Three Things Homebuyers Can Ask for Now

It’s still a seller’s market, but its strength has declined. Buyers now have a little leeway with sellers and notably more bargaining leverage with lenders.

NEW YORK – Despite being challenged by low inventory and high mortgage rates, house-hunters have some bargaining power with lenders who have money to lend yet fewer mortgage applicants. They’re competing for a shrinking pool of homebuyers, which gives applicants a bit more leverage.
