Bottom Line

The 2019 market is off to a slow start. In January the Number of Homes Sold stayed the same as last year, but the Number of Pending Home sales is almost half of what it was in January 2018. It’s also taking about two weeks longer on average to sell our Trilogy homes. Today’s home buyers are taking their time and are picking up homes offering good value for the dollar.

Tip: Buyers are willing to part with their money for homes that are in excellent condition and offer a little something extra. Make sure your home is clean, bright and inviting, especially your front entry.
