June Real Estate News

By Denise Storm - June 26, 2023



Let Summer Begin!

From farmer's markets to festivals, hiking and biking and time on the water, this is a special time of year to enjoy everything the area has to offer. With schools out for the summer and visitors flocking to our market, it's an invigorating time to be part of the community and experience all the summer months have to offer. See below for some of our favorite picks of things to do and see in the next few weeks and months.

Making Sense of the Market

Despite the lower numbers and an increase of days on market as reflected in the chart below, real estate fundamentals are reemerging and driving success for buyers and sellers. Well-priced homes that are in great condition before coming to market are receiving attention from a robust buyer pool trying to enter the market or who are making shifts in their current housing here in the valley. Buyers, who are prepared to act quickly in active markets, have been rewarded.

The overall pace of the real estate market continues to lag previous years (to be expected) but primarily it is hindered by inventory and seller's (or potential seller's) concerns about replacement properties if remaining in the area. Market-priced homes continue to attract multiple offers, a clear indication that buyer activity remains strong despite headwinds at a macro-level. For buyers financing, forecasts show that mortgage interest rates should decline over the next 12 months and that may lead to even more activity. Either way, with limited inventory, there is no sign of a marked decline in values. If anything, they are stable though a few pockets of the market have experienced some softening - mostly due to affordability. Contact me today to discuss your specific area of interest or your property's value, and we'll make a plan specific to your needs.
