Homebuyers Can Take Advantage of End-of-Year Home Sale Trends

The year’s first half is typically the frenzied home buying and selling season in real estate. However, come July and August, home sales begin to slow.

This means there is less competition with other home buyers. Home sellers may be more motivated, flexible, and willing to make seller concessions or reduce the price of their home in the Denver metro area.

What Are Real Estate Seller Concessions?

If you are buying a home, a seller concession is an amount a home seller offers to a home buyer to reduce closing costs. Examples include:

  • Covering the cost of new appliances
  • Repairs to the home like a new roof or exterior paint
  • A home inspection or appraisal fee
  • Property taxes

Keep in mind that a seller concession is not cash that a home buyer receives. A concession decreases closing costs but will raise the amount of your home loan by a corresponding amount.

So while a seller concession can make it easier to buy a home because you’ll need less cash, it can cost more money in the long run by adding to the mortgage amount.

Denver Real Estate Trends: New Home Listings

New listings in August 2022 were 6939, which is +93.7% versus one year ago. However, as seasonality predicts, new listings in August versus July decreased by 5.7%.

August is typically a back-to-school time when families hope to settle in until school is out the following spring. But this doesn’t mean that buying and selling in the real estate market come to a screeching halt.

Home buyers and sellers wishing to avoid buying and selling frenzy of the first half of the year remain in the market. This means that whether you are buying or selling, Q3 and Q4 offer a more relaxed pace.
