The Time is Now!

Speculation of the current real estate market is a hobby for some and a scary speculative reality for others. After all, this is the biggest purchase of your lifetime. People always apologize to me when they are making their decision and I tell them, "Take your time, it is not like you are buying a candy bar"...but that is just my personality. 

So when is the time? In my opinion, the time is now! Here is why...

I recently attended a summit put on by the WRA and MBA. The featured speaker is an economist from the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders). If you have a home to sell we are right now in the perfect storm. The existing home sales are at their highest numbers in almost a decade. Combine that with existing home inventory being at its lowest in nearly a decade we are seeing a true supply and demand battle. High demand + Low supply = Seller Market. There are outside factors that can and will attribute to this as well. We will talk about that next week. In the meantime, if you want to have a conversation about anything building or real estate related give us a call.
