Americans Find the Nonfinancial Benefits of Homeownership Most Valuable

Recently, two national surveys revealed the reasons homeownership is such an important part of life. The top three personal benefits of homeownership noted by respondents in Unison’s 2021 report on The State of the American Homeowner are:

>>91% - feel secure, stable, or successful owning a home

>>70% - feel emotionally attached to the homes that have kept them safe over the past year

>>51% - call homeownership a "key part of their life”

These sentiments were supported by the most recent National Housing Survey from Fannie Mae. Those surveyed were given a list of feelings and accomplishments that are associated with or impacted by where we live. They were then asked, “To achieve this, are you better off owning or better off renting?”

4 Big Incentives for Homeowners to Sell Now

Here are the four major homeowner concerns and a quick explanation of what’s actually happening in the housing market today.

>>Homeowners don’t know if they’ll be able to secure their next home before selling.

In today’s market, buyers have compelling reasons to purchase a home now. These buyer needs give the seller tremendous leverage to negotiate time to find their next home.

>>Homeowners don’t know if their current home will sell for asking price or top market price.

This is the perfect time to maximize profits while selling a house. NAR just released a study showing that bidding wars are at an all-time high. When there’s a bidding war, the price escalates. If a seller is looking for a top-dollar sale, there’s no better time to sell than right now.

>>Homeowners don’t know if they will get an offer...

There are a lot of incentives for homeowner’s today, to sell their homes an upgrade or downsize into new homes. The values of homes just in the Louisville market increased 9% year over year, and are set to continue to rise. Mortgage interest rates have remained near all time lows, as the market tries to stabilize with new construction homes and new listings. All of this combined is making it a great time to get maximum value for your home, and low interest on your next. But you must be ready to make that journey, and when you are ready, you should speak with David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville 502-489-1135

Soaring Lumber Prices Add $36K to Average New-Home Price

Someone once said "change is inevitable," and change has occurred in the Housing Market yet again.

Last Year you could have found brand new construction homes at very competitive prices with existing homes. However, today due to Lumber Prices, the main ingredient in every home, brand new construction home prices have soared!

To give you an example, my favorite builder could have built you a brand new 3 bedroom ranch style home for about $190,000. Today that same exact home built brand new for you would cost over $240,000.

Change is inevitable, and it will continue to occur, we must interrupt it like the "butterfly effect" and get while the getting is good!

Are Interest Rates Expected to Rise Over the Next Year?

So far this year, mortgage rates continue to hover around 3%, encouraging many hopeful homebuyers to enter the housing market. However, there’s a good chance rates will increase later this year and going into 2022, ultimately making it more expensive to borrow money for a home loan. Here’s a look at what several experts have to say.

Danielle Hale, Chief Economist, realtor.com: “Our long-term view for mortgage rates in 2021 is higher. As the economic outlook strengthens, thanks to progress against coronavirus and vaccines plus a dose of stimulus from the government, this pushes up expectations for economic growth . . . .”

Mortgage Interest Rates, are rising and falling, but today they are staying near the lows. 3.3% is the predicted average for interest rates this year, but they have been hovering around those 3% rates for awhile. 3% interest rates is an amazing rate and should be taken advantage of if you are ready to make your moves! When you are ready call David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville 502-489-1135!

Why Waiting to Buy a Home Could Cost You a Small Fortune

Many people are sitting on the fence trying to decide if now’s the time to buy a home. To determine if they should buy now or wait another year, they both need to ask two simple questions:

>>Do I think home values will be higher a year from now?

>>Do I think mortgage rates will be higher a year from now?

Let’s shed some light on the answers to these questions.

If you average the most recent projections from the major industry forecasters, the expectation is home prices will increase by 7.7%. For mortgage rates, the forecasts average out to 3.6% a year from now, a jump up from where they are now.

A buyer will pay a lot more in mortgage payments each month if both of these variables increase.

Home prices are continuing to rise, new construction homes have increased $36,000 on average just due to the increase in lumber prices. That increase doesn’t even account for the increases due to supply and demand that are also taking a toll on the builder’s ability to build homes fast enough to keep up with buyer demand. So all homes are on the rise in price and value because of the supply and demand, now is the time to make your moves because waiting will only cost you more money. When you are ready to buy a home?

‘This Isn’t a Bubble’

The experts are indicating that we are not in a Real Estate Bubble similiar to what we saw in 2006.

Experts as well as myself, are pointing to supply and demand as the culprit for higher prices and values, here's what I see:

Normally as the weather heats up home listings (inventory/supply) in our area starts to increase. Typically we would start seeing between 3000 and 5000 listings on the market during the summer months. As of last week we had a little over 1000 listings on the market.

This supply (inventory) combined with the extreme homebuyer demand, driven by low mortgage rates, buyer's fleeing congested big cities, and homeowners looking to sell and move up or downsize are all causing a Supply and Demand problem.

As we learned in school:

Low Supply + High Demand = Increase Prices/Value

High Supply + Low Demand = Decrease Pricss/Value

Today we are seeing low supply and high demand, and that doesn't appear to be changing anytime in the near future, but it is not a bubble it's just the economy.

People fear another housing bubble, however, the experts are all saying that this is not a housing bubble. The issue today is Supply and Demand not a Housing Bubble! If you are looking to buy or sell a home, don’t fear a bubble, because it is not a bubble, it’s all about supply and demand give David Hittle a Call today 502-489-1135!

They say that April Showers, Bring May Flowers but April Showers also bring Home Buyer's.

As inventory levels increase as the weather warms up, more home buyer's are going to be looking for homes.

Will they be looking at your home? Not if it is not on the market...
