Sellers: degree of competitiveness not going to let up in the next 8-12 weeks. High end sellers really should take advantage of the market ASAP before the fairytale market for selling big homes ends. Which will happen, eventually.

Buyers: wow, it’s just not going to get better this spring. If you have first time buyers that can extend leases a few months and look in the summer vs. now, that might be a good idea. as much as I hate to say wait, I just don’t see the buyer demand falling off.
