Low Home Inventory on the Seacoast!

Low Home Inventory! Do you know what that means? 

That means your home might be worth more than you think. That means your home could sell quickly.

Here on the Seacoast we have QUALIFIED buyers actively looking for their new home. We just do not have enough homes to show them.

According to the Seacoast Board of REALTORS® April Press Release, "Real estate sales activity in the 13 Sample Seacoast Towns registered modest monthly gains in March as record low inventory levels limited the spring market to a sluggish start." 

Last week, we called neighbors and previous clients with homes that met our buyer's desires to see if they would consider selling their home.  

In our office, we have personally seen recent bidding wars, multiple offer situations, and homes going under agreement within 24 hours of listing.

Based on NNEREN MLS reports, for the months of March and April (to date) Great Island Realty's closings in the same 13 Seacoast towns, have a 99% of list to sell price with an average of 16 days on the market!

So while you may be waiting for the warmer weather to get your spring clean on and yard work done, buyers are out looking for homes. So call Great Island Realty today to have one of our amazing agents come tell you what your home is worth.

One of our favorite Seacoast events is the Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce's Restaurant Week! It's a sure sign that spring has arrived in New Hampshire and is a great reason to try out someplace new!

If you are new to the area, a visitor or a local you are sure to see some amazing menu items and take advantage of the pre fixe pricing ($16.95 for lunch and $2295 for dinner.)

The 2015 Spring event lasts from this Thursday April 9th to  Saturday April 18th.
