Here are the 4️⃣ major homeowner concerns and a quick explanation of what’s actually happening in the housing market today.

1. Homeowners don’t know if they’ll be able to secure their next home before selling. 🎯📦
In today’s market, buyers have compelling reasons to purchase a home now. These buyer needs give the seller tremendous leverage to negotiate time to find their next home.

2. Homeowners don’t know if their current home will sell for asking price or top market price. 💰
This is the perfect time to maximize profits while selling a house. NAR just released a study showing that bidding wars are at an all-time high. When there’s a bidding war, the price escalates. If a seller is looking for a top-dollar sale, there’s no better time to sell than right now.

3. Homeowners don’t know if they will get an offer without their home requiring work or updates. 🛠
Due to low inventory, many buyers are more willing to take on home improvement projects themselves in order to get the home they’re after. If a seller is worried about doing work or updates on their home, they must realize that today’s low inventory likely renders these projects less critical to the sale of the house.

4. Homeowners don’t know if they can have a quick closing process. 📝
When speed is important, there are two points sellers should look at: the time it takes to find a buyer for the home and to close the transaction. Both are moving quickly. If you’re looking for a quick closing process, there’s never been a market in which the two-step process (finding a buyer and closing the deal) has taken less time.

We’d like to say welcome to the neighborho… Recently, two national surveys revealed the reasons homeownership is such an important part of life.🏡

The top three personal benefits of homeownership noted by respondents in Unison’s 2021 report on The State of the American Homeowner are:
>91% - feel secure, stable, or successful owning a home
>70% - feel emotionally attached to the homes that have kept them safe over the past year
>51% - call homeownership a "key part of their life”

These sentiments were supported by the most recent National Housing Survey from Fannie Mae. Those surveyed were given a list of feelings and accomplishments that are associated with or impacted by where we live. They were then asked, “To achieve this, are you better off owning or better off renting?” Here are the top three points from the list that respondents said homeownership could help them achieve:
>91% - control over what you do with your living space
>90% - a sense of privacy and security
>89% - a good place for your family to raise your children

Other nonfinancial advantages of homeownership revealed by the survey include feeling engaged in a community, having flexibility in future decisions, and experiencing less stress.

Financial and nonfinancial benefits are a key component to the value of homeownership, but the nonfinancial side is most valued after a year full of pandemic-driven challenges. DM me today if you’re ready to take the first steps toward becoming a homeowner.

#fridaytrafficinboston #boston #newsbreak #carfire #highway #traffic 22 3 Fridays are lit! 🔥 • • • #fridaytrafficinboston #boston #newsbreak #carfire #highway #traffic At the beginning of the year, industry forecasts called for home price appreciation to slow to about half of the double-digit increase we saw last year. The thinking was that inventory would increase from record-low levels and put an end to the bidding wars that have driven home prices up over the past twelve months. However, that increase in inventory has yet to materialize. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reports that there are currently 410,000 fewer single-family homes available for sale than there were at this time last year.
🏘
This has forced those who made appreciation forecasts this past January to amend those projections. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the National Association of Realtors, and Zelman & Associates have all adjusted their numbers upward after reviewing first quarter housing data, from an average 5.3% to a new average 7.7%.
📈
Even with the increases, the updated projections still don’t reach the above 10% appreciation levels of 2020. However, a jump in the average projection from 5.3% to 7.7% after just one quarter is substantial. Demand will remain strong, so future appreciation will be determined by how quickly listing inventory makes its way to the market.
🏡
Entering 2021, there was some speculation that we might see price appreciation slow dramatically this year. Today, experts believe that won’t be the case. Home values will remain strong throughout the year.

The thinking was that inventory would increase from record-low levels and put an end to the bidding wars that have driven home prices up over the past twelve months. H… The question many homebuyers are facing this year is, “Why is it so hard to find a house?” We’re in the ultimate sellers’ market, which means real estate is ultra-competitive for buyers right now. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) notes homes are getting an average of 4.8 offers per sale, and that number keeps rising. Why? It’s because there are so few houses for sale.

While many homeowners paused their plans to sell during the height of the pandemic, this isn’t the main cause of today’s huge gap between supply and demand. Sam Khater, Vice President and Chief Economist at Freddie Mac, Economic Housing and Research Division, shares, “The main driver of the housing shortfall has been the long-term decline in the construction of single-family homes . . . That decline has resulted in the decrease in supply of entry-level single-family homes or, ’starter homes.’”

The number of newly built homes is disproportionately lower than the rate of household formation, which, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, has continued to increase. To catch up to current demand, Freddie Mac estimates we need to build almost four million homes. The good news is builders are working hard to get us there.

If you’re planning to buy this year, the key to success will be patience, given today’s low inventory environment. DM us today to talk more about what’s happening in our area.

Despite the speed and opportunity for sellers, there are still steps you can take to prep your house to shine so you get the greatest possible return.

-Make Buyers Feel at Home
One of the ways to make this happen is to take time to declutter. The more neutral and tidy the space, the easier it is for a buyer to picture themselves living there. According to NAR, “82% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.”

-Keep It Clean
On top of making an effort to declutter, it’s important to keep your house neat and clean. Before a buyer stops by, be sure to pick up toys, make the beds, and wash the dishes. This is one more way to reduce the number of things that can distract a buyer from the appeal of the home.

-Give Buyers Access
Buyers are less likely to make an offer on your house if they aren’t able to easily schedule a time to check it out. If your home is available anytime, that opens up more opportunity for multiple buyers to go from curious to eager. It also allows buyers on tight schedules to still get in to see your house.

-Price It Right
Even in a sellers’ market, it’s crucial to set your house at the right price to maximize selling potential. Pricing your house too high is actually a detriment to the sale. Work with your trusted real estate professional to determine the best list price for your house.

DM us today to determine the best ways to maximize the sale of your house this year.
