Back-to-school

Back-to-School and Real Estate

It’s that time of year again.  Kids are heading back to school and fall is in the air!

How does that relate to real estate?  School districts can play a major role in choosing a home. Recent surveys show that school district boundaries play a major role in choosing a home in 60% of home buyers.

Many buyers are willing to make concessions on what kind of home they would like to buy if it is in the school district that they would like to see their children attend.  Many are willing to pay a little more and settle for less features that they are looking for to be in a better school system.

The best way buyers can find out about local school systems is to do a search of the areas they are interested in and also to find a local realtor who is knowledgeable about their area and the local school districts.  Check out features of the nearby school districts and their report cards.  Talking to other parents is also a great way to learn about a  quality school system for your children to attend.

Does this sound like a great career?  Now is a great time to get your real estate license and be a community expert for your clients.  Get started now and you can be a licensed agent by the holidays.  Visit www.agentrising.com to get started on your online course and live hours. Call 508-997-8844

Two-Day Boot Camp at Agent Rising

Agent Rising Real Estate School held a two-day intensive Boot Camp on August 16th and 17th at the BOLD Welcome Center in Mattapoisett.   It was a great class with about 10 members.

Kate Lanagan MacGregor, co-owner of BOLD Real Estate led the class with some exciting guest speakers.

The day started with a scavenger hunt.  The class was broken up into different groups.  They were sent to different town halls in the area to obtain their scavenger hunt items.  This was a great way to show them the fieldwork that is required when you become a real estate agent.

Attorney Patricia McArdle, co-owner at BOLD Real Estate  was on hand to discuss the legal aspects of a real estate transaction,as well as Jasone Arone of Brick Road Mortgage Company to talk about the financial aspects.

This two-day class is a great way to jump start your real estate career.  You can get your live hours under your belt and finish online.  The class includes all the tools you will need to sit for and pass your real estate exam.

fall

Fall Real Estate Market

We are almost ready to enter the second half of the year! How is the housing market looking and what do the experts have to say about the fall market?

This year so far has been an improvement for home buyers, especially millennials and first-time home buyers.  The rise in housing prices has started to slow and there has been a significant dip in mortgage rates.   The year will continue to be a seller’s market, but buyers may find there is less competition and frantic home searching, and more time to consider their options and take a little time when deciding to put an offer in on a home they love.

Millennials will still continue to be a majority of the buying population.  Inventory may rise slowly but not fast enough to satisfy all.

Experts predict that prices may still rise slowly but mortgage rates should stay low. Without the pressure of rising interest rates, buyers will face less competition and more time to carefully consider their options.

Of course, some areas will be more beneficial to buyers than others, but the frantic pace seems to be slowing down at the present moment.  Good news for every buyer, young or old.

Are you fascinated by the real estate industry? Now is a great time to start your real estate career.  The kids are heading back to school.  Now is the perfect opportunity to think about your career.  You can become a real estate agent by the holidays!  We have all the tools you need to sit for and pass the real estate exam.

Interest Rates Lowered

The Federal Reserve cut interest rates last Wednesday.  This is the first cut in quite awhile and is designed to stave off an economic downturn.

How will this affect the real estate market?  This will probably not affect the typical buyer with a 30-year mortgage.  Their interest rate is already hovering around 4%.  This could help buyers with other types of financing such as adjustable-rate loans and commercial loans.

However, lower rates could help buyers with rising house prices.  With lower interest rates, buyers may be able to purchase more house than they could last year.  Instead of a home in the high $300,000’s, they may be able to afford something in the low $400,00’s.  The increase in purchase power is greater than the recent price increases.  This can be a great advantage to buyers.

Are you interested in the real estate career?  Have you always wanted to be a real estate agent?  Now is the time!  Agent Rising Real Estate School can help you achieve your goals whether online or live hours.  We have all the tools you need to take and pass your real estate exam.

summer

Selling Your Home in the Summer

Summer is a great time to sell a home.  While the market tends to pick up in the spring, summer is also a busy and profitable time to put your home on the market. There are many things you can do to put your home in the best light and sell your home quickly and at a great price.

Spruce up the exterior of the home. Mow the lawn, trim the hedges, water the flowers.  Make sure everything looks fresh and clean.  It’s a great time to show your buyers a great outdoor space.  Consider investing in some outdoor furniture if you don’t already have some.  If you do, make sure it looks clean and fresh.  New cushions can make a big difference.  It’s a great way to show them how they can make use of the outdoor space.

A hot day, try to keep the house cool.  Run the AC and highlight the central air if you have it.  Make sure it’s comfortable but not chilly.  You can also serve fresh lemonade and iced tea with lots of ice or even some fresh fruit or cool dip.  Keep the comfortable feeling fresh.

Price the house right! Make sure your home is competitive.  If you start too high and come down, people will wonder why the home is not selling.  Stay at market value and your home will sell quicker!

Ready to start your real estate career? Or are you a realtor who needs continuing education or looking to up their professionalism and become a broker?  Agent Rising has you covered.  Visit www.agentrising.com and take our online classes or check out our next live bootcamp.
