Jason Sirois November 9, 2023

As more sellers compete for fewer buyers in the market due to the cost of money, we can expect to see more deals with seller concessions negotiated into offers. Sellers, if you haven't yet, it's time to clear your short-term memory of the pandemic selling season. Understand that this was a Goldilocks zone fueled with extreme demand for more space, remote work, and low interest rates.

That all said, your home is still worth 4.16 percent on average, more than it was this time last year. Buyers. With each incremental decrease in mortgage rates, you can expect more buyers to enter the game. I predict that when we get below 7 percent, the buyer pool will swell and these opportunities for seller concessions will erode rapidly.
