This new normal is cramping our style at home – we need more space! The kitchen table is covered with work, the family room is crowded with all the homework and school supplies, we need a bigger yard now that we have to stay at home all the time.
If your new normal has you holding your plate to eat because there’s no table space, if you’re feeling crowded in the clutter and unable to focus on work because of all the distractions – maybe it’s time to find or upgrade to a new place? One with an office and maybe an additional room that can be set up for as a Zoom room with all the learning supplies, maybe one with a little land so that you can play outside in the fresh air or maybe even a pool!
Trouble is, you are not the only one that’s feeling that way! The National Association of Realtors is showing a trend of people moving out of the city into suburbs and the country. This sudden trend is creating a seller’s market in many areas and there just isn’t enough inventory for everybody. Builders are working hard to keep up but houses are flying off the market fast. Creating an offer that will be accepted in a competitive market is imperative. Timing the closings so that you aren’t homeless in between transactions is a plus. Following up with your buyer and their financing to keep their closing on time is key. There has never been a time where it’s imperative to have an experienced agent helping you figure out the best strategies for listing your home and finding a new one!
