In respect to this, is it a sellers or buyers market 2019?
It looks like 2019 could be a buyer's market in real estate, but that's not necessarily a good sign for the economy. Home prices, while still higher than a year ago, are pulling back in most major markets, according to a report released Wednesday. These higher rates and home prices have reduced buyer affordability.”
Beside above, why is the buyer's market preferred over seller's market? In a Sellers market there is more demand than supply meaning there are more Buyers than there are houses for sale. In a Buyers market there is more supply than demand meaning there are more homes for sale than there are actual Buyers.
Subsequently, question is, is the housing market a buyers or sellers market?
In a buyers market, there are more homes for sale than there are buyers in the marketplace, so the housing market is favorable to buyers (unfortunately for sellers!).
Is the housing market going to crash in 2020?
The U.S. housing market has recovered from the 2008–09 financial crisis, with home prices exceeding the pre-collapse valuation in many areas. Despite a record bull market over the past decade, the housing market in the U.S. could enter a recession in 2020, according to Zillow.
