What does this mean to you? The summer market appears to be coming to an end. The homes that were in market-ready condition and that were priced to sell were sold over the summer, but the summer has ended strongly. Even though inventory is dropping, there are still some beauties left so buyers arriving late to the market still have some opportunities. Sellers who want to sell their homes this winter will have to have a strong marketing campaign, great pricing, and be market ready in order to appeal to the decreased number of buyers in the market right now.
