home sales: Is Residential Real Estate Still Going Strong? - 08/09/23 12:29 PM

New reports about the housing market show that residential real estate is still going strong despite the ongoing affordability challenges.
Last week, the National Association of Realtors released their Pending Home Sales data for June 2023. The report below shows the number of pending home sales – which equates to the actual signed contracts on existing single-family homes and condos – rose 0.3% from May to June.
Since February, this is the first time that pending home sales have increased. This is very significant because it shows that even though mortgage rates have  elevated, home buyers are starting to accept the higher borrowing … (4 comments)

home sales: Do Mortgage Rates Really Effect Home Sales? - 10/08/22 02:36 PM
Do Mortgage Rates Really Effect Home Sales?
 
If you ask a renter why they are choosing not to buy a home right now, an answer you will probably hear is “rates are too high.” If you asked a renter in the summer or fall of 2020 why they decided to buy, you would probably hear “rates were low.”
The highest national average a 30 year fixed rate mortgage has reached since January 2007 is 6.70% which was in July 2007. Believe it or not, Wisconsin home sales WERE NOT at an all-time low. The fewest monthly home sales Wisconsin had in this time … (12 comments)

A Strategy to Get More Listings
 
Listings are the Name of the Game, or so they say.  There are so many different strategies available today in real estate to get the attention of a potential seller who wants to get their house sold ... quick and for a fair price.
 
 
In years past, before I was in real estate, I ran a Business Support company and one of the services I offered was consulting with people looking for a job.  During my initial consultation I would compile information about the candidate: their work history, goals, achievements and challenges … (34 comments)

Sellers Need to Know the TRUTH About ODORS ...
 
What's That Smell?
 
There is no question about it; smells are a distraction and disturbance to most buyers when they are looking for a home to call their own. As a Seller, it is important that you not live in denial of odors that could offend or ward off buyers.
 
Biggest Offender?
Pet smells are probably the biggest turn-off (dogs, cats, birds, snakes?)
 
Second Biggest Offender?
 
 
Cooking certain foods can also be a problem.  Examples: Cooking with Curry, Fish, Cauliflower, etc.
 
When meeting with a prospective seller about listing their home, if there is a smell that can be … (28 comments)

home sales: I Don't Want To Reduce The Price Of My Home! - 11/22/14 02:59 PM


I Don't Want to Reduce the
Price of my Home!
 

 
I fully understand your reluctance to reduce the price of your home.  You want to get the best possible value for your property, and so do I.
 
Unfortunately, the best possible value varies over time according to various factors.  Even though demand and prices may go up at some future date, allowing your home to linger on the market for an excessive length of time will tend to reduce its relative value.  And then there's the question of how long you are willing to … (2 comments)
