In school, we all learned the theory of supply and demand. When the demand for an item is greater than the supply of that item, the price will surely rise.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently reported that the inventory of homes for sale stands at a 3.8-month supply. This is considerably lower than the 6-month supply necessary for a normal market.
Every monthNARreports on the number of buyers out in the market looking for homes, which is also known as buyer traffic. As seen on the map below, buyer demand in March was strong or very strong in 45 out of 50 states nationwide, and Washington, DC.
Many buyers are being confronted with a very competitive market in which they mustcompetewith other buyers for their dream homes (if they are even able to find a home they wish to purchase).
Listing your house for sale now will allow you to capitalize on the shortage of homes for sale in the market, which will translate into a better pricing situation.
Many homeowners underestimate the amount of equity they currently have in their homes. According to a recent Fannie Mae study, 37% of homeowners believe that they have more than 20% equity in their homes. In reality, CoreLogic’s latest Equity Report tells us that 78.9% actually do!
Many homeowners who are undervaluing the equity they have in their homes may feel trapped, which may be contributing to the lack of inventory in the market.
If you are debating selling your home this year, let's meet up to evaluate the equity you have in your home, as well as the opportunities available in your market.

3 Charts That Shout, ‘List Your Home Today!’In school, we all lear
"In 2013, we were in the market for a new house to upgrade from our first home. My wife was able to locate the perfect house which met our needs. That was how I met Jessica who was actually the seller's agent. She handled the negotiations and real estate related transaction with such efficiency and professionalism that we closed the deal in no time. In fact, things went so well I decided to use Jessica's help to sell our house. She went to work right away and did everything possible to make sure the house had good exposure and to generate optimum traffic. We maintained an open line of communication and worked through offers as they came. Before you knew it, the house was sold at more than a decent margin. It can be stressful to sell or buy a house; you just need the right help in your corner. I would recommend Jessica to anyone."
