It should come as no surprise that here in the Texas Hill Country we have stepped into a new season of real estate. Over the past two years the market has rapidly shifted. Today is a season where we are stabilizing and seeing normal interest rates and normal prices. This will offer opportunities for both sellers and buyers. This current market calls for sellers and buyers to choose a professional Realtor with a lot of experience who can assist clients in working through market strategies for the best results.
If you look at the national real estate headlines, you’ll be misinformed on what is going on in San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country, our market is stable and thriving. Many sellers and buyers are very comfortable with this stabilizing market allowing them great opportunities right now. There is not an interest rate issue on our forefront, but rather an inventory issue making for a strong market for sellers.
Currently in our area we are experiencing two months of inventory, while there is still a shortage of primary housing supply. It is a great time to be a seller, the fact that spring is here and coupled with a shortage in the housing market makes for a beautiful opportunity for sellers to take advantage of a great market. No longer can sellers offer their homes in “as is” condition, they are expected to put their property on the market in great condition to receive top dollar. That’s why hiring the right Realtor is even more important than ever. Showcasing your home and making sure you are aligned with a Realtor that will market for success will give you the best advantage for top dollar. Sellers who lack guidance and preparation in showcasing their home in today’s market will not be able to reap the best benefit and maximum dollar.
Are you a buyer entering today’s real estate market? A season of stabilization is good for you as well. Interest rates have seen significant fluctuation over the past few months, but they are now stabilizing and you should feel confident that now is the best time to invest in real estate. Look forward to capitalizing on your home and avoiding multiple offers or negotiating low sales price because of necessary repairs.Partnering yourself with a professional Realtor, brings benefits and connections with lenders, contractors, and service providers. For example, mortgage lenders can advise and provide strategies that will enable negotiating the payment desired, utilizing buy downs, recasting, or advise for future use.
Find a Realtor who will take care of you and be your best advocate for you in the market while confidentially supporting you in purchasing your next investment.
