Leonard Dunikoski’s answer
Kindredsoul, did you decide to put your home on the market?

If not, you may have been lucky- selling prices have gone up in most towns in Ocean and Monmouth Counties.

If you text, call or email me and give me the name of your town, I'd be glad to give you a 5 month year-to-date comparison of 2013 vs 2012, including number of sales, median selling price, number of homes currently in the market, and the real estate absorption rate. That last one is important, and if you're not familiar with it I'd be glad to explain what it is and why it's important.

If you are thinking of the spring season to list, you might want to consider listing now. There are several reasons why:
1. You will stand out now and not become part of the herd in spring.
2. Any buyer you see this time of year is usually very serious about buying.
3. Your home will be ready for spring showing frenzy.
If your worried about having trouble selling your home because of Sandy, don't be. Although many properties have been affected, if yours is in good shape it would be a plus. If it was affected by Sandy and you want to sell it "as is", many buyers are looking for this kind of property.
This time of year most people are consintrating on the Holidays. Traffic to your home will be lighter that normal. Getting the property out there for the buyers to look at is important at any time of year.
You need to know what your property is worth in this market. You need to know where you want to go. This means you need a Market Analysis done. Get 2-3 of them and you will have a good indicator of the worth. Then you can decide what to do next.

Yes! it's a great time to sell a property!

Besides the wonderful answers already listed here, anyone looking to sell a property in Ocean County should also consider...

our current inventory is very low at this time, approximately 30% lower than in recent years.

Make sure to discuss a marketing plan with a local & experienced / full-time agent.

If you are thinking of selling your home now is the time to do it. Housing inventory is lower than last year and serious buyers are out looking & buying. This can be attributed to the comeback of buyer confidence thanks to affordable prices & low interest rates . If you are in a financial position that makes a move work for you,now is the time to get your home on the market & take advantage of this window of opportunity. There is less competition than there will be in the Spring when most sellers list their homes for sale.
