Active listings fell once again. New listings declined 11.58% from June and Total Active Listings fell 2.55%. As suggested last month, declining home inventories usually suggests increasing prices. However, that was not the case in July. Average List Price fell by 3.09%. Declining prices in the face of reduced home inventory suggests demand (aka buyers) are waiting. Waiting for “what” is the question to be answered.
July cash buyers remained constant at 26% of sales. Conventional loans now stand at 4o% of sales. This may suggest that investor buying is slowing in the face of higher prices. Hopefully, the Fed will easy restrictions on lending and bring first time home buyers and self employed individuals back into the market.

If you “really” want the home, make a “reasonable” offer. We work with our buyers to present an offer – THEY – feel good about. Some low ball offers are getting the job done. Some aren’t.
You have to ask yourself, “will I feel bad if I don’t get this house?” If the answer is no, then put in an offer you would feel is a steal and see what happens. If the answer is yes, put in an offer you and your realtor think is reasonable.
We will work with you to understand you objectives and analyze the market to determine – as best we can – a price range for the home you want to buy or sell.
