Strong Demand for homes Puts Sellers Out Front
Market Recovery is in the air this Spring and Sellers are definitely feeling a spring in their step. March was a strong month with the number of closed sales up again. Our listing are getting strong showings and selling at a good clip. We do need more listing as we have buyers waiting in the wings but lack of inventory is holding some back.
The low inventory, combined with a strong seasonal demand is not only pushing sales up but prices are also creeping up. The home buyers we are seeing now are shifting away from the distressed homes and looking predominantly in the conventional market. We are seeing multiple offers on home become a common occurrence. We see this in both the resale and new construction sales. If you're a buyer, make your offer a strong, good one or you are out of luck.
Other factors bolstering the Raleigh Home sales are the higher rent rates and the low interest rates. While it is probable that rents will remain high - interest rates will not remain low. All talking heads on TV, buzz in the mortgage arenas, and outward projections are pointing toward an increase in interest across the board. We are expecting higher mortgage rates in the 3rd and 4th quarters of this year.
Summer can't come too soon after this cold spring. With the warm weather comes the open house season and that will put buyers in homes looking to buy. People are moving to Raleigh and they are looking for that home that will get them in and settled by fall.
Sellers still need to make their home attractive and marketable. We are finding buyers that are willing to "rent for a year" until the home they want comes on the market. Buyers today are smart, savvy, educated and picky. They will buy homes that are attractive, clean, priced well, and maintained well. The demands of buyers are meeting the best of sellers and it is an interesting time.
