Is It Still a Sellers’ Market?


Ask Haley


Dear Haley:


I’ve been thinking about selling my home for some time now. Is it still a sellers’ market? If so, how long will it last? I’d love to know your thoughts.
 
Thanks,
Mike W., The Woodlands 

Dear Mike:


Yes, The Woodlands remains a strong sellers’ market! I included some graphs below just so you can see recent data for The Woodlands and surrounding areas. Real estate economists tell us that less than six months of inventory is considered a sellers’ market. At the close of June, there was less than 1 month of inventory in The Woodlands market alone (Exhibit A).
 
This is great news if you’re ready to sell! Buyer demand is still high and a sellers’ market lasts as long as demand outweighs inventory. However, buyers are very educated during this shifting financial market, so it’s really important to price your home aggressively within the market range for your area. 
 
As we move closer to fall, more sellers will be listing their homes. So if you’ve been going back and forth about whether or not to sell, now is absolutely a great time to capitalize on this seasonal uptick in activity. Give me a call at (281) 701-6174 if you have any other questions. I hope this helps.
 
Sincerely,
 
Haley G.
