With this very small number of homes on the market, sellers have much more ability to ask for a price they want (it still needs to be reasonable, as always) and get it, and with the best terms possible. Having the stronger market position as compared to buyers gives home seller’s the better negotiating position. More strength.

If you would like more information or a free market valuation of your home, please contact us. We can do it within 24 hours. Have a great day!
