What seller sentiment means for today's agents

The key to true recovery is more inventory
  • The latest seller sentiment survey results from Redfin are nothing but encouraging and should work in favor of those agents who are willing to put in the time and effort.
  • Seller sentiment has never been higher than it is right now, and real estate agents aware of the trend could benefit immensely from an impending influx of business.
  • Confidence exhibited by today’s sellers could be the answer we need to solve the inventory crunch holding the market back.

Today’s housing market is brimming with potential, as evidenced by the glorious return of equity and consumer confidence. However, for real estate to truly cross the recovery threshold into what you might consider to be a period of sustained prosperity, it will need to overcome at least one more significant hurdle: barren inventory reserves.
