What this means for buyers:

  • Be educated. Learn what kind of home you want. Decide with your family members what you need in a home and what you want in a home.
  • Be informed. Spend some time getting to know the inventory. Learn what homes look like in your price range. Learn what home features you can afford.
  • Be ready. Have your pre-approval ready so that you can act quickly when you find your perfect home.

What this means for sellers:

  • If you’re on the fence about selling your home, this may be the perfect opportunity to get the most money in the shortest amount of time.
  • Even in a shrinking inventory situation, you’re still competing with other homes on the market. View the other homes that are offered for sale and make sure your home is the best one in its price range.
  • Make your home available for potential buyers.
