Enjoy!
Understanding the current market trends and future predictions is crucial for making informed decisions in real estate.
The market is showing signs of moving out of its recent sluggish phase. According to Morgan Stanley, the combination of falling home prices and increased inventory, primarily due to new construction, will create a more favorable environment for buyers by 2024. Then again, if rates are decreased by The Fed because of a recession, it’s easy to see how the market could quickly tilt in favor of sellers all over again. Inventory is still thin. Especially in the luxury real estate market.
Gaining insights from industry experts can provide a deeper understanding of the market dynamics.
Greg Kelman from Redfin and Mark Zandi of Moody’s echo similar sentiments, foreseeing a decrease in home prices and an uptick in buyer activity. This is as mortgage rates soften. The trend of homeowners re-listing unsold properties at lower prices is also noted, though not so much in Greater Phoenix.
Looking closer at the Arizona real estate market, particularly the Greater Phoenix area, we observe the trends.
The Cromford Report, a trusted Greater Phoenix market analysis source, suggests a shift towards a balanced market. This is reflected in the city’s increasing new construction permits and the general sales trend. The mortgage rates in Greater Phoenix, showing a downward trend, are also contributing to this shift.
The real estate market is indeed showing signs of change. While the current situation may seem challenging for sellers, the predicted increase in inventory and softening of mortgage rates hold promise for a more balanced market in the future. Only time will tell.
