Where is the Ann Arbor Real Estate Market Headed?
Optimism has returned to the Ann Arbor real estate market. While values are still anywhere from 10-65% below the historic highs, they are no longer in a free fall. Ann Arbor homes are an incredible value right now. Low interest rates + the lowest prices in years = opportunity. I don’t believe that this opportunity will last much longer due to a lack of inventory. Most of the leading indicators show a lack of supply and strong demand. Job growth, lack of new construction, and low interest rates have nudged buyers back into the market. Low inventory, decreasing foreclosures, and slowly rising prices are beginning to nudge sellers back into the market. Both of these trends bode well for a healthy real estate market in Ann Arbor.
