I Just Checked the Experts at Realty Times About Our Market....Could You Be Any More WRONG?

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc.

Realty Times has our market listed as a Buyer's Market today.   Let me tell you that is not the case.  Short sales, foreclosures, regular sales, if they are priced correctly are getting multiple offers above list. 

Yes, you read that correctly....MULTIPLE OFFERS above list.  How do I know this?   By being both a listing agent and selling agent, I have the bird's eye view of what is out there. 

I know that if a property has good bones, has a decent price and is in a fair area of Sherburne County, it will sell quickly. 

That is the key....correct pricing to put the seller in the cat-bird seat. 

But, we don't need the "experts" to put it out there that it is still a buyer's market because it most certainly is not.  At least not anymore. 

And, with interest rates rising, buyers need to move....and move quickly to get that home that they want NOW.

At least that is how I see it on this 17th day of April.  Don't say I didn't warn you that sometimes the "experts" can see their hands in front of their faces....

Don- The "experts" are  wrong a whole lot more than they're right. I think it's sinking in with buyer's here - it takes that one lost property because they didn't write a strong offer and then they get with it...well...at least most do. Congrats on your feature!

The experts are actually the Realtors that deal with selling homes on a daily basis!

Don - The only ones in the real estate industry who should be allowed to be called an experty should be working Realtors.  By working, I mean a Realtor who is actively selling property.  Someone who hasn't sold anything in years and spends their time lecturing to working Realtors on how to be successful has no business being called an expert.  JMHO
