The Impact of Higher Mortgage Rates

The national rise in mortgage rates has undoubtedly made a splash. For potential buyers, these rates have made home ownership a more expensive endeavor. For sellers, the challenge lies in finding buyers who can meet their price expectations in this new financial climate.

But don’t let this deter you. The Austin real estate market is resilient and dynamic, and there are still plenty of opportunities to be found!

Here in Austin, we’re noticing a trend of price reductions. This trend is a result of decreased demand, as many home sellers initially aim high with their listing prices. However, when homes are priced correctly, they are selling swiftly, indicating that buyers are still active and ready to invest when they find the right opportunity. This is a testament to the enduring appeal of Austin’s real estate market and the expertise we bring to the table at Creath Partners.

This trend underscores the importance of pricing strategy in today’s market. Sellers who understand the current market dynamics and price their homes accordingly are finding success.
