What does this mean if you are a buyer?
For buyers, a inventory of 1.66 months (compared to 1.55 months in July) still shows Tempe in a strong Sellers market. Sellers continue to have a advantage since there are less homes available. Anything under 3 months of inventory is considered a seller’s market. So those homes that are priced right may get multiple offers. The buyer has to remain diligent about their offers. If you are serious about an offer, have your agent provide you comparable properties to determine the best price for the house. Asking for seller concessions or making a low ball offer is not a good strategy in this seller’s market. Remember, sellers also know the value of their home in this market. Their agents are keeping sellers updated on recent sales and homes similar to theirs as they come on the market.
