Home Values Fall for the First Time in Seven Years - New Game Plan

listings scripts sellers May 26, 2019
 

Pending home sales surged in March up 3.8% (blowing past economists expectations of only .07%) but there is a catch the median US home value fell for the first time in seven years in April. Why are sales surging but prices are now falling?

The answer isn't that demand has changed. Buyers are still in the market and sales have ebbed and flowed with interest rates. What is changing are inventory levels. More inventory is piling up across the country. This means more to choose from for buyers and more pricing pressure for sellers. To attract a buyer sellers have to price their home's to compete against more and more inventory hitting the market daily.
