Typically, spring and summer mark the peak seasons in residential real estate. Many families seize the opportunity presented by the favorable weather and their children’s summer break to embark on their house hunting journey. However, it’s worth noting that in most regions, spring is synonymous with higher housing prices due to increased demand. Consequently, the market becomes saturated with buyers, intensifying the competition.Here are some strategic steps you can take to gain an edge over other buyers:1. Engage Early with Real Estate Agents: If you’re considering working with a real estate agent, it’s wise to start the process early. Take the time to interview three to four agents and also reach out to their references. Once you’ve made your selection, communicate your preferences cl...

Latest news on the Canyon Creek Real Estate market for First Quarter 2024….What you need to know now…..What it means for you…..The real estate landscape in Canyon Creek, Austin, TX, has shown promising signs of activity during the first quarter of 2024. As we transition into the second quarter, we observe a limited number of active listings, with just two properties available, alongside a notable uptick of eight homes currently under contract. However, it's important to note that the number of homes sold this quarter has experienced a 25% decrease compared to the same period last year. Despite this, there is a modest increase of 2% in the average sold price, while the price per square foot has seen a slight decline.In the previous year, homes entering the spring market garnered signific...

Call it what you want--  Great room, Living room, Family room.   Most home owners and builders have come to the conclusion--  they only need one.With busy lives and not as much time to slow down and entertain as perhaps our parents had, this room, where still exists, usually:*Sits empty like a museum display*Becomes a music room*Gets closed off with doors added and becomes an office  (Like I did)This is particularly true with empty nesters who tend to use one room to relax, read or watch TV.I wonder how floor plans will evolve 50 years from now?

Smooth Sailing In The "Settlement" Storm and The Imminent Season of ChaosTransparency is good! But, in recent headlines, the NAR Settlement has garnered significant attention, unfortunately accompanied by widespread misinformation. Even prominent figures like The President have misinterpreted the adjustments, erroneously characterizing them as novel developments when, in fact, they reflect longstanding practices within the industry. While the National Association of REALTORS has implemented alterations, many of us in the field recognize them as consistent with our customary approach to business. Consequently, it's a continuation of standard practices with the potential for a more equitable landscape in the industry.In the aftermath of this lawsuit, consumers stand to gain little. Despit...

#5 Best City to Live in Maryland - TowsonIn keeping with a theme, The World Atlas recently published a list of the 7 best cities to live in Maryland. The number 5 city is Towson. Towson is the county seat for Baltimore County and home to Towson University. Towson is located just north of Baltimore City. Towson's proximity to Baltimore City, its excellent public schools, and its proximity to parks and recreational facilities make it a popular choice for homeowners.It is a little-known fact that Maryland doesn't have any natural lakes, even though some bodies of water are called lakes. Loch Raven Reservoir is the largest body of water in Baltimore County, it holds 23 billion gallons of water and has over 60 miles of hiking trails.My youngest son is a graduate of Towson High School, we bel...

Latest news on the Canyon Creek Real Estate market in March 2024….What you need to know now…..What it means for you…..March 2024 is showing promising signs of activity in the Canyon Creek real estate market in Austin, TX. I am thrilled to report the closure of two of my listings out of the five properties sold, both of which garnered multiple offers. The enthusiasm among buyers for fresh, well-presented, and reasonably priced homes is exciting. Many buyers are actively seeking to make a purchase as their current leases approach renewal. Open houses remain bustling, reflecting the eagerness of buyers to navigate our limited inventory of homes.Compared to last March, we've witnessed a steady consistency with five closings. Presently, the market comprises only two active homes, averaging a...

This week the median list price for Gilbert, AZ is $699,450 with the market action index hovering around 50. This is an increase over last month's market action index of 49. Inventory has held steady at or around 354. Home sales continue to outstrip supply and the Market Action Index has been moving higher for several weeks. This is a Seller’s market so watch for upward pricing pressure in the near future if the trend continues.  The market is hovering around this plateau. Look for a persistent change in the Market Action Index before we see prices deviate from these levels.    YOUR   Latest activity in the VALLEY of the SUNFor ALL your Valley AZ Real Estate NeedsPHONE   Bill   at   602-999-0952Text         Bill   at    602-999-0952Email      Bill    at     billAZElite@cox.net Read othe...

A homeowners’ association (HOA) often takes charge of a community, offering amenities and services in exchange for an annual fee. The goal is to attract new homeowners, keep existing homeowners happy, and maintain growth pressure that keeps housing prices in the area high and rising.So what are the best amenities to have in your HOA to achieve this?Key Qualities for HOA AmenitiesHOAs should be on the lookout for amenities that offer a combination of the following: Practical value. Amenities should serve some kind of practical value to homeowners. Maybe it's a place where they can take care of a chore or errand. Maybe it's a place where they can take their kids or pets for nearby, safe recreation. No matter what, it should serve a readily identifiable function. Aesthetic value. Ideally, ...
