WHERE DID ALL THE HOUSES DISAPPEAR?
The supply of homes for sale is at a historic low. Buyer demand is surprisingly strong. Now would be a great time to sell.

Now is a great time to consider putting your home on the market. The competition (number of houses on the market) has not been this low in decades. It’s best not to wait for the inventory (both existing homes and new construction) to increase in the spring, as it always does.

BUYING A HOME EARLY CAN SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE WEALTH -
According to a Freddie Mac survey,

“The dream of homeownership is alive and well within “Generation Z,” the demographic cohort following Millennials.

Our survey…finds that Gen Z views homeownership as an important goal. They estimate that they will attain this goal by the time they turn 30 years old, three years younger than the current median homebuying age (33).”

Buying a Home Early Can Significantly Increase Future Wealth

THERE’S A LONG LINE OF BUYERS WAITING ...
Senior Economist George Ratiu recently noted,

“Sellers tend to be more reluctant to list during the colder time of year when the market typically makes a seasonal slowdown.

However, a recent report by ShowingTime reveals how this year is different. Buyer activity is way up compared to the same time last year. The report explains,

“The nation’s 12.6% growth in home showings compared to 2018 was the most significant jump in buyer traffic during the current four-month streak of year-over-year increases.

The increase has spread across all four regions of the country.

NAR recently released their 2019 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers showing that,
“This year, home sellers cited that they sold their homes for a median of $60,000 more than they purchased it, up from $55,500 the year prior. This accounted for a 31 percent price gain, up from 29 percent the year before.”

It’s National Roof Over Your Head Day” on December 3rd!

“Cost-burdened renters now outnumber cost-burdened homeowners by more than 3.0 million. In addition, renters make up 10.8 million of the 18.2 million severely burdened households that pay more than half their incomes for housing.”
Homeownership drives many benefits, including providing families with a place to feel secure. It also helps promote confidence that they are investing proactively in themselves and their communities. That is why there are 77.7 million owner-occupied housing units in the United States.

5 RESONS TO SELL THIS WINTER-
1. DEMAND IS STRONG. More often than not, in many areas of the country, multiple buyers are competing with each other to buy the same home.Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.
2. THERE IS LESS COMPETITION NOW
3. There is a pent-up desire for many homeowners to move as they were unable to sell over the last few years due to a negative equity situation. As home values continue to appreciate, more and more homeowners will be given the freedom to move. Don’t wait until additional inventory comes to market before you decide to sell.
4. BUYERS ARE MORE SERIOUS AT THIS TIME OF YEAR- In the winter, buyers who are seeking a home – whether for relocation or otherwise – are serious ones. They’re ready to make offers and they’re eager to move, often quickly. Your house may be exactly what they’re looking for, so listing when other potential sellers are holding off may be your best opportunity to shine.
5. THERE WILL NEVER BE A BETTER TIME TO MOVE UP. Demand for your entry-level home is high, as is inventory in the luxury or premium market. IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE - Look at the reason you decided to sell in the first place and determine whether it’s worth waiting. Is money more important than being with family? Are you ready to go on with your life the way you think you should?

NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME TO REVIEW YOUR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE POLICY- It's a good idea to annually compare the limits in your policy and assess the value of your possessions. If you make any major purchases or additions to your home throughout the year, make sure they are reflected in your policy.

The following are some tips that may reduce your homeowners' insurance costs. Just keep in mind that insurance companies vary and these suggestions may not apply to your policy. For specific details, contact your insurance agent.

Increase your deductible. If your deductible is $250, increase it to $500. Doing so may cut your premiums. You'll have to pay more if you make a claim, but you're likely to save money through time with lower premiums.

Secure your home. By installing a burglar alarm, deadbolt locks and smoke detectors, you may save up to five percent per security measure. Some insurance companies offer up to a 15-percent discount if you have a central alarm system that's wired directly to a monitoring facility or police department.

Consolidate. Buy your home and auto insurance from the same company. Some companies offer discounts between five percent and 20 percent if you purchase more than one policy from them.

Renovate. Depending on your insurance company, certain home improvements may qualify you for a policy discount. Updating such systems as plumbing and electrical are examples. Be sure to check with your insurer, however, before making costly renovations.

You may also be able to save on your other insurance needs. It's a good idea to annually review all of your insurance policies, especially if you have changed major aspects of your life within the past year, like receiving a promotion, getting married, buying a car or remodeling your house. As your life changes, so do your insurance needs and a few minutes of your time could save you hundreds of dollars.

THE COST ACROSS TIME -
With interest rates around 3.66%, now is a great time to look back at where they’ve been over the past few decades. Comparatively, they’re pretty low!
According to Freddie Mac, rates are projected to increase to 3.9% by this time next year.
The impact your interest rate has on your monthly mortgage payment is significant. An increase of just $20 dollars in your monthly payment can add up to $240 per year and $7,200 over the life of your loan.
Maybe it’s time to lock in now, while rates are still historically low.

4 REASONS TO BUY A HOME THIS FALL INSTEAD OF WAITING:1. PRICES WILL CONTINUE TO RISE- The Waiting no longer makes sense....
11/06/2019

4 REASONS TO BUY A HOME THIS FALL INSTEAD OF WAITING:

1. PRICES WILL CONTINUE TO RISE- The Waiting no longer makes sense.

2. MORTGAGE INTEREST RATES ARE PROJECTED TO RISE - An increase in rates will impact your monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, your housing expense will increase if a mortgage is needed to buy your next home.

3. ARE YOU READY TO PUT YOUR HOUSING COSTS TO WORK FOR YOU - Either way, you are paying a mortgage! As an owner, your mortgage payment is a form of ‘forced savings’ that allows you to have equity in your home you can tap into later in life. As a renter, you guarantee your landlord is the person with that equity.

4. IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE The ‘cost’ of a home is determined by two major components: the price of the home and the current mortgage rate. It appears both are on the rise. Look at the actual reason you’re buying and decide if it is worth waiting. Whether you want to have a great place for your children to grow up, you want your family to be safer, or you just want to have control over custom renovations, maybe now is the time to buy.

Buying a home sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings. Reach out to Paddy Murphy and Nicole Murphy
to determine if homeownership is the right choice for you and your family this fall.

3 SIGNS THE HOUSING MARKET IS ON THE REBOUND -
The residential real estate market has been plodding along for most of the year. However, three recent reports show the market may be on the verge of a rebound:
1. Existing Home Sales (closed sales) are up, marking two consecutive months of growth.
2. Pending Home Sales (contracts signed) are up with each of the four major regions reporting both month-over-month growth and year-over-year gains in contract activity.
3. Buyer Traffic (the number of people shopping for a home) is up compared to the same time last year, and for the first time in 13 months.
If you are thinking about selling your house, there are purchasers out there who are ready, willing, and able to buy.
