I was just reading an old blog post from last year, written by Kathryn, the former marketing director here at The Charles Realty, and wow how the real estate market has changed! In just a year the market has completely flipped itself. The old post was suggesting that home owners try renting out their homes or that those that would typically try to buy, try to rent a home instead. Now we're encouraging those who typically rent to buy!
Just last year nothing was moving, no one wanted to buy or sell. Everything kind of seemed to be at a stand still but over the past few months that has changed drastically!
Right now is the time for buying and selling! There are plenty of buyers out there looking for homes and they're grabbing them quickly! Many who would typically rent are even buying because they know this is the opportune time. There's no doubt that the economy is still struggling and the real estate market is just now beginning to bounce back but it's at the best we've seen in a long time!
Honestly this is the best time to buy, the best we've seen in well over a year. Homes in Boston are going left and right. It's been fun to compare and contrast this year with last!
