Fall May Be Best Time for Buyers to Move

Fall May Be Best Time for Buyers to Move

 

Fall May Be Best Time for Buyers to Move

Fall May Be Best Time for Buyers to Move

A slower fall season in home buying may help more lingering home buyers to jump in.

Prices are easing somewhat. For the second month in a row, the median price of an existing home dropped. It reached $253,500 in August, after reaching a record high of $263,300 in June, according to the latest data from the National Association of REALTORS®.

“Median sales prices typically decline a bit heading into the fall,” says Danielle Hale, realtor.com®’s chief economist. “Summer is a big time for home purchases, so that families settle in before school starts in the fall. In the fall, the types of homes that sell are smaller for people without kids. So they tend to be less expensive.”

Existing homes are proving to be a bargain compared to newer homes. The median price of a new home reached $313,700 in July, which is 23.7 percent higher than an existing home.

Home buyers may find attractive mortgage rates this fall. Mortgage rates are still under the 4 percent psychological threshold, which can be a luring incentive for borrowers. Freddie Mac reported last week that the 30-year fixed rate averaged 3.78 percent, holding steady at a 2017 low.

Studies have shown that fall can be the best time to buy. A study conducted by RealtyTrac in 2015 found that October was the best month for home buyers. Purchasers in October paid 2.6 percent below the estimated market value at the time for their home, according to the analysis. In other words, buyers interested in a $300,000 home tend to see a $7,800 discount on it in the fall. Oct. 8 was found to have the best day for bargains too, with an average of 10.8 percent below estimated market value, according to the study.

Home sales in August started to decline heading into the fall season. Sales of existing homes fell 1.7 percent from July to August, but NAR mostly blamed the decrease on the limited number of listings for sale on the market.

Properties are staying on the market for less time, so buyers will need to be ready to act fast. Fifty-one percent of homes sold in August were on the market for less than a month, according to NAR. Properties typically stayed on the market for just 30 days in August.

Housing Shortages Constrain Existing-Home Sales

Housing Shortages Constrain Existing-Home Sales

 

Housing Shortages Constrain Existing-Home Sales

Housing Shortages Constrain Existing-Home Sales

For the fourth time in five months, existing-home sales dropped as a shortage of homes for sale continues to plague the housing market. Strained supply levels of homes are making it that sales are unable “to break out,” according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ latest housing report, released Wednesday.

Existing-home sales did see an increase in the Northeast and Midwest in August but were outpaced by sales declines in the South and West, according to NAR’s report.

 

Total existing-home sales—which include completed transactions for single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and co-ops—eased 1.7 percent in August to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.35 million. Last month’s sales are at the lowest levels in nearly a year.

Nevertheless, demand among potential buyers remains high. However, not enough homeowners are selling, says Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist.

“Steady employment gains, slowly rising incomes, and lower mortgage rates generated sustained buyer interest all summer long, but unfortunately, not more home sales,” Yun says. “What’s ailing the housing market and continues to weigh on overall sales is the inadequate levels of available inventory and the upward pressure it’s putting on prices in several parts of the country.”

The South saw a decline in closings last month that was largely attributed to the after-effects from Hurricane Harvey in the Houston area. Home sales likely will be impacted for the rest of the year in Houston and in the most severely affected areas in Florida after Hurricane Irma. “Nearly all of the lost activity will likely show up in 2018,” Yun says.

The following are some key housing indicators from NAR’s latest report:

  • Home prices: The median existing-home price for all housing types in August was $253,500, up 5.6 percent from a year ago.
  • Inventory: Total housing inventory at the end of August dropped 2.1 percent to 1.88 million existing homes available for sale, and is now 6.5 percent lower than a year ago. Unsold inventory is at a 4.2-month supply at the current sales pace, down from 4.5 months a year ago.
  • Days on the market: Fifty-one percent of homes sold in August were on the market for less than a month. Properties typically stayed on the market for 30 days in August, down from 36 days a year ago.
  • All-cash sales: All-cash transactions comprised 20 percent of transactions in August, down from 22 percent a year ago. Individual investors account for the biggest bulk of cash sales. Investors purchased 15 percent of homes in August, up from 12 percent a year ago.
  • Distressed sales: Foreclosures and short sales accounted for 4 percent of sales in August, slipping from 5 percent a year ago. Broken out, 3 percent of sales in August were foreclosures, and 1 percent were short sales.

Create a Strong Customer Service Culture

Create a Strong Customer Service Culture

 

Create a Strong Customer Service Culture

Create a Strong Customer Service Culture

 

If you want to place customer satisfaction at the heart of your company or team, you need to take the time to train and support agents and to model behavior they expect customers to receive.

Jeff Mowatt, customer service strategist and author, offers these five strategies that can help brokers, managers, and team leaders make this shift.

  1. Practice empathy. When training agents at your office, try to put them in clients’ shoes. Mowatt uses an exercise where he asks sales professionals to create a list of what they expect when they are clients themselves. Also, words matter. For instance, compare a sentence such as, “I’ll have to check my schedule,” with “I’ll be happy to check my schedule for you.”
  2. Be selective about your team. If you have an agent whose negativity is souring your office culture, ask them to leave. Toxic personalities turn off clients and demotivate other agents and staff.
  3. Celebrate good work. When an agent provides stellar service, recognize that person at your next sales meeting. It shows your appreciation and sends a motivating message to others.
  4. Dedicate a meeting to customer service. Mowatt encourages regular customer service team meetings. Hold one each month during your sales meeting where you go over customer service feedback and coaching moments, and brainstorm ways to improve buyers’ and sellers’ experiences.
  5. Reward service stars. In addition to recognition, monetary rewards can go a long way in motivating agents. When an agent goes above and beyond for a client or they receive an excellent customer review, consider providing an added bonus, Mowatt says.

Home Flippers Face Hurdles in Tight Markets

Home Flippers Face Hurdles in Tight Markets

 

Home Flippers Face Hurdles in Tight Markets

Home Flippers Face Hurdles in Tight Markets

In the second quarter of this year, 5.6 percent of all home sales were flips, according to ATTOM Data Solutions’ Q2 2017 U.S. Home Flipping Report. The report defines a flip as a property that is sold for the second time within a 12-month period.

As housing inventory remains low and buyers get more competitive, home flippers are employing a number of strategies to gain an edge and improve their ROI, says Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at ATTOM Data Solutions. “Many flippers are gravitating toward lower-priced areas where discounted purchases are more readily available—often due to foreclosure or some type of distress,” Blomquist says. “Many of these lower-priced areas also have strong rental markets, giving flippers a consistent pipeline of demand from buy-and-hold investors looking for turnkey rentals. In the markets where distressed discounts have largely dried up, flippers are showing more willingness to leverage financing when acquiring properties, often purchasing closer to full market value and then relying more heavily on price appreciation to fuel their flipping profits.”

More than 35 percent of homes flipped in the second quarter were originally purchased by a buyer with financing, the highest level in nearly nine years. The estimated total dollar value of financing for homes flipped in the second quarter was $4.4 billion—also a nearly 10-year high, according to ATTOM Data Solutions’ report. The highest share of home flips purchased with financing in the second quarter were in Colorado Springs, Colo. (68.4%); Denver (56.1%); Boston (53.3%); Providence, R.I. (51.7%); and San Diego (49%).

Meanwhile, one in four home flips nationwide were sold to cash buyers during the second quarter, and 18 percent were sold to FHA buyers, the study shows. Nevada posted the highest home flipping rate in the nation during the second quarter, with 8.4 percent of all home sales being flips. Washington, D.C., followed with 8.2 percent, Maryland at 7.4 percent, Tennessee at 7.3 percent, and Alabama at 7.3 percent.

Tax Reform Proposals Threaten Homeowners

Tax Reform Proposals Threaten Homeowners

 

Tax Reform Proposals Threaten Homeowners

Tax Reform Proposals Threaten Homeowners

REALTORS® took their concerns over tax reform proposals to Capitol Hill on Wednesday, with Iona Harrison, chair of the National Association of REALTORS®’ Federal Taxation Committee, warning the Senate Finance Committee that they limit or nullify the tax incentives for home ownership. Harrison said the proposals would actually raise taxes on millions of middle-class homeowners and reminded senators that a drop in home values following tax reform is a significant risk.

“Real estate is the most widely held category of assets that American families own, and for many Americans, it’s the largest portion of their family’s net worth,” Harrison testified, adding that 64 percent of American households are owner-occupied. “We believe that home ownership is not a special interest, but is rather a common interest.”

Although there is currently no legislation on the table to reform the tax code, concepts have emerged over the past year that would affect home ownership. Changes being considered include the elimination of the federal tax deduction for state and local taxes, a proposal to double the standard deduction—which would effectively nullify the value of the mortgage interest deduction for all but the highest-earning families—and a cap on the amount of mortgage interest that could be deducted.

Some critics of the real estate deductions claim they benefit only a small number of wealthy individuals. But during Harrison’s testimony, she presented some of the following data to show that the deductions are important for a large number of homeowners:

  • 70 percent of the value of real property tax deductions in 2014 went to taxpayers with incomes less than $200,000.
  • 53 percent of individuals claiming the itemized deduction for real estate taxes in 2014 earned less than $100,000.
  • 32.7 million tax filers claimed a deduction for mortgage interest in 2015.
  • Half of taxpayers with mortgages of more than $500,000 have an adjusted gross income of less than $200,000, according to research conducted for NAR.

Harrison also reminded the Senate Financing Committee that tax reform in the past has brought unintended consequences for the economy. In 1986, Congress eliminated or significantly changed several tax provisions, including within real estate, in order to lower rates. But five years later, in 1991, the rates were increased. “Most of the eliminated tax provisions never returned, and in the case of real estate, a major recession followed,” Harrison said.

Though NAR supports tax reform, the association has said any effort must protect home ownership incentives. “Homeowners already pay 83 percent of all federal income taxes, and reform that raises their taxes is a failed effort,” Harrison testified. “NAR supports the goals of simplification and structural improvements for the tax system, and individual tax rates should be as low as possible while still providing for a balanced fiscal policy. We simply believe that to achieve these goals, Congress should commit first to doing no harm to the common interest that home ownership provides.”

Consumers: Appraisals Still Falling Short

Consumers: Appraisals Still Falling Short

Consumers: Appraisals Still Falling Short

Consumers: Appraisals Still Falling Short

Appraisals continue to lag homeowners’ price expectations, according to the latest Quicken Loans’ National Home Price Perception Index, which compares homeowners’ initial estimates and appraiser’s opinions of home values. Appraised values were 1.35 percent lower than homeowners’ expectations in August. That has narrowed from a 1.55 percent difference in July.

Many homeowners are still not understanding their home’s current value, according to the analysis. The perceptions can vary quite a bit across the country, too. For example, home values are 3 percent higher than homeowners’ estimated values in the West, while they are 3 percent lower than expected in the Midwest and Northeast.

“A 3 percent difference may seem small, but depending on the local market, it could make a significant impact on value,” according to Quicken Loans’ study. “For instance, a homeowner in Denver may have upwards of $11,000 in additional equity they can access for home improvements or loan consolidation.”
