My two 🪙🪙’s
The market has been showing cracks for the past couple of months. My advice to my buyers is to be ready, be patient, stick to your plan, and when the home you like comes around do not hesitate. To my sellers I advise you price your homes at or slightly below market to sell. The days of over pricing or trying high is over, you are wasting your time. On another note, could we be running into a “too many homes situation”?
