6 Reasons to Celebrate National Homeownership Month

Our homes are so much more than the houses we live in. For many, they’ve also become our workplaces, schools for our children, and safe harbors in which we’ve weathered the toughest moments of a global pandemic. Today, 65.6% of Americans call their homes their own, a rate that has risen to its highest point in 8 years.

As National Homeownership Month kicks off this June, homeowners have every reason to celebrate. A survey by Gallup just ranked real estate as the best investment you can make for the eighth year in a row. However, unlike other investment options, the benefits of owning a home aren’t purely financial. Here are the top ways Americans are winning by owning a home.

What’s Motivating People To Move Right Now?

This year, Americans are moving for a variety of reasons. The health crisis has truly reshaped our lifestyles and our needs. Spending so much more time in our current homes has driven many people to reconsider what homeownership means and what they find most valuable in their living spaces. With a new perspective on homeownership, here are some of the reasons people are reconsidering where they live and making moves right now.

>>Working from Home

Remote work became the new norm, and for some, it’s persisting longer than initially expected. Many in the workforce today are discovering they don’t need to live so close to the office anymore and they can get more for their money if they move a little further outside the city limits.

People fleeing the big cities for smaller cities due to remote work and the idea of having a home of their own. If you are ready to pursue the American Dream of Homeownership, reach out to David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville at 502-489-1135


Dreaming of a Bigger Home? Why Not Buy It This Year?

Are you clamoring for extra rooms or a more functional floorplan in your house? Maybe it’s time to make a move. With so few homes available for sale and high demand from today’s homebuyers, sellers are profiting in major ways this season. Bidding wars are gaining traction, driving up the sale price of more and more homes throughout the country. This means sellers are able to leverage extra cash from higher-priced sales while also taking advantage of today’s low mortgage rates when they purchase their next home. It’s the perfect scenario to move up into a true dream home.

So, if you are ready to sell your home and use that profit for your next luxury home David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville is here to help you chase the American Dream of Homeownership 502-489-1135!

Today is a great day to buy a home, low interest rates are making it advantageous to buy, however the word to remember most of all is patience...

Some buyer's are making 5 or more offers before they receive an accepted offer, patience is key, stay patient and your Dream Home will appear and you won't break the bank to own it!

Looking to Buy a Brand New Home? I would love to set up an appointment with my favorite builder for you! Why spend the money on an older home, with its issues, and its problems when you could buy a brand new, customizable home, and receive a 1 year home warranty, a 7 year structural warranty, and the peace of mind, knowing that when you sell that home, it is a 2020 built home! Give me a Call Today: 502-489-1135

 

This week the Mortgage Interest Rates as published by Freddie Mac fell to 2.99%, up 0.04 percentage points from last week’s 2.95%, they are closing in on last year’s 3.18%. 2.65% is the lowest ever seen since recording started back in 1971 and was obtained the first week of January 2021.

 

This week in the Louisville and Lexington Kentucky area there were 3,273 (+22) homes & condos for sale, with the average days on market sitting at 26.10 (-3.70 Days). We are now at 1.04 (+0.09 Months) months of inventory, making this a “Seller’s Market” which is under the six months needed to have a “Balanced Market”. Builder’s are accelerating their building of brand new homes, but with lumber prices on the rise, it is making it harder for smaller builder’s to be able to afford. Bigger builder’s will have to come to the rescue, if we are ever to catch up with home buyer demand.

 

The Average Sale Price for April 2021 was $257,630 (Up $3,464 from March 2021), with Median Selling Price being $223,500 (Up $8,500 from March 2021). These numbers are up from last year’s $235,494 and $200,000 respectively. Year over year both average sale price and median selling price were up vs. last year.

 

If you are in need of a Real Estate Professional someone with the heart of a teacher, rather than a heart of a salesperson I’m the Realtor for you!

 

If you ever have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me, I’d love to hear from you and hear about your plans for the future!
