State of The Market

This is where it starts to get a little complicated. Like we talked about earlier, homes are a unique asset. With that being said, you can’t just shop for a new home like you shop for groceries. Although the price of groceries does fluctuate every once in a while, it’s not a day-to-day thing, and it won’t affect you enormously if the price of milk goes up five cents. However, imagine you spent your whole life saving up for that jug of milk. All of a sudden that five cents makes a huge difference.

The real estate market is similar in that the prices of homes are fluctuating by the thousands practically daily. If you’re like most people, you probably haven’t spent the last ten years following everything that’s going on in the market, so it can be a little disorienting. One important distinction to make is the difference between a buyer’s market and a seller’s market.

Buyer’s market

A buyer’s market refers to a market where there are more houses on the market than there are buyers. If you’re a seller, this means that your house will be on the market longer and likely sell at a lower price point.

Seller’s market

A seller’s market is the opposite of a buyer’s market meaning that there are not enough houses on the market to meet the demands of buyers. When this is the case, sellers can expect their home to sell quicker and at a higher price point.

Local factors

It’s important to realize that housing markets are highly localized. Although it’s important to understand the overall condition of the housing market throughout the United States, your local housing market is even more important to understand. If you’re looking to sell your home, you’re first going to need to speak with an experienced realtor who has experience buying and selling in your area.
