The Anticipated Drop

In the month of April  2020, 110 homes sold on MLS. That’s 42 homes less than in March of 2020. For comparison, in April 2019, 150 homes sold on MLS, so numbers did drop from the previous year. However, has this affected home values? Let’s find out!

Low, Lower, Lowest

Low: Buyer Activity

Lower: Listing Inventory

Lowest: Interest Rates

= A Seller’s Market

We think that the drop in sales was definitely related to lower buyer activity due to the pandemic. We agree though with many of the other experts that there currently is a pent up demand as well as inventory that is just waiting to be unleashed. We still see lots of activity and can assure you, there are serious Buyers out there looking, however sales won’t increase unless there are also more homes on the market. The fact that inventory is so low is helping to keep prices stable. Combining that with interest rates still at historic lows makes it clear that we are definitely still in a Seller’s Market which brings us to the next question…

To Sell or Not to Sell?

Despite all the extra challenges when it comes to selling a home during a health crisis (face masks and gloves, oh my!), and against what you might think, right now is actually a pretty good time to sell your home. So if you have been on the fence about it, let’s chat! We can show you exactly what is happening in the marketplace so you can make an informed decision.
