What Is Happening in the North Shore Housing Market?

Today’s market is crazy! If you’re a buyer or a seller, here’s what you need to know.

What is going on in today’s market? It’s crazy. Inventory is super low, and I’d like to offer you some perspective.

I recently gave an interview on a Boston.com real estate program where I talked about the North Shore and Essex County in general. Ten years ago in 2008, we had 3,000 homes for sale. Today, we have 700 homes for sale—that’s 2,300 fewer homes available.

If you’re a seller, there’s never been a better time to sell. There are so many buyers but not enough homes to sell to them all, so each seller’s property is a hot item that should sell fairly quickly and for a good price.

Buyers might think it’s a good idea to wait until prices go down, but I don’t see that happening. We won’t have a collapse like the last dip in the market, since that was underpinned by weak mortgages and people who got no-documentation loans. These days, everyone has been getting loans that are properly documented with every i dotted and every t crossed.

You might as well enter the market now and ride it up with the prices.

In the Greater Boston area, people are moving in to take advantage of the jobs and colleges we have, but there isn’t enough housing to suit them all. We also can’t build anymore homes, so we’re stuck with what we have. 

Rents are going up and home sales are going up, so if you’re a buyer, the prices will be even higher. You might as well enter the market now and ride up with the prices. That way, when you sell in five or 10 years, you’ll have gained all that equity. If you lower your expectations a little bit and get in the ownership game now, your next purchase can more in line with what you desire.

If you have any more questions about our current market or you're thinking of buying or selling a home, don't hesitate to call me or shoot me an email. I'd be happy to help.

How Rising Rates Are Impacting Affordability

How are rising interest rates impacting people in our current market?

As you may already know, we’ve recently seen a rise in interest rates. Last year, interest rates were around 3.4%. Now, they are up to 4.4%. 

This rise has a direct impact on buyers and sellers in today’s market. The amount sellers can ask for a property and the amount of buying power people have during their home search are two primary examples of this. 

Let’s imagine a home with a purchase price of $400,000. A 1% rise in interest rates would cause buyers to lose around 10% of their buying power. 

Rising interest rates have a direct impact on buyers and sellers in today’s market.

Decreased buying power affects sellers, too. If sellers hope to entice today’s buyers, they must set lower prices than in the past. 

I don’t have a crystal ball, but I can see that it’s becoming more expensive for buyers in today’s market. 

In other words, now is the time to lock in rates while they’re still relatively low. If you’re a seller, now is also a great time to list, since waiting could make it harder to command top dollar.
