Market Update, April 1, 2021

If you read our updates, you know we’re in a seller’s market, but you may be wondering what we mean when we say that.

Housing prices respond to supply and demand. Right now, there’s high demand for homes and not much supply. In real estate, we often look at “months of supply” or “months of inventory.” This is a measure of how long it would take to sell every home for sale now, without any new homes coming on the market.

A market favors sellers when there are six months of supply or less, and favors buyers when there are more than seven months of supply. If there are six months of supply, it’s a fairly balanced market.

Right now, in most parts of the metro area, we have about three weeks of inventory! This means sellers have an edge when it comes to negotiations and homes are appreciating. Buyers are competing to get the homes they want and creating the most attractive offers they can. Sellers are getting prices and terms that work for them.

Everyone is asking – what do we expect in the future? Will prices fall? We don’t think so.

Take a look at this graph that shows average area home prices since 2009. Prices go up and down, certainly, but they’ve risen pretty steadily for a long time and we don’t see the long-term trend changing. Home prices may dip for short periods here and there, level off, or rise more slowly, but we don’t think they’ll fall. No one can know precisely when the market will hit a peak or reach a bottom. With interest rates creeping up, now may be a perfect time to make your move.
