How is the Fort Wayne real estate market?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Christiansen Group Realty (260)704-0843

In our 22 combined years in real estate, we can't remember when the housing inventory has been so low.  


It's great for our sellers, no doubt.  


It's TOUGH for buyers out there in our market.  


We sent a new listing (1 day on the market) to one of our buyers yesterday.  


The listing agent called and said they already have 19 showings scheduled in the next 12 hours.  


Our buyer wasn't able to get in there due to their schedule.  


It was pending within four hours.  


We're super flexible and can take short notice showings for our buyers and will do whatever we can to help, but it's so tough right now.  


For our sellers?  Different story.  


We prepare our sellers for the same scenario.




Odds are it's going to be chaos once we put your home live. 


It's great for you as a seller and you'll have us leading you every step of the way. 


We've seen so many offers over asking price. 


The only thing we've had concerns with are appraisals, but even those have been up and supported the purchase price, even when the numbers come in higher than what the seller is asking. 


The is going on all around the country and we're definitely seeing it here in Fort Wayne. 


We'll guide our buyers and do our best to educate them and write strong offers as needed. 


We'll guide our sellers on what to expect and hold their hands through the process as well.  


It's a crazy market out there right now but we've been through it before.  


Call us at 260-704-0843 if you'd like a pressure free conversation about your needs, whether you're buying or selling.  


Then, when it's time to go, you'll feel the pressure but you have us.

It is a crazy market for most of us. Keep thinking we're going to catch a break, but the extreme sellers market just keeps on going.  Hope you are looking forward to a productive, and enjoyable, weekend. D
