One of the key headlines here is that housing prices have been steadily decreasing. Those that have been waiting to place an offer on a house are in luck. This means that new homebuyers can get their dream home in more cities. This is encouraging because it means that there are more opportunities out there.
There is a new attitude letting individuals breathe a little easier.
Let us look at this cultural shift and how it is opening the way for responsible real estate purchase.
The Current Home Purchase Culture
Inventory is increasing which means that the sky's the limit. There will soon be a higher level of options for new homebuyers and expert home buyers alike. This increase in inventory has caused sellers to realize that they must lower prices to remain competitive and attract buyers.
Demand Will Stay Strong Over the Long Term
Why is Texas so Appealing?
Texas is known for its low cost of living. This is beneficial for both homebuyers and corporations such as Toyota and Liberty Mutual which have established headquarters in Texas.
The lack of income tax and reasonable property taxes will continue to incentivize individuals to move to Texas. Texas has something for everyone. Some individuals will be more interested in living in areas that are more rural and have plenty of land. Others will want to live in the city and experience everything that a major metroplex has to offer.
There are Opportunities for More People in Desired Areas
The current conditions of the market make it so that everyone will be able to afford to live in their desired areas. Real estate agents are currently listing properties below anticipated value to get lots of interest.
This results in multiple offers and bids at appraisal value. To save money and still get the house of your dreams, it is important to stay on top of the market. The market changes and especially for new buyers buying at the right time can mean the difference between saving $50,000-$100,000 when purchasing a home. Some individuals can purchase a home by being the first ones to place an offer.
If you are interested in a home, do not wait to place an offer. Several communities have homes being newly constructed and there are some communities that are starting to be developed. This further proves the point that if you are interested in a house, now is the time to place an offer.
