? This looks to be another excellent year to sell. Let us help you maximize your sale!
Thinking of buying in 2018? Let us help you navigate this crazy market! Inventory is still limited and demand remains strong for most segments of the market.
This is going to be a very interesting year for real estate sales in our area. It is a great time to buy with mortgage rates so low; and indeed the buyers are lining up and ready! What we’re currently missing is enough “inventory” or homes for sale, to meet the demand. Prices are starting to tick up. In some ways this is not all bad. Look at how the Portland market has exploded, however… locals are being priced out of the market. Not good.
2016 will be an excellent year for most sellers. If you are considering selling, give us a call!

It has gotten so proper staging of homes for sale is almost crucial for a speedy sale, and top dollar. Staging might mean working with your own furnishings, or it might mean renting furnishings for a vacant house. In any case, well-staged homes often net 5% or more and sell quicker. The photos online are more appealing, for sure!
Many are asking… “What is the state of our current local market?” Although I am seeing the average and median prices up-tick slightly, and properties selling at a healthy rate, the market is not crazy-good. It is simply much stronger and consistent than in recent years. If you are selling, and you price right and stage well, you should sell well. If you are buying, be prepared to pay near asking prices for homes well-priced!
