Homeowners who have been reluctant to sell their homes are beginning to do an about-face, according to new research from Zillow.

As mortgage rates soared over the past couple of years, many homeowners put off selling. They were reluctant to give up mortgages with ultra-low rates, a legacy of the days before home loan costs exploded.

However, some of these folks may have grown tired of waiting for mortgage rates to plunge.

A recent Zillow survey of homeowners found that 21% of homeowners are thinking about selling within the next three years. A year ago, it was just 15%.

In a summary of the findings, Skylar Olsen, Zillow chief economist, says:

“Fortunately, rate lock appears to be wearing off for some homeowners, who show encouraging signs that they’re ready to come back to the market.”

In fact, some homeowners have become so eager to sell that they are taking aggressive steps to close the deal. Zillow says these are the markets with the most home sellers slashing prices.

In 1884, star baseball player Pete Browning of the Louisville Eclipse was in a slump. He asked woodworker John Andrew “Bud” Hillerich for a new bat. The bat Hillerich crafted instantly broke Browning’s slump, helping him to three hits in his next game. Thus, the Louisville Slugger — the most famous baseball bat in the world — was born.
