Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of talking with brokers in the southern part of the country and I learned that their tight housing market is equally as frustrating as ours in all price ranges. They are seeing an influx of people from the northeast moving down south since people can now work from home or begin their retirement a little bit earlier. Houses are flying off the market in a matter of hours. Even homes in subpar condition or on a busy road are selling quickly.
That said, I feel very optimistic that the inventory will start to build up in a healthy way again. I recently met with 5 potential sellers in our area, all with beautiful homes that will most likely come on the market soon. I am sure my colleagues are out doing the same, ready to showcase some lovely homes in the future.
