If you thought about selling your house this year, now more than ever  may be the time to do it!  The inventory of homes for sale is well below historic norms and buyer demand is skyrocketing.  We were still in high school when we learned the  concept of supply and demand: the best time to sell something is when  supply of that item is low and demand for that item is high. That  defines today’s real estate market.

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at the National Association of Realtors, recently commented:
“Buyer interest is solid, but there is just not enough supply to satisfy demand. Prospective buyers are being sidelined by both limited choices and home prices that are climbing too fast.”
Yun goes on to say:
“Current demand levels indicate sales should be stronger, but it’s  clear some would-be buyers are having to delay or postpone their home  search because low supply is leading to worsening affordability  conditions.”
In this type of market, a seller may hold a major negotiating advantage  when it comes to price and other aspects of the real estate transaction,  including the inspection, appraisal and financing contingencies.

Bottom Line
