Dead Low Home Inventory = Great Timing for Sellers!

Media reports of insanely low inventory ring true here on the North Shore, North of Boston. Buyers fighting over limited listings is a reality in some, not all, circumstances. Yes, buyers are aggressive but they are also educated and informed.

“Inventory reached a low this month that we haven’t seen since MAR began recording the data,” said 2016 MAR President Annie Blatz in a press release. “As long as we need more homes for sale, it will remain a good time to put your house or condo on the market." All of us here at Windhill agree. Get the full article here from Boston.com correspondent, Scott Van Voorhis.  Contemplating a change of address?

This is NOT News! Boutique Firms are Changing Real Estate.

1987 brings back fond memories of working along side some local real estate legends, some still breaking records, some no longer with us. Boutique firms are nothing new. It's how I started out all those years ago, working for a woman no less, who grew to be the leading company of her time & place. Fast forward 30 years and I find myself again, with the leading company of my time & place. The decades have been telling. I've experienced the giant corporations with their slick marketing materials, convention center expos and thousands of followers; they have a right to be here too. Then there's the independent guy (or gal) who takes a different approach, one of quality over quantity, one of substance over slick, one of personal relationships. The choice is all yours. And while I do appreciate Inman's article about independent brokerages sharing their secrets to success, I'm here to tell you, we've been doing it for decades, proudly so. 2016 was another banner year and Windhill managed to move more real estate in Ipswich than any other firm. More importantly, we built relationships every step of the way. We expect 2017 to be even busier. I still believe this is a relationship business. It's personal. Choose wisely.

Selling Your Home Solo to Save Money?

home sales

You'll actually make less than you think!

Those of us who have been around a while (eh hemmm 30 years) have seen this unfortunate scenario play out more often than we'd like. Our hearts break when we learn of homeowners under-selling. It hurts them along with the over-all home values. 

Friends don't let friends go 'fizz-bo'! (Industry lingo for FSBO or for-sale-by-owner). Even I was startled by this bottom-of-the-barrell pricing statistic when buyers and sellers are friends! What a steal for the buyer!
