MARKET IN A MINUTE

Selling your home is one of the biggest decisions (and undertakings) you go through as an owner. 

In order to keep positive equity, deciding WHEN to sell is just as important as how much you decide to list your property at.

Seeing data and trends make a huge difference so you are informed to capitalize at the right time.

New in StatPak - The URGENCY Index.

A few months ago we introduced a new metric – the Urgency Index. This is simply the measure of the percentage of homes going under contract that were on the market 30 days or less, giving a sense of how quickly buyers feel they must act to put an offer on a home. To see your market's Urgency Index click the link to view the full report.
