thinking of selling: iBuyers: Consider the “Cost of Convenience” When Selling Your Home? - 08/31/19 12:41 PM

When thinking about selling their house, homeowners have many options. A relatively new option is using an “iBuyer.” What is an iBuyer?
According to Jovio, the definition is:
“A company or investor that uses Automated Valuation Models (AVMs) to make instant offers on homes. It allows sellers to close on a property quickly. Once sold, the company then turns around and resells the home for a profit.”
Today, there are many iBuyer companies such as OfferPad, Zillow Offers, Knock, Opendoor, and Perch. Even some more traditional companies offer the same or similar services (ex. Keller Williams, Redfin, Realogy). Ivy Zelman reported in her ‘Z’ Report that some traditional brokers are partnering with some of the larger … (0 comments)

thinking of selling: What a Difference a Year Makes for Sellers - 07/17/19 02:27 PM

Over the last few years, many sellers have been hesitant to put their houses on the market because they feared not being able to find another home to buy.
We’ve reported on inventory shortages in the past, and it’s been a constant concern for potential buyers throughout recent years. New research shows the inventory concern is starting to decrease among potential buyers.
According to First American, the two leading obstacles to homeownership that buyers feel today are Affordability and Limited Inventory. This means the feeling that homes are less affordable has risen, while the fear of limited inventory has decreased, delivering a wealth of good news … (0 comments)

thinking of selling: #1 Reason to List Your House for Sale, NOW! - 06/01/17 07:51 AM

If you are debating listing your house for sale this year, here is the #1 reason not to wait!
Buyer Demand Continues to Outpace the Supply of Homes for Sale  The National Association of REALTORS’ (NAR) Chief Economist Lawrence Yun recently commented on the inventory:
“Last month’s dip in closings was somewhat expected given that there was such a strong sales increase in March at 4.2 percent, and new and existing inventory is not keeping up with the fast pace homes are coming off the market.
Demand is easily outstripping supply in most of the country and it’s stymieing many prospective buyers from finding a home … (0 comments)

thinking of selling: Thinking of Selling? Do it TODAY!! - 03/08/17 08:16 AM

That headline might be a little aggressive. However, as the data on the 2017 housing market begins to roll in, we can definitely say one thing: If you are considering selling, IT IS TIME TO LIST YOUR HOME!
The February numbers are not in yet, but the January numbers were sensational. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist for the National Association of Realtors, said:
“Much of the country saw robust sales activity last month as strong hiring and improved consumer confidence at the end of last year appear to have sparked considerable interest in buying a home. Market challenges remain, but the housing market is off to a … (2 comments)

thinking of selling: Lack of Homes for Sale Slowing Down the Housing Market - 02/09/17 07:43 AM

The housing crisis is finally in the rear-view mirror as the real estate market moves down the road to a complete recovery. Home values are up. Home sales are up. Distressed sales (foreclosures and short sales) have fallen dramatically. It seems that 2017 will be the year that the housing market races forward again.
However, there is one thing that may cause the industry to tap the brakes: a lack of housing inventory. While buyer demand looks like it will remain strong throughout the winter, supply is not keeping up.
Here are the thoughts of a few industry experts on the subject:National Association of Realtors“Total … (0 comments)

Selling in the Winter Attracts Serious Buyers
A recent study of more than 7 million home sales over the past four years revealed that the season in which a home is listed may be able to shed some light on the likelihood that the home will sell for more than asking price, as well as how quickly the sale will close.
It’s no surprise that listing a home for sale during the spring saw the largest return, as the spring is traditionally the busiest month for real estate. What is surprising, though, is that listing during the winter came in second!
“Among spring listings, 18.7 percent … (1 comments)

Buyer Demand Continues to Outpace the Supply of Homes For SaleThe National Association of REALTORS’ (NAR) Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun recently commented on the inventory shortage:
“With demand holding firm and homes selling even faster than a year ago, the notable increase in closings in recent months took a dent out of what was available for sale.
Realtors are acknowledging, with increasing frequency lately, that buyers continue to be frustrated by the tense competition and lack of affordable homes for sale in their market.”
The latest Existing Home Sales Report shows that there is currently a 4.6-month supply of homes for sale. This remains lower than the … (5 comments)

2014 Prediction: Supply Will Struggle to Keep Up with Demand

There is a dramatic increase in demand for housing expected this year and making sure there is enough inventory to satisfy this demand will be a challenge for most of 2014.
We know that in order to have a balanced real estate market there should be between 5-6 months of inventory for sale.  Nationally, we are just about at the 5 month level.  As the spring selling season approaches, a new wave of housing inventory must come to market to keep up with the increasing demand of buyers.
