I know it’s cold, and probably a lot more snow coming, but February is the month that the Spring Real Estate Season starts. It has been this way for the last 2-3 years. Why?  Because  Sellers want to hopefully get out there 1st and snag the buyers who have been looking for the past 4 months. As I have said before, There is No best season to buy or sell, though most of the public think Spring is the only season that you should list or buy a house. Remember,  Spring brings out the most sellers so you have fierce competition in selling your home and the Sellers may have to price the house down to sell. Also Spring brings out a Lot of Buyers, so there is competition for each house forcing a buyer to Bid Up. It is a Very Interesting Dynamic to watch as it occurs.

Some Sellers are again starting to overprice their houses. There was a fairly  large increase in prices in 2017, and I would expect a modest increase this year. Sellers think they can  overprice early on and drop the price later, but they lose a lot of buyers this way – buyers who won’t come back 3-4 months after the house was listed.

It should be another good selling and buying season. We still don’t know the full effect of the new Tax law on Sellers and Buyers habits – we will have a better idea around April. Inventory is still extremely low right now, so if you are thinking of selling, now is the time to get your house on the market.

Stay Warm.
