plano realtor: Wall Street Journal: Housing Recovery Picks Up Steam - 06/02/16 02:09 AM

Yesterday, we ran a post quoting major housing experts on the increasing strength of the U.S. housing market. We were pleasantly surprised that, on the same day, the Wall Street Journal decided to run a front page story titled, “Housing Recovery Picks Up Steam” (article available to WSJ subscribers).
The first paragraph of the article says it best:
“Home prices are back to near-record highs across the U.S. amid rising demand and supply constraints, a sign that the lopsided housing-market recovery of the past five years is gaining some strength.” (emphasis added).
What about the struggles in the economy?Some openly question how the real estate market can be gaining ground … (0 comments)

plano realtor: Real Estate Market Watch: A Possible Housing Meltdown? These Experts Respectfully Disagree - 06/01/16 01:51 AM

We want to let you know that “rumors of a new market meltdown” are not based on any reputable data. As proof, we offer you the comments of the following experts who have a totally different view on the current housing market.
Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR:In spite of deficient supply levels, stock market volatility and the paltry economic growth seen so far this year, the housing market did show resilience and had its best first quarter of existing-sales since 2007.”

plano realtor: Market Watch: How Does Housing Help Build Family Wealth? - 05/31/16 12:25 AM

As the economy continues to improve, more and more Americans are seeing their personal financial situations also improving. Instead of just getting by, many are now beginning to save and find other ways to build their net worth. One way to dramatically increase their family wealth is through the acquisition of real estate.
For example, let’s assume a young couple purchased and closed on a $250,000 home in January. What will that home be worth five years down the road? 
Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists every quarter. They ask them to … (0 comments)

You and your family have decided to sell your house. It is now time to choose a real estate professional to help with the process. One of the major attributes this agent must possess is trustworthiness. To what degree do you need to trust them?

plano realtor: Real Estate Market Watch: Sell NOW Before Competition Hits the Market - 05/25/16 03:01 AM

In their current edition of the Home Price Expectation Survey released last week, Pulsenomics asked this question of the 100+ economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists they surveyed:
“In your opinion, what is the primary driver of recent home value growth in the U.S.?”Here are the top four reasons given by those surveyed:
As we have stated before, the current lack of inventory in most housing markets has caused home appreciation to increase at greater percentages than historical averages. This means that this is a great time to sell your home as supply is low and demand is high.
However, things may be about to … (0 comments)

plano realtor: Real Estate Market Watch: When Is It A Good Time To Rent? Definitely NOT NOW! - 05/23/16 12:56 AM

People often ask whether or not now is a good time to buy a home. No one ever asks when a good time to rent is. However, we want to make certain that everyone understands that today is NOT a good time to rent.
The Census Bureau recently released their first quarter median rent numbers. Here is a graph showing rent increases from 1988 until today:
A recent Wall Street Journal article reports that rents rose “faster last year than at any time since 2007, a boon for landlords but one that has stoked concerns about housing affordability for renters.”
The article also cited results from a recent Reis Inc. report … (0 comments)

plano realtor: Real Estate Market Watch: Are Foreclosures Increasing or Decreasing? - 05/18/16 12:22 AM

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the size of the foreclosure inventory in the nation. There has been some speculation that distressed property inventories are about to skyrocket. Today, we want to reveal what is actually taking place in this segment of the housing market.
CoreLogic, in their most recent National Foreclosure Report, reported that foreclosure inventory has decreased by 23.2% since this time last year. The report also showed that foreclosure inventory has decreased in 49 of the 50 states and that 45 states have posted a year-over-year, double-digit decline (see chart below).
Other findings in the report:

plano realtor: Real Estate Seller’s Market: Is it Time to Downsize? - 05/17/16 03:04 AM

A study by Edelman Berland reveals that 33% of homeowners who are contemplating selling their house in the near future are planning to scale down. Let’s look at a few reasons why this might make sense for many homeowners, as the majority of the country is currently experiencing a seller’s market.
In a recent blog, Dave Ramsey, the financial guru, highlighted the advantages of selling your current house and downsizing into a smaller home that better serves your current needs. Ramsey explains three potential financial advantages to downsizing:
A smaller home means less space, but it also means less time, stress and money spent on upkeep. Let’s … (1 comments)

plano realtor: Market Watch: Sales Up In Nearly Every Price Range - 05/16/16 04:26 AM

The National Association of Realtors’ most recent Existing Home Sales Report revealed that home sales were up rather dramatically over last year in five of the six price ranges they measure.
Only those homes priced under $100,000 showed a decline (-4.6%). The decline in this price range points to the lower inventory of distressed properties available for sale and speaks to the strength of the market.
Every other category showed a minimum increase of at least 4.6%, with sales in the $250,000- $500,000 range up 15.2%!
Here is the breakdown:
What does that mean to you if you are selling?Houses are definitely selling. If your house has been on the … (0 comments)
