With the effects of COVID-19 still pressing on our lifestyle choices and demands, many potential home buyers are no longer waiting for things to return to “normal” but rather have accepted that the new way we live is why they are looking to purchase homes now.
The interest rate has been extremely low, and although researchers predict an increase, that will still be nominal compared to years past. The inventory is still meager; throughout the entire country, with approximately only 500,000 homes available, but that number is expected to increase as well.
Many homeowners that have been on the fence about selling are ready to do so now. The reason or motive behind selling are unique to each individual, of course, but they are typically due to making a notable profit on home sales, moving into a larger, more spacious home, or for seniors, downsizing or moving into a senior community.
Supply and demand are thought to even out more in 2021 than we saw in 2020, for the sheer fact that people realize that working and spending time at home is not going to change much. Even though we are expected to see a significant amount of people getting the vaccine by the year’s end, we still have a ways to go to see real change, which could take years. Despite this optimistic look, we as a country and the world are going to see the virtual opportunities arise and the true staying power of technological advances.
Bidding wars are still presumed to grow, so if you are interested in buying, you need to be prepared to purchase. You must know your price range, and it’s optimal to have preapproval for your loan or funding. If you see a home you love, you don’t want to miss out.
If you are interested in buying or selling, it’s imperative that you seek out a realtor that knows the area, the comps in your area of interest, and one that can leverage potential buyers with specific needs and desires.
