We are deep in a seller’s market, where “EVERYONE is GUARANTEED an OFFER.” What exactly does a “seller’s market” mean? It means, there is less than a one month’s supply of inventory in most price ranges available for sale in our housing market right now. Selling your home and moving is a very personal and significant event, why not hire a licensed NC Real Estate agent to handle it? It’s our job, it’s what we do, full time, from about 6 am to 11 pm most every day of the week. Statistics show that you will ultimately SAVE MONEY when you hire a real estate professional!

In such a seller’s market, average “Days on Market” is less than 30 days, and you don’t even have to “paint the house or vacuum the cat”. A professional real estate agent will represent you and decide with you what needs to be done to your home to achieve your goals. YOU will be represented throughout your entire sales transaction.

Do you really believe the purchasers behind this whole “Guaranteed Offer” are just being “nice”?

· First…they offer you “market value” for your home

· Then…they “assess” your home

· Next…they offer to “take care of all of the repair and improvements” your home needs so you don’t have to “hassle with them”.

· Finally, they go for the Kill…they reduce that sweet initial offer that got you packing in the first place. (At this point, you are all packed up, you’ve arranged for your utilities to be cut off, changed your address, spent money on your new house, switched the kids school, etc. Of course you need to go ahead and close on this house! Then, you can sit back and watch this “sweet” buyer put your home right back on the active market at the market price they offered you in the first place OR for an even higher price.

If you are thinking of selling your home, PLEASE speak with a LOCAL professional on the matter BEFORE you sign this “GUARANTEED OFFER “contract that we all know is just too good to be true.

Take a look at our 3rd Q 2018 snapshot of our local housing inventory. As we approach the end of summer and the beginning of fall, our numbers usually show a little dip and this year is no different. Threat of rising interest rates and our own natural disaster at the end of the quarter accounted for a tiny dip in sales however, we are still deep in a seller’s market. We are seeing more and more activity moving into our neighboring Harnett county so we decided to include stats for Fuquay-Varina in this county too.

FRONT PORCH REALTY continues to grow and provide the residents of Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs a LOCAL professional real estate firm to handle their real estate transactions. We love moving our residents into, and across town, and to show off all we have to offer.

We are here to help you, your relatives, co-workers, employees, and neighbors. Please consider Front Porch Realty as YOUR LOCAL real estate professionals! Please LIKE US on Facebook if you haven’t already, we are always posting LOTS of local news and happenings around town!

Check out Mary’s website to find out more about her, view more of her work, and how to contact her directly.
