There Are Not Enough Homes For Sale

Many homeowners weathered the storm of the housing market crash a few years ago. Things have improved dramatically, but sellers seem to still be hesitant to list their home. If you’ve been waiting for the market to recover before selling your home – wait no longer! Seriously, there are buyers ATTACKING houses for sale as soon as they hit the market (especially good homes that are priced right). It’s a virtual feeding frenzy! Pending contracts are up.

Less Cash Buyers for Homes

Cash sales seemed almost standard a few years ago. In 2011 over 40% of sales were to cash buyers! Many of these sales were to investors looking to buy & hold rental property or fix & flip it. Being an agent and investor I can tell you in 2011 it was hard to NOT get a good deal on a house.. some were almost unbelievable. Today, cash buyers for homes is down closer to 25% – which is about where it was in 2000. These days it’s harder to find deals for fixing & flipping or holding as rentals. The...

Want to Sell a House Fast?

For years I’ve used “SELL your house..FAST!” as a tag line for my house buying business. While in many cases that’s still the quickest way to sell, listing a home (at the right price) is not lagging too far behind these days. In May 45% of homes sold in LESS THAN A MONTH! Georgia is averaging 31-45 days on market (DOM), but I can tell you if you have a good home you’re looking to sell a house fast in Cartersville or the surrounding area it’ll likely fly off the shelf.
