Here’s why now is such a great time to sell your home in our market.

We currently have a dire shortage of homes on the market for sale. While I was studying our market statistics recently, I noticed that we are down to about 20% to 25% of our normal inventory levels for this time of year. We typically have around 2,000 homes available, but we now only have between 500 and 600.

People are flocking here from all over the country, scooping up homes and leaving few options for other buyers. I’ve been advising buyers who are calling me about finding homes here that they need to be ready because homes are selling within hours of being listed. If you’re planning to move to Florida and you want to be ready for this crazy market, be sure to get a strong pre-approval or use cash with proof of funds. When you’re competing with multiple other buyers, the stronger your position, the better off you’ll do.

"These kinds of markets don’t last forever, and homes are selling quickly."

Our market is in desperate need of sellers. If you’re a potential seller, to capitalize on this market and withdraw your valuable equity before the market starts to shift, I strongly recommend that you get your house on the market soon while demand persists. These kinds of markets don’t last forever, and homes are selling quickly. Recently, my team had six closings where each of the properties sold for more than full price with bidding wars, which is just more incentive to sell.

If you’re thinking about selling your home, reach out to us. We’d love to help you get the ball rolling so you can capitalize on this market.
