Come On Autumn!

We’re about a week away from the official end of the “Summer of Love” here in Seattle and most agree that this summer will look best when it’s in the rearview mirror. In our new normal bars, restaurants and beaches are mostly closed, mini-weddings are all the rage, our masks are doing COVID/smoke double duty, NFL and MLB stadiums are empty, the Huskies aren’t playing at all, and classrooms have taken root in garages and bonus rooms everywhere. It might be funny if it weren’t all true!
Meanwhile, from the “challenges beget opportunities” file, many are using their current reality as impetus to take the blinders off, adjust their perspective and consider new options and opportunities. I’ve heard from lots of people who are re-evaluating their plans for everything from employment and commuting to caring for family members and retirement.
If you are among those considering new options (or even considering considering new options) it might be a good time to take stock of your real estate situation. While generally holding up quite well, the local market can be a bit tricky to navigate these days. Historically low inventory levels have brought back offer review dates and multiple offer scenarios at many price points and in many neighborhoods. It is nearly impossible to underprice a property in the current environment, as properly priced homes will attract eager buyers and be bid up, if worthy. That said, the market remains very efficient and overpricing a home will leave you sitting on the sidelines wondering why your property is not selling in this hot seller’s market.
I like to say that a quick conversation with a good realtor to get all your real estate goals and options on the table is almost always worth the time. This statement has never been truer than it is today. It remains as important as ever to get all aspects of the home selling process right in order to achieve the best possible result. 
Let me know how I can help.
