What Does This Mean For Buyers In St George Utah?
Buyers can expect to see a market of rising prices and diminished inventory. Buyers should be aware that time is not on their side, and with the possibility of interest rates rising, buyers need to lock in financing sooner rather than later.
If financing is in place, then a buyer should be prepared to act assertively once a property is found, and submitting a bid that stands out among all other bids. As we head in to the spring season, buyers may face more competition and possibly overbidding for properties.
Having a great agent on your side to navigate the complex and dynamic St. George real estate market is a must. Give the Jacki Ruden Realty Team a call to find out how they help buyers find the perfect home!
