Buyers jump on lower interest rates. The number of Spring Texas homes under contract jumped 15% 📈week over week. While the number of new listings minimally increased, the number of available homes dipped 2.5%.
Months of inventory remained constant at 2.3 months. Six months is considered a balanced market. Anything less than 6 months is considered a sellers market. We are in a strong sellers market but we are not in the red hot sellers market of 2023 when there were 24% fewer homes available for sale.
If you are planning to buy in 2024 and your financial position allows you to do it at today’s interest rate, buy now and refinance later. You will get a better deal today than you will when the demand increases.
If you are planning to sell in 2024, the answer as to when to sell is going to vary based upon your situation. Are you wanting to wait until the end of the school year? Are you being relocated for a job? Is the reason for your desire to sell due to a death? Are you wanting to downsize or upsize? The answer to when the right time to sell depends.
