The housing market has been going through shifts lately. That’s why it’s so important to work with an industry professional who can be your guide throughout the process.
A real estate expert uses their knowledge of what’s really happening with home prices, housing supply, expert projections, and more to give you the best advice. Someone who can provide clarity like that is critical right now. Jay Thompson, Real Estate Industry Consultant, explains:
“Housing market headlines are everywhere. Many are quite sensational, ending with exclamation points or predicting impending doom for the industry. Clickbait, the sensationalizing of headlines and content, has been an issue since the dawn of the internet, and housing news is not immune to it.”
Unfortunately, when information in the media isn’t clear, it can generate a lot of fear and uncertainty in the market. As Jason Lewris, Co-Founder and Chief Data Officer at Parcl, says:
“In the absence of trustworthy, up-to-date information, real estate decisions are increasingly being driven by fear, uncertainty, and doubt.”
But it doesn’t have to be that way! Buying a home is a big decision, and it should be one you feel confident making. You can lean on a Town & Country Realty broker to help you separate fact from fiction and get the answers you need.
Our brokers can help you understand what’s happening at the national and local levels, and they can debunk headlines using data you can trust. They are real estate experts and have in-depth knowledge of the industry. They can provide context, so you know how current trends compare to the normal ebbs and flows in the industry, historical data, and more.
Then, to make sure you have the full picture, a Town & Country Realty broker can tell you if the Mid-Willamette Valley is following the national trend or if they’re seeing something different in this market. Together, you can use all that information to make the best possible decision.
Bottom Line: Making a move is a potentially life-changing milestone. It should be something you feel ready for and excited about. And that’s where a trusted and knowledgeable expert comes in.
