#1 Reason to Sell Your Grayslake Home Now Before Spring

#1 Reason to Sell Your Grayslake Home Now Before Spring

The price of any item (including residential real estate) is determined by ‘supply and demand.’

If many people are looking to buy an item and the supply of that item is limited, the price of that item increases.




According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the supply of homes for sale dramatically increases every spring. As an example, here is what happened to housing inventory at the beginning of 2017:


Putting your home on the market now instead of waiting for increased competition in the spring might make a lot of sense.

Thinking of Selling in 2018? Now is the Perfect Time!

Thinking of Selling in 2018? Now is the Perfect Time!



It is common knowledge that a great number of homes sell during the spring-buying season.

For that reason, many homeowners hold off on putting their homes on the market until then. The question is whether or not that will be a good strategy this year.

The other listings that do come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller.

Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market in the spring as compared to the rest of the year?

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed the months in which most people listed their homes for sale in 2017.

Here is a graphic showing the results:

Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,680,000.

That number spiked to 1,970,000 by May!

What does this mean to you?

712,000 Homes in the US Regained Equity in the Past 12 Months!

CoreLogic’s latest Equity Report revealed that “over the past 12 months, 712,000 borrowers moved into positive equity.” This is great news, as the share of homeowners with negative equity (those who owe more than their home is worth), has dropped more than 20% since the peak in Q4 of 2009 (26%) to 4.9% today.

The report also revealed:

The average homeowner gained approximately $14,900 in equity during the past year.Compared to Q3 2016, negative equity decreased 22% from 3.2 million homes, or 6.3% of all mortgaged properties.U.S. homeowners with mortgages (roughly 63% of all homeowners) have seen their equity increase by a total of $870.6 billion since Q3 2016, an increase of 11.8%, year-over-year.
The map below shows the percentage of homes by state with a mortgage and positive equity. (The states in gray have insufficient data to report.)
