YES!! Pooler is a Seller's market with inventory ranging from 2 months to 5 months depending on the price point.  But buyers are not excited excited by their choices. Inventories are low and steadily decreasing. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) just released some news about existing home sales and the numbers are made of things we dream of – a 10.4% increase from the same month last year.  Sales are increasing and mortgage lending is a bit more relaxed, so let’s take a look at some ways you can become the hottest house on the market.

What homes are selling fast in Pooler?

Have you heard of homes selling recently in less than a week? A few days?  As soon as the sign goes up? Sure, Pooler is the Hottest thing but is that all it takes?  What you may not be hearing is there are just as home sitting on the market for over 300 days….getting stale! What sets some homes apart? I wanted to know this myself so I researched both the HOT and the STALE homes.  I was expecting to see a price point motivation or a favored community but that was not the case at all. The difference I discovered is what we have all known; the houses that move the quickest are show ready. The homes were not professional staged but the homes owners had done their homework and it showed.  These homes were described as well kept, better than new, have to see to believe, and immaculate again and again.  While the stale homes are the homes that start out overpriced many sellers believe this will net more money that could not be further from the truth. With the stale homes I saw price reduction after price reduction from 10,000-40,000 on homes priced 200k and below. That is huge! Especially when you  take into consideration the home has sat on the market for a year. The HOT home sold on average of 98% list to sale with little to no closing cost contribution.  My take from this… your homework.  Contact your Realtor for ideas and tips. #JPT #Poolerliving #JeriPatrickTeam
