What Does This Mean For Buyers In St George Utah?

Buyers looking for a home in St. George, Utah, should expect lots of competition for homes available. Overbidding is continuing, meaning buyers should be prepared to submit the above asking price for homes. Buyers should be aware that interest rates are now at pre-2008 levels, this may put some buyers on the sideline, driving down the competition.

Buyers can find homes if they are patient, yet, must act quickly when a property is found. Inventory may become tighter if interest rates climb, and sellers who wanted to sell can’t find a home to buy. The one silver lining is buyers may see prices start to come down during the summer, however, this may not happen until early 2023.

What Does This Mean For Sellers In St George Utah?

If you are thinking of selling your home, now is the time to get it listed and on the market. There is still demand housing in St. George, and while interest rates are climbing, and sales have slowed compared to just one year ago, they are still well above pre-pandemic levels. Sellers will want to take advantage of the current timing and get ahead of any potential slowdowns.

It is important for sellers to price their homes correctly in dynamic markets like St. George. As prices climb, sellers do not want to give away too much value when selling their homes. As we head into summer, sellers should be aware that there may be a cooling of the market and prices dropping. Sellers who are thinking of selling should be prepared for this and plan accordingly.
