How far can you negotiate with sellers?

As we have seen, interest rates have increased this summer. Just a few months ago earlier this 2022 year, it was a seller's market. But now the tables have turned. We are seeing price reductions, sellers offering credits, longer days on market, and a slight dip in where home prices have been.  We were at a peak of our home prices that was unprecedented and unsustainable so a "dip" is what we call just a correction in the market.  Even some sellers are willing to go above and beyond to help buy down a buyer's interest rate in order to get their home sold.  With seasons changing and winter approaching in the near future, my recommendation if you are a BUYER to continue your pulse in searching for homes that have…

I was shocked to see some of these numbers in a recent market update from March 2021 and I wanted to share this with you.  Check out the NEW Median Sales Price this past month, March 2021. We are now at $709,000!!!! This is unreal. In March of 2020, the Median Sales Price for a single family home was just under $500,000. The median sales price has ALMOST DOUBLED! You can see that we are at an incredible LOW supply of inventory at less than 1 month. With a drop of 76% of inventory from last year same time, we are in desperate need of homes to sell.    Even more staggering of numbers are the homes OUTSIDE of City Limits with an increase of 63% in median sales price ($893,000) over the last year for single family homes. Even higher…

Needless to say, 2020 was wild, chaotic and unpredictable in so many facets of our lives. The Bozeman Real Estate Market took OFF. 

Let's not panic. If you own home in Bozeman, you are sitting on some serious appreciation. If you do not own a home yet, don't worry; it is not too late and you will be able to afford a home. You will just need to be patient with this market, wait for the inventory to come up, and work with a Realtor closely to identify and guide you in this hot market.

Attention Sellers: If you are looking to SELL, well it is an amazing time to consider. First step, ask for a sales valuation (this is free, no commitment). Pretty much every month that goes by, we are seeing major appreciation occur on homes which means you can play…
