Well, here we are! Can you believe summer has come? The warm weather has certainly warmed up the real estate market. We are finding that as our economy starts opening up, real estate has never really closed down.
Sellers: This is an amazing time for sellers, as many who have contemplated selling have paused, due to the coronavirus threat. Many of the vulnerable population have decided to wait this out a bit or to move out of their new homes first and sell once they have vacated the property they are moving from. Therefore, those who have chosen to market their homes during this time are enjoying multiple offers and high demand for nearly all properties that are in good repair and ready for an eager buyer to call home. We may see inventory begin to rise as the lockdowns ease up and people start getting back to what “normal” will look like from here on out; yet we would have to see almost triple the inventory with no change in buyer demand to actually find ourselves in a shift to a more balanced market.
Buyers: This is an amazing time for buyers, as well, with the lowest interest rates we have ever seen in the market. Be aware, that as inventory remains low and interest rates remain low, prices will continue to rise, so this will become a factor in the buying decision of many who would like to enter the market at lower price points. We are finding nearly every well priced home in the under $300,000 market will likely see multiple offers. We like to educate buyers before they choose to enter this competitive market, so that they can be fully prepared for the tenacity and aggressive actions needed to secure a home, especially in the lower price ranges.
