Don't wait to sell your home

As March begins, it looks like it will be busy this year.  We have buyers coming from all over, but primarily from the West side of the state.  The housing inventory for the Colville, Kettle Falls area is low and many buyers are waiting for the new inventory to come on the market.  It seems like we are just recovering from winter in Stevens County, but the buyers are coming from warmer climates where the flowers are ready to bloom, the grass is green and they are ready for their next real estate purchase.

We have a wide variety of buyers.  We are very limited on options to show people that are out of town on a few acres and have a house that will finance for under $175,000.  Those homes are in high demand and tend to sell quickly.  You may see a lot of for sale signs in town, but actually many of those homes have offers on them and the signs have not been removed until it is final.  Two homes in Colville were listed in our office last week and both took under a week to sell.  That shows that the buyers are just waiting for the right home and when it comes on the market they don't hesitate to snatch it up.

All of this is good news for our area and if you are wanting to sell in 2016, don't wait to list your home with a REALTOR.  If you wait until summer the market is slower because of family vacations, busy lifestyles and everyone wants to enjoy the gorgeous weather.
