PDX Real Estate 145: How to Adapt to a Real Estate Market Correction—with Justin Harnish

The real estate market was nothing but hot in 2021. We saw a staggering number of transactions, and most homes were on the market for less than a week.

And now the market is correcting. Real estate has a longer shelf life and there are fewer buyers.

But what if this shift in the market isn’t necessarily a bad thing? What can we do as brokers to adapt to the circumstances and be successful for the long term?

Justin Harnish is the Broker-Owner of Harnish Properties, and industry leader in the sales and marketing of luxury homes in and around Lake Oswego.

On this episode of the Portland Real Estate Podcast, Justin joins cohosts Joe Fustolo and Steve Nassar to discuss how the real estate market has changed in recent months, describing how demand has stepped back while supply remains the same.

They explain how the interest rate hike works in favor of cash buyers, why off market sales are a good play right now, and what a market correction means for buyers, sellers and agents.

Listen in for insight on keeping sellers happy right now and learn how you can adapt and be successful in the current market environment!
