For prospective homebuyers seeking superior schools, enhanced job opportunities, lower crime rates, or other desirable qualities in a neighborhood, the real estate market has been fiercely competitive in recent years.

The U.S. housing market faced a significant downturn over the past two years due to soaring mortgage rates and a scarcity of available homes. However, the gradual decrease in rates since last fall has eased monthly mortgage burdens, offering some relief to buyers contending with escalating prices and limited housing inventory this year.
