What's My Franklin TN Home Worth?: December 2012

Just Because It's the Holiday Doesn't Mean Houses Aren't Selling

Just Because It's the Holiday Doesn't Mean Houses Aren't Selling

 
House Shopping in Franklin TNYesterday, I sent a buyer a new listing that had just come on the market. I knew he was going out-of-town to see family and I was hoping he would contact me to go see the house before he left. He called this morning. He was very interested and wanted to know if he could see it when he got back into town after the holiday. 
 
I had to tell him that the house went under contract yesterday. That's right. It came on the market the Friday before Christmas and went under contract that same day. 
 
Just because it's the holiday doesn't mean houses aren't selling. 
 
As a matter of fact, Franklin TN home inventory is very low. Some buyers have seen the existing inventory and are just waiting for the right house to come on the market. When it does, they are moving quickly to get it under contract. Many of the homes this buyer has looked at have gone under contract within a day or two. When the right house comes on the market, he will need to act quickly or risk losing the house to another buyer. 
 
If you are a Franklin TN home buyer, you should be prepared for lots of competition. Especially, if you are looking to buy a home priced under $350,000. If you are a Franklin TN seller and are waiting until the Spring to list your home, don't. Homes are selling rather quickly at certain price points. Most very close to asking price. Right now, you have less competition. Remember what happens when there is less competition? Prices go up.
