When I’m not busy trying to get my hair to look like Connie Britton’s from the hit show Nashville (pictured), I am selling houses. Lots of them. I don’t think people quite believe me that it’s the absolute BEST time to sell until I list their house and it sells for full price or higher in the blink of an eye. Really. If you are at all thinking of moving, we should’ve met like 7 seconds ago. At this point you may start to realize I like to watch a lot of TV and TV commercials. Any-who, let’s talk about the market.
I think Flo Rida said it best when he mentioned inventory was low, low, low, low. And it really is. The shortage is creating all sorts of side effects including higher prices, frustrated buyers and lack of sales. But its ok, I’ve got a plan. And here it is. If you have ever thought of selling, do it. Now. Phew, problem solved and I feel much better.
I may have just wasted more time thinking of a title than I will spend writing this blog post. That’s ok, as long as it caught your eye and you are now reading this I’ll consider it time well spent. Let’s begin: this market is still hot. Believe it or not, we are going full speed ahead into October and in my little world of real estate there are no signs of slowing down. Here’s how I know.
In my last blog post many moons ago, I mentioned that my next post would be about escalation clauses. So much has happened since then so there’s been a bit of a delay with this post. Ironically, so much of the “so much that has happened” has to do with escalation clauses. Funny. Anyway, a good majority of my last transactions have had multiple offers which have included escalation clauses. Confused yet? And if you could really give a rip about escalation clauses at least skip to the last paragraph.
