What Does This Mean For Buyers?
For buyers, the outlook at this time is not good. Interest rates are up and single-family home prices are higher year to year. While many buyers are sidelined by affordability factors there is still a great deal of competition for the few homes available. Buyers who are in the market for a home are up against not only higher prices but overbidding of properties, buyers should be prepared to make above asking price offers for a home.
What Does This Mean For Sellers?
While there is a continuing demand for homes, rising inflation and interest rates are sidelining many potential buyers and some sellers are seeing their property take longer than average to sell. Sellers who are thinking of selling their home should be realistic about acquiring property, with low inventory, a seller may sell their home quickly but may find it difficult to locate a property to buy.
As the summer season continues in North Texas the real estate market overall should be quite active. While a slowdown is expected, homeowners may see a flattening of home values and prices as we enter the fall season.
