The rise in the average sales price is good news for underwater owners and for today’s sellers, however prices are not back to the highs we experienced before the housing bubble burst.  Unfortunately local sales have slowed because not enough new listings are popping up to grab buyers and fence sitting potential sellers tend to delay putting their property on the market until after the holidays.  So if you are waiting until January to sell the black and white message is very clear- buyers are buying now and interest rates remain at a historic low.  If you’re serious about selling-now is the time to list!

If you’re not sure about sale prices each neighborhood and home has unique characteristics- send a request for a market evaluation.
