FED Raises Rates to Slow Down the Market

Things are a little confusing right now… the FED has raised interest rates with an intent to slow down the market, however all that this has done is push more people into hurrying up and buying (which is a smart move) which in turn has caused for our inventory levels to stay low. As you all know because I say it almost every week… Low Inventory + High Demand = Increase in Prices. This factor combined with tax returns and the spring selling season ahead of us, is a recipe for a strong growing market.

Here are some numbers to back that up:
Closed Sales decreased 0.7% for Detached homes however Pending Sales increased 14.2% and the Inventory level decreased 24.3%. The Median Sales Price was up 5.6% to $559,500 for Detached homes and 7.8% to $378,750 for Attached homes. Days on Market decreased 2.3% for Detached homes and 22.0% for Attached homes. All these stats are pointing to a market not ready to slow down.



With low inventory you are likely to see multiple offer situations once you find the home you want.

Do these 4 things now to avoid missing out on your dream home:

1) Get Pre-Approved for a loan.

2) Find out how much you will need for downpayments and closing costs, and have those funds set aside.

3) Find an agent who will be patient with you, who won’t try and rush you, and hire that agent.

4) Setup automated search updates on a website you like, then you’ll be updated on all the homes in the area you want to buy in. Use other sources besides Zillow.
