What Other Trends are We Noticing? ● Homes are being listed at strategically low prices ►So properties are selling above list price ►Base your offer price on comps & trends – NOT on list price ● Deadlines are being set to accept & review offers ►Sellers usually review offers after about 7-14 days on market ►To give property exposure and create buzz amongst buyers ● Some buyers are waiving their contingencies in order to make their offers more attractive to the seller Slide 12 of 23
  13. 13. What to do? ● Go see the home as soon as you can! ►First couple days on market ● Homes that are priced well, and move-in ready, may sell in days. ● Expect to be up against multiple offers (5-10+), some cash offers ● Get pre approval early on Slide 13 of 23
