I started in real estate in late 2007, just as the real estate market was starting to come crashing down.  Since then it has been mostly a buyer's market with buyers beating up sellers on the prices.  It has been interesting this spring and summer of 2016 to see the tide change.  It seems that as of late sellers are getting the upper hand.  Homes, when priced right, are selling fast and occasionally over list price.  It has certainly been an interesting experience for me as I've been used to the buyer's market.  I listed a home a month ago that received 6 offers in the first week.  So if you're a seller out there on the fence, time to get it listed.  If you're a buyer, be ready to jump.  The right homes aren't lasting long!
