Start Shopping for Home & Select the One You Love!

Be patient. This is currently a seller's market. Supply is less than the demand. Be prepared to move quickly if you find something you love!

On the other hand if this was a buyer's market, the supply would be greater than the demand, meaning that purchasers have an advantage over sellers in price negotiations. There's less competition from other buyers and leverage in negotiations

Be prepared to submit a strong offer along with your earnest money! Do not drag your feet! We would hate to see the home you love slip away.
