Real Estate Inventory Blues? Join the Club - Buyers Battle it Out for Dream Homes
Are you one of the many home buyers currently on the prowl for your dream home? Well, you're not alone in your quest, my friend. The only problem is that you might have to fight tooth and nail to get it. Why? Because there's a low inventory of homes available for sale in the market, and the competition is fierce!
According to Black Knight, a whopping 65% of all U.S. homes with a first-lien mortgage have low interest rates (3%-3.99%), making it less attractive for homeowners to sell and move. And let's not forget about the 37% of homes in the US with no mortgage at all. No wonder CNBC reported that 57% of all deals in the first quarter of Manhattan's real estate market were all cash! It's like buyers are showing up with wads of cash, ready to pounce on the limited number of homes available.
But don't lose hope just yet! The Mortgage Bankers Association predicts that mortgage rates will gradually decline over the next few years -under 5% by the end of 2024. So, keep your eyes peeled for that perfect home, and when you find it, be prepared to fight for it. Who knows, with a bit of luck and a lot of determination, you might just come out on top. So, don your armor, unsheathe your sword, and join the battle of the low-inventory housing market!
