Buying or selling a home can be stressful, even in normal times. Right now, when the Twin Cities housing market is moving at a medium-to-face pace, both buyers and sellers are making rather quick decisions and it can be stressful. It’s easy to overlook the end goal; right-sized home, relocation, dream home, etc. Try not to lose focus!
Facing a low inventory of available condos & homes in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas, buyers may have limited time to arrange home showings. Twin Cities real estate buyers know they may have to make a quick decision once they located a home that fits their needs and wants. In some cases, buyers might not have the luxury of a second showing and/or often competing in a multiple offer situation.
Some sellers are also feeling the challenge of the fast pace in the current seller’s market. While it is nice to have multiple offers from which to choose, the fact that the offers are at times being made sight-unseen means that some of the offers may not be the buyer’s first choice. In addition, if the seller intends to buy another home, then they will be in the same position as the buyers once they enter that side of the competitive market.
