5 Reasons to Sell Now: Reason #1: High Demand

Five Reasons You Want to List Your Property TODAY!
There is High Demand Right Now
You have seen in and heard it in the news. The real estate market is "picking up" and it is "busy out there". That is true! One thing The Korn Team discusses with their seller clients is that Real Esate is really just Economics 101. Remember when you learned about Supply & Demand? That is what Realtors like Brad Korn are sharing with his clients in the Greater Kansas City areas of Blue Springs, Lee's Summit & Independence Missouri.
the fact is since 2007 more and more homes have been selling at an increasing rate. In fact, in July of 2007 The Korn Team at Keller Williams Realty broke an all time record for most properties sold in their office in one month. Brad & his team sold and closed 25 transactions in just one month. That was a sign that the inventory levels of homes for sale were beginning to shrink. When we all learned about supply and demand, we learned that when supply is low and demand is high, prices will rise. From the end of 2005 through 2007 the supply of homes was increasing. It took until 2007 for buyers to realize that the interest rates were incredible low and the inventory levels were high enough that we were seeing some great "deals". What we also learned in Econ 101 in the Supply/Demand class was when you have a large supply and low demand prices begin to fall.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently released the Existing Home Sales Report and they found the year end sales for 2012 had increased by 9.2% over 2011 sales. The Korn Team is are selling an average of 10 homes each month. That equates to an average of 100 properties each year for the past 10 years and over 1,500 properties in our 20+ years of selling real estate. Brad & his team have helped our clients take advantage of the current market condition by getting more exposure to a seller's home. When we get more exposure than anyone else, The Korn Team helps their home owners get their property sold faster and in some cases, when positioned properly in the market, you can get multiple offers on your property.
