Birmingham Housing Market Update

The Birmingham area housing market is healthy and vibrant. If you’re looking for a home for sale in the Birmingham area, the best advise we can share is to:

  • Get familiar with areas by driving neighborhoods
  • Decide how you want to finance your purchase: Cash or mortgage?
  • Decide what price range best fits your needs; if you are getting a loan, what is your comfort level for monthly payments?

    Several neighborhoods have homes available for sale, but inventory is not especially high. As a Buyer, you’ll be best prepared by realizing what this means:

  • Homes that are priced correctly for the market won’t stay available long
  • Don’t be surprised if the home you’re considering gets multiple Offers
  • If you have already taken the initial needed steps to obtain financing, you may wind up in a better position to purchase
