Make Property Showings EASY

One of the key elements on selling a house successfully is exposure to as many buyers as possible. The more people see it the more offers you will receive. People in general have time to shop in the afternoon after work or on the weekends. These are prime times for your agent to show your property or have open houses. Electronic lock boxes are a safe way to give access to properties without the need of you to be present, because they keep track of who has come in, what time, etc. There is a great benefit on making property showings easy to the public. You will end up selling for more money. Remember also that the more exposure the faster your property will sell. Please contact us if you have more questions or comments about this or other Real Estate topics.

Homeownership: “A Man Is Not a Complete Man, Unless He Owns a House”

The famous quote by Walt Whitman, “A man is not a whole and complete man, unless he owns a house and the ground it stands on,” can be used to describe homeownership in America today. The Census revealed that the percentage of homeowners in America has been steadily climbing back up since hitting a 50-year low in 2016. The homeownership rate in the first quarter of 2018 was 64.2%, higher than last year’s 63.6%.

Chief Economist, Dr. Ralph McLaughlin, in his VUE Blog gave these new homeownership numbers some context:

“The trend is clear: the homeownership rate has been ticking up for five consecutive quarters, and the number of new renter households has fallen for four consecutive quarters. Owner-occupied households grew by 1.345 million from a year ago, while the number of renters actually fell by 286,000 households.

The fact that we now have four consecutive quarters where owner households increased while renter households fell is a strong sign households are making a switch from renting to buying. This is a trend that multifamily builders, investors, and landlords should take note of.”

In a separate article comparing the rental population in America to the homeowner population, Realtor.com also concluded that the gap is now shrinking:

“The U.S. added 1.3 million owner households over the last year and lost 286,000 renter households, the fourth consecutive quarter in which the number of renter households declined from the same quarter a year earlier. That could pose challenges for apartment landlords, who are bracing this year for one of the largest infusions of new rental supply in three decades.”

America’s belief in homeownership was also evidenced in a survey conducted by Pew Research. They asked consumers “How important is homeownership to achieving the American Dream?”

The results:

♦ 43% said homeownership was essential to the American Dream
♦ 48% said homeownership was important to the American Dream
♦ Only 9% said it was not important

Bottom Line

Homeownership has been, is, and always will be a crucial part of the American Dream. Contact us and we will make your DREAM come HOME!

Finding a Replacement Property after Selling your Existing Home

Sellers are getting at least 5% above the listing price of their properties. That makes it a perfect time to sell. Unfortunately for the Buyers the competition and the low inventory makes it very hard to buy a property and get a good deal at the same time. When you are in need of selling and buying at the same time, timing is your enemy. What you gain on the sell side you will lose it on the buy side so here are some ideas on how could be done without losing money. Please contact us if you have more questions or comments about this or other Real Estate topics.

Buyer Request for Repairs or Credit

Some issues that come out during the inspection on a property, can be negotiated with the seller to be fixed or get some credit for them. It is important to know that it is not the seller’s obligation to do it or even answer to the buyer’s request, but a good agent with very good negotiations skills plays a key role here.
