What’s For Sale in the Housing Market? Only Half the Usual Inventory

The housing market is currently experiencing a unique situation, with only half of the typical inventory available for potential buyers. This is due to many factors, including chronic under building for the last 14 years and the low interest rates we had just a couple of years ago. This has resulted in many people hesitating to list their homes for sale. Very few homes for sale and higher interest rates.

“There are simply not enough homes for sale. The market can easily absorb a doubling of the inventory.”

Lawrence Yun  Chief Economist for N.A.R.

The real estate market can be overwhelming, especially for first-time homebuyers or sellers. With so many options to choose from and so many factors to consider, here are some steps you can take to make the process less daunting.

One of the best things you can do is to work with Gary and Lisa, qualified and experienced real estate agents. They can help you navigate the market, understand your options, and make informed decisions. Additionally, it’s important to do your own research and understand the local market conditions in your area. This can give you a better sense of what to expect and what to look for when buying or selling a home.

Another key factor to keep in mind is to stay organized and focused. Make a list of your priorities, such as the features you want in a home or the price you’re willing to pay, and stick to them. Don’t let yourself get distracted by properties or offers that don’t align with your goals.

Finally, remember to be patient and take your time. Buying or selling a home is a major decision, and it’s important to give yourself the space and time you need to make the right choice. With the right support and a clear plan in place, you can navigate the real estate market with confidence and ease.
