STL Real Estate Market Overview indicates Winter Sales Have Merit

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Keller Williams Realty STL
Statistics indicate there are some advantages to buying and selling real estate in the winter months and it can be fun too:
  1. In the winter with the shorter days, you can't ride your bicycle in the evening - so why not look at homes.
  2. In the winter, it's like an adventure when you look at homes in the dark.  You bring a flashlight with you and looking at homes takes on a whole new "feel".
  3. In the winter, it feels so homey to walk in and feel that blast of warm air give your body some relief from the cold of the winter.  (Yes, we are going to get some cold air this year.)

Looking at the current STL stats may also spur both buyers and sellers into action.  Buyers, when you look at the sale price to list price column, it tells you that sellers are more realistic in their pricing which makes it a lot easier to consider making an offer.  Sellers, the inventory is low.  It may be time to make an appointment for a consultation with a qualified real estate professional to discuss the possibilities of listing your home for sale. 

Shown here are the numbers for December 3, 2012 and the numbers for October 27, 2012.  The most telling columns are the months of inventory and the sale price to list price ratio.  At this time we are in a neutral market according to the statisticians - meaning not a buyers market or a sellers market.  The perfect spot to be.

October stats:
I am ready, willing and able to help you in your real estate endeavors.  It's ideal timing for a seller consultation to review the selling process and a great time for buyers to write an offer.  Let's get together.
