Home Sellers Enjoy Upper Hand in Current Real Estate Market

high demand in north Atlanta real estateIt’s no secret that a lack of inventory is pushing up home prices in the north Atlanta real estate market, and this has given sellers the upper hand. If you have been thinking of listing your Roswell or Marietta home for sale, now is a great time to make a move.

Low real estate inventory complicates search for home buyers

Low real estate inventory levels are forcing home buyers to search longer and harder to find their dream homes, and they are now more likely to compromise on formerly “must have” requirements. From location and architectural style to square footage and specific home features, the demand for homes in Marietta and other north Atlanta suburbs is strong.

Sellers benefit from demand

With high demand and buyer confidence, sellers are no longer desperate to unload their homes. They don’t need to negotiate to make a deal, so buyers need to carefully consider their offers. Offering a reasonable price is a good start, but buyers may also need to be flexible on other matters, like closing dates, buying as-is, or making a larger down payment.

Choose a Realtor who can help you navigate a sellers market

If you are selling Marietta real estate, a Realtor can help you make the most of this opportunity. While you want to get a good price for your home, it can be tricky to navigate issues like receiving multiple offers on your home, so having the guidance of an experienced real estate agent is invaluable. Of course, the combination of low inventory and high demand can also make home buying more difficult, so if you are trying to buy a home for sale in Marietta, it’s wise to choose a Realtor who will help you see high quality properties and get you the most favorable deal.
