The Oldham Group Austin | Summer Market Stabilizes

As summer begins to wind down the data from the last two months indicates our market is stabilizing. Today we find ourselves in a more buyer-friendly environment. Here are some of things we’re starting to see as the market corrects:

BUILDER INCENTIVES 

 

New home builders are starting to offer perks. These incentives vary by builder but can include buying down mortgage rates, seller-paid closing costs, fancier finishes and amenities, and lowering or not charging premiums for corner lots or views. Builders are also hosting events and parties again. 

PRICE REDUCTIONS

After two years of runaway prices, the housing market is starting to correct. It’s simply acting more normal…not everything is selling in one weekend.  Savvy sellers are moving quickly to make price adjustment that align with market conditions and new buyer expectations. Keep in mind that prices are still appreciating overall, but that is slowing. 

MORE INVENTORY

The mortgage environment is obviously less favorable today, but buyers can certainly benefit from inventory levels that are much more favorable than they were 6 months ago. It’s hard to time the market perfectly so if you’re looking to buy, jump in and take advantage of more choices and little less competition. 

FLEXIBLE TERMS 

Sellers and lenders are looking for ways to keep buyers in the market. We’re seeing sellers offer interest rate buy-downs either in addition to or in lieu of making price reductions. Sellers are being more flexible with closing dates, paying for home warranties and even doing repairs. 

Buying or selling a home is always an exciting new chapter- it’s where some of the best moments happen! Most of the time life events aren’t perfectly timed with the market. If you need a house now, it’s a great time to shop. If you need to sell, take advantage of prices that are close to the peak of the market.
