Did you know that some 65% of homeowners say they are confident they would get the asking price for their home if they put it on the market today? That's up from 40% in 2010.* So today's buyers may find they have to pay more to get what they want.
Only about a third of Americans feel it's a buyer’s market, down from 47% in 2010.
Keep in mind that homes are selling on average for close to asking price: The national average (based on metro areas) for the sale-to-list price ratio is 98%.
