Have you been on the fence as to whether it may be time to sell your home? Maybe you’ve been thinking it’s time to upgrade or move closer to your job, family or a friend. I can tell you from personal experience, the market is hot, hot, hot, especially in NW Gainesville! Several weeks ago, my newlywed friends decided they were ready to purchase their first home and I quickly connected them with an amazing, knowledgeable Bosshardt Realtor that had their same fun personality. Being young, first time homebuyers, of course they would like to have all the bells and whistles; granite, wood floors, gourmet kitchen, pool, the list goes on. As soon as a new home would come on the market that piqued their interest, she’d be on top of it, lightning fast, scheduling a tour. Unfortunately for them, these houses were pending, some with multiple contracts before she could even get through the front door, often selling for listing price or more. They are still currently waiting for their forever home to be listed for sale. Maybe IT IS time you consider selling your home, there are buyers waiting and just not enough homes on the market in our area.
My latest experience trying to purchase a home is for my parents within the last 14 days. We decided, kind of on a whim that it was time they should have a winter home closer to me here in Gainesville. I mean why not, what would they not love about being close to their favorite daughter, right? (I’m also their only daughter) So, we contacted another one of my favorite Bosshardt Realtors (there are so many) and we were off looking for their new home. Again, we were running into the same problem as my newlywed friends, there were just not enough homes that we were interested in pursuing. The couple that we were interested in that were “Active,” went “Pending” while we were standing in them calling the listing Realtor to ask questions. What are the odds?! It turns out, in this market, very high! Finally, after what felt like months of searching (it was a couple of weeks) we quickly put a contract on their new home and it was accepted. There were originally 5 active listings in this particular neighborhood and all are currently pending or contingent. All but one were on the market less than 2 weeks!
So, if you’re wondering if you can get top dollar for your home right now, the answer is YES, at least in Gainesville! Call your favorite Bosshardt Realtor at (352) 371-6100 to have them give you a free Comparative Market Analysis on your home.
