Is it a good time to SELL in Clermont right now?

The short answer is – yes! Though the number of new homes being listed for sale is up year over year, the overall supply or inventory of homes is low. This is due to the demand from buyers being so high. Homes are selling quickly – often with the first few days on the market. This high buyer demand is keeping inventory low, sustaining higher home values.

The most common questions we continue to receive lately from our sellers are related to where they will go after they sell and what will the process be like. Since homes are selling so quickly, many sellers are choosing to rent after selling. Others are trying to buy another home at the same time as selling. Both are very much still possible – it just takes a little more strategy and potential sacrifice with the amount of competition right now from both buyers and renters.

Is it a good time to BUY in Clermont right now?

Although home prices continue to rise and competition for housing remains strong, we still believe it’s still a great time to buy – especially to take advantage of continuing low mortgage interest rates. Low-interest rates can decrease your monthly payment, increasing your purchase power – keeping these higher home prices within an affordable range.

In our September monthly newsletter, we actually discussed how low interest rates are keeping these higher home prices affordable for many.

If you are actively looking to buy, there are three things you should do:

  1. Get pre-approved so you’re ready to make an offer the minute your dream home is listed for sale.
  2. Act quickly. When a new home gets listed for sale that meets your needs (and hopefully wants), try to see the home that same day or the day after. If you can’t see it because you’re out-of-town or out-of-state, have a trusted local friend or family member see the home for you. We’ve also FaceTimed our out-of-state clients when they couldn’t see a home.
  3. Work with a dedicated, local, full-time real estate agent. Inventory is changing every day and you need a REALTOR familiar with the area, other local agents, and expert-level knowledge of contract writing and negotiation to beat out other offers. If you’re looking to buy in Central FL, we’d love to help.
