Here is your June 2023 real estate market update at the Jersey Shore!
July 11, 2023
By Susan Heckman
Overall, the trend of low inventory and fewer home sales continues to push home prices upward, in all price points. In addition, financing rates are holding steady at around 7% (for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages) and aren't expected to change significantly. Like the heat wave temperatures we are currently experiencing, home prices continue to climb and real estate perseveres as the best investment you can make.
Since mortgage rates are not expected to come down significantly anytime soon, we are seeing more and more buyers adjust their expectations as well as the price range they can afford. And they are motivated to buy! Tight inventory means that a well-priced home will still see multiple offers with great terms.
