That headline might be a little aggressive; however, as August 2017’s housing market data begins to roll in, we can definitely say one thing: If you are considering selling, IT IS TIME TO LIST YOUR HOME TODAY!
In a recentarticlebyCBS News, they explained that the number of existing home sales is shrinking, and Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist for the National Association of Realtors,said:
“There should be 3 million homes on the market right now…Yet, there are only 1.9 million.”
And this situation will be affected greatly by recent natural disasters. Yun continued by saying:
“Before the hurricanes I would have predicted 1.35 million in new-home construction in 2018…I’ll have to scale that down now.”
“Amid sustained job creation and sustained historically low mortgage rates, REALTORS®reported…that buyer demand is stronger compared to conditions one year ago… and that fifty percent of properties were on the market for less than one month when sold.”
The only challenge to today’s market is a severe lack of inventory. A balanced market would have a full six-month supply of homes for sale. Currently, there is only a 4.2-month supply of inventory, which is down from 4.5 months one year ago.
With demand increasing and supply dropping, this may be the perfect time to get the best price for your home. Let’s get together and discuss the inventory levels in your neighborhood to determine your next steps.

The Aspiring Home Buyers Profile from the National Asso
"David made the home buying process easy. He handled all the behind the scene work and ended up saving me 5,000 and got the price of my dream home reduced from what the seller was asking! He is professional and an excellent communicator and connected with me every step of the way so I always knew what was occurring with my buying process. I was never left in the dark which gave me security through the purchasing experience. I would recommend David to any home buyer!"
