As we begin 2022 and we are still in a seller’s market. As mentioned above, typically we see a slowdown of transactions during the winter months. This is still the case, but only due to the extremely low inventory levels. Buyers are still out looking at what homes are available, and bidding them up. It certainly has been interesting to watch. If you’re interested in selling your home, this is still a great time to get it sold, however a smart marketing plan is needed to get you the best price. I’d love to share my marketing plan with you!
