Low local inventory brings a push for new listingsFebruary 13, 2013 @ 9:10 am
Inventories of for-sale homes are so tight in some Puget Sound neighborhoods that some agents are writing homeowners letters or even going door to door asking if the owners would be willing to sell.
Some homeowners have no clue how much their home is worth right now with demand up, agents say. They may discover it makes financial sense for them to move.
Real estate professionals are also trying to keep on top of lifestyle changes of past clients. For example, if someone is becoming an empty nester, they may be looking to downsize soon, or if a family is expanding, the client may want to upsize.
Realtors also looking at reviving expired listings.
