CHA-CHING! According to ATTOM, curator of the nation’s premier property database, this year's third quarter statistics show that the average home seller profited just over $100,000 - almost double the profit margin and "the highest level since the end of the Great Recession a decade ago"!

Even with an injured economy and almost two years of COVID-19, the housing market has remained strong and steady.. or maybe a more accurate expression would be tough and crazy. Real estate may be an unpredictable industry, but these last two years have given that adjective a new sense of accuracy. Regardless, that's what keeps it fun and interesting though it may depend on what side you're on - buyer or seller. It's no argument that sellers have had the ball in their court for quite some time now and it shows in the statistics.

A combination of factors from the economy and pandemic have led to changes that most all of us have experienced and adopted together. Resulting from these changes, the guarantee of a safe, healthy and accommodating home is one of, or the most important criteria that exists in today's environment. So, as you can imagine or have been experiencing as a buyer/seller in this market, it is a simple equation of supply and demand where demand is (very) high for homes and the supply is (very, very) low. Depending on what area of the U.S. you live in, the extremes of these obviously differ with relocation being a big factor.
