5 Reasons to Sell This Fall

5 Reasons to Sell This Fall





Below are 5 compelling reasons listing your home for sale this fall makes sense.


1. Demand Is Strong


The latest Buyer Traffic Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing, and able to purchase…and are in the market right now. 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


Housing inventory is still under the 6-month supply that is needed for a normal market. This means that in the majority of the country, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers.


Historically, a homeowner would stay an average of six years in his or her home. Since 2011, that number has hove ...

What is Important to Boomers when Selling their House?

What is Important to Boomers when Selling their House?





If you are a “baby boomer” (born between 1946 and 1964), you may be thinking about selling your current home. Your children may have finally moved out. Your large, four-bedroom house with three bathrooms no longer fits the bill. Taxes are too high. Utilities are too expensive. Cleaning and repair are too difficult. You may be ready to move into a home that better fits your current lifestyle. Many fellow boomers have already made the move you may be considering.


The National Association of Realtors recently released their 2019 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Report. The report revealed many interesting tidbits about both categories of baby boomers: younger boomers (ages 54 to 63) and older boomers (64 to72). Here are a few of the more interesting topics.


Percentage of Buyers who Looked Online First





All Buyers: 44%






Younger Boomers: 46%






Older Boome ...

2 Things You Need to Know to Properly Price Your Home

2 Things You Need to Know to Properly Price Your Home





In today’s housing market, home prices are increasing at a slower pace (3.7%) than they have over the last eight years (6-7%). However, they are still are above historical norms. Low supply of listed homes and high demand from buyers has pushed prices to rise rapidly.


In the mind of the homeowner, annual home price appreciation over 6% has become the new normal. This becomes a challenge when a homeowner looks to refinance or sell their home, as the expectation of what the homeowner believes the home should be worth does not always line up with the bank’s appraisal.


Every month, the Home Price Perception Index (HPPI) measures the disparity between what a homeowner seeking to refinance their home believes their house is worth and what an appraiser’s evaluation of that same home is.


Over the last five months, the gap between the homeowner’s opinion and the bank’s apprais ...
