Selling then in 2012 - was good only if you had to...for example your condo had huge upcoming assessments, it changed rental rules (to have new owners wait a year or two before renting out), or you had a short sale situation...
Selling now - in the sellers market with single family homes increase this year of 5.6%,
plus still low interest rates, plus 70% of buyers of condos being cash...It's very very good.
However, some areas show increases in inventory (due to overpriced listings).
This is May 2014.

- You want to buy a bigger place. (Even if you owe more than your home is currently worth)
- You need to short sale (Tax exemption ends in December 2012.)
- You're underwater, but can afford to continue your payments.
- You want to downsize (consider becoming a landlord instead.)
CORRECTLY PRICED, in this market a property should receive multiple offers within 15 days. Priced too high, fewer buyers will see the property, and you'll end up with less money. What you should be seeking is a bidding war.

Your question has certainly sparked a great deal of response!
In short, this is one of the best times in recent years to sell a home. Inventory levels are at record lows, which is causing prices to go up. Here's a blog post I wrote on this topic recently "Shortage of Fort Lauderdale Homes For Sale Yielding Intense Competition" http://luxurylivingfortlauderdale.com/shortage-of-fort-laude
If you would like, I can provide you with a Market Snapshot that will help determine what your home is worth in today's market. You can either fill out a form online (http://luxurylivingfortlauderdale.com/find-your-homes-value/) or contact me via email or phone to get the process started.

Everything is pointing to it being a Seller's Market again. I had clients out the other day and both homes that they choose already had contracts that were being negotiated. I was told by my real estate attorney this week that the expensive houses are starting to sell again, also. If a home is listed at the right price it should sell. If you would like a complimentary Compartive Home Analysis on your home please give me a call. I would be happy to assist you with the sale of your home.

if you ask, "Can your home be sold today?" Yes, inventories are low throughout the state.
If you ask, "Is it profitable for me to sell today?' The answer will depend on when you purchased and for how much. If you bought an REO last month at 30% of value...you are looking good at selling it now, then you are very likely in a good position to make a profit. (if you did it right).
If you bought in 2006 with an ARM, it is very likely you can sell your home but you will only receive the relocation incentive your bank may offer. Nothing else.
Then comes your neighborhood. The projection for your community will determine your outcome.
So, as you can see, it depends on your situation and what your selling needs and objectives are.
There's more than 20 ways to sell a home. Talk to a pro to get the details.
If you are serious pick up the phone and call a Fort Lauderdale agent.

Don't send email.
Pick up the phone and call one of them....if you are serious.
A great time to sell is now as the mortgage rates are so low and there is little inventory on the market, so sellers are getting top dollar as there is not much to choose from.
I would happily come by to give you an estimate of value on your home so that you can decide easier on your thoughts of selling. I am available any time in the next week to stop by and chat to you.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Everyone herein is correct. This is indeed a great time to sell your house because all the stars are lined up to sell quickly (low interest rates, low inventory high demand, etc.). But what is your situation, is it a good time for you to sell? Are you upside-down on your mortgage? Do you have any equity in your property? Did you over improve your house with renovations that you will not be able to recoup when selling unless you understand you will have to take a bath.
On the latter, many people overlook the concept that if they bough a house in 2003 for X amount at the time, they put $100K in improvements in it, that is all well and good, but the real estate market is back at the 2003 selling prices. Unfortunatley for sellers, they hope to recoup their improvement investment but that most likely won't happen, at least not for another 5 to 8 years down the road. Example: I sold a condo in original condition at East point Towers on Middle River (end cap facing the water and the ocean) in December of 2002 to a man for $299K . The man put $117K in upgrades. We sold it again on December 27, 2011 for exactly $300K. The owner wasn't happy with it but he didn't complaint either, he had to move on with his life for other goals.
The best time to sell is when mortgage interest rates are low. Selling your home when there are more buyers for your house than sellers means a high demand market for your home. Right now our housing inventory in very low and I have buyers simply waiting for properties to become available.The location of your property and demand will often determine its selling value.

Now is a good time to sell a home because there is not a lot of inventory on the market and interest rates are at near historic lows so more people can afford to buy. Properties that are priced right are selling very quickly. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your home and the possibility of putting it on the market.
Please feel to call, text, or email me anytime, day or night.
I hope you're having a great day and I look forward to hearing from you!

It is absolutely a good time to sell. Inventory is low, and interest rates are low. The real question is... "Is it the right time for you to sell." I can't answer that untill we speak and I do a Comparative Market Analysis on your property and calculate a net sheet which will estimate how much cash you can walk away from a sale with.

Our recommendation is to be in touch with a couple of local real estate professionals for their opinions. They should be able to clearify this issue for you and help you to understand the selling process more clearly.
I am seeing an increase in people wishing to purchase a single family home. So I would say that now is a better time to sell than the last year or so.
If I can be of further help please contact me directly.
