Is the Market Changing?

September 15, 2021

Make no mistake about it, it’s still a hot market. There are just more choices which gives the buyers a chance to breath and make more deliberate decisions.

As we come into the Fall selling season, we have seen more inventory come onto the market which gives buyers a little more choice and little more breathing room to make smarter decisions.  The market is still hot, it’s just not as “white hot” as it once was.

Here is what Odeta Kushi , Deputy Chief Economist from Corelogic has to say:

“It’s not the white-hot market from earlier in the year & it’s not the 2020 market benefiting from a wave of pent-up demand but make no mistake this is still a hot housing market. Purchase apps slow modestly week-over-week but remain above 2019 levels. (the strongest in a decade!).”

Quote from Odette Kushi Corelogic

Although there is more time for buyers to make decisions, they will still need to move fast.  Speed and the pace of sales are contributing factors to today’s competitive housing market. According to the latest Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average home is on the market for just 17 days. As the report notes:

Nationally, homes were on the market for less than month


Bottom Line

Don’t delay a decision. This is an extremely fast moving market. The combination of housing supply challenges, low mortgage rates, and extremely motivated buyers gives sellers a the upper hand. If you’re thinking about making a move, let’s chat about why it makes sense to list your house now.
