What Does This Mean For Buyers?
Buyers searching for a home or condo in the Tampa, Florida area should be prepared to act as soon as a property is found. Competition among buyers is intense and prices are reflective of that. The lack of inventory is driving up prices for the few homes available. Buyers should have financing in place, interest rates are rising and if you are planning on buying a home this year, now is the time secure a good rate.
The good news for buyers is that as prices inch upward and interest rates climb some buyers will be priced out of the market or wait until prices come down. The market is due for a correction, buyers should have a plan in place, be realistic with their expectations and work closely with their realtor to find a good property at a reasonable price.
What Does This Mean For Sellers?
For sellers in the Tampa area, the market is a mixed bag, while there is strong demand for housing, some sellers are declining to sell because of inability to find a new home. This is creating a lack of inventory and driving prices upward. Depending on your objectives when you sell your home, expect your home to sell quickly and possibly above the asking price. With the exception of four-bedroom condos, two, three, and four-bedroom phones have all seen their prices go up over the last year.
The market should continue favoring sellers for the remainder of the summer buying season. Sellers should be aware that as interest rates rise, there may be a slowdown in demand which will cause prices to drop. Sellers should have a plan in place and be prepared for any shifts in the market that could affect their sale price. Sellers should work closely with their realtor to get their home priced correctly, listed, and shown to the most qualified of buyers.
