We have been talking about how right now is the best time to buy a house in Lynnwood WA in years. We have been seeing prices drop, contingencies come back, and interest rates are staying below 5%.
If you are looking for the deal your best bet is to look for houses that have been on the market more than 14 days.
A listing gets the most attention from the available buyer pool in the first 7 days, and peaks on day 7. By the time we get to day 14 on the market the interested buyer pool is starting to dwindle.
Once a house has been on the market for 30 days or more it is basically just waiting for new buyers to enter the market that may be interested in purchasing it.
Often times, when a home has been on the market over 30 days the seller is starting to get a antsy. Perhaps they need to move, have a property they are interested in, need to reduce their payments, or are just ready for all the extra curricular activity to stop.
If you are a buyer looking for the “deals” you may want to start by looking for homes that have been on the market longer than 30 days.
We have put together a list of 5 homes for sale in Lynnwood over 30 days.
