November Market Update!

As we are heading towards the end of the year we are seeing a lot of buyers and circumstantial sellers. Circumstantial sellers are sellers that have a reason or situation that is putting them in the position of having to sell. The buyers that are shopping right now are serious buyers and looking to buy before the interest rates drop and millions more buyers reenter the market. When interest rates drop there will be more competition for buyers, because there is still not enough supply to me the buyers demand which is why we are seeing steady high prices.

Interest Rates at Just Under 8% Interest rates are a critical factor in the real estate market, and we’ve seen some notable changes recently. As of November, mortgage rates are hovering just under 8%. While they have inched up slightly, these rates are still historically low, making it a great time for buyers to secure financing for their dream homes. We recommend acting sooner rather than later to lock in these favorable rates before they potentially rise further.

Low Inventory and High Buyer Demand One of the key factors driving the current real estate market is the imbalance between housing supply and buyer demand, as mentioned earlier. Inventory remains at historically low levels, with not enough homes available to meet the growing demand from buyers. This competitive environment has led to multiple offers on many properties, pushing prices higher.

What Does This Mean for Buyers?

For buyers, this market presents both opportunities and challenges. Here’s how you can make the most of the current situation:

1. Be Prepared: It’s crucial to have your financing in order and be pre-approved for a mortgage. This will give you a competitive advantage when submitting offers.
