The RGroup Report: February 2023

Busting Home Buying Myths
A Note From Angie 

Market movement has started to heat up amid the cold weather.

With desirable advantages for buyers such as home prices leveling off and inventory slowly creeping up, now is definitely a great time to jumpstart the buying process. Not to mention, mortgage interest rates continuously fell for the past three weeks. In fact, the rates have dropped 1% in the past 60 days and are now down to 6.2%. You might even find some lender specials in the 5%.
The RGroup says—grab the opportunity!

There are traditionally fewer buyers right now so sellers are more open to negotiating inspections and other contingencies. You also won’t have to face a multiple offer situation. Just think, you might get an excellent deal with that house you’ve been looking at! Additionally, wages are rising,
boosting your capability for homeownership.

Buyers aren't the only ones being pulled back in the game. Lower mortgage rates are also encouraging sellers to re-enter the market, to go with the flow and keep up with demand. So many irresistible homes are moving fast, and sellers are still able to enjoy increased average sales prices.

The bottom line: now's the time to make a move—get your house ready for selling
or get pre-qualified.

Not only are we putting the spotlight on market opportunities, this month is about celebrating love, as well. The RGroup is giving you the chance to win a romantic Valentine's Day dinner for two through an exciting giveaway!

Kosciusko County Market Stats
Compared to the previous year, sellers gained significant advantages such as increased average sales price in December 2022. However, the number of months that it took for the inventory of homes on the market to sell out prolonged. New listings and
closed sales also dropped.
