How to decide if you should try to time the market for a cheaper price. 

Are you waiting for prices to drop significantly before you buy a house? That is a common mentality nowadays, especially with interest rates as high as they are. No one can say exactly what will happen in the future, but many are hoping that values will crash so they can swoop in and buy properties for low prices. Should you wait to buy a house? Is it worth the risk?

Some industry experts say the fluctuation in prices depends on the needs and goals of the particular area. A J.P. Morgan 2022 analysis of 116 metropolitan areas predicts housing prices to go in three general directions over the next couple of years. Some areas are predicted to drop 20% to 30%, some 10% to…

What will happen now that the moratorium on foreclosures has ended?

 

Are we about to see a tsunami of foreclosures and a struggling market similar to what happened in the real estate market crash of 2008? The short answer is no—foreclosures will start to increase again but not enough to worry over. Today I’ll go into more detail and explain why increasing foreclosures don’t spell doom for the market.


At the beginning of the pandemic, many thought that a housing market crash would surely happen, but it didn’t. In fact, because of the combination of government support, low interest rates, and eager homebuyers, we experienced a housing boom. However, the various foreclosure moratoriums that protected people from financial disruptions during…

Here are two reasons why you’ll want to sell during the fall season.


Sometimes, it pays to go against the crowd. The real estate market is definitely at a peak during the spring and summer. However, going against this trend and listing your home in the fall can have some great benefits. Here are a few reasons why you may want to list in the fall:

 

1. There's less competition. It's no secret that most homes are listed in the spring and summer. However, homes that are not sold by the end of the summer are often delisted. Otherwise, they start to draw less interest because of the time they have spent on the market. That's why if you list in the fall, you have the benefit of standing out, as well as facing less competition than during the…

Three options for people who need to buy a home before selling.

Selling your current home before buying a new one is the conventional way to move. However, depending on your situation, there will be times when buying before you sell is the better option. Whatever your reason, you should know that buying first comes with additional risks, such as paying two mortgages, if your current home takes a long time to sell.

If you’re in a situation where you must buy first before selling, don’t worry. It’s not completely impossible, but it takes some strategic planning to make it happen. Here are three things you can do to help you buy before you sell:

1. Make an offer with a home-sale contingency. By including a home-sale contingency in your…

Why our housing market is slowing and how it affects your home.


Is the real estate market slowing? You may hear about this on the news or from your friends, and many of my clients have asked me this question. With the recent interest rate hikes, everyone wants to know if the market is slowing. In short, yes. The market is slowing, but it might not be slowing as much as you think.

 

We’ve seen a dramatic change in our market recently. Inventory increased significantly in April, according to both Zillow and Realtor.com. The chief economist at Realtor.com notes, “If the trends we’re seeing now hold true, we could potentially see year-over-year inventory growth within the next few weeks.” At the same time, buyer demand also decreased.
