Highlights & Forcast
Why you shouldn’t wait to sell your house:
- Even though supply of homes for sale has grown in 2023, inventory is still low overall
- While demand has eased in 2023, millennials (the largest generation and a significant driving force for buyer demand) are still looking for homes.
- Homeowners have gained significant equity in your current home & that can be a game changer when it is time to make a move.
While 2022 may be remembered as a year of housing volatility, 2023 likely will become a year of long-lost normalcy returning to the market, economists predicted during the recent National Association of REALTORS®’ annual Real Estate Forecast Summit. Mortgage rates are expected to stabilize while home sales and prices moderate after recent highs, according to NAR’s forecast.
