Getting these numbers down helps everybody whether you’re a distressed homeowner or not, which can signal an improvement in Real Estate market conditions if the trend does continue for the months ahead.
*Coral Springs’ inventory of homes have continued the reducing pattern in this Seller’s Market where the inventory is at all time lows. May’s Absorption Rates registered at 2.09% where April’s rate was at 2.08%. Why should anyone care about an Absorption Rate or have you ever even heard of an Absorption Rate? Your Coral Springs Realtor that you hire should talk Absorption Rates, if they know their local market. This rate will tell you that if you list your home for sale with the current inventory level, the inventory of homes will all be sold within just over 2 months, while Buyers line up to buy homes, buy Coral Springs homes. When Buyer’s want to buy a Coral Springs home, you’ll find them trying to make their offers very attractive, so home Sellers, as yourself, will select their offer. It is a great time to sell a home in Coral Springs so, if you want to sell your home in Coral Springs, call me and I can tell you how I’ll get your home sold for top dollar and fast!
Challenges are certainly what the current Coral Springs home Buyer is going through in this Seller’s Market, as Buyers must make their offers clean as a whistle and very attractive to the home Seller and there are ways, in which, this can be accomplished when you have a professional Real Estate Agent on your side.

How much is my home worth? As you can imagine, this is probably one of the first questions that I routinely receive from a homeowner who is thinking about selling a home in Coral Springs or anywhere for that matter. Price points will be considered when setting a price to sell a home in Coral Springs. As I discuss each month, these price points can tell you where there are a lot of Buyers looking in a particular range and are willing to pay that price thereby, increasing the chance of your home being sold. During May, you’ll find the most heavily populated price points are those listed below. For example, from the list below, if your home’s value was near the $400,000 price point and you were to price your home at $399,999 or just below, you’d have a much greater chance of reaching more Buyers compared to pricing your home immediately at $400,000. Pricing at the right price point can elicit multiple offers driving up the ultimate sale price of your home. This is why I can’t stress it enough on the importance of pricing your home right, at the beginning. Thinking you can always reduce it later if your home doesn’t sell, statistically will result in a lower sales price and take longer to sell. I can speak to you further on this point, just call me.
Not sure of where you should price your home; If you want to know, please contact me for a complimentary valuation of your home. As I say, again and again: Pricing your Coral Springs’ home to sell
Price Range Quantity
$200,000 -$249,999 17
$250,000 -$299,999 24
$300,000 -$399,999 45
$400,000 -$499,999 12
