Buyers' vs Sellers' Market: What's The Difference?

"Buyers' market" and "sellers' market"... If you've ever come within ten miles of the real estate market, you've probably heard some of these (and other) real estate buzzwords used frequently. What do they really mean, though, and what impact can they have on you as your try to buy or sell your home in Colorado Springs? The MacGuire Team is here to help you understand the differences and how to use them to your advantage.

Buyers' Market

In a buyers' market, the number of homes for sale in Colorado Springs greatly outweigh the number of prospective home buyers. With so many homes available, buyers are able to be more selective about the homes they pursue. Since the homes available are in greater competition with one another to be sold, the sellers may be forced to drop the price or add other incentives if they want to sell their homes quickly. This situation is called a "buyers' market" because buyers get to enjoy the upper hand in the situation.

If you are thinking about buying a house in Colorado Springs, you may want to time it to try to hit a buyer's market. No matter when you're planning to buy, though, The MacGuire Team will be here to help you!

Sellers' Market

A sellers' market is exactly the opposite - the number of interested buyers greatly outweigh the number of available homes for sale. With the supply greatly exceeding the demand, buyers will have to compete for the homes they want. When this happens, buyers may be forced to pay higher prices and make decisions more quickly or they risk losing the home to someone else. This situation is known as a "sellers' market" because sellers can wait for the best offers.

If you are debating whether or not to sell your house, you may want to allow the current market conditions to influence your decision. If you are planning to sell your home in the near future, The MacGuire Team will be here to help you.
