Buyer's Market

A market situation in which lower prices prevail due to excess supply and a shortage of demand. A buyer's market may occur in one particular sector or across the wider economy. For example, if there are 10 houses in a neighborhood and eight of them are up for sale, it is likely that their prices will race toward the bottom. This means that a prospective homebuyer looking in that area will almost certainly find a good deal on a house. See also: Seller's market.
