Market Minute

There are some distinct advantages to buying or selling at the end of the year. Here are the top 3.

LIMITED COMPETITION: For sellers, the limited amount of competition in December makes it an advantageous time to list.

TAX BENEFITS: If you close on the home before the end of the year, you can deduct certain costs/expenses from your tax return.

MOTIVATION: Buyers and sellers looking in December are typically very motivated to close the deal.

Texas Housing Insight Report
Texas A& M Real Estate Center

“The housing market continues to cool as increasing mortgage interest rates quickly diminish housing affordability. In September, home sales fell more than 15 percent over the year. Under the aggressive monetary policies, housing demand will not recover any time before the central banks see significant progress on inflation. Home prices had been depreciating, and Austin—the metro that inflated the most during 2021—saw the largest depreciation during the market’s abrupt slowdown.” Full Report
