Madison home sellers, here’s why your sense of urgency should by high.

We are just getting started with the summer, but for this year’s real estate market we are already well into the second half of buying season. This graph paints a good picture of how buyer activity changes from month-to-month. As the graph shows, the number of accepted offers decreases in July – well below the levels from the peak months of March, April, May and June.

(A note for sellers: Now is the time to ensure your pricing and your marketing are on the mark. The month of July sill offers a good window of opportunity with a large supply of buyers, but that window will be closing fast.)

The good news for sellers is many July buyers do have a sense of urgency. A large percentage of the buyers in July will need to close by the end of the summer, as this graphic makes clear.
