Offers offers everywhere, but not enough...

...Inventory to keep up with demand! Wow, never have I seen a market like this in my real estate career. I am currently working with several buyers in the Holland/Zeeland real estate market looking to find a home, and although they want nice homes, they aren't looking for the Taj Mahal at a bargain price. Just a modest place that is fairly priced. Doesn't seem like too big of a task, right? Well, think again. The last 3 homes I have just TRIED to show to these buyers have had a total of 23 offers on them, and each of the properties settled well above asking price after a bidding war ensued. All I wanted to do was schedule an appointment for the homes, but never even got a chance, as they all sold the 1st day listed. Now, it's not like this in every price point or area, but the fact it is happening in any market in our area is really good news for the health of our West Michigan real estate market. So, if you are thinking of buying a home, don't wait...they're going fast. If you're thinking of selling, now may be the time...we never know when the activity will die down.
