People say to me, “I bet you’re loving this market”, expecting that realtors are raking it up these days.
I lost 50+ bidding wars with buyers this year who lost out to others who insanely overpaid with no regard for the comps, or because listing agents were too lazy to give everyone a fair chance. Neither of those are healthy for the market in general, yet no change is on the horizon for 2022.
I found myself in two more bidding wars this week!
The two properties weren’t the superior buys in top condition – instead, both were very average and priced with no regard for the comps. Yet they both had multiple offers over list price during the week between Christmas and New Years?
