Strong buyer demand is driving quick sales and multiple offers in some cases. What's going on? The first few months of the year are traditionally dominated by a high sense of buyer urgency. That's been boosted lately by a drop in interest rates. Buyers are out in force, trying to lock in the lowest rate possible. Many sellers list in June. But with so many buyers out now, it's worthwhile to get a jump on that rush. With less competition, sellers will likely net a better price. In addition, I'm predicting the market will slow down as the election heats up this summer. Many buyers may sit on the sidelines to wait and see what happens. Listing now does not mean you have to move right away. Buyers are flexible with terms; they simply want to lock in a purchase while they can.
