Most agents will tell you that once we hit late October into November the real estate market slows considerably. Except when it is 2020, the year like none other!
Now that the books are closed for the month of October, let’s evaluate where the market stands. The pandemic shifted the traditional home-selling season from Spring into Summer and Summer into Fall, but there are two major trends impacting supply and demand:
- Record low inventory causing low housing supply
- Record low interest rates causing unprecedented demand
For many, the market is quite confounding since both buyers and sellers benefit from the current market conditions.
For sellers, there has been no better time to sell for the highest price possible and in the shortest time. Move-in ready homes are off the market before the first weekend with multiple offers.
While it is true that buyers are having to pay higher prices they have more buying power because of the low interest rates.
