Market Reports - August

Dated: September 17 2021

Views: 39

The Market Reports are out for the month of August and the biggest takeaway is that inventory is continuing to increase. Up from a July low of about 45 days, we are now looking at over two months in our two largest markets in the Highland Lakes region. Despite this continue rise in inventory, it is still a solid seller's market. To understand inventory, here are the general stability markers:

- 0-3 months - seller's market

- 4-6 months - stable market

- 6+ months - buyer's market

We do expect this trend to continue as we head into the fall. We also expect interest rates to stay low, though maybe not as low as they have been. It is a good time for buyers with an outlook for continued improvement over the winter. For sellers, the number of active listings remain below those of a year ago. With rates and inventory low, it is still a great market for sellers as well.
