Market Strategies to Avoid Costly Mistakes
The market is becoming predictable and balanced. This is the perfect opportunity to take your time and not rush your decision.
We are seeing a shift in sale prices which will change the tactics for both buyers and sellers.
Buyers: many sellers are looking at offers as they come which means you have a chance to write an offer that won’t be competing with others. No blind bidding and suffering buyer’s remorse later on, if you have a home to sell you can probably write an offer subject to the sale of your current home, and include other important subject clauses to protect yourself.
Sellers: talk to your lender prior to listing your home!! You want to make sure you know how much you need to sell for in order to make your next purchase a reality. You are now competing with other sellers for buyers’ attention so you should focus on making (and keeping) your home show ready.
The multiple offer frenzy is now subsiding and we are entering into a balanced and stable market. Homes are not selling in hours, price reductions are happening and most homes are now selling for less than list price. We feel that the frenzy has slowed mostly because a new price point has been reached in many communities, not simply because of the interest rate hikes.
As we enter into this balanced market, both buyers can benefit from the chance to make informed decisions since they have TIME to perform their diligence when it comes to deciding on the right home. Sellers can benefit from taking TIME to negotiate and decide on the merits of an offer.
Sellers should expect their home to take a few weeks or even a few months to sell depending on the community, type of home, and list price. This is not a negative, it means that a new set of qualified buyers who couldn’t compete in the frenzied subject free, multiple offer market, will now emerge and write strong offers.
The other positive in a balanced market is that we can now use sales data to predict actual market values. This takes the guesswork out of how high to list a home and removes the “blind bidding” on the buyers’ side.
