Now’s the Time: Making the Most of the High Demand for Homes

Sep 28, 2020 | Senior Living, Uncategorized

Good afternoon. I hope this finds you “healthy” as I come to you from the beautiful Southwest Florida weather.

If you’ve been thinking about selling your house, now is a great time to do it. It’s a seller’s market and the demand for real estate is high. In the first few months of the pandemic, understandably, there was a pause in real estate. March – June is peak time for those who want to buy a house, especially those who are drawn to the enchantment of beautiful Southwest Florida.

People looking for homes now are joined by those who postponed their search in the spring. This means a greater than usual number of people are looking to buy homes. More buyers plus fewer houses on for sale significantly increases the potential for multiple offers. Take advantage of this incredible opportunity now!

If you’re a retiree who’s been thinking about selling, now is the time. Whether you’re looking to simplify your life or downsize to senior living, make the most of this unusually high demand for homes.

According to the Naples Area Board of Realtors:

(August 21, 2020) –The Naples housing market experienced a continued surge in activity during July, which resulted in a 57.3 percent increase in pending sales (homes under contract) for the month. Closed sales during July increased 35.4 percent compared to July 2019 – greatly surpassing June’s closed sales activity following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions. However, a decreasing supply of inventory, which broker analysts believe is caused by heightened homebuying interest this summer, is making it difficult to keep up with the strong buyer demand. Overall inventory decreased 28.8 percent in July 2020 to 4,390 properties from 6,168 properties in July 2019.
