The price of any item (including residential real estate) is determined by 'supply and demand'. If many people are looking to buy an item and the supply of that item is limited, the price of that item increases.
According to the National Association of Realtors, the supply of homes for sale dramatically increases every spring. Putting your house on the market now instead of waiting for the increased competition of the spring might make a lot of sense.
Buyers in the market during the winter months are truly motivated purchasers. They want to buy now. With limited inventory available in most markets currently, a seller will be in a great position to negotiate.

The Fed today announced they would be pulling back some of their stimulus package which has helped the housing market by keeping long term mortgage rates at historic lows for the last few years. This should come as no surprise to TEAM NUVISION Clients as we have been warning of this likelihood over the last several months.
What it Means to You
In an article in MarketWatch today, Lawrence Yun, the Chief Economist at NAR, explained that sellers looking to move-up (to a better school district or larger home) "need to realize that it could be more challenging a year from now." Yun stated the average 30-year mortgage rate currently hovers at 4.3%, but that could rise to 5% or 5.5% next year.
What it Does NOT Mean to the Housing Market
Some reports will now claim that housing prices will have to drop as interest rates begin to rise. There is no historical evidence of this. Below is the chart showing the last four instances of mortgage rates rising dramatically and what happened to home values at the time.
First time buyer or a move-up buyers should make the move earlier in 2014 instead of later as mortga rates will probably increase as the year goes on.
