Single-family homes are a hot commodity. And even though the market was severely disrupted by the pandemic, it’s slowly recovering. And as it moves towards a more stable part of 2020 (hopefully), it’s turning into a seller’s market, more than a buyer’s. There are quite a few indicators of that trend.
As you can see, the houses started sitting in the market for fewer and fewer days, following January’s dry spell. The best month so far has been April, but it’s most likely that the trend will continue, and many of the properties will attract buyers as soon as they are listed.
As you can see, most of the sellers in April got closest to their listing price. This is another indicator of a seller’s market, and a strong call for sellers to consider placing their property in the market.
Seller’s Market and 1% Listing
A seller’s market is incentive enough to consider placing your property in the market. Right now, it seems ripe enough for sellers. But if the number of listings keeps increasing and the number of buyers goes the other way, you might lose this golden window of opportunity. That’s especially true for individuals and investors who want to liquidate their assets in the wake of the pandemic.
In a market like this, where sellers are getting the prices very close to what they asked for, and the median property prices are slowly but gradually rising, listing agents are getting their well-deserved piece of the pies. But in such a hot market, why should you stick with giving the whole traditional 6% away to the listing agent, especially in the current era of the internet where most home buyers perform the bulk of their home hunting online.
In times like these, you need to work with the professionals who are changing with the times. Who understands the dynamics and trends of the current market and how modern tools (like virtual tours) can help sellers in fetching their ideal asking price. And the best part, it doesn’t need to be as expensive as it has been for the past many decades.
