Why is It Still The Seller’s Market?
Because of the high mortgage rates, many sellers were reluctant to put their homes on the market, making this a seller’s market even today. These properties are now highly sought-after by those serious about buying a home. It is also a market that benefits sellers because they hold most of the power and can decide whether to sell their homes now or wait for interest rates to fall and the market to get out of control. We used these terms because many buyers will emerge from hiding to purchase homes in the upcoming first quarter of this year. Due to the intense competition to purchase their homes, this will be a fantastic opportunity for the sellers. In light of this, if you are a seller, you shouldn’t worry and should instead rest assured that things will only get better for you moving forward.
This is a seller’s market, not because we are seeing astronomically high home sales but because we are still getting excellent, reliable deals. This demonstrates that well-priced homes are always in high demand and sought-after buyers. Finally, we advise thorough planning before engaging in any market activity. The interest rate is expected to drop when patient buyers start looking for homes in the coming year. If you take advantage of that opportunity, you might be able to make a lot of money.
