Yahoo! 2012 was a phenomenal year in Real Estate….Portland home values increased an average of 5% over 2011 & 2013 is expected to just as strong if not more. Many homes are selling at and over the list price within 1-2 days of listing with multiple offers! What is causing the surge? The biggest component is two-fold; lack of inventory combined with incredible interest rates and lots of buyers ready to go.
Although when any listing is done well…..professional photography & video, beautiful staging, squeaky clean and ready to go–it sells well. However in this market–good homes sell even faster and higher. Conversely, if a home is poorly prepped and/or overpriced, it’s going to sit.B Remember that buyers are awake at night clicking on homes looking looking looking for their next house. They spend an average of 5 seconds on a listing and if they don’t visually like what they see, on they go.
