July Stats 2014

 

imgres

 

The current market has remained stable.  Well priced properties are receiving multiple offers.  Sellers are getting their properties appraised prior to listing to prevent escrow fallout should any unforeseen problems arise.

For sellers to compete in a competitive market,  pricing properties realistically and having creative terms (seller second loan, sale with lease back, etc.), may give a property an edge in the selling market.

Many buyers are still taking advantage of low interest rates.  Getting pre-appoved can help a buyer feel more at ease during the home buying process.  First-time homebuyers may want to attend a home buying workshop to help give them the confidence they need before making a purchase.

The Hansen Ohana strives to keep you up to date with the latest in real estate news and events.  You can view more regarding July stats via Realtors Association of Maui here.
