Economic Indicators

As the summer draws to a close, multiple opposing factors and trends are competing to define the direction of the real estate market.

[UPDATE: On September 18, 2019, the Fed cut rates another ¼% for a target range for the Federal Funds Rate of 1.75-2.00%]. In spite of these rate cuts, most experts agree that the

Home Sales begin to slow

The pace of home sales began to slow in the last quarter of 2018, despite a strong economy, high employment, and steady wage growth. Although prices have continued to rise, the rate of the increase is slowing.  Blame for the slowdown was given to a combination of both high prices and steady interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve. This month, the Fed responded by not increasing rates further for the time being.

Affordability continues to be an issue

This 4 bedroom, 4.2 bath contemporary style home, that I found for my delightful buyers, sits on just under half an acre of land that precedes the dramatic lake view. 

With over 4,400 total square feet of living space that encompasses top-of-the-line amenities and elegant furnishings, this home sold for a $2,100,000! 

The magnificent estate has been completely renovated to embrace a more modern, yet inviting look. The hurricane-resistant, floor to ceiling windows beautifully accentuate the open floor plan to allow natural, bright light to engulf the entire home. Glamorous new additions such as Italian porcelain and wood floors, impressive custom kitchen cabinetry, opulent Thermador appliances, and a 24 inch wine cooler have been supplemented

Selling a home is a difficult and emotional process and obviously you want to get the highest price possible. There are many factors that affect the price that you will ultimately get for your house. Some of these include: recent past sales in your neighborhood (what appraisers look at), what is currently on the market (your competition), interest rates, and general market conditions. Additionally, you must keep your house in mint “show ready” condition, and make it easy to be shown. Lastly, your Realtor® needs to be an expert negotiator adept in marketing your home for maximum exposure.

Real estate market prices are always dictated by supply and demand. In a seller’s market, there are more buyers than sellers, thus inventory levels decrease. When this happens, the supply is reduced and prices inevitably rise. In many segments of our local real estate market, we are seeing quick sales and often multiple offers. So what can you do to help your offer stand out so you can get your dream home? 

Don’t Lowball ~ Know the Market
As they say, “You only have one chance to make a first impression”. You need to understand the market, that is knowing what is currently on the market as well as what other comparable homes have recently sold for.  In a seller’s market with the potential of multiple offers, your lowball offer will be immediately
