Happy New Year everyone! 2023 is here and the Real Estate market continues to normalize. Sales volume overall has dropped quickly since last Summer and inventory has filled in, so supply and demand has shifted. We are seeing longer days on market for sellers (avg. 49 days) as well as negotiations taking place, dropping our avg. listing price to sales price ratio down to 92.9%. This shows that the playing field between Buyers and Sellers is shifting and we will continue to see it move up and down until rates and prices find a good balance. Speaking of rates, keep in mind that this is the biggest driver of our price fluctuation. I know that you've seen your fair share of doom and gloom in the media, but don't get wrapped up in it! We witnessed the biggest weekly mortgage-rate drop in 40 years in November. Not much news on that... There is always huge opportunity in shifting markets. I check in with my preferred lenders often to keep my finger on the pulse, and many sources right now do suggest that rates could come down over the next year and provide some relief. This will of course keep prices strong and the market moving forward. If you are a Buyer in this market I highly suggest strategies like a delayed rate buy down to make your payments affordable upfront and utilize your extra credits towards a refinance once/if the rates drop again. Now might be a great time for Buyers to negotiate a good deal and have the sellers put credit towards their purchasing power. - Greg
