Market Temperature- Very Hot for Sellers, Good for Buyers too

Otter Tail County is now considered a very hot seller’s market (upgraded from hot last month). The market temperature is based on three metrics: the list-to-sale price ratio, the prevalence of price cuts on home listings, and time-on-market. It provides information on the current balance of bargaining power between buyers and sellers in this region relative to that balance historically, enabling buyers and sellers to see trends in their local housing market temperature.

Take away: It’s a great time to sell. However, with low mortgage interest rates, it’s also a good time to buy.
