Housing Market Off To A Great Start In 2017

Wow. When I pulled the numbers this morning I was excited and surprised by the number of homes that hit the market in the last week. To say we have a stronger market this year over the same week last year is understatement. In fact grossly understated.

Reports pulled from the WiIlamette Valley Multiple Listing Service shows that this week in Benton and Linn County 31 Homes came on the market. Of those 31 homes seven(7) are already under contract/sale pending. To put this into perspective, only one(1) new home came on the market the first week of January in 2016 and zero(0) came on the market in 2015. And that is a great start to 2017!

What do those numbers mean to the market?

It means it is a great time to sell your home. The misconception is that Spring is the best time to list your home/property for sale. And while it certainly is a popular time. We believe as soon as you can is the best time. Our practice at the Wilson Team Experts is to get our Seller the most money we can in the least amount of time possible. One strategy we use is to get ahead of the “springers” get your home on the market and take the buyer from the market before it gets flooded with homes. Lower inventory, less competition, great rates = good time to sell.


The question is are buyers buying? Apparently they are. That is what these numbers show us. We are seeing lots of showings on homes even with our inclement weather here in the valley. Rates went down slightly after the new year and that makes it a great time to buy. Buyers can still purchase more home for their money. WIN-WIN.

So don’t wait for the flowers to bloom. We can photoshop those beautiful days of sun. Let’s get your home SOLD now if that is the best fit for your goals in 2017.
