SLO County Market Update - February

Welcome to February. Let's rewind and take a look at what went down in the world of real estate in SLO County throughout January. Buckle up, because January 2024 did not wait around. It came in with a bang. While most folks use January to ease back into everyday life, kids are going back to school after the holidays. It's the start of a new year. January ‘24 was having none of that. Listings hit the market sooner than usual and buyers were back in the game faster than your average January, pointing toward a promising year ahead in real estate.

Here's the scoop for savvy buyers. Interest rates are currently on a downward trend, but the Federal Reserve hasn't made significant rate cuts just yet. Word on the street is that cuts are expected to start rolling in around March. And when they do? Brace yourselves because buyer demand is going to skyrocket. So if you're thinking about making a move this year, beating the competition might be your ticket to success and saving some money for a tailored plan and a deeper dive into your real estate goals. Don't hesitate to reach out. We can set up a quick 15 minute call for some exciting options for you.

And while we're not in the balanced market yet, keep your eyes peeled because home sales are expected to kick into high gear this spring as more inventory hits the market.
