Following the real estate market, you can hear it speaking. We felt the frenzy when higher interest rates were a threat, the silence when they hit, and the small thunder when the buyer returned. We are still experiencing a sellers market, slightly subdued in comparison to earlier this year.
If you are asking yourself if you have missed your chance to sell your house and make a move, the good news is you haven't. An abundance of motivated buyers are still out there. But you do need to price your home right for todays's market.
It is true buyer demand has slowed over the past few months as higher mortgage rates made it more expensive to buy a home. The result is fewer bidding wars and less competition among buyers. Don't forget, that is compared to the severely overheated market we experienced the past two years. Serious buyers are still active in the market and and are buying homes priced right.
If you are planning to sell your home, it is important to price it for today's market. As buyer demand softens, it is essential to understand this is not the same market as last year, or even the same as a few months ago. We are still in a strong sellers market
