What’s ahead in March for Homebuyers?

The Indiana Association of Realtors (IAR) just released its February Housing Market Report

  • Statewide home sales jumped 17% from January to total 4,895
  • New Listings gained 2% from the previous month
  • Sales price grew to 7% though homebuyers were able to take advantage of a more BALANCED MARKET to close sales at 95% of original listing price

  • Pending sales have been stable from January to February. Rising mortgage rates continue to threaten buyers back to the sidelines
  • As I have been saying for months, Indiana continues to outperform national sales trends. The population growth and economic development activity have been encouraging in driving demand for housing here

This Market Looks Different

Gone (I say) gone are the days when a Buyer had to waive inspections and appraisals and pay all of their own closing costs.  The market we are standing in is totally different.  Having appraisals and inspections done are now standard practice, as it should be.  These practices put safeguards in place for all parties and keep everyone honest. And asking the Seller to do repairs or pay for some of the Buyer’s closing costs is definitely on the table.

With that being said, now MORE DEALS ARE BEING MADE. We just closed on one and have a few in the making. For lots of reasons, You need an Expert in your Corner! Give me a call/text (317) 625-0655 to see what we can do for you!
