Making Offers on Multiple Houses at the Same Time ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’ฒ

ย Is it legal and possible to make offers on multiple houses at the same time as a home buyer?

YES, you can make as many offers as you want, and it is legal to do it. You should have multiple offers as a strategy over this competitive market. You might not get the one you like most but maybe you will get the second one you like most without losing time waiting for the first offer to be rejected or not.

Contact us and let us help you to set the perfect strategy to get your dream home.

Selling Your Home? Make Sure the Price is Right! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‰

If youโ€™ve ever watched โ€œThe Price is Right,โ€ you know that the only way to win is to be the one to correctly guess the price of the item you want without going over! That means your guess must be just slightly under the retail price.

In todayโ€™s shifting real estate market, where more inventory is coming to market and home values are projected to appreciate at lower rates, homeowners will not be able to price their homes as aggressively as they were able to just last year.

They will have to employ the same strategy: be the closest without going over!

As we have explained before, pricing your home at or slightly below market value actually increases the number of buyers who will see your home in their search!

Over the last six months, more inventory has come to market while the monthsโ€™ supply of inventory available has dropped. This means that the demand for homes to buy is still very strong throughout the country!

Homeowners who make the mistake of overpricing their homes will eventually have to drop the price. This leaves buyers wondering if the price drop was caused by something wrong with the homes when in reality nothing was wrong, the price was just too high!

Bottom Line

If you are thinking about listing your home for sale this year, contact us and we can help you properly price your home from the start!

The Best Time to List Your House? TODAY! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿข๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ“†๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ”‘

You may have heard that the housing market is softening. There is no doubt that buyer traffic has decreased. There are fewer purchasers in the market than there were last month and at this time last year. What you may not have heard, however, is that there is still a severe shortage of listing inventory in many regions of the country.

In a recent interview discussing the housing market, First Americanโ€™s Chief Economist Mark Fleming put it simply:

โ€œThe biggest challenge is really the availability of supply.โ€

When we look at available inventory numbers released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), we see that the actual number of homes for sale has decreased in past months. (Chart – Number of Listings)

What does this mean to you as a seller?

The best time to sell is when there is less competition. That guarantees you a better price and fewer hassles in the transaction.

Bottom Line

If you are thinking of selling your house this year, the best time to put it on the market might be right now. Contact us for a market update on your neighborhood.

Think You Should For Sale By Owner? Think Again! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ“ฃโœ‹

 

Some Highlights:

โ™ฆ For Sale By Owner (FSBO) is the process of selling real estate without the representation of a real estate broker or real estate agent.
โ™ฆ According to the National Association of Realtorsโ€™ Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers, 36% of homeowners who decided to FSBO last year did so to avoid paying a commission or fee. But, homes sold with an agent net 6% more than those sold as a FSBO according to Collateral Analytics!
โ™ฆ Before you decide to take on the challenges of selling your house on your own, contact us and letโ€™s get together to discuss the advantages of having us on your side.

Buying a Home Young is the Key to Building Wealth ๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ โณ๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘จโ€

Homeowners who purchase their homes before the age of 35 are better prepared for retirement at age 60, according to a new Urban Institute study. The organization surveyed adults who turned 60 or 61 between 2003 and 2015 for their data set.

โ€œTodayโ€™s older adults became homeowners at a younger age than todayโ€™s young adults. Half the older adults in our sample bought their first house when they were between 25 and 34 years old, and 27 percent bought their first home before age 25.โ€

The full breakdown is in the chart below:

buying a home young is the key to building wealth A

The study goes on to show the impact of purchasing a home at an early age. Those who purchased their first homes when they were younger than 25 had an average of $10,000 left on their mortgage at age 60. The 50% of buyers who purchased in their mid-twenties and early-30s had close to $50,000 left, but traditionally had purchased more expensive homes.

buying a home young is the key to building wealth B

Many housing experts are concerned that the homeownership rate amongst millennials, those 18-34, is much lower than previous generations in the same age range. The study results gave a great reason why this generation should consider buying instead of signing a renewal on their lease:

โ€œAs people age into retirement, they rely more heavily on their wealth rather than their income to support their lifestyles. Todayโ€™s young adults are failing to build housing wealth, the largest single source of wealth, at the same rate as previous generations.

While people make the choice to own or rent that suits them at a given point, maybe more young adults should take into account the long-term consequences of renting when homeownership is an option.โ€

Bottom Line

If you are one of the many young people debating whether buying a home this year is right for you, contact us and can help you explore your best options.

First Comes Loveโ€ฆ Then Mortgage? ๐Ÿ’–โžก๏ธ๐Ÿ“„๐Ÿ 

Couples Lead the Way

According to theย National Association of REALTORSย most recentย Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers,ย married couples once again dominated the first-time homebuyer statistics in 2018 at 54% of all buyers. It is no surprise that buying a home is more attainable with two incomes to save for down payments and contribute to monthly housing costs.

However, many couples are also deciding to buy a home before spending what would be a down payment on a wedding. Last year, unmarried couples accounted for 16% of all first-time buyers.

If youโ€™re single, donโ€™t fret!ย Single women made up 18% of first-time buyers in 2018, while single men accounted for 10% of buyers. One recentย articleย pointed to a sense of responsibility and commitment that drives many single women to want to own their home, rather than rent.

The table is the breakdown of all first-time homebuyers in 2018 by percentage of all buyers, income, and age.

Bottom Line

You may not be that much different than those who have already purchased their first homes. Contact us and letโ€™s get together to determine if your dream home is already within your grasp!
