If you’re a homeowner and have been thinking about selling your home, what are you waiting for? You may not consider 2018 to be your year to sell, but here are few reasons why selling in the next 12 months could be more beneficial than you think.
Buyers are chomping at the bit. Eager homebuyers have been frustrated over the last few years, experiencing low inventory in most major markets, which is pushing them to start home shopping earlier in the year to try to beat out the competition and ensure they’re not missing out on any available properties.
Even before the clock struck midnight on New Year’s, people were already getting a head start on looking at buying or selling a home in 2018. Real estate information company HomeLight saw a 25 percent traffic spike on its website on Dec. 26, with continued high rates of traffic through the first part of the new year.
Interest rates are low … for now. For both the buyer of your home and your own next home purchase, low interest rates can help make a transaction possible. In the second week of January, the average interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 4.17 percent, according to NerdWallet. Mortgage rate averages reached more than 4.4 percent in 2017, but closed the year out just below the current rate.
Homes on the Market is averaging less then 45 days! this mark has more buyers then sellers at this moment which put any property to hit the market a hot item! sellers are seeing more offers coming in on their property averaging from full price to 5% higher then the full price. as a bonus incentive, any listing agreement I receive from March 1st until April 1st, will receive a $500 bonus!!!!
