REAL ESTATE INSIGHT

As housing market continues to cool, do we need some
Real Estate Therapy?

In the high-stakes world of real estate, buying or selling in a market like this can be perplexing.

A buyer, who may not have purchased yet, has seen their affordability change six times over the past six months due to rising interest rates. To make things more complicated, in a declining market, buyers run the risk that the home they purchased could be worth less a month later.

In the chart below, you’ll see home prices and sales in all markets continue to fall as the local housing market cools.

There are two questions buyers and sellers are asking themselves. Sellers ask “Should I sell now before home values decline further?” and buyers ask “Should I buy now or wait and see if home values continue to decline?”

It’s difficult to answer BUT one thing I do know, whether we like it or not, is that interest rates are approaching normal levels based on the past 25 years. Check out the 25-year graph, you might be surprised at what you see.

It’s not all doom and gloom. Rest assured, regardless of the ups and downs we’re experiencing, home prices will continue to rise in the long term. Think about what your home value is now and then simply double it. That’s what your home will be worth in ten years.

Real estate is by far the best investment you’ll make in your life.
