March sales data continues to suggest strong buying interest and a solid housing market, as the effects of higher mortgage interest rates won’t be realized for a few more months. With the Federal Reserve expected to announce two back-to-back half-point interest rate hikes in May and June to combat inflation, interest rates will be elevated for the foreseeable future, adversely affecting housing demand and lowering housing affordability in the coming months, but the effects may not be visible until the second half of the year as many of the homes that are, or will be, closing were negotiated before the sharp increase in rates. Despite the slight dip in sales, our housing market remains fiercely competitive. Homes are selling swiftly, outpacing last year's pace, indicating sustained demand. The supply side of the market shows signs of improvement, with an increasing number of properties being listed as sellers adapt to the “new normal.” However, the pace of new listings may not fully match the demand, leading to a persistent imbalance between supply and demand.

The complexities of the current conditions mean that, now more than ever, it’s smart to lean on the guidance of an experienced local real estate agent. If you want to enter the market in 2024, whether as a buyer or a seller, let a pro lead the way for you.
