    Jan 2024 NWMLS sales activity, Market Trends and Buyer Broker Services Agreement

    Yes, we continue to struggle with very low inventory, yet buyers are looking and buying homes with a few homes being sold after receiving multiple offers. If we see any interest rate reductions I think the market will get busier with more buyer activity and the inventory will contuinue to shrink as all indications are that we will not see any increase in any inventory for the next few years

    Dec 2023 NWMLS Real estate activity stats and the NEW Buyer broker agreements

    Dec 2023 NWMLS Real estate activity stats and the NEW Buyer broker agreements

    Happy New Year! December was another month of continued low inventory, the only real highlight was that interest rates had fallen to the low 6% which helped with increased sales. I believe that rates will fall to the mid 5's by the spring of 2024. As a reminder, Jan 1 2024 ALL buyers MUST sign the new state approved Buyer Broker Service Agreement.  Thinking of selling? Get your home prepared to sell. If you are looking to buy a home then get pre-approved for financing. I expect a busy 1st quarter for 2024 with good homes selling quickly
