If you want to vote in the upcoming Board election, the deadline to submit a valid application (if you are not already a BTCI member) is August 5th.
Just a reminder…“If you sell the property under which you joined BTCI and own or purchase other BTCI property, you must reapply for BTCI membership under the new lot number.”Note – this applies to a surprisingly large number of people. People love Bent Tree and sometimes move around within the community.
A seller’s market arises when demand exceeds supply. In other words, there are many interested buyers, but the real estate inventory is low. Since there are fewer homes available, sellers are at an advantage.
In a seller’s market, homes sell faster, and buyers must compete with each other in order to score a property. These market conditions often make buyers willing to spend more on a home than they would otherwise. Therefore, sellers can raise their asking prices. Furthermore, the increased interest means that buyers rarely have the power to negotiate and are more willing to accept properties as-is.
Due to the shortage of housing, these conditions often lead to bidding wars. During bidding wars, buyers will make competing offers and drive up the price, typically above what the seller initially asked for.
