More Americans Say Now Is A Good Time To Sell! More Americans Say Now is a Good Time to Sell! 146 SHARES 12810215 Recently released data from Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey revealed that rising home prices were the catalyst behind an eight-point jump in the net percentage of respondents who say now is a good time to sell. The index is now 21 points higher than it was this time last year. Overall, 62% of Americans surveyed said that now is a good time to sell (up from 58%), while 26% of respondents said that now is not a good time to sell (down from 30%). The net score is the difference between the two percentages, or 36%. According to CoreLogic, home prices are now up 6.7% over last year and 78.8% of homeowners with a mortgage in the US now have significant equity (defined as 20% or more). As home prices have increased, more and more homeowners have realized that now is a good time to sell their homes in order to take advantage of the extra equity they now have. At the same time, however, rising prices have had the exact opposite impact on the good-time-to-buy scale as many buyers are nervous that they will not be able to afford a home; the net score dropped 5 points to 18%. Doug Duncan, Vice President & Chief Economist at Fannie Mae, had this to say, “In the early stages of the economic expansion, home selling sentiment trailed home buying sentiment by a significant margin. The reverse is true today. The net good time to sell share is now double the net good time to buy share, with record high percentages of consumers citing home prices as the primary reason for both perceptions. Such a sizable gap between selling and buying sentiment, if it persists, could weigh on the housing market through the rest of the year.” Buyer demand continues to outpace the supply of homes for sale, which has driven prices up across the country. Until the supply starts to better match demand, there will be a gap between the sentiments surrounding buying and selling.

The east side of the river is home to historic mansions, White Plains' soaring high-rise towers, luxurious Long Island Sound homes, with upscale sporting clubs, white picket-fenced equestrian facilities, tennis centers and yacht clubs catering to its residents. West of the Hudson, rolling hills are speckled with charming river towns, villages and lake communities offering an entirely different vibe. From the Palisades to the south to the Catskill Mountains to the north, residents can find homes in a wide variety of settings, from rural market towns and gentrified villages to convenient suburban neighborhoods.

Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork!

Working with Global Property Systems was a pleasure from start to finish. From our initial discussions about marketing strategy to the final closing of the transaction, Vanessa and her team were responsive, timely, helpful and most professional. During the entire listing period and right from the start GPS provided a steady stream of qualified interested parties. Interaction with staff was always pleasant. Negotiations were straightforward and results were prompt.


On the experience of numerous real estate transactions in New York City and Westchester County, I would rank Global Property Systems as first in class and indeed almost in a class of its own."

Dearest Roberta thank you very much for finding us our perfect home. First off from the moment we contacted you without hesitation nor question u met with us in a blink of an eye. You asked us what we wanted and was very patient and showed us many homes until we found what we felt we could call home. Within moments every email, text and phone call was answered . You helped us in a crisis or two and was comforting , supporting and understanding throughout it all ..from the bottom of our hearts we truly are very grateful to have met you.

Vanessa listed our house, and had two offers for us after the first two showings. She essentially had our property sold less than a week after it was put on the market. She was very attentive before the showings, creating a beautiful website and having 5-star photos taken of the property. I would recommend Vanessa if you are seeking a hands-on and direct realtor.
