The Parade of Homes - Spring Preview started this past weekend. Buyers - some serious and others not-so-serious - are showing up and seem eager to get a good deal. Our Mittelstaedt Brothers Model (see my listing at 19720 Embers Avenue) in Farmington saw good traffic in the weeks leading up to the Parade and even better Saturday & Sunday. We recently reduced the price by over $45,000.00! Now THAT'S a GREAT deal! It's a lot of house for $342,100 on a spacious, walkout, pond lot. There's always a market for high quality new construction priced to sell! Come see this impressive two-story home Noon to 6PM, Thursdays through Sundays during the Parade ending March 22nd.

Did you know???? Historically, the peak of the home selling season occurs between January 15 and May 15th. Most people assume the peak is in the summer months but, that's not the case. Approximately 60% of all MLS listed, previously-owned properties sell during that 120 day period. (Builders will typically sign 75-80% of their home building contracts for the entire year during this period.) That also means the sales of the other 40% of previously-owned homes are spread over the slower, remaining eight months. So, if you are thinking of selling and can be ready for the market soon, now is the best time while there are three times as many of those coveted buyers out there shopping! Also, if you've had your eye on a particular property, now is the time to act so you can beat out the other buyers! Interest rates are terrific today and prices are lower than they've been in years!
