More and more homes coming on the market

After many months of low inventory in our area, Radnor, Tredyffrin and Easttown townships in Pennsylvania we are seeing an abundance of homes being placed on the market. Amazingly in our area we are also seeing a large number of homes for sale by owners.

So what sells a home?

There are many things that sell a home, pricing it right, preparing it for sale correctly, maintenance of the home, having the correct paperwork prepared, and marketing of the home correctly. It is a combination of all of these not just any one of them. Dropping the ball in one can hinder and slow down or even prevent a sale. Buyers are still very particular and even with a low inventory there are plenty of stories of buyers walking away from from properties that have issues at inspections that can not be negotiated or resolved.

More agents are holding Sunday Open Houses as well as other days and evenings because we have been seeing a lot of buyers looking on their own before finding an agent to represent them. Sellers also believe the agent is doing more by holding Open Houses and is more involved in the selling of the property.

But these last few weeks with summer approaching, even with these low temperatures this week, we are seeing more houses come on the market as this is the time of year to sell.

But remember, it is a combination of those points above that will sell your home, so if you are considering selling in the near future find an agent who knows how to market and can advise you correctly on what sells a home.

Ours is the same type of situation. We are seeing many more homes coming on the market, with a few of those being FSBO's. I think a lot of these sellers are hoping to catch the buzz that the lower interest rates is creating on the market. Your points are very valid. I hope someone in your market takes note of your expertise there and gives you the call.
