Interesting Statistics for Sellers in the Cecil County Real Estate Market

Having just reviewed today's statics (even though the March official numbers are not yet available). I thought it was striking that for the 3rd month in a row Active Listings in Cecil County remained right around 840. This is the time of year that we historically see a dramatic increase in the number of homes coming to market to take advantage of the Summer Selling Season. This should help stabilize prices as there will be less inventory for buyers to choose from. For those sellers who have been frustrated, this may show a glimmer of hope for their prospects. For those Sellers who have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for inventory to clear out....It may be time to put that property on the Market. Just a word of Warning.....Don't OVERPRICE! If you want to just "Give it a Try" at some high price....Do Yourself a Favor and wait till the market turns again....Then Try.....Not Now.....
