    Historically, a 6-month supply is necessary for a ‘normal’ or ‘neutral’ market in which there are enough homes available for active buyers (See graph below):When the supply of houses for sale is as low as it is right now, it’s much harder for buyers to find homes to purchase. As a result, competition among purchasers rises and more bidding wars take place, making it essestial  for buyers to submit very attractive offers.

    As this happens, home prices rise and sellers are in the best position to negotiate deals that meet their ideal terms. If you put your house on the market while so few homes are available to buy, it will likely get a lot of attention from hopeful buyers low mortgage rates.

    Today, there are many buyers who are ready, willing, and able to purchase a home.

The supply of homes for sale is not keeping up with this high demand, making now the optimal time to sell your house.
