Rising Home Prices Mean Great News For Homeowners

Source: www.keepingcurrentmatters.com

Recently there has been a lot of talk about home prices and if they are accelerating too quickly. As we mentioned before, in some areas of the country, seller supply (homes for sale) cannot keep up with the number of buyers who are out looking for homes, which has caused prices to rise.
The great news about rising prices, however, is that according to CoreLogic’s Homeowner Equity Report, the average American household gained over $14,000 in equity over the course of the last year, largely due to home value increases.
The map below was created using the same report from CoreLogic and shows the average equity gain per mortgaged home during the 1st quarter of 2017 (the latest data available).


For those who are worried that we are doomed to repeat 2006 all over again, it is important to note that homeowners are investing their new-found equity in their homes and themselves, not in depreciating assets.
The added equity is helping families put their children through college, invest in starting small businesses, pay off their mortgages sooner and even move up to the home that will better suit their needs now.
Bottom Line
If you are a homeowner looking to take advantage of your home equity by moving up to your dream home, let’s get together to discuss your options!

A Buyer In Hand Is Worth Two In The Bush

Source: www.keepingcurrentmatters.com

In today’s highly competitive seller’s market where there are more buyers than there are homes for them to buy, some sellers may feel like the ball is in their court.

And they would be right when it comes to choosing which offer to accept, the closing date, or even which improvements they are willing to make to their house prior to selling.

One thing to remember though, is that there is always a line that shouldn’t be crossed.

Interest rates can change, financing might not go through, the appraisal might not come back at the price that you have agreed to. These are all opportunities to work with your buyer to make sure that the sale still happens.

You may think that, because buyer demand is so high right now, you can choose to make your buyer jump through hoops. But what happens if they reach their limit and need to walk away? You’re starting over… weeks, maybe months later… and other buyers may wonder what’s wrong with the house since the last deal fell through.

The Golden Rule

We were all taught from a young age to “treat others as you would like to be treated.” This shouldn’t change once you have a buyer who seems as though they would do anything to buy your home.

How to Choose a Realtor

Buying a home can be a very exciting and rewarding time.  But it can also be a time of frustration and anxiety.  Having the right Realtor® on your side can make all the difference in helping make your experience a positive one.  Doing some research on real estate companies in the area (It can be very helpful to have a local Realtor®) may reveal helpful information such as their credibility, experience level and satisfaction rating, their culture, and their training, backing and support for their Realtors®.  Know that it is ok to interview several Realtors® as well.  Tell them specifically what your needs are, and then ask them what their plan is to get you where you want to be.  A little time spent upfront can be valuable in finding a Realtor® that fits you, and your specific needs.

In an Realtor®, you want someone that you see is working hard towards your objective.  If you are a seller, you may want a Realtor® that is working diligently towards selling your home quickly, and for the highest price.  If you are buying, you might want to seek out a Realtor® that has the knowledge and resources to help find the home that meets your needs and terms, and at the lowest price.  A good ‘up-front’ planning session should provide you with a good feel for the honesty and integrity of the Realtor®, their knowledge of the local market (the buying and selling process, the available inventory, and how quickly homes in the individual price ranges are going under contract), a communication plan, and, to some extent, an idea of their negotiation skills, on your behalf.  Regular communication with your Realtor® will keep you up to date on the progress of your plan, on any changes in the market, and on any new strategies to gain you the competitive edge.
