4 Tips to Maximize the Sale of Your House

Homeowners ready to make a move are definitely in a great position to sell today. Despite the speed and opportunity for sellers, there are still steps you can take to prep your house to shine so you get the greatest possible return.

>>Make Buyers Feel at Home

One of the ways to make this happen is to take time to declutter. The more neutral and tidy the space, the easier it is for a buyer to picture themselves living there. According to NAR, “82% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.”

>>Keep It Clean

On top of making an effort to declutter, it’s important to keep your house neat and clean. Before a buyer stops by, be sure to pick up toys, make the beds, and wash the dishes. This is one more way to reduce the number of things that can distract…

Homes are flying off the market in today’s housing market, however, buyer’s are being cautious and careful on what they spend on homes as well. If for instance the curb appeal doesn’t look good, a home buyer may skip viewing a home at all. A home seller must ensure that their home looks comfortable and cozy for every buyer that walks through the front door. If you are ready to sell your house, let’s get it on the market today, so we can maximize your sale price, and get you into a new home as well with lower interest rates!

Will the Housing Market Maintain Its Momentum?

Last week’s Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows sales have dropped by 3.7% compared to the month before. This is the second consecutive month that sales have slumped. Some see this as evidence that the red-hot real estate market may be cooling. However, there could also be a simple explanation as to why existing home sales have slowed – there aren’t enough homes to buy. There are currently 410,000 fewer single-family homes available for sale than there were at this time last year.

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR, explains in the report, "The sales for March would have been measurably higher, had there been more inventory. Days-on-market are swift, multiple offers are prevalent, and buyer confidence is rising."

The housing market is commanded by Supply and Demand, just like the rest of our economic system. Today, we have very low supply, and very high demand. This is in-turn making prices of homes rise. If we get to a point where there is no supply or too little supply, then demand may also slow down, which will in-turn cause prices to fall as well. We do not find ourselves in a bubble per-se we find ourselves way behind in the number of homes available for sale for the number of home buyer’s we have in the market today. The remedy: More Homes for Sale, as typically occurs in the Summertime, and less homebuyer demand, however the second part demand may not be slowing down until those buyer’s are prices out of the market, which is not occurring today because of low interest rates. The Housing Market is a complicated thing, do you really want to buy or sell a home without someone to guide you though it?

Patience Is the Key to Buying a Home This Year

The question many homebuyers are facing this year is, “Why is it so hard to find a house?” We’re in the ultimate sellers’ market, which means real estate is ultra-competitive for buyers right now. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) notes homes are getting an average of 4.8 offers per sale, and that number keeps rising. Why? It’s because there are so few houses for sale.

While many homeowners paused their plans to sell during the height of the pandemic, this isn’t the main cause of today’s huge gap between supply and demand. Sam Khater, Vice President and Chief Economist at Freddie Mac, Economic Housing and Research Division, shares, “The main driver of the housing shortfall has been the long-term decline in the construction of single-family homes . . .

Patience is very important, especially in today’s market. In today’s market the asking price is similar to a reserve price, the final purchase price is likely going to be more than that. Homeowners are also getting multiple offers on their homes, with different released contingencies, this is creating bidding wars and causing even more drama in the housing market. You can find a home, and with David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville’s help, you will find your Dream Home, but patience really is key in today’s market give David Hittle a call and experience the patience of an agent that understands the market and will help guide you through the storm 502-489-1135.


 

Survey: Buyers Want Sense of Community, Nice Neighbors

A new survey finds that Homebuyer's are longing for a sense of community and nice neighbors, after many of us have become isolated and separated from others during the pandemic.

Homebuyer's also value safety, higher square footage, and more outdoor space, all this makes since after a year and now more of pandemic scares and restrictions.

Are you thinking about becoming a homeowner? Now is a great time because of the low interest rates. Home values are only increasing, so waiting will wind up costing you down the road in price and in lost equity. Grab these low interest rates, and let's find you your Dream Home today!

As a home seller, your job is to make a potential home buyer feel at home when they visit your home. If you know that your community is full of happy people, or the neighborhood hosts events and get-togethers, these are key items that homebuyer’s are looking for today, and you should certainly disclose those to all potential homebuyer’s. A sense of community and nice neighbors, the sounds like a wonderful place to me! If you are looking to sell your house, or you are looking for a new home give David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville a call, he is nice and would make a great neighbor 502-489-1135!


 

Is Home Price Appreciation Accelerating Again?

At the beginning of the year, industry forecasts called for home price appreciation to slow to about half of the double-digit increase we saw last year. The thinking was that inventory would increase from record-low levels and put an end to the bidding wars that have driven home prices up over the past twelve months. However, that increase in inventory has yet to materialize. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reports that there are currently 410,000 fewer single-family homes available for sale than there were at this time last year.

This has forced those who made appreciation forecasts this past January to amend those projections. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the National Association of Realtors, and Zelman & Associates have all adjusted their numbers upward after reviewing first quarter results.

Home prices are on the rise, and it is because of supply and demand for homes. Today there are almost 500,000 less homes on the market than there were this time last year, and at this time last year we were right in the throws of a global pandemic!! So while the pandemic is starting to be tamed by vaccines, homeowners are still shy about selling their homes, which is causing more strain to the housing market, and more competition amongst homebuyers. We need more homes on the market in order to meet home buyer demand. If you have given thoughts to selling your house, David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville would like to help make your sale a reality, and to help find you your next dream home 502-489-1135, is the number to call to get David’s help in this turbulent market!

Message from David Hittle, Realtor United Real Estate Louisville:

For another week Homebuyer’s can take advantage of record low mortgage interest rates on their next home. Mortgage rates held under 3% again this week meaning that Homebuyer’s will pay less in interest over the lifetime of their mortgage. It is also good news for Homeseller’s because it may allow more buyer’s to see their homes, meaning more offers and more bidding wars, both things good for homeseller’s.

This Week was also Derby day, I hope everyone had a great Derby and that it brings us all hopes of being nearer to each other once again, after this crazy pandemic comes to an end. I hope everyone won big money on the horses!
