If you have been checking and rechecking listing sites to see what is available in your desired neighborhood, you are not alone.
Housing inventory remains low across the country, but there is some great news. According to a survey by Realtor.com, the Tampa-St. Pete-Clearwater market saw a decrease in May listings of just 19.3%. The average across the country during the same time period was 21.9%.
For homeowners who have been waiting to list their homes, there is even more good news. Asking prices are up 1.8% in the area. If you have been waiting to list your home, now is the right time! Buyers are ready to make offers and finally find their dream homes.
Realtor.com’s Chief Economist Danielle Hale has even predicted a “shortened but strong summer home-selling season, as long as seller confidence continues to improve and more homes are listed for sale.” Are you ready? I know I am!
