So if you listen to what the word on the street is, everyone is saying that there is a lack of inventory.
Prices are going up because there are no houses for sale.
However, that is not entirely accurate. In fact there are more houses for sale now that there were at this time last year. So it is not entirely true that there are no houses for sale.
Really what appears to be a bigger factor is there are more people buying houses now.
One year ago there were 362 houses in Jackson County for sale, but there were 5.2 houses available for every buyer to choose from. While that is not a lot, it's way more than you need if you are on one of those HGTV house hunter shows. Because as we all know from watching house porn, you only get to see 3 houses and choose from those. Am I right?
But now there are 415 available homes on the market, yet the number of potential houses per buyer has gone down to 3.6. Still plenty according to House Hunters, but not really a lot if you are looking for your perfect house.
So this really is a better time to be a seller than to be a buyer.

"We are very happy with our agent, Christy Seigfried understood our situation with the involvement of a small estate and all of the details that go along with that. She tried to shield us from too many phone calls and disturbances, knowing we both work full time, day shift. She was very accommodating in getting documents to us to sign by computer, and came to our house when listing the property, as a convenience to us. She worked very hard to make as many conveniences for us as she could, and made herself available to us for questions or concerns 24/7. She did all of this with a positive outlook and a smile on her face. And ultimately, she sold our property for us, at the asking price. We are very happy with her as our agent and would recommend her to others without hesitation."
