Buyer’s Market vs Seller’s Market


When you buy your new home in Houston, Texas you want to make sure you’re getting the best possible value for your money. You may have heard the terms "buyer's market" and "seller's market" and are now wondering what effect these conditions have on you as you move ahead with your transaction.


Buyers Market

A buyer's market is what you get when there's more supply(houses) than demand(buyers). There are more people looking to sell houses than there are people looking to buy houses. In a buyer's market, sellers may have to accept a lower price than they want to sell their home and may have to resort to staging and incentives. This is the ideal situation for buyers, because they can get a great deal.


Sellers Market

A seller's market is just the opposite. The demand(buyer’s) is larger than the supply(houses). People have more money to spend on real estate, so sellers will often see several buyers competing to buy their property, which drives up the price. This means that buyers will have to spend more to get what they want. This is the ideal situation for sellers, because they get a great price on their homes.

It's important to remember that even within the same county or the same state, there can be several different markets. So you might run into a situation where you're both selling your home at an advantage and buying your home at an advantage, or any combination of the two, depending on where you decide to move to. This is often a factor in people's relocation decisions.


Buyer's markets and seller's markets don't last forever. It's hard to predict what the market will do with any accuracy, though, and things change slowly. You might end up waiting months or years for things to change. And when circumstances do change, they may not change in your favor. This is an important factor to consider when you're deciding when to buy or sell real estate.  Ask your iBuy Agent if it’s currently a Buyer’s Market or Seller’s Market. This discussion will determine the BEST price and strategy to win the bid for your perfect house…
