In this video I talk about the Bentonville real estate market
and how it may impact you and your home value. 

When people discover I’m a licensed real estate agent in Arkansas, one of the most common questions they ask is, “How’s the real estate market?” The answer to this question depends on whether you are actively looking to buy or sell or simply curious about the current state of the market without immediate plans for a move. Allow me to explain. 

Three Types of Real Estate Markets

In the world of real estate, there are three primary types of markets, each with its unique set of advantages and challenges for buyers and sellers:

 Seller’s Market:

In this market, there are not enough homes available to meet the high demand from buyers.

Buyer’s Market:

This market is characterized by an excess of available homes and insufficient demand from buyers.

Balanced Market:

In a balanced market, the number of homes available for sale matches the level of buyer demand, leading to a more stabilized market condition.

Market Shifts and Current Trends

In recent times, we experienced a strong seller’s market between 2021 and 2022, where there was intense competition among buyers, leading to a shortage of available homes to meet the demand. As the real estate landscape is now undergoing a shift from a seller’s market to what is expected to become a buyer’s market at some point, homes are staying on the market slightly longer. 

Although we have not yet reached the six-month mark for the average time on the market, there has been a noticeable change.

How the Market Impacts You

Regardless of the market conditions, education remains crucial. When it comes to assisting individuals with their buying or selling endeavors, my ability to access current local data and insights into potential market changes is essential in developing a robust and successful game plan. It’s something that computer generated models simply can’t do for people. 

What computers can’t do is evaluate the inside of a home like we as agents can and do each and every day. This variable is a key element of pricing a home accurately! 

The Local Nature of Real Estate

It’s essential to remember that real estate is highly localized. Market dynamics can vary significantly between regions and even from city to city within the same state. Staying informed about the specific market conditions in Bentonville or your particular market area is vital for making informed decisions when buying or selling a property.
