A. My clients are most concerned about where they’re going to live if they sell their home. Considering the low inventory of homes for sale, many people don’t want to put their home on the market if they don’t already have a place lined up. And other concern, potential sellers like to wait out the market – to see if they can get an even better price. But, we live in a great market. It’s always a good time to sell. 214.537.5923 |

A: They want to know when to list so they can get the best return on their investment. The answer is that these winter months leading up to the traditionally busy spring market are the time to list your home. Historic statistics show that the supply of homes for sale spikes in the springtime. So listing then would multiply your competition for buyers. Right now, you can focus on relocation buyers – because anyone looking now is serious about buying. 214.536.8680 |

A: What sellers want to know right now is when is the right time to list. I think the answer is now. Buyers are out, taking advantage of low interest rates; and they want to buy before prices go any higher. And the inventory of homes for sale is still low in many popular neighborhoods, bringing days on the market down across the board. All of that has created an amazing environment for sellers in our region. 817.781.7060 |

A: The potential sellers we have spoken to fear that they will not be able to find a home to purchase after selling. And it’s true that the Dallas market is still experiencing a low inventory of homes for sale – especially in the most desirable neighborhoods. But, with inventory still coming on the market, we have consistently been able to find wonderful new homes for all of our selling clients. 214.755.8180 |
