senior home maryland: 5 Reasons You Should Sell Your Leisure World Home This Fall! - 10/01/18 12:59 PM
5 Reasons You Should Sell Your Leisure World Home This Fall!
Here are five reasons why listing your home for sale this fall makes sense.

These buyers are ready, willing and able to purchase…and are in the market right now! In fact, more often than not, multiple buyers end up competing with each other to buy the same homes.
Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.
2. There Is Less Competition Now Housing inventory is still under the 6-month supply needed for a … (0 comments)
