These 3 Charts Shout, "List NOW!"

List NOW! Why? Remember, in school, we all learned thetheory of supply and demand. When the demand for an item is greater than the supply of that item, the price will surely rise.

These 3 charts will have you shouting, "List NOW!"

SUPPLY

The National Association of Realtors (NAR)recentlyreportedthat 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.

DEMAND

Every month NAR reports 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 must compete with 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.

HOME EQUITY

Many homeowners underestimate the amount of equity they currently have in their homes. According to a recentFannie Maestudy, 37% of homeowners believe that they have more than 20% equity in their homes. In reality,CoreLogicslatestEquity Reporttells us that78.9% 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.

Bottom Line

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.
