OOPS…Not So Fresh Lately!

Busy Times!

Busy Times!

For those of you that have tried blogging, you know it can be challenging keeping up. My most recent FRESH BLOG was back in November! Soooo, for those of you that are avid fans of my blog and that call me to complain when I am late in posting (that’s pretty much just my business accountability partner Jim)…I sincerely apologize for the delay!

It is for good reason that I am behind. Real estate is BUSY! I had several calls in December from sellers that wanted to sell and buyers that wanted to buy. When January came along and the holidays were officially over, I was off and running. In January and February, I had four listings go on the market and each listing received multiple offers within one or two days of hitting the market! Thank goodness for my incredible Transaction Coordinator…the paperwork is a nightmare in multiple offer situations.

Since then I have had two additional listings hit the market and several buyers that are actively searching. These buyers are learning very quickly that if they don’t make a fast decision about a new listing on the market, it will be GONE.

The real estate headlines are all saying that as well. There is an inventory shortage in Portland Metropolitan and interest rates are low. These are the main factors driving the bee hive of activity.

It is an opportune time to sell for many that have been waiting AND it’s still a great time to buy if you are committed, pre-approved and ready to act fast.

Have a great March!  Sincerely……… Kevin    www.KevinGormanSells.com

P.S. –  I stopped in at an open house this past weekend and it was buzzing with activity. There must have been 15-20 people that visited at the same time as me… and I was only there for about 15 minutes.. I took the picture below of the entry on my way out! Needless to say the home was listed as “pending” 3 days later.
