Summer Home-Buying Season

As we reach the end of our record Summer Home-Buying Season, indicators are pointing to one of the hottest fall seasons in a decade. Records show homes for sale in September were moving 4% quicker than last year’s as prices are continuing to hit new highs. Inventories are lower than a year ago and fewer new listings are coming on board during the past few months – which starts to “fringe” on a supply and demand situation.

Although those buyers got locked out of the summer because of vast competition, they may find this fall is still presenting a decent inventory with mortgage rates still near all-time lows. But anyone shopping for “bargains” will find that prices have not come down from the summer’s record high prices. As we enter the traditionally slower sales season, the built-up demand continues to be steady as buyers are racing to get a home under contract while mortgage rates remain low.

So whether you are a seller or buyer, the time is great for either side to achieve their dreams. If you are looking to downsize, sell while prices are high and look into other forms of housing (Retirement homes, Assisted Living, etc) and enjoy life – or if you’re looking to buy, check into the market and buy while mortgage rates are low making your monthly outlay reasonable and affordable.
