On a continual daily basis, I review new listing data from the Multiple Listings I belong to in Middlesex County, New Jersey, and the Cape Fear Area in the North Carolina Regional MLS. Of importance is viewing new listings, pending listings, and closed sales in the areas where I specialize in. It is amazing seeing how many properties become pending in just days of going on the market and viewing closed sales and seeing how many homes sold above list price and how much above list price they sold for. I can see what is occurring in the markets I do business in, but is also important for me to understand what is also going on in other real estate areas as well.
Yes, I do subscribe to and read lots of real estate publications. When reading real estate, it seems that the headline news involves real estate contract offers, multiple offers being received by owners, bidding wars between buyers, and the result, extreme increases in sale prices.
Here are just some of the real estate articles of interest dated between May and August.rismedia.com-Home-Price Surge Reflects Nationwide Housing Competition Bidding Wars Are Most Common Reason Act..
