This is great news for sellers. Make sure to take advantage of the busy market by revisiting your list price with your agent and position your home to stand out and sell. While home sales are up, prices remain on the low side. Keep this in mind if you have been on the market a long time. What’s your goal? To sell or remain on the market?
