Raleigh Real Estate Market Update June, 2015
June 2015 showed some interesting numbers. As the temperatures rise so did this sellers market. If you're considering selling your home now is a great time do so, because it's tough to find a home if you're a buyer. For anyone with a property that could potentially be tough to sell, you'll have an excellent chance at selling your property in this market.
Last week we sold two homes at 99.5% list to close price and had two happy sellers with great things to say. One home was on Leesville in North Raleigh and it was an expired listing. It sat on the market for a long time in 2014 and early 2015 before selling for FULL asking price here in June.
So without further ado, here is the June Raleigh Real Estate report:
