5 Reasons why you should list your home NOW

5 Reasons You Should List Your House TODAY! taken from the The KCM Blog.

People are usually asking about the market and the overall idea, and the reality until recent months is that the buyers have had the upper hand, and many people was able to acquire really good properties for almost nothing. Well, things are changing. The effect of low interest rates keeps bringing more and more buyers into the market, and now the challenge for those wanting to buy before interest rates climb is that inventory of homes for sale is low. reality is right now in Marietta, GA we are in a sellers market and this are 5 reasons why this is a great time to get off the fence and list your home.
1.) Demand Is High
Homes are selling at a pace not seen since 2007. The most recent Existing Home Sales Report by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) showed that annual sales in 2012 increased 9.2% over 2011. There are buyers out there right now and they are serious about purchasing.
2.) Supply Is Low
The monthly supply of houses for sale is at its lowest point (4.4 months) since May of 2005. The current month’s supply is down 21.6% from the same time last year. Historically, inventory increases dramatically in the spring. Selling now when demand is high and supply is low may garner you your best price.
3.) New Construction Is Coming Back
Over the last several years, most homeowners selling their home did not have to compete with a new construction project around the block. As the market is recovering, more and more builders are jumping back in. These ‘shiny’ new homes will again become competition as they are an attractive alternative to many purchasers.
4.) Interest Rates Are Projected to Inch Up
The Mortgage Bankers’ Association has projected mortgage interest rates will inch up approximately one full point in 2013. Whether you are moving up or moving down, your housing expense will be more a year from now if a mortgage is necessary to purchase your next home.
5.) Timelines Will Be Shorter
The dramatic increase in transactions caused many challenges to the process of buying or selling a home in 2012. We waited for inspections, dealt with last minute appraisals and prayed that the bank didn’t ask for ‘just one more piece of paper’ before issuing a commitment on the mortgage. There are fewer transactions this time of year. That means that timetables on each component of the home buying process will be friendlier for those involved in transactions over the next 90 days.

Five reasons why home prices are on the rise

Five reasons why home prices are on the rise by Ana Hodge (Keller Williams Signature Partners) “Your real estate consultant in Cobb county”

If you have been watching the market recently, whether because you want to buy or sell or out of simple curiosity, you have probably noticed that home prices are going up. In a recent article released by the Wall Street Journal five factors have been determined to be perhaps at fault for the increase. These factors are:

1. The rise in housing affordability – low interest rates and home prices are drawing more buyers out into the market.

2. The rise in household formation – “which is expected to hit 1 million new households this year. That is up from an average of 570,000 over the last five years, according to data by Bank of America Merrill Lynch.”

3. The rise in rents – The high number of people for whom rent is the only resource drove rent prices up, therefore more investors want to purchase properties to rent out and more renters to second-guess why they are paying so much in rent when they could buy.

4. The decline in distressed sales and foreclosures – ” which has fallen significantly this past year. While distressed sales are still high by historical standards, they have fallen from their peaks in most markets, helping to alleviate the downward pressure on home prices in many areas.”

5. Inventories of homes for-sale are at their lowest levels in nearly 50 years – “and builders have cut back on construction and many home owners are waiting to sell until they can recover some equity on their properties.”
