Agent Rising Real Estate School Held Two-Day Class!

Are you upside down?  Are you ready to get out from under and start a new career?  Agent Rising Real Estate School is here to help.  Agent Rising recently held a two-day intensive class on Friday, March 8th and Saturday, March 9th!  It was way too much fun to be work!

There was a great turnout and Kate Lanagan MacGregor, instructor, and broker owner of BOLD Moves Real Estate kept it lively and fun!  Elise Bare of RMS, Residential Mortgage Services was on hand to bring in the mortgage and financing aspect of the real estate transaction.  She has years of experience with all kinds of loans, including FHA, Mass Housing, VA, and conventional, to name a few and was able to share her knowledge with the class.

It was a great opportunity to accumulate the hours needed to take the real estate exam in a short amount of time.  We also offer online courses and webinars if staying at home and earning your hours that way is your preference.

Either way, Agent Rising Real Estate School has you covered.  It’s a great time to get into the real estate industry and see all it has to offer.

real estate trends

Real Estate Trends for 2019

What is 2019 going to bring for real estate?  Here are some predicted trends for 2019.

Mortgage rates climbed steadily last year.  The low 3.5% mortgage is a thing of the past right now.  They will continue to creep up this year and may plateau close to 6% this year.  What does this mean for buyers?  Buying a home may be harder.  Some homes may be simply out of their reach with the higher interest rates and rising house prices.  They may also be stuck at a lower price point.

Inventory is expected to rise so some degree. This may help some buyers looking for homes.  Higher end luxury homes going on the market are expected to have an increase.

Sellers are still expected to do pretty well with rising home prices.

Millenials are still expected to represent the largest group of buyers.  They are getting older so they may already be moving on to their second home.  They may be looking for more room or a better location but may still carry student debt which will make them careful with finances.

As real estate agents, this can help shape your year and your focus.  Are you going to jump into the luxury home market or help millenials find a new home?  It’s a great time to look at your marketing and see who your target client will be.

Projections show real estate careers will rise this year. As the housing market continues to recover, there will be a need for real estate agents.

Real estate agents were ranked as one of the happier professions.  You are making a difference in people’s lives and helping them realize their dream of owning a home.  It is very rewarding.

Pending Sales in Real Estate Up in November

According to the Massachusetts Association of Realtors Facebook page

 December 12, 2018

The number of single-family homes put under agreement in the month of November rose two percent over the last year, marking full year of year-over-year increases. However, condominium pending sales for the month fell from this time last year. From November 2017, the median price for pending single-family homes and condominiums saw over a four percent hike to $397,000 and a one percent hike to $375,000, respectively. 

“Thanksgiving preparations and Black Friday shopping didn’t stop home buyers from finding time in November to make offers on single-family homes,” said 2018 MAR President Rita Coffey, general manager of CENTURY 21 Tullish & Clancy in Weymouth. “Even though prices are ticking closer to the $400,000 mark, with pending sales being up for the past 12 months, home buyers are showing us that the demand is still there.”
