April Market Update
With home buyers paying a 3%-5% Covid Premium, NOW is a great time to sell!
Interest rates have fallen under 3% with 15-year mortgages at 2.5%. This has caused a surge in buyer’s demand and brought back multiple contract scenarios for homes that are priced and marketed correctly. If this spring sees a huge increase in inventory, as expected, that premium may be gone!
Low interest rates, low inventory, covid migration, and vaccines in a non-election year will fuel 2021
- For every 1% interest rates fall, a buyer can afford 13% more home. This means a Jan 2020 buyer looking at $750,000 homes can now afford $850,000 without increasing their payment. Adding to demand are buyers no longer tethered to commuting to the office everyday and in a new influx of tech employers coming to the area
- The supply of listings has been somewhat restricted by sellers reluctant to put their homes on the market during covid. This should change in 2021
- Econ 101: When demand is stimulated, and supply is restricted things go BOOM
- What to Watch: Keep and eye on interest rates and listing inventory. They will be the main drivers in 2021.
