The Chicken and the Egg of Housing Inventory

One of the top reasons today's homeowners are holding off on selling is this: fear of not finding another place to move into due to low inventory levels. And one of the reasons we have low inventory levels is because homeowners are skittish about selling. There you have it. Chicken and the egg. Listings and inventory.

The question for homeowners isn't about which came first, but how to crack open this puzzle and break the cycle.

As the busiest real estate brokerage in Arlington, we list and sell more homes than any other shop in town. We are out at open houses, showings, and talking to clients and business partners about the market every day. Living and breathing real estate gives us an insider's view into the hyper-local market -- the pipeline of available homes, who the potential buyers and sellers are, and what's coming on the market next.

And we can tell you that within the next 30 days we have a number of new listings that will be coming available.

Yes, the market is low on inventory - right now. But this is not the time to chicken out of the housing market. Homeowners who are considering listing their homes have plenty of opportunity to land sunny side up when it comes to buying on the flip side.

Be sure to stay tuned to our blog, we're going to fill you in on what we know - including some of these fantastic listings and new construction.
