The seller forecast for 2017:
The outlook for sellers has continually been improving over the past several years, and all indications are that trend will continue. There are more buyers, prices are up, and inventory has remained fairly low.

Check out the number of days on the market that the average house sold for over the past several years. That number has been plummeting.

I do get the sense that there are a lot of sellers who have been on the sidelines for several years, wanting to sell but waiting for the right time. There is some concern that if all of that shadow inventory starts coming back on the market, there will be too many houses for buyers to absorb, leading to pressures to lower prices.

Averages to sell a home in New Hanover County
in 2012: 137 days on market
in 2013: 121 days on market
in 2014: 116 days on market
in 2015: 96 days on market
in 2016: 81 days on market

If you are not happy living where you are, maybe it's time to sell. My motto is, you only live once, you might as well live where you want to.
