Real Estate Market Report 2018

The value of real estate and the ability to get homes sold quickly are affected by supply and demand. When there is a small supply of homes relative to the demand by buyers, sellers may be able to ask more for their properties. When there is a large supply of homes relative to the number of people in­terested in buying, sellers can do a number of things to ensure they get the best price for their homes.

Sellers should:

  •  Be knowledgeable about the condition and price of similar homes that are available for sale.
  •  When determining an asking price, consider more closely the homes available for sale now rather than homes that sold in the past.
  • Consider paying loan discount points to lower a loan’s interest rate, making the loan payment more affordable.
  • Make minor repairs prior to allowing buyers to see the home.
  • If major repairs can not be made prior to putting the home on the market, notify buyers that repairs will be made in escrow or that a credit for repairs is being offered.
  • Make certain the home is clean and uncluttered.
  • Make certain their real estate broker uses numerous methods of advertising to attract poten­tial buyers.
  • Consider offering to pay buyer’s closing costs, making it possible for buyers with little cash to purchase the home.
  • Offer to pay for a home warranty for the buyer.

Supply and Demand

  • In the last few weeks the market has achieved a relative status point in terms of sales inventory. Although inventory is LOW to keep us in a seller's market. If the market heats up, prices are likely to resume to climb upwards.

Demand measured by the market action index is increasing and days-on-market is trending downward. Even though more properties are coming on to the market.
