*Data pulled from Southwest Florida MLS on 6/6/2022

Inventory still remains to be a problem, but we are starting to see more and more inventory hit our market. Inventory across the Southwest Florida MLS is up 3.4% from last year.

Homes are still selling fairly fast with the median days to contract still at 6 days.

We have noticed 2 things in the market recently. Home prices are still going up. Prices are not expected to tumble anytime in the near future.

And secondly, the large advantage sellers have had over the last year is is beginning to deminish.

What Does This Mean For Buyers and Sellers?

Now don't get me wrong, we are still in a seller's market, but the days of listing your house high and getting multiple offers well above list price within a few days are most likely behind us.

We will continue to see more price decreases from listings as many sellers will continue to try and push the market higher when they initially list. This does not mean that prices are going down, but that year over year price appreciation will begin to slow down and normalize.

So to answer the question at the beginning of this video, it is safe to say we are still in a seller's market, but there are signs that the market may be starting to shift towards a more balanced market.

If selling, it will be important to list with an experienced agent to help you navigate the changing market conditions and still get top dollar for your home.

If buying, I would still recommend buying sooner than later to take advantage of today's interest rates, as they are still expected to rise and prices are not expected to fall.
