We keep hearing (and hoping) that the housing situation is going to get better but I certainly haven't seen it yet. The shortage of houses on the market is still with us. Houses that are priced right are being snatched up, sometimes after multiple offers. Buyers are aware that if they find something that they want they have to move fast or move on. If they don't believe it to start with, they learn very quickly. Now is not the time for low ball offers. This has pushed prices up to new highs. Now is a great time to be a seller, so if you want to sell you should do so before the market changes, and it will. It always does.
