Agents, are you still seeing multiple offers and contracts for over asking price?
Yes, I am noticing that many times, sellers are receiving 101-107% of their asking price; the competition seems to remain with homes in the 175-250k range.

Is a one-story home in 75013 always going to move faster?
So true, Michael! I have noticed a lot of my buyers lately asking for a one and a half story. That way they still have a game/media room or another bedroom area.
