Real Estate Market Update for 2024
Dated: January 6 2024
As we embark on a new year, it appears that 2024 will be an exciting year for the real estate market. I recently attended a meeting where I learned about two homes that have already generated immense interest and showings. With interest rates declining, buyers seem eager to make their move, and it looks like the pent-up demand is finally being unleashed. But what does this mean for homeowners and sellers? In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the current state of the real estate market and explore some potential opportunities that homeowners could take advantage of.
It looks like the real estate market is heating up, and we're already seeing significant interest from prospective buyers. According to recent reports, a home listed for $640,000 in Springfield had 27 showings scheduled within a day! Additionally, a home priced at $800,000 in Falls Church already had two sight-unseen offers and 50 showings scheduled. With the interest rates dropping, buyers seem enthusiastic about acquiring a home, and this could be an exciting opportunity for homeowners looking to put their homes on the market.
As a homeowner, you're probably wondering what this means for you. Right now, it appears that the inventory in Potomac Shores is favorable for sellers, at least for the next few weeks. However, two possible situations could arise. If rates continue to decrease, and listing inventory builds up during the spring market, home prices will flatten out, and there could be a decrease in prices if there's a rush of sellers. Alternatively, if rates continue to decrease and sellers remain in place, home prices could increase. Therefore, if you're considering selling your home, now might be the right time to start exploring your options.
In this current climate, there seems to be a high demand from buyers, and it could be an advantageous time to sell. Typically, the inventory climbs to its highest by March 1st and goes flat for the summer around May 15th. In a tight inventory market, having less competition can drive up your price. So, if you're a homeowner looking to maximize your home value, larger spring crowds could be a welcome sight, especially if you're considering waiting until the summer.
Finally, it's worth noting that VA and FHA rates are down to 5.2%, and conventional is at 6.375%. We are observing builders and buyers securing interest rates in the 4s; therefore, it could be a strong spring market, with buyers coming out early this year. With the current market conditions, if you've been considering selling your home, this could be a prime opportunity to generate significant interest and get the best value for your property.
