What Do You Mean It's Sold?  It Just Came On The Market Yesterday!

This seems to be the weekly conversation I'm having with Omaha home buyers.  It's been a buyer's market for such a long time that it is hard for many buyers to understand that in a seller's market homes are selling FAST. Some Omaha subdivisions are selling faster than others. 

Take for example, the Huntington Park Omaha neighborhood in Northwest Omaha.  There are currently six pending homes for sale. Would you be shocked to learn that the average days on market for these six Huntington Park Omaha Homes for sale is:


That's right, all six homes got an accepted offer on their Huntington Park home in an average of two days. How does that compare to Omaha's average days on market?  2 days versus 67 days. If you are interested in purchasing real estate in Huntington Park, I'd recommend you move quickly.

The Top Three Ways to Avoid Missing Out On A Home for Sale in Huntington Park are:


1.  If you are looking to buy a home in Huntington Park and don't want to hear the home is already sold, make sure you are checking the new homes on the market daily.  Never miss out on a home again!  Sign up to receive an email notification as new homes come on the market here:  http://www.goomahahomesforsale.com/registration/   


2.  Be ready to move quickly when you find your home. The best way to do this is to keep yourself updated on the market so when your perfect home comes available, you'll already have a good idea of the home's value in today's real estate market. Check out this website http://www.goomahahomesforsale.com/cp/housing-market/ for information on Omaha housing market data and this site here http://www.goomahahomesforsale.com/mimarket/zip/68116/ for information on housing information in the 68116 zip code.  


3.  Hire a Realtor to represent your best interests.  Buyer's represenation in the state of Nebraska doesn't cost you anything.  The Seller has a real estate agent looking out for their best interests, don't you think you should, too?

It seems to be happening all around the country.  We have increased our automated updates to 2 times a day so our clients are getting the latest information when it pops.

That's exactly right Trisha.  Unfortunately, I see a lot of buyers who miss out on not one but several homes because they don't understand that.

Cindy, I'm starting to set client updates to real time instead of once a day.

What I have started to see is listing agents selling the property themselves before it is even on the market. Tough to compete and is that really in the best service to the seller?

Connie:  In many market areas the market is HOT.  Two days does not surprise me.  A year ago it would have been unheard of.  Now... just the reverse.  Buyers better be ready to act.
