How to Be a Home Buyer in a Sellers Market

If you’re a home buyer looking for your dream home, or are thinking about buying a home, you may have heard that it’s a sellers market. Lower inventory in the Austin area, combined with an increase in average home prices have made it a great time to sell. But what does that mean for you, the home buyer? Some home buyers can get frustrated during a sellers market because homes typically sell quickly and multiple offers are not uncommon. That dream home you may have had your eye on this week might be sold the next, or that perfect home you found on the internet went under contract 3 days ago, or you see a home just listed online only to find out there are already 2 offers on it. Although these scenarios can leave you frustrated and maybe ready to give up on home buying altogether, this is where working with a Realtor can be a BIG help.

Often, Realtors find out about homes that are going on the market even before they’re listed through networking with other agents and real estate professionals. If your agent knows what you’re looking for, he/she can keep a lookout for these listings before they show up online giving you an edge as a home buyer.

Our team is constantly networking with other Keller Williams agents to find homes for our buyers needs, and we’d love to help you too! Give us to call (512-829-2062) to discuss you needs and let us help you find your dream home!

Most recent Austin MLS statistics – Good news for sellers!

The most recent Austin MLS statistics are in. And, as you can see from the charts below, there’s some good news and some bad news. The good news is, average sold prices are up approximately 11% MLS-wide, and almost 28% in the Dripping Springs area! The bad news? Low inventory.

Low inventory is a problem in many markets throughout the country. In a healthy market a particular neighborhood would have six months of inventory. Many neighborhoods are seeing inventory as low as one or two months. This means home buyers are not finding the homes they are looking for.

Eric Sachs, President and Co-founder of BreakthroughBroker.com, said he speaks with Realtors throughout the country, and the main concern voiced by Realtors is that there are not enough listings.

So what does this mean for you? As the spring selling season approaches, now is the time to list if you have thought about selling in the past or may want to sell in the future. With average sales prices up, and interest rates still relatively low, it’s a win-win situation for you and the buyers that may be searching for exactly what your home has to offer. Call us today (512-829-2062) to see how we can help you get the most money for your home and help you in your next real estate purchase.
