There is still no sign of anything looking like a typical spring real estate market. Sales are low because of extremely limited inventory, rapidly rising prices, and economic uncertainty, now compounded by rising interest rates and inflation. There is little for sale that could be considered “affordable” and there are few good paths for first-time home buyers. But serious buyers still outnumber sellers, even at these lower levels of activity. So competition for the few available homes is fierce, and buyers must be prepared to make some serious concessions to win what are usually bidding wars. And while the current market may be good news for sellers, that is most likely countered by the market conditions they must then face in buying a replacement home. This isn’t a comfortable situation for any of us, but we’re working hard to provide what help we can to our clients while we all wait for conditions to improve.
