Housing Market Starting to Cool Off!

I think we all knew it was coming…a cooling off period in the housing market. It had to at some point, right? Prices were increasing at rates never seen before, interest rates were so low, buyers were plentiful and sellers pushed asking prices to an unsustainable point.

Well, as expected, prices are starting to fall as the pool of buyers has shrunk. Gone, for now, are the days a seller can just put up a for sale sign and expect multiple offers to come flowing in. Not only are we seeing offers come in less than asking prices for the first time in a long time, but we are now seeing more prices reductions; something rarely seen in several years.

Below is a recent article published by Realtor.com on the housing market trends and it’s a good read for those of you who like to stay current and up to speed with the real estate market:
