Spring Housing Market

What’s going on in the Spring Market for first time home buyers?  Home price increases are slowing down and home prices are expected to rise only 2% in the next 12 months.

While inventory is growing, the bad news is the rising inventory is with higher priced luxury homes which have been slow to sell.  Inventory of lower priced homes- $250,000 and under is still slow to rise.  Many first-time home buyers have been priced out of the market.

There is some good news.  Interest rates have dipped and many buyers are getting out of the rental market and looking to buy.  The lower interest rates can make a difference in their buying power.

Interest rates are low, unemployment is low and there has been an increase in wage growth.   This is making many first-time home buyers take a chance at getting back into the buying market.  They may find that the market is less competitive than in the past.  There is still a trend to find the “perfect house” rather than one that is “good enough.”

Many lenders are trying to make it easier for buyers to become prequalified and be ready when the “perfect house” comes along.  With all the new technology, this makes it easier than ever for buyers.

Mortgage Rates Drop

What is going on with mortgage rates?  Mortgage rates have dropped recently to as low as 4.06% and some lucky home buyers were able to lock in 3.99% recently.  This will jump-start the spring market even though many are predicting a recession is coming soon.

Many buyers that were priced out of the market when mortgage rates rose may now be able to get back into the market with the recent drop in rates.  This is also great for private mortgage companies who may have seen a decline in customers with the higher interest rates.

Lower mortgage rates also mean more people refinancing trying to lock in a lower rate.

With a rise in house prices, a lower mortgage rate can be a game-changer for many buyers and get them back into the housing market.

Fun Real Estate Facts

Real estate is a great business.  It can be exhilarating and exasperating all at the same time.  Here are some fun facts you may not have known.

Why are so many doorknobs made of brass? Brass doorknobs can actually disinfect themselves and kill bacteria.  Other metals which have the same qualities include iron, copper and aluminum.  You can skip the hand sanitizer!

What’s the best day to list a home? While Sundays get a lot of reviews, surprisingly Thursdays and Fridays are the best days.  These houses have more property tours and sell quicker and at  a higher price.  Might be worth knowing when putting on a new listing.

In the USA, people typically burn their mortgage papers when they finally pay off their mortgage.  In Scotland, it is traditional to paint their front door red once they pay off their mortgage.

What are the best words to use when listing a house?  We always think of cozy and homey as great terms to use but if you want your house to sell faster and for a higher price, use the words gorgeous and beautiful instead.

Just a few thoughts to brighten up your day! Are you ready to make real estate your career?  Agent Rising Real Estate School has what you need with online courses as well as brick and mortar classes.  We even offer intensive two-day boot camps!

The real estate market is hopping! Change is in the air! With all the new technology available to buyers and sellers, do they still need a real estate agent?  The answer is an emphatic yes!  Although buyers can find houses online, they still need a seasoned agent to walk them through the buying process.  They can help them find a lender and get through the pre-approval process as well as the whole buying process including negotiating a good price.

On the seller side, realtors are important to get the house out there and noticed! They can guide sellers on market value and how to position their home to sell at or above market value in a short amount of time. It’s not uncommon to have a bidding war and a seasoned agent can help navigate through the whole confusing and stress-ridden process.

Sounds like a great job! Agent Rising Real Estate School is there to help you obtain your hours and pass your real estate exam.  Whether you are looking for online courses, traditional classroom hours or a concentrated two-day event, Agent Rising has you covered.
