What is Buyer Fatigue?

real estate buyer fatigue

 

What is Buyer’s Fatigue?

Due to the recent sellers’ market surge we experienced with its high buyer demand, low home inventory and multiple competitive offer situations, many buyers (and their agents) are experiencing “buyer fatigue”. This condition has buyers exhausted by their consistent losses and they choose to step out of the market. There is no official way to gauge the level of fatigue out there, but there are signs that help us predict when a correction in the housing market will occur. We list more homes than any other team in SE King County, so we see trends coming before most other agents because of the volume of homes we sell. For months we have sensed a shift in the market and our agents have been preparing for it. We are seeing less offers on homes, less traffic online, less showings, and even getting skunked at open houses with no one showing up. Buyers just get tired of waving everything, going way over asking, and then losing. BUT, there is good news in all of this…

Having a seasoned, full time and caring buyer’s agent can make all the difference! Believe it or not, agents get buyer fatigue as well. Our listing managers call every agent who shows our listings for feedback. More and more non Rosie Rourke Team buyers agents tell us, “I told my clients the home is going to go so far over asking that it’s not worth my time to write an offer.” Imagine that, a home you LOVED just sitting there with no offers ready to be yours! You need an agent like Lisa, Lexie and Lilia (the Triple L Threat) that have the knowledge, the skills and the drive to make it through the tough times with their buyers. Even during the ultra-competitive markets of the past few years, combined they have helped hundreds of buyers achieve their dreams! They also know when to make the most of an opportunity, and RIGHT NOW there is a HUGE opportunity!!!

NOW IS THE TIME while the sellers’ market cools off and takes a breath! Learn more about our buyers’ agents and what they can do to help you here: www.rosierourke.com/buyers

PS. Sellers, NO, you didn’t miss the market! The price increases of the past 2 years has you in a great position! People always need to buy and we have the targeted marketing, the experience and the skills to sell your home anytime, anywhere!

SELLER ALERT!!! 

First PENDING home of the year… and it flew off the market during the first weekend! 50 + showings and multiple offers WELL OVER ASKING! Rosie predicted this back in December with her Winter Market Update [watch below]

 

She predicted that interest rates would rise in 2022 and buyers will try to get into a home before their buying power is lessened with higher rates. This combined with record low inventory (homes available to buy in the market) would create the perfect winter storm for home sellers. Winter is the NEW Spring market this year! Rosie doesn’t have a crystal ball, but she does have over 25 years of experience in our local real estate market + a team that does a high volume of business, they can see trends coming before other agents because of this.

Well, the secret is out and we are telling all of our sellers sitting on the fence to get their homes on the market ASAP. Luckily we have our home concierge program that is helping sellers get their home SHOW READY and on the market in a matter of weeks, not months! This is what leading real estate experts are saying about our local market right now!

sell my house in 2022

According to Tim Ellis of the real estate blog Seattle Bubble, “January is shaping up to be the most competitive month in housing history.”

“The stage is now set for the most competitive January housing market in recorded history,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather as well. “Buyers are pouring into the market to claim a home before mortgage rates rise further as new listings slow to a trickle [during the winter months].”

Bottom-line for Sellers: With less homes on the market, your home will stand out with virtually ZERO competition when you list. This will not be the case the closer we get to spring. Also, with interest rates as low as they are still, there are more buyers with more buying power who are desperate to get something under contract before the rates go up! If you are able to list before spring, I would do it now! Take advantage of our Home Concierge Program, it’s FREE and our team literally does everything for you to get your home ready faster! Request a free home valuation and let’s have a conversation! Call or text 206.719.5870 or fill out the form below!

Bottom-line for Buyers: BUY NOW before rates go up! You will be in competition with other buyers, you need a buyer’s agent who knows how to write a winning bid! Spoiler alert, it’s not always about who throws down the most money! Every seller has a specific goal in mind, our agents learn about the sellers and craft offers that are attractive to them.
