Real Estate Update and Fall Things To Do

Is it still a sellers market? How long until the housing market shifts? Am I running out of time to sell my home and earn the best possible value? Should I wait for the market to change before buying? As the summer fades to an end and we start to enter the fall and winter seasons, these are the types of questions we are asked from our clients, customers, friends and family.

In addition to our monthly home sales stats that we normally report on, this month I also want to share some of the key economic predictions from the New England Realtor Committee conference and how they compare to what we are seeing locally. We also sought financing insight from Mascoma Bank SVP Mortgage Sales Manager, Cathy Murray.

Real estate inventory remains low and there are more buyers than available homes.The housing shortage, paired with the low 30-year mortgage rates, lead to eager buyers and a market that is prime for selling. If you have been considering selling your home, or know someone who is, it may be the right time to have a comparative market analysis (CMA) on your home. CMAs are a free service that will provide you with an understanding of your homes value in our current real estate market. Please feel free to call/text us at 603-252-6428 or send us an email today.
