Did You Know That Seller Concessions Help Both The Buyer and The Seller

Boy, is that ❄️snow coming down. I hope you are enjoying it from the inside of your home. I have had a few questions from clients on how Seller Concessions work, so I wanted to share some details on how it can benefit both the Seller and the Buyer, esp in times like this.

What Are Seller Concessions

Seller concessions are closing costs that the Seller has agreed to pay

Benefits for the Buyer

  • Help make buying the home more affordable
  • Reduce closing costs /cash needed

 Benefits for the Seller

  • Help make your home more accessible to buyers with varying budgets
  • Expedite the home sale process

Central Indiana’s Market Report – Are We Headed to a Balanced Market?

I tell my clients to stop listening to the nightly news. They are talking about home prices in places like Austin, Boise, and Phoenix. Our Local Market prices actually rose last month – Up 3K from November and 10% from a year ago.  The median sales price increased in December to $280,000. Real Estate is Local!

While Sales are Slowing :

It took an average 46 days to sell a house in December, 11 days longer than in November and almost double from a year ago.  Sales were down 29% from a year ago.  New listings are down as  well (23% from last December).

Active Inventory is Growing:

Up 3,816 from 2,088 a year ago.  Still only a 1.6 month supply.  That’s over 2x what there was a year ago, but still a long way from being a balanced market.

During the past two years, we saw homes selling over the asking price but are now selling at 97.7% of the list- believe me when I say – a “normal” number.
