Orange County homeowners are playing "Hide n Seek" with local real estate agents. If they would come out to play, the rewards could be great.

Noticing there is a severe shortage of homes for sale, the Orange County Register’s Jeff Collins wrote a compelling article about the current sellers market. 

Collins writes, “For a fourth straight year, listings are below average in Orange County, creating a shortage of homes for buyers to choose from."

Here is a link to the complete story: Page 1 Real Estate in Sunday, May 10, 2015 issue of Orange County Register

The question is, what can we, as real estate professionals, do to show potential sellers that now is a great time to sell? How is the inventory in your market?

We use to ask with interest rates so low and the current downpayment programs available why are buyers sitting on the fence?  Now the question is what is keeping sellers from entering the market?
