National trends in real estate suggest a “buyers market”. A recent report from the National Association of Realtors, and reported by Bloomberg, says that in the second quarter of this year, existing single family home sales fell to a 10 year low, and the median price of a home declined 7.6 %. The market in Ruidoso and Alto is obviously off the highs of a few years ago, however, it has not been hit nearly as hard as some markets such as California and other areas where foreclosures and short sales are widespread. In comparison to other Rocky Mountain resort areas such as Durango and Telluride, we still have some very attractive home prices.
In summary, the larger supply of available homes for sale, longer days on market, higher cost of new construction, along with national real estate trends would suggest that sellers should be more motivated. Feel free to contact me to discuss any specific properties or market trends.
