Property sales across our area are heating up with a growing number of buyers looking for homes in desirable neighborhoods near all the best schools, activities, entertainment, shopping and dining. Well-priced, well-maintained homes are selling quickly, often with multiple offers.
Recent reports in the Dallas Morning News noted that growing demand and shrinking supply are buoying the housing market, and 10 percent of homes are selling within 72 hours of hitting the market. In Southlake, agents from Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty are reporting that homes in the $400,000 to $700,000 price range are often on the market for less than a day.
Of course, getting top dollar for what is often a person’s biggest financial investment takes more than just putting a sign in the yard and flowers on the front porch. Expert advice on showcasing your home’s best assets–from drive-up appeal to creating open spaces where potential buyers can easily envision a new life and important advice on strategic pricing–all help to bring buyers to the table.
With interest rates remaining low and inventory numbers down, now is the perfect time to list a home. Renewed energy in the market means that inventory is low and many homes sell before even showing up in the Multiple Listing Service. Well-connected, experienced agents are able to bring buyers and sellers together quickly to make home buying or building dreams come true.
