Everything You Need to Know About Buyer’s Market

Everything You Need to Know About Buyer’s Market

The past few years have been tough for buyers. With more buyers on the market than homes, properties have been selling quickly and for high prices often above asking.

In other words, we’ve been in a seller’s market.

But we won’t be in a seller’s market forever; eventually, the market will shift and we’ll be back in a buyer’s market, and if you want to be successful (as a buyer or seller), you need to understand what that entails.

A recent article from realtor.com outlined the ins and outs of buyer’s markets, including:


  • What is a buyer’s market? As the name suggests, a buyer’s market is a market that is more favorable to buyers than sellers.


  • What are some of the benefits of a buyer’s market? In a buyer’s market, buyers tend to hold more power, and can typically negotiate a better deal on their home purchase, whether by getting a better price, or getting more favorable terms like choosing their ideal closing date. It can also be less fast-paced, so buyers have more time to look for a home and don’t have to rush as much to make an offer. (Although, a well-priced home that appeals to one buyer will likely appeal to others, so there can still be bidding wars, and you shouldn’t wait too long to make an offer on a house you like even in a buyer’s market!) There is often more inventory to choose from as well, giving you more houses to choose from.


  • How can sellers best navigate a buyer’s market? If you’re trying to sell your home in a buyer’s market, you want to do everything you can to make your home appealing to buyers. Get professional photos taken and, if possible, make sure your home is move-in ready when you list. If it isn’t, be prepared to offer some concessions to sweeten the deal, like covering closing costs.
