If you haven’t realized this by now, it truly is a Sellers’ Market. Now more than ever is a great time to sell property! Over the past year, home owners have gained an unprecedented opportunity to win big by selling in today’s housing market.

Here is a brief update on the current market. The State of New Hampshire has 1,206 Residential Listings (for the whole state). As of today, 2,594 Residential listings have closed year to date, with another 2,770 Under Agreement. This increase in demand coupled with such limited supply is leading to more bidding wars throughout the country. (Data from New England Real Estate Network).

Houses are selling in half the time. The average days on market has gone down to 21 days, where it was at 43 days last January. The median sales price is up 14.1% from $266,300 in January 2021 to now $303,900. (Data from National Association of Realtors).

Prices are high and, in most situations, properties are only on the market for a few days before they go under agreement. Most are selling over and above asking price because of the multiple bids that sellers are receiving due to the limited inventory. On average, a seller receives 3.7 offers on their home. We are seeing a lot of cash offers with no contingencies. Buyers are still waiving home inspections and appraisals as they were in the beginning of the pandemic.
