After the massive increase in home prices, a cooling off has begun. Time to catch the market near it's all time peak?
The Big Picture
- The double-digit increase in values is due for a correction.
- Forecasters see small dips in values but no major corrections in our immediate area and neighborhoods.
- A more balanced supply-demand scenario is more sustainable.
Why It Matters
- Selling at or near a peak locks in a remarkable equity gain. A greatly reduced commission structure keeps more in your pocket.
- Not all homes will sell easily, so a strong marketing strategy is essential.
- Most local realtors don't have experience in slower and more normal markets. Hard work, systems, and hustle are required.
- Ask your questions in the box to the right. We'll get right back to you.
- Real estate commissions have historically been divided 50/50% between listing and buyer agents. 6% had been the standard for decades.
- You can do better and come out with more in your pocket. The buyer agent compensation is published in the MLS data agents see. The numbers impact buyer agents' willingness to show property.
- Rorke and Company Residential has the systems, skills, and people to offer full professional marketing top to bottom for 4%. while retaining the 2.5% buyer agent co-op.
