I always loved that scene from Lonesome Dove and I think about it whenever my kids remind me that I'm not that young anymore!

This market is definitely making me feel older though. List a home, have 25 showings in the first 2 days, generate 3,4, 5 offers, sell above list, rinse and repeat! I don't know how long this is going to last, but things are still moving pretty quick.

It is interesting to note though, some homes sell like this, then others sit on the market for 30, 45, 60 days. There's certainly some things you have to do, even in a hot market.

The banking industry is talking about raising the stress test on mortgages from 4.79% to 5.25%. That represents about $20,000 less that people will qualify for. The hazards of hot markets...

To all the Mom's, hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day this weekend. One of the toughest jobs on the planet!

Still a bit of a crazy market out there, but some interesting insights. Homes that are priced well and show well are selling within days of being listed and often at or above asking price. Homes that are priced too high, are sitting on the market longer and when they do sell, don't benefit from the multiple offer scenario. Interesting that even in super hot markets, some basic fundamentals still prevail.

Some other tips for a hot market that seem to repeat themselves each time we find ourselves in this situation. When selling, if you price very close to the market, or even a bit below, you will be swamped with showings and offers. Price too high and crickets. When buying, keep an eye out for homes that are priced a bit too high. As stated above, the activity level is much lower on those homes and often you wind up getting a better deal than on an under-priced home because of the difference in interest.

Hope you have a wonderful Easter and get to enjoy some down time and family time, however that looks this year!
