Real Estate Broker Lock Box Report for March 20, 2017

Realtor Lock Box Openings Increase to Typical Season-High Levels!

Moving farther into the new year of 2017, we have a continued mis-match of Home Buyers to Home Sellers; with Available Inventory at an Extremely Low level (ref: What is My Vancouver WA Condo Worth - January 2017). The following chart is provided by RMLS, showing that real estate brokers have been opening boxes for Condos and Homes now almost 5,000 times for the week of March 20th.  

Chart of RMLS Washington Lockbox Statistics March 20 2017 RMLS Washington Lock-Box Activity - Week Ending 3-20-17
This level of activity is not usually seen until mid-summer (Peak of the Year). 

Here are our recommended Home Owen Action Items if you are thinking of selling:
  • Commence with Maintenance and Repair items. Buyers will still be interested in a Condo or Home in Excellent Repair.
  • Pack-up and De-Clutter - this activity can make the spaces in your home seem so much bigger.
  • Fresh Paint, Clean Flooring - the Appeal to Buyers for these items cannot be understated - a Must Do!
  • Contact us for your Real Estate Home Value Analysis.
Please contact us right away with any questions or assistance you may need with any of the above bulleted items - we are glad to be of assistance.

Home Shoppers - get Preapproved and save as much as you can for Down-Payment, Closing Costs and Inspection costs - these all help you better compete against other eager buyers.
