Seller optimism reaches all time high – with good reason. Time for an updated market analysis

July 11, 2017

The market is dramatically different and seller optimism is at an all time high!


Did you consider selling your home a few years ago but decided against it because you had not recovered enough equity from the downturn?  Time to talk to your agent again because things have changed. 93% of homeowners have regained equity in their property.

Time for an updated comparative market analysis

Maybe you sat down with an agent several years ago and really wanted to list, but just could not pull the trigger at that time because the value was too low.  You’ll likely be happily surprised when you call back that agent for another market analysis. Home prices have been rising steadily in recent years and the Wisconsin real estate market is doing great. Buyers right now are fighting over homes. This is driving multiple over-asking offers within days of listing.  It is clearly a good time to be a seller.


A recent Fannie Mae survey indicated that seller optimism has reached a record high and other stats:

30% of consumers think now is a good time to buy a home, up 3% from May

39% of consumers think now is a good time to sell, up 7% from May

46% think that home prices will rise, up 6% from May

66% are not worried about losing their job
