Hi, I’m Dedra Hughes, Mercer Hughes Real Estate Group. And I’m here today with Olivia Laverenz. She is the newest member of our family here, and I wanted to tell us a little bit about coming into real estate and what that’s been like.
Yeah. So I’ve always had a love for real estate, so I just started, and my favorite thing is being able to build a relationship with the client, whether it’s your starter home or your forever home.
Well, one thing is true. She is a natural. She knows how to think real estate. More than that, she knows how to serve people. But I want you to tell us a little bit about what you’ve been told you’re a natural at.
Thank you. So what I love the most and what I feel out of natural at is when I’ve got these sellers that need to get top dollar for their home, I will go into their home and being able to tell them, hey, this may need some updating, and then being able to execute that for them.
She’s very good with the details, and she said the word execute. She’s very good at bringing all the people to the table to help get your home ready and get top dollar. And I want to talk a little bit about inventory, Olivia, because we’ve been at such a low inventory for the last several months, almost two years, I would say, and we are starting to see the inventory rise a bit, maybe 10 to12 percent in the area. People are concerned. That’s not a bad thing. It’s not a bad thing for the buyers to have choices, but we’re still not at a level where I think it’s going to harm sellers as long as they choose the right price and the right condition for their home. We need a healthy market, and that’s what we’re getting back to. That’s what we’re looking forward to. We’ve spoken before about rates, and people are talking about, oh, my goodness, our rate is going to hit 6%. I remember the day when I was hoping for 6, 7, even 8% on mortgages. So healthy market, good time, whether you’re buying or selling, to give Mercer Hughes a call, ask for Olivia or ask for any of our agents here, and let us help you reach your real estate goals.
