If there are too many homes for sale, the rate of selling is relatively slower than expected, and homes might not sell at all. This trend results to home prices going down because there is more real estate inventory than potential buyers, which makes this period not a good time to market your home.
Hence, this is not a good time to try to sell your home because the market conditions are not in its competent state.
However, the real estate inventory might be at all time high, but lowering of home prices ensue delay of home sales. These market conditions might get worse next year and right now Northern Utah is experiencing this upshot. They observed a big decline in home sales. Compared with 2009, last quarter home sales in Cache County were down by 38%. So, the price you can get for your home now will be more than what you will be able to get next year with the current real estate trend.
But sooner or later, the prices will start rising again and the levels of inventory will level out when real estate inventory goes down. Hopefully, this will happen after 10 months if and only if something drastic sways the real estate market.
You’re probably better off selling now than you will be next year. But if you really need to sell, now is not a good time to sell if you want to get as much money as possible out of your home.
