A homeowner came in to my office today to list his home for sale. We discussed a recent news article that both of us had read that prices were up but that the number of closed sales were down. We discussed the lack of homes for sale in our real estate market as the probable cause of both the higher prices and the lower number of closed sales.
When you have 3 or more buyers making offers on the same house, it stands to reason that the number of closings would go down because only one of the buyers got the home. The other buyers are still looking for their own home and will probably enter another multiple offer situation when the next home comes on the market.
Success in buying comes at a cost of patience. Some buyers end up making offers on 2 or 3 homes before they come out on top. It is possible that they may have to offer above list price to get their home.
Home prices are still at bargain levels even if a buyer pays more than list price to win. With the low interest rates that still exist, monthly payments can still be very affordable.
