Q: What should prospective home buyers and sellers know about navigating this market?
A: We are in a healthier and more well-balanced market today. There is still a lack of supply of homes for sale, so the market continues to stay strong. There have been a lot of new agents and changes in the industry since the pandemic began, therefore, having an experienced agent is extremely important.
Q: How have rising interest rates affected home buyers and sellers?
A: Home prices are forecasted to increase five to eight percent annually, according to Real Trends, so it is still a good market for sellers. Though interest rates have forced some buyers out of the market, they have also given others an opportunity to get into the market with less competition.
Q: What do clients say about you?
A: We pride ourselves on delivering a seamless approach to buying or selling homes and our clients say they remember the compassionate and sincere care they received long after the transaction took place. Here’s a recent testimonial:
Diane and her team are absolutely fabulous! She is extremely well connected and knowledgeable about the local markets. She helped us find our house 11 years ago in just one weekend when visiting from out of town. Now she has helped us find the house of our dreams. Thank you! —A buyer in North Arlington
