    Now is the time to sell your home in Jacksonville!  Resale inventory is at an all time low, interest rates are at an all time low and buyers are PLENTIFUL!  It amazes me everyday that we have buyers that are pre-qualified, ready to purchase a home and we can't find them a home to purchase. Now is the time to sell Jacksonville!! 

    Homes that are priced right are getting multiple offers.  Yes, that's right I said multiple offers!! Which means most of the time the homes are selling for more than the asking price.

    I work with both Sellers and Buyers so I see both ends.  For the past few months when working with Buyers our biggest discussion is to determine how much over the asking price they should offer when it is a multiple offer situation - and I will say it has been a multiple offer situation almost everytime. As a Realtor you want to make sure your Buyers are getting the best deal possible on the home they want to purchase and that still plays into helping them write an offer, but now we are faced with trying to determine what the most reasonable offer over asking price should be. It's not always the highest offer that wins.....there is more thought to writing an offer than that. That's why you should always choose an experienced Realtor.  He or she will be able to guide a Buyer on what might help them be the winning offer.

    When working with Seller's it is the BEST feeling to bring them multiple offers! It's not just the price that you are having them look at.  Sometimes, the highest offer is not the one that they choose. Again, choosing an experienced Realtor will help you determine what the best offer is or what the best counter offer is to present to the Buyer.

    Lets Get Started Today Jacksonville.......Sell your home......There's never been a better time......What are you waiting for????
