HouseKat to future sellers in Monroe NY: Your house needed!

Dear Monroe NY Future House Seller:

 

Although any time you need to sell is a great time to list your home, right now buyers in Monroe NY have slim pickings. As can be seen by the below graph, inventory has significantly declined, and while only the last year is shown on this chart, with the exception of one month in early 2014, inventory levels haven't been this low in five years.

 

 

So what does this mean to you? It means there are serious buyers out there who may be unsuccessfully looking for a house just like yours. They could be waiting to pounce. Which could mean shorter time to sell and higher prices. Don't wait to find out! 

 

If you've been considering selling, give me a call on 914-419-0270 to discuss your home as it relates to the local market. I'd be happy to assist you!

Kat Palmiotti You are just too efficient when it comes to selling the available inventory. Hence the reason why your choices are so few. Take a day or two off; smell the roses!

Wow, that is some low inventory. We have 885 homes for sale in Gilbert as of this morning which is a few hundred below where we usually are.

Same here in the Charlotte area, Kat... and then some for quite a long while now. The problem is that sellers are worried they won't find a new home to move into and are holding off listing. It's a vicious cycle.

Nina - It sure is; then once they start, I bet the market switches the other way -- too much inventory!

Janis - I've noticed that homes that have been on the market a long time, just languishing, are all of a sudden moving. It's definitely time to get some fresh stuff out there.
