After decades of stagnant real estate sales, Western New York has become a hotbed for home purchases. There are very interested buyers that far outweigh available inventory. Plus, bidding wars are occurring for new addresses, pushing prices thousands above asking prices.
According to a recent report by Buffalo’s WKBW-TV, Erie County’s housing inventory is at a record low, with less than 700 homes for sale throughout the region as of June 15, 2021. As a region, median home prices have surged by more than $50K in just five years. In the city of Buffalo alone, the median selling price for a single-family home is now $200K. This is up more than 17% from the same time last year.
And these numbers are not just impressive for WNY. According to a March 2021 report by Inspection Support Network, Buffalo had the fewest homes for sale of any metropolitan area in the country – large, mid-sized, and small – with just 39 for every 10,000 occupied homes.
When’s the right time to move?
The demand is real, so for those thinking about selling their home—and all the exhausting work that goes with it—now’s the time to consider making a move. But for these homeowners, deciding to sell might be the easy part. It’s finding their next home that poses the main problem. And so, this reality may even dissuade them from engaging in WNY’s white-hot housing market.
