As we enter the 4th quarter of the year (this year has flown by) historically housing sales slow down, especially in an election year, but I don't see this happening in 2020. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this 4th Q is the biggest selling 4th Q in last 10 years. I'm at a point right now where I am sending letters on behalf of my clients looking to buy to owners of homes that are not even on the market as there are not enough homes to meet demand. Who would have thought on March 23rd when the country went into lockdown that the housing market would start to boom? I had a hunch we would be OK but not to this extent.
Earlier this month I received a couple of awards from First Team. It's always nice to have your achievements acknowledged but obviously I couldn't have done it without the great clients like you that I have. For me this business is all about great relationships so please feel free to reach out if you ever have a question no matter how trivial you think it is. I'm happy to be a resource and will always be here for you if you need me.
Also, to all my buyers out there. Please watch this video I did last week on why buyers are losing their dream homes over the price of a cup of coffee. It's shocking to me but oh so common.
Finally, people are shocked when I tell them that homes are selling at higher prices and in a shorter period of time than this time last year. In some neighborhoods there are close to 30% less homes on the market than this time last year, but because interest rates are so low the buyers are out in force. If you have been thinking of selling there is not a better time in my eyes to do it. Give me a call and let's discuss.
