Well, we are all gearing up for the "Spring" market and I have to say the buyers are certainly out here in Monmouth and Ocean Counties in Central New Jersey. A slight problem is the local sellers seem to be waiting to list.
I'm not sure what's going on but inventory is definitely low and we are seeing multiple offers and bidding wars in our Board. There are still many, many short sales in our inventory and most buyers do not want to get involved with them.
Properties that are not short sales and that are in decent condition are getting lots of activity. If they are in move in condition and are priced correctly they are selling in no time at all.
We need to get the folks who are planning to sell "in the summer" to get on board and let us start marketing their houses now! Let us help them to make the deal and get them to where they need to be in the time frame they want.
Dear Seller: Invite me in so that I can help you plan your sale and get you to where you want to go!
Good luck everyone!
