What does all of this mean for Apex homeowners?


If you currently own a home in Apex, your equity in that home is at an all-time high! Due to the low number of homes available for sale in Apex, there are a large number of buyers competing for those homes and driving up prices in the process (think simple supply and demand). If you’ve ever considered selling your home, now is a wonderful time to maximize the amount of money you can take with you for that next chapter in life, whatever it may be.


If you’ve considered selling your home to an online homebuyer for the sake of convenience or to avoid having to show your home, note that 25% of homes that sold in April this year did so without a single showing! Marketing your home to the large number of buyers who want to live in Apex vs. just one internet investor is a no-brainer in this market right now.


Curious what your Apex home could be listed for in today’s market?

What does all of this mean for home buyers in Apex?


If you are interested in buying a home in Apex, be prepared to compete against other buyers for that home. Because of that, it's even more important than ever to know the market well so that you make a competitive offer and get into a home quickly while prices (and interest rates) continue to rise each month.


Be prepared to offer more than the listed price for a home. 95% of homes that sold in April 2022 sold for at or above the list price, with the average home selling for 12% over the list price. If you are obtaining a loan to purchase your home, this may mean that you need some extra cash to do so in the event you offer more than the appraised value of the home.


You may also want to consider the possibility of making an offer on a home before getting the chance to go inside, as 25% of the homes that sold last month did so before showings began.
