As you may have seen on the news, the homebuying market is more competitive than ever, which makes it a great time for military members to sell a home. Homes for sale are scarce, and with large demand, prices are high. That’s great news for sellers. You can expect your home to sell quickly for the asking price (if not more), and you could receive multiple offers.
Why Now Is a Great Time to Sell a Home
Now is the perfect time to take advantage of a seller’s market and list your home for sale. Expect home sales to continue to skyrocket!
- Prices were up in July nearly 18%, marking 113 straight months of year-over-year gains (NAR July 2021 Data).
- Military members should also take advantage of the low inventory market since homes are selling faster on average. According to NAR, homes were typically on the market for just 17 days in July before being sold.
- Remember that your home is a great investment, and now may be the ideal time for you to see a return on that investment. With housing prices expected to increase 8% in 2021 (NAR Dec. 2020), this is the perfect time to list your home.
