Move-up Homebuyers are Opting to Build in Metro Verde, Las Cruces

Many homebuyers purchase a home with the intent of living in it for several years. However, as life circumstances change and as most Americans continue spending more time at home than ever before, some homebuyers may find themselves questioning whether they’ve outgrown their current living situation. If you’re paying a mortgage but find yourself feeling dissatisfied with your living space, chances are, you’re move-up homebuyers. Most move-up homebuyers are motivated by the prospect of selling their current house for one that is bigger, newer or located in a more ideal neighborhood.

Small-space fatigue is one of the many symptoms that trigger a desire to move into a new home. Over the last year, features such as a larger living area and backyard have been at the top of most move-up buyers’ lists of must-haves in a new home. It’s no wonder that so many citizens are fleeing the big city to settle down in a more spacious and lively community located here in the southwest.

Record Low Home Inventory

Near the end of 2020, the U.S. saw a record low number of available homes for sale. According to the National Association of Realtors, housing inventory stood at just 1.07 million homes on a national level last December, which is the lowest number we’ve seen since the 1980s. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems that homeowners are feeling a high level of uncertainty when it comes to selling their current living space, and the lack of available homes has impacted buyers everywhere, including right here in Las Cruces.

Despite the low number of for-sale homes available, the Land of Enchantment continues to see a massive influx of newcomers. While those interested in purchasing an existing home have been faced with slim pickings, thanks to booming new real estate, home builders are ramping up production in order to meet buyer demand. With the steady improvement of the economy, additional new home sales are expected to rise in 2021.
