Chuck Hawkins and his wife put their Surprise house on the market on a Friday afternoon. By the following Monday, it sold for $55,000 over the asking price.
A “golden egg,” as Chuck described it, but one that is a prime example of the strong seller’s market the northwest Valley has become.
The housing market in the Valley is experiencing one of its strongest seller’s markets, and it is expected to stay one for a few years. Myranda Shields, a managing partner and Realtor at CM Home Realty, sold Hawkins’ house in Surprise, and said, “this is the strongest seller’s market I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
