Let’s start with the one of the most common questions our team is hearing as we enter the new year. “What’s the market like right now?” Here is our brief overview to shed some light on the uncertainty being felt in the current real estate market.
Here in the Twin Cities, overall market inventory is low. This is the number of homes currently being offered for sale. There is a 1.7 month supply of inventory. This is actually up 13% from last year at this time. But overall, it is still under what we consider “normal”. So you may be wondering what makes up a seller’s or a buyer’s market? This is strongly set by the actual inventory of homes. Anytime inventory has under a five month supply, we consider it a “seller’s market”. When we reach inventory levels over a six month supply, we consider it a “buyer’s market”. Rarely do we see a completely balanced market.

Do Overpriced Homes Sell?
When pricing your home, consider these 12 points
Experienced buyers who have been looking for a while will know your home is overpriced and won't even look at it
Unscrupulous agents may use your home as a springboard to sell another home with similar accommodation thats priced correctly
The first 30 days is the most important days for your listing, make the most of it to get it sold
The longer your home is on the market, the less the value in the buyers mind (What is wrong with this property?)
Buyers search in price brackets. If your home is priced out of the price bracket, it may never be seen by the right buyer
If there are no or few showings in the first week of hitting the Market, the Market is telling you the property is overpriced
If the Buyers are coming to look at the property and not offering, the buyer is telling you it is overpriced and your home should consider a price improvement.
In today's busy market, pricing your home cor ...
