Home Sellers More Successful March 9, 2010
Home sellers are finding more success today than they have for the past two years. By tracking the total number of home sales in Tallahassee, and dividing them by the total number of listings during the same period of time, we are able to track a measurement that we refer to as the "Home Sales Success Rate."
Currently, the 365 day trend of the home sales success rate has hit 47%, up from a low of 35% found roughly one year ago. In the real estate graph below, the blue field shows the one year trend measurement, while the red, green and purple lines show the shorter-term trends.
The short term trends in the home sales success rate are all falling, both an indication of seasonal moves in the housing market as well as a warning for the long-term trend to start to drop. One interpretation of this graph could be that serious home sellers who stage, price, and market their homes correctly right now have the best chance of selling their home that they have seen in over two years (and possibly the best chance they will have for years to come).
If you are trying to sell a home in Tallahassee, make sure you put your best effort forward now, or you risk of joining those who are on the "failed to sell" list.
