Hot Markets in Real Estate
Posted on August 15, 2014
The volatile nature of the Northwest Florida real estate market can make it difficult for both buyers and sellers to fully understand what they are up against. Although conditions can change rapidly, the key to a successful real estate transaction will often rest in understanding the different type of market conditions.
To some extent it is true that you should put aside the state of the market and sell, or buy when it best suits you. However, a little industry knowledge has the potential to help you distinguish those advantageous times.
For instance, the best time for a seller to list their property is when the market is hot. In a hot market, buyers outnumber the availability of homes, and more often than not, homes will sell for more than their original asking price. Alternatively, a cold market benefits home buyers. This is because listings sit and consequently begin to drop in price.
Currently, the real estate market is on the cusp of a rebound. The market is returning to a normal state where the number of sellers is fairly equivalent to the number of buyers. At this time, the best thing you can do, is be realistic about your expectations. As always, your goal should be to find the right home at the best possible price.
