Bottom Line: While median list and sold prices have increased since the new year; active listings - that is homes that are on the market in May, is down by over 43%, a staggering number. We’re in new territory with the current factors that are driving the market and there are two ways to look at this: (1) take a “wait and see” attitude to evaluate when the market returns to normal OR (2) if other sellers are removing or postponing listing their house, your home has a better chance of rising to the top of a buyer's search list and being seen. Keep in mind, most sellers are only planning to delay the process by a couple of months. If you need to sell soon, don't wait for the competition to get back into the market again.
