Many home sellers wait until sometimes late spring to put their home on the market and that could cost them. Why? Because many sellers think the same; that flowering shrubs and greening grass will be the best time to market their home, often times their is a glut of homes coming on the market at the same time which increases the competition.  It is better off having more buyers competing to make offers on less inventory than the more sellers competing for buyers when there is a lot of inventory. The greater Waterbury area has a market absorption rate of under 3 months in almost all price ranges. That means if no new listings come on the market the current inventory of homes will be absorbed by the market within 3 months! So if you're a seller, take advantage of the sellers market that is currently happening. Why wait until your neighbors puts their home on the market for a real competitive price?
