Summer is Here - Is Real Estate slowing down?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Godzyk Real Estate Services NH License 033394

We are socked in the first heat wave of the year. But is Real Estate staying hot or cooling down as Summer kicks off? Here in the Manchester NH area the spring market arrived late. But soon we were flooded in new spring listings. Buyers were ready and jumped all over the new inventory.


We saw a trend that homes priced at market value went under contract pretty quickly. Those over priced are still lingering around. There is talk of the market slowing as July arrives. However as in any year, Spring is a busy time of year for home sale. Summer does slow as the large new inventory that went under contract closes.


Summer does see a steady flow of new listings that buyers seek. Buyers with school age children face the pressure to choose a home sooner than later in order to close before school starts again in September.


The time to list is now. Buyers are here, ready, willing and able to buy. Those looking to buy, should get pre qualified now and start the process before rates increase again. You have more buying power with a lower rate for sure. 


The MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest.

Good morning Scott. It only slows down if you do. And, you are not one to slow down. Enjoy your day

Good Morning Scott Godzyk 

It's Real Estate as usual. It has its peaks and valleys. Each season is what we make of it.

Good morning, Scott.... not too different here and as long as a home is priced right, staged right and marketed right it sells regardless of weather.

Exactly Nina Hollander but there s a huge increase in sellers who want to over price homes these days. They lose valuable time in the end

You're so right Scott. Buyers are here and are ready, willing and able to buy. So, listing now is a good idea!

The summer is already slipping by, isn't it Scott?  Time is of the essence to get closed before another school year starts.  Have a safe and fun 4th.

I'm still having difficulty wrapping my head around the idea that we have entered the second half of 2018.

Scott- buyers will buy when they need to. The best thing a seller can do now is to hire an agent such as yourself who can educate them on their market and what they need to do.

Scott market doesn't slow down here over the summer. It's heating up outside and buyers are buying home. Still seeing multiple bids.  Happy summer!

Hi Scott Godzyk - Historically, our market slows in July and August... It's vacation time!  Our hottest market is late winter, spring, and fall.

Morning Scott.

Haven't noticed it much around here.  Some agents are taking vacations, thus their business slows a little.
