1. Demand Is Strong
The latest Buyer Traffic Index from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing, and able to purchase… and are in the market right now! More often than not, multiple buyers are competing with each other for the same home.
Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.
2. There Is Less Competition Now
Housing inventory is still under the 6-month supply needed for a normal housing market. This means that, in most of the country, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers.
Historically, the average number of years a homeowner stayed in his or her home was six, but that number has hovered between nine and ten years since 2011. Many homeowners have a pent-up desire to move, as they ...

5 Reasons School Ratings Matter (Whether You Have Kids or Not)





Schools can have a big impact on property value and quality of life. If you're buying a home, here are a few reasons local school ratings matter – even if you don't have kids.

1.The next buyer will consider school ratings, too

According to a recent National Association of REALTORS Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 25 percent of homebuyers listed school quality and 20 percent listed proximity to schools as deciding factors in their home purchase. Another survey conducted by Realtor.com showed that 91 percent of the people surveyed included school district boundaries in their decision-making process.

Stewartville Homeowners: This will surprise you!

Recently, I have been contacted by buyers who are interested in purchasing a home in Stewartville.  They absolutely love the town, the sense of community, the local schools, the proximity to Rochester, proximity to the Mayo Clinic. outdoor opportunities,proximity to local shopiping and malls, etc.  However when helping them search for homes, they have become increasingly frustrated with the lack of inventory there.  This is true for the majority of the market in Southeast Minnesota but in Stewartville in particular.
