Homes Sell Faster as Inventory Becomes More of an Issue in Greater Boston

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Boston - Metro

strong manA recent Boston Herald article on home sales for the Greater Boston area hints to the possibility that the market in Greater Boston is off to a quick start with low inventory. Further many agents within Keller Williams Realty Boston-Metro are reporting that this has resulted in property being put undergreement in days not weeks or months and that buyers need to react quickly. Is it possible that many sellers finally get it (pricing their homes to sell as opposed to pricing high for room to negotiate)

I agree it works that way here in the California Central Valley as well.  Just let a buyer lose a bid because they were a little low.  They will bring up the next offer without a fight!!!
