In today’s market, inventory is still low while demand remains high. This leads to fierce competition among buyers, who should not expect to negotiate a lower sale price like they could in a normal housing market. Currently, sellers receive an average of 3.8 offers and their homes sell in about 17 days. The deputy chief economist at CoreLogic, Selma Hepp, says, “The imbalance between robust demand and dismal availability of for-sale homes has led to a continual bidding over asking prices, which reached record levels in recent months. Now, almost six in ten homes listed are selling over the asking price.”
For buyers, this means that offering below or even at a home’s list price may not be enough to obtain your dream house.…

In today’s housing market, we are seeing high demand and low inventory — and when this happens, prices naturally rise. Thanks to these home sale prices appreciating at near-historic rates, certain challenges have arisen with regards to appraisals. For the last few months, it has become more and more common for an appraisal to come in below the contract price on a home. Chief appraiser for CoreLogic Shawn Telford explains, “Recently, we observed buyers paying prices above listing price and higher than the market data available to appraisers…this difference is known as the appraisal gap.” Put simply, because of skyrocketing buyer demand, prospective homeowners are often willing to pay over asking to secure their dream homes. However,…

Though things are looking up for the housing inventory, which is projected to increase after hitting record lows in the first half of 2021, it is likely going to remain a seller's market for a while. In light of this knowledge, what can you do to give yourself the best chance at securing the home of your dreams this summer? Read on to see our top tips for becoming a competitive buyer.
