Why You Should Sell Now

July 19, 2013 |  Article By :   | 

9043039_sMany homeowners are wondering, “Why sell now”? If the market is getting better shouldn’t we wait? Right now is a great time to sell for many reasons. Some of the better reasons are:

  • Sales prices have increased 14.5% in the past year, so you will get more for your home.
  • Traditional homes sold in just 68 days for 97.7% of their original list price in June 2013.
  • Interest rates are on the rise, right now they are at around 4.5%. The higher they go, the less home buyers can afford.
  • Inventory is still very low but starting to increase slightly. There are 17.2% fewer homes for sale than in June 2012 but 17.4% more than in January 2013.
  • School will be starting again soon and many buyers want to be moved in before the new school year starts, so they need to buy now.
