Market Picking Up! Buyers May Want To Pay Attention Here!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite

 Brentwood TN Real Estate

 Recently the movement in my area( Brentwood, Franklin and Nashville TN) has been picking up for the real estate industry. I had a listing go under contract within 2 days and pending within 10. I have had two separate buyers miss multiple homes this last week. Deciding too slowly that they were indeed interested or timing requiring a wait. I remember a couple years ago, when the first day on the market you sent them to see it with the urgent advice that if they liked it we had to move fast. Back when multiple offers came in on that first day and bidding wars were common place. Now, I am not saying that is back, oh no! But, and here is the rub, buyers have become so used to desperate sellers and believing the media hype about how very bad it is and what a buyers market it is, that they are still ambling  along slow and sure. Well sellers seem to be getting a clue, at least some of the time, and prices are looking reasonable. If a home you like is priced right for comps and recent market activity and it is in reasonably good shape, don't wait. Offer now! Things are normally faster paced in spring and this year seems to be shaping up no differently!

Call me now to hear how I can help you find and close your dream home!

Vanessa, this is great news for your area. So much is pricing right and great condition. I've seen many in good condition but the home seller will just not come down to market and they just sit.

Vanessa, I am seeing the same thing happen here both with my Buyer Agents in competing situations and with me getting 2 offers on 2 different listings. YEA !!  But, you are right the buyers are taking too long to make their minds up and are loosing out.

Jan- Yes, i believe that all the denial we have seen the last few months while sellers adjusted to the "buyers" market is coming around and now buyers will have to move a bit faster, at least for now.

Gary- Yes, I have seen quite a bit of that too. It is hard to accept that  what you thought of as asure thing 2 yrs ago is now worth less than you hoped or thought or were told it would be. Those are hard lumps to swallow.

Missy- funny thing is, by the time they get it and change course something else will change. You have to feel for the public, trying hard to do the "smart" thing when being told several different things. I do not think it has to do with foolishness but simply not being sure where to turn for good strong advice.

Vanessa,  Our market is starting to "warm up" and I have numerous prospects, but they keep being hesitant about an offer - it just seems to be taking a little longer for it to sink in,  Karen

I've had two buyers lose out on homes they love in the last two weeks because they thought they should wait! They didn't do it a 2nd time that is for sure!

Vanessa, I'm finding the very same thing. I have, or had a gorgeous house that sat on the market for months. In the course of one week, I had five interested buyers and two of them bid on the same day. It went into a bidding war and the cash deal took the Prize...go figure?? I'm glad it's picking up for you too pretty lady! I wish you nothing but the best of the best! Later in the rain~Deb
