There’s a Long Line of Buyers Waiting for Your House

January 9, 2020

If you’re following what’s happening in the housing market right now, you know that many people believe the winter months aren’t a good time to sell a home. As realtor.com Senior Economist George Ratiu recently noted,

 

“Sellers tend to be more reluctant to list during the colder time of year when the market typically makes a seasonal slowdown.”

 

However, a recent report by ShowingTime reveals how this year is different. Buyer activity is way up compared to the same time last year. The report explains,

 

“The nation’s 12.6% growth in home showings compared to 2018 was the most significant jump in buyer traffic during the current four-month streak of year-over-year increases. The West Region saw the greatest growth in activity, with a 23.1% jump – the region’s greatest in the history of the Showing Index.”

 

The increase has spread across all four regions of the country, as the graph below shows

 

Bottom Line

 

Waiting for the “spring buyers’ market” may be a mistake this year. It seems the purchasers are already out and looking to buy.
