If you are a buyer, there is plenty on the market to choose from and many sellers are still very motivated to sell. Interest rates are presently holding at excellent rates and property prices are reasonable and many have room for negotiation. We recommend that you connect with a mortgage broker and get pre-qualified so that you know exactly where you stand in the marketplace. Then choose a Realtor who is willing to give the time and energy to match your needs and criteria to the right home and property for you.
If you are a seller, the buyers are here, properties are moving and now may be an excellent time to list your property. We recommend that you get your home prepared before you list and then choose a Realtor who is motivated to sell, not just list, your home. Serious, pre-qualified buyers are looking for the right properties either for a home for themselves and their families or for investment.
