The "Season" Has Come Early...
I know it sounds crazy, but the Spring real estate market has already arrived. Yes, in January! Frustrated buyers from 2019 never stopped looking and homes that are going on the market are selling NOW, often with multiple bids. For sellers with a home that has some 'flaws' that may make them compare unfavorably to competition in Spring (i.e., busy road, a fixer upper, outdated features), this is the perfect time to get on the market as quickly as possible. Buyers, you need to start looking NOW -- don't wait til Spring when other buyers are ALL out; we're not expecting huge jumps in inventory this year, and interest rates remain at historic lows.
