Listing Action Picking Up

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Signature Partners

Well, I have seen a dramatic increase in the number of showings my listings are experiencing this past week.  This is definitely a sign that buyers are beginning to feel that sense of urgency to be under contract prior to the April 30th deadline for the 2 tax credits available to home buyers and owners.  FINALLY!!!  I guess buyers are listening to analysts and getting the feeling that the deadline will not be extended again.  This could be the beginning of a great year for many!  Fingers crossed and I hope for BIG success for everyone in our industry!

Hey Mary, I am glad your showings on your listings are picking up.  Hope that is the case all across the country.

Just today I received 2 showing requests on a home I have listed that has not had showings in quite some time. I'd say you've assessed the market correctly.

The same thing is also happening here on the west coast.
These sub 5% interest rates and great prices will not last long.

Noticed the same thing happening here.  Despite the weather, the buyers wanting to cash in on the tax credit are beginning to feel a sense of urgency.  Hope it lasts.
