Even though our current real estate market is still generally described at a ‘buyer’s market’, don’t be fooled. Buying a house in OKC can seem deceptively simple at first glance. After all, shouldn’t eager Oklahoma City home sellers be beating down YOUR door? You’re a willing and ready prospective home buyer and you assume that the market will allow you to make serious low ball offers and be greeted with open arms and an accepted contract by OKC home sellers.
Don’t get ahead of yourself! Oklahoma City did not see the run up in home prices that were occurring in many areas of the United States a few years back. Therefore, when home prices declined due to the financial and real estate ‘crisis’, the property values remained in a stronger position here in OKC than in many other areas of the country. As a home buyer, you want to realize that many homes in OKC sell for only a small percentage less than the listing sale price. This is your best indicator that OKC is not as strong a ‘buyer’s market’ as one would be lead to believe after digesting the massive negative national media coverage. This brings me to the subject of Quail Creek Oklahoma City.
