If I lived in Waverly Park and was thinking of moving this year, I would take advantage of today’s strong seller’s market. Right now there is no competing inventory. As the spring selling season moves forward, there will be more inventory which will likely put a damper on prices.
Knowing that it is a seller’s market isn’t necessarily going to get you top dollar when you sell. You also need to align yourself with an agent who understand the intricacies of the market and how best to present your home to the market so you achieve the results you desire.
