What Does This Mean For Buyers In St George Utah?

Buyers searching for a single-family home to buy in St. George, Utah, will see lower prices for homes going into 2024. There has been a slowdown in activity which has allowed prices to come down. Buyers searching for properties may see less competition for homes available. The list-to-sale price ratio favors buyers, and on average buyers are paying less than 5% of the full asking price. Even as inventory levels have fallen for 2023, it may pick up in the first quarter of 2024, as sellers who waited until after the holidays to get their home listed.

Buyers should also keep in mind that time is not on their side, home prices could increase, or interest rates could climb higher. It is important for buyers to have a prepared plan in place and be ready to act when a property is found. Indecisiveness can cost the opportunity for a home or cost you more money at closing.

What Does This Mean For Sellers In St George Utah?

For sellers of homes, or those thinking of selling their home in St. George, while the market has slowed, there is still buying activity taking place. While sales for the year dropped slightly, pending listings increased year to year. The year ended with increased buying activity, as the number of days on the market before being sold decreased, the list price-to-close price ratio increased during the month of December.

As we head into 2024 sellers can expect the same trends of 2023 to continue, with activity picking up during the summer months. However, sellers should not be hesitant to get their homes listed and on the market. Buyers operate on a shorter time frame, and waiting a week to list your home could cost you a sale or the loss of total home value. Sellers who have been patient to take action, or waiting for the perfect time, should take the first step and find what their home is worth, and offer it to the market to get it sold quickly and for as much money as possible.
