Real estate agents have to be ready to go at a moment’s notice as houses are going quickly, at escalated prices, and if buyers are a minute late you could lose a shot at a house, area agents said.
Asa Cox, owner of Century 21 Asa Cox Homes, sells houses in Lake and Ashtabula counties. “We have sold 500 homes in Lake and Ashtabula counties,” Cox said.
During the same time period last year a total of about 325 houses were sold. She said things are so hot for sellers that one house recently got 58 looks in a two day period.
Cox said there are offers coming in as high as $50,000 over asking price.
