As we are getting ready to look for Spokane Homes for Sale and get homes ready to sell in Spokane Wa, we have to break one bad habit. That is the habit of thinking things are the same as last year. In a market where you buy and sell, and where supply and demand are at play. Yesterday is gone and if you want to be successful in this market you have to know in what environment you are playing.
Look at the stock market. People monitor it everyday to see how the market environment is and that effects their choices. Yet in real estate people work off of vague memories and shadows of national news stories that many times are not accurate for your local conditions.
We will see a trend as the market gets more competitive, that Realtors will need to know their local conditions more and more to be successful. We already see this in more homes coming on the market and not selling. Your agent needs to know both where we are and where is the trend going to really be able to help you sell your home. Gone are the days of just listing a property and throwing it in the MLS.
So what is the trend for this summer. It's competition. This is not last year. There are more realtors looking for business, more homes trying to sell and a good amount of buyers still wanting to buy. This is what I call a full market. In the shout of buy me, and sell me, your voice has to be heard. In order to do this Sellers can't just pick a Realtor with their head in last years marketing. FSBO's (for sale by owners) will decline this year in my opinion. It's getting competitive and they will not be able to compete like they did a few years ago when any home listed would sell.
