We are now comparing Covid to Covid markets, which I theorize will start balancing out the extreme percentage changes we have been seeing up until now.

The market seems to be opening up a bit with a longer supply of inventory, but we are still very solidly in a seller’s market.

First-time buyers and those looking in a price range under $250,000 are still in a highly competitive, very frustrating market but this could potentially be reflecting a light at the end of the tunnel.

Further Thoughts

I am really hoping we are finally coming to the balance in the market I’ve been talking about. Listening to the national numbers it seems that is proving to be where we are, but real estate is a very local industry so keeping national statistics in mind is good practice but the most weight needs to stay local. In real life, we are still seeing multiple offer situations and lines of people to get into new listings, but we are potentially at the beginning of the end of this. I say potentially because mid-summer is normally a slow time in the real estate industry with people on vacations and such, so that could be the driver behind the market catching its breath.
