In the Southern Oregon real estate market the biggest problem facing Buyers lately (2013/2014) has been a lack of good solid inventory. This makes an Exclusive Buyers Agent job even more difficult, as there are fewer options currently than buyers typically expect. Try to keep in mind that with the competition and low inventory, once you find a satisfactory property at a reasonable price, you need to weigh your needs with your wants to determine your best move. In order to get into the current market buyers often have to make compromises they weren’t originally considering. This is what often happens in a Seller market where there are typically more buyers than inventory can support.
