The real estate market is still very active. Buyers continue to purchase homes despite the challenges. There were 25 showings for each home for sale last month, which shows how competitive the market is. Buyers should look at homes significantly below what they’re willing to pay, since the final price will likely be much higher than the list price. In fact, on average, buyers had to offer 105.20% of list price to get the homes they wanted last month. Homes priced at the top of the market may not even be seen by buyers who expect to pay higher-than-list-price for a home. It’s important for sellers to position their properties as a good value in order to get the most interest and receive the most offers possible.
Remember that last May, the market was almost completely locked down, with very little activity. Therefore, there are fairly extreme differences between this May and last May.
