New Home Sales Data: It’s a great time to buy AND sell!

Good day!

Here is some helpful data to use when farming or educating your clients on why now is a good time to buy or sell.

The Federal Housing Financial Agency (FHFA) just put out there housing price index that shows how the market is doing compared to the past.  See attached chart. It is true that values are not skyrocketing at a 20% or 30% pace, but it is certainly not depreciating like some have said.

  • Home prices are 8.8% higher then this time last year and up 1% higher then last month.
  • Appreciation is currently 12.6% year over year.
  • Inventory is down from 5.2 months to only 5 months.

 

What this means is that it is a great time to buy OR sell. Values are still going up! And this time at a healthy rate.

  • Great to buy, because values are still going up.
  • Great to sell, because the values are already up from the last few years and we are stabilized. No one is going to get rich from holding on to their house for another year.

I hope this is helpful when talking to your clients.
