Marshall’s Take

“What we’re seeing now is a delayed spring market from when COVID hit bleeding into the summer months, flooding the market with great inventory and creating a double market with more demand. This is one of the best times to buy or sell that I’ve ever seen in my 20+ years of selling real estate in Raleigh.

It’s a great time to BUY because the interest rates are so low, and it’s a great time to SELL because homes are selling incredibly fast. Closed sales are up 31% YOY from June 2019, and these listings are selling for record prices per square foot.”n
