Home Sales Market Report – February 2022

Are you seeking a qualified agent to sell your home in North Carolina? Let us help you understand the real estate market and explain why we say it is a “seller’s market.”  Affluent buyers, millennials who qualify to purchase property, and many renters are recognizing the benefits of homeownership.  Buyer demand is unusually high and is unlikely to change anytime soon. In fact, Bluewater Real Estate has helped more sellers in 2022 than year-to-date in 2021.

What is an important key takeaway? For every seller that sold their home through Bluewater Real Estate, we found a home too! Homes are available; they are simply moving at a rapid pace. Crystal Coast home sales are continuing to rise and our savvy real estate agents are continuing to witness similar trends in February as in the prior month! View 2022 February Market Report.

Bluewater Real Estate sales market report February 2022Right Now, Real Estate Homeowners Have Maximum Leverage

When there’s strong demand for an item and a limited supply of it available, the seller has maximum leverage in the negotiation. In the case of homeowners who are thinking about selling, there may never be a better time than right now. While demand is this high and inventory is this low, you’ll have leverage in all aspects of the sale of your house. Today’s buyers know they need to be flexible negotiators that make very competitive offers, so here are a few areas that could tip in your favor when your house goes on the market:

  • Competitive sales price
  • Flexible closing date
  • Potential for a leaseback to allow you more time to find a home
  • Minimal offer contingencies
