What Does A Market “Shift” Mean For Young Professionals In Edmond?

What Does A Market “Shift” Mean For Young Professionals In Edmond?

We are starting to hear the word “Shift” in our market. Interest rates have gone up, causing buyers to reconsider purchasing. Sellers are thinking twice about listing their home as their need to buy would cause them to trade their low-rate mortgage to a higher one. How does this affect Edmond?

If we look at interest rates over the years,  we are still seeing historically low rates. As a buyer, it is still a perfect time to buy. For the serious buyer, the fierce competition we have seen in the past couple years will decline; the market will become less competitive and start to stabilize. We have started to see offers become accepted locally with less rigid terms such as the “as-is conditions” or little-to-no appraisal gaps.

As a seller, home equity has grown exponentially. In May of 2022, Edmond homes continued to receive over-list prices at an average of 103.1%. The average for days on the market for the same month was 13 days. Serious buyers will remain so while we will hear the word “shift”, our local market remains strong to sell.  If buying or selling is still on your radar**,  it’s the perfect time to start the conversation with a lender and your local real estate expert!

    When you give, HOPE gives back.

    We have a lot to be thankful for today. 💙

    From now until the end of the year, donations made through our Samaritan Fund Drive help us provide winter necessities like coats, gloves, and assistance on rising utility payments to our neighbors in need. This is HOPE Center of Edmond's largest annual fundraiser, and gives us the ability to assist over 500 families we see on a monthly basis.

    For #GivingTuesday, Edmond Women's Club is dedicating their campaign efforts to our Christmas Sponsorship Program. These donations will help purchase Christmas gifts for the families in our program. Contributions to our fundraiser from Nov. 29-Dec. 6 go towards stocking our food pantry and assisting with housing & utility bills.

    Downtown Edmond is still collecting nonperishable food donations for HOPE through Nov. 30 at #DowntownEdmond drop off locations.

    Edmond Young Professionals is holding a gift card drive for HOPE. These gift cards are distributed to teens of families in our Christmas Sponsorship Program. You can donate gift cards and sign up to sponsor families in our program through Nov. 30.

    More information for these events and donation opportunities can be found at www.hopecenterofedmond.com/online-giving.

    Your gifts of HOPE help us continue to give back to our community. 💙
