#1 Reason to list Your House For Sale, NOW!

If you are debating listing your house for sale this year, here is the #1 reason not to wait!

Buyer Demand Continues to Outpace the Supply of Homes for Sale

The National Association of REALTORS’ (NAR) Chief Economist Lawrence Yun recently commented on the inventory:

Last month’s dip in closings was somewhat expected given that there was such a strong sales increase in March at 4.2 percent, and new and existing inventory is not keeping up with the fast pace homes are coming off the market.

Demand is easily outstripping supply in most of the country and it’s stymieing many prospective buyers from finding a home to purchase”.

The latest Existing Home Sales Report shows that there is currently a 4.2-month supply of homes for sale. This remains lower than the 6-month supply necessary for a normal market, and 4.6% lower than a year ago.

The chart below details the year-over-year inventory shortages experienced over the last 12 months:

Anything less than a six-month supply is considered a “seller’s market.”

Bottom Line:   Let’s get together and discuss the supply conditions in your neighborhood to be able to assist you in gaining access to the buyers who are ready, willing and able to buy now!

Can Your Real Estate Agent Answer These Important Questions?

Whether you are selling or buying a home, the real estate agent you hire is critical to guaranteeing your family makes the right decision. Most agents can walk you through the process and explain the industry ‘lingo,’ but you should expect so much more than that.

The housing crisis made everyone aware that truly understanding the real estate market is more complicated than it seems. Today, there are many questions your real estate agent must be able to answer to ensure your family is making the right decision. Here are just a few:

▪ What impact does the movement in mortgage interest rates have on buyer demand?

▪ With home prices increasing rapidly, are we headed toward another housing bubble?

▪ Do you need a 20% down payment to purchase a home?

▪ Why can’t we list at a higher price and drop it later if necessary?

When you are interviewing an agent to represent your family in your next real estate transaction, make sure they can intelligently answer all your questions, while simply and effectively explaining what is happening in the current housing market.

Meet Our Agents: June Lemmings

In Real Estate Since: 1999

At Sears Real Estate Since: 2011

I believe in going the extra mile for my clients to help them not only find the perfect home, but to successfully transition into the community.

Through my experience with Buyers, Sellers and Investors I understand the unique challenges presented with each clients’ real estate needs, as well as with the current market.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Northern Colorado, Greeley, Loveland and Fort Collins real estate professional, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

When you decide that you’d like to buy or sell a home in the Northern Colorado area including Greeley, Loveland, Fort Collins and surrounding small town areas, please contact me at 970-388-3692 or June@SearsRealEstate.com

I consider Northern Colorado my home—I love this community and enjoy being a cheerleader and a champion for Greeley, Colorado and the surrounding areas!

The transactions will happen, the money will come, the success will be there. But, the people have to be first.
