chrisbjohnsonrealtor: #TimeToBuy Mortgage Interest Rates Hit New 12 Month Low! #5StarREALTOR - 02/27/19 09:43 AM
According to Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey, interest rates for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage are currently at their lowest for 2019. Rates like these haven’t been seen since February 2018!
Last week’s survey results reported an interest rate of 4.35%. This is a welcome change from the near 5% rates seen in mid-November. At 4.32%, the second week of February 2018 was the last time rates were this low. This can be seen in the chart below.

Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist, Sam Khater, had this to say:
“Mortgage rates fell for the third consecutive week, continuing the general downward trend … (0 comments)

Algunos aspectos destacados: Cada año United Van Lines lleva a cabo su ‘National Movers Study’ rastreando la mudanza de sus clientes de estado a estado durante el transcurso del año. Vermont reclamó el primer lugar de los estados con el nivel más alto de estrada después de una campaña que cubría los costos de reubicación de los trabajadores calificados que se mudaron al estado. La respuesta más común por la cual alguien se reubico en otro estado fue por un trabajo nuevo o transferencia de la compañía.

Is Now a Good Time to Rent? People often ask if now is a good time to buy a home, but nobody ever asks when a good time to rent is. Regardless, we want to make certain that everyone understands that today is NOT a good time to rent.
The Census Bureau recently released their 2017 first quarter median rent numbers. Here is a graph showing rent increases from 1988 until today:

As you can see, rents have steadily increased and are showing no signs of slowing down. If you are faced with making the decision of whether or not you should renew … (0 comments)

chrisbjohnsonrealtor: US Housing Market Continues the Move into ‘Buy Territory’! - 04/18/17 08:38 AM
According to the Beracha, Hardin & Johnson Buy vs. Rent (BH&J) Index, the U.S. housing market has continued to move deeper into buy territory, supporting the belief that housing markets across the country remain a sound investment.
The BH&J Index is a quarterly report that attempts to answer the question:
In today’s housing market, is it better to rent or buy a home? The index examines the entire US housing market and then isolates 23 major cities for comparison. The researchers “measure the relationship between purchasing property and building wealth through a buildup in equity versus renting a comparable property and investing in a portfolio … (1 comments)

chrisbjohnsonrealtor: Consumer Confidence in Housing is Soaring #ChrisBJohnsonRealtor - 03/30/17 09:12 AM
The success of the housing market is strongly tied to the consumer’s confidence in the overall economy. For that reason, we believe 2017 will be a great year for real estate. Here is just a touch of the news coverage on the subject.
HousingWire: “Consumers’ faith in the housing market is stronger than it’s ever been before, according to a newly released survey from Fannie Mae.”
Bloomberg: “Americans’ confidence continued to mount last week as the Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index reached the highest point in a decade on more-upbeat assessments about the economy and buying climate.”

chrisbjohnsonrealtor: The Golden Rules of Lead Management & CRM - 12/09/15 01:46 AM

Here are 4 important things to consider when responding to and qualifying leads.
#1 – Lead Response Time: You know it folks, you should respond in 5 minutes or less. (Not to stress you out, but there’s a 400% decrease in your odds of qualifying if you respond just 5 minutes later. Ugh.)
#2 – Best Day to Qualify: Survey says—Wednesday or Thursday! (Clearly this rule doesn’t apply when you’re responding to inquiries—see #1—but if you’re looking for a good day to reach out, take either of these for a spin.)
#3 – Best Time: Between 4:00 – 5:00PM. (Seriously, there’s a 164% difference in the qualification rates of … (2 comments)

THURSDAY THOUGHTS ON LEADERSHIP: A TIME TO GIVE THANKS Today, let's talk about Thanksgiving. We as human beings work very hard and always maintain a strong work ethic. Yet, as busy as we get, there are times when it’s important to step back, reflect and be thankful for all we have and all of the people in our lives we’re blessed to have around us. There are many reasons why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday (and no, it’s not just the food coma and football) but I want to share one … (5 comments)

chrisbjohnsonrealtor: THINK SMALL, It's Not What You Think... - 10/14/15 09:23 AM
   Creative disruption has a very specific definition in the context of an increasingly stale business world focused on the bottom line instead of innovation and progress.
Josh Linker's premise about creative disruption is masterfully detailed in his book, “The Road to Reinvention: How to Drive Disruption and Accelerate Transformation.” In essence, Josh says true disruption often comes from small, start-up companies. While large organizations are busy protecting the “Golden Goose,” entrepreneurs have nothing to defend … and this works in their favor. Their every thought must be about ways to break traditional business models rather than maintaining them; they must invent … (2 comments)
