When the weather takes a turn for the worst, it isn’t a surprise to see the real estate market take a brief pause. Despite the snow that was determined to slow down the Jersey Shore, the Ocean County housing market showed strong numbers, indicating that there is steady growth.
Spring is coming to wake up New Jersey from her snowy slumber! After all of the winter holidays and sudden snowstorms, the housing market is ready to welcome the Open House season.
The Ocean County Board of REALTORS® has declared April 18th and 19th to be Open House Weekend to kick off the spring selling season. Open houses can be very beneficial for home sellers as their homes get more exposure to potential buyers. Anyone interested in selling their home and having it featured in the Open House weekend should contact their local participating REALTOR® for more information.
Our members abide by a strict code of ethics and have access to a wide variety of business services that are not available to non-REALTORS®. This gives them a competitive edge in the marketplace, enabling them to provide superior services to buyers and sellers of real property.
Doing it Yourself may be a lot harder than you imagined! The mounds of paperwork, and setting your price just right can be a struggle. It can be quite frustrating to schedule showings, that is IF the people show up. 2012 statistics showed that on average homes sold by a REALTOR brought almost 23% higher sales prices.
