What’s the difference between a buyer’s and seller’s market?
The real estate market is one of the more complicated markets with numbers fluctuating constantly. Investing in a home can be scary, but knowing the difference between a buyer’s and seller’s market can do one of two things. (1) Get you the best price for a new home or (2) Sell your home for top dollar.
A buyer’s market is an economic situation in which homes are plentiful and buyers can keep prices down. More home are for sale in the given market than buyers. An advantage is that buyer’s can take their time on offers and weigh all options before purchasing a home. Home prices may go down because sellers may be anxious to sell.
A seller’s market is an economic situation in which homes are scarce and seller’s can keep prices high. An advantage in a seller’s market is prices rise and buyer’s quickly make an offer to secure property.
What determines a buyer’s and seller’s market?
Sales to Listing Ratio: Number of sales is compared to number of listings taken. If the result is 55% or higher, it is a seller’s market. If the results are 35% or lower, it is a buyer’s market.
Another way to gage the type of market… When most homes take more than six months to sell, it is a buyer’s market. When homes are selling in less than 24 hours, it is obviously a seller’s market.
