The market isn’t quite what it’s been in the last couple years, but it is still very strong. Home prices are historically high, but interest rates are still low and there’s much more for buyers to choose from. More choice and low rates makes it a great time to buy. It’s also a very good time to sell. In most parts of town, it’s still a seller’s market, but homes that aren’t prepared well and those not priced for the market are taking longer to sell.
