This week’s market update is brought to you by the number 30. What does 30 have to do with it?
The October numbers are in and compared with the pre-pandemic market 2019, the number of new listings is down by 30%. The number of homes that sold is down by 30%. The number of listings sold in the month was 30% of the available listings.
How do you as a seller become part of the 30%? You have to make sure that your home is well-prepared, you’ve done all of the repairs, you’ve presented it well, gotten rid of the clutter, maybe a fresh coat of paint, and you make sure that your home is priced well. Buyers right now, they’re savvy and they know the value of a home.
Interestingly, in October homes sold for about on average 97% of the list price. That means that the homes that were successfully sold were priced at or just slightly above the market level.
