High U.S. Bidding-War Rates & Cash Offers
It is also becoming increasingly difficult for individuals to join bidding wars in hot housing markets. “Nearly two-thirds (64.0%) of home offers written by Redfin agents in March faced competition up from a revised rate of 62.1% in February,” Lily Katz of Redfin reported.
CNN reported in May that “the median sale price for existing homes climbed 16% from the first quarter of 2020 to $319,200.”
