Ways to Make Your Listing Look Bigger

Ways to Make Your Listing Look Bigger

 

Ways to Make Your Listing Look Bigger

Ways to Make Your Listing Look Bigger

Décor choices can have a big impact on how large or small a home appears. Professional home stagers chime in with some tips on how to show off square footage, even when space is tight.

  1. Remove heavy drapes. Leave windows bare or hang sheer linen curtains. The space will feel brighter, and “you’ll extend the view to the outdoors, which will automatically make your space feel larger,” home staging expert Lori Matzke told realtor.com®.
  2. Go monochrome. Painting ever single room in the same color can help lengthen a smaller space. It “prevents your space from feeling choppy and gives it more of a continuous feel,” Matzke says. Furnishings and accessories should also be monochrome. Reduce contrasting colors whenever possible, says Justin M. Riordan, founder of Portland, Ore., and Seattle-based Spade and Archer Design Agency. “If you have a room with taupe walls, walnut floors, a brown sofa, and milk-chocolate pillows—all various names for medium brown—the edges of each item will be less defined and, in turn, be perceived as taking up less space,” Riordan says.
  3. Remove rugs. “The more you break up the flow of your flooring, the smaller your space will feel,” Matzke says. Limit rugs to only one or two main areas, such as under the dining table. Also, small rugs can dwarf a space, so when you do use them, make sure they aren’t too tiny.
  4. Add mirrors to rooms. Mirrors can help make a small room appear larger by reflecting more natural light, Bee Heinemann, marketing director and interior decorating expert at Vänt Wall Panels told realtor.com®. Consider placing a mirror next to or directly across from a window to add more depth to the room.
  5. Raise the bar (in the bathroom). Place shower curtains and window treatments higher up on the wall. “Hang it as high as you can,” Heinemann says. “Doing so gives the illusion of higher ceilings and greater space.”

Housing Predictions for 2018

Housing Predictions for 2018

Housing Predictions for 2018

Housing Predictions for 2018

New homes are expected to be a “primary driver of sales in 2018,” as 1.33 million housing starts are predicted next year—up from 1.22 million in 2017, according to Freddie Mac’s September Outlook report, which gauges future real estate activity. Total home sales are expected to increase about 2 percent from 2017 to 2018, according to the report.

Economists also predict that the uptick in housing starts, coupled with a moderate increase in mortgage rates, will help slow the run-up in home prices next year. Freddie Mac forecasts a 4.9 percent increase in home prices in 2018, lower than the 6.3 percent growth seen so far this year. Mortgage rates also are up from near-record lows in 2016, prompting predictions that refinancings will fall to 25 percent of mortgage activity in 2018—the lowest share since 1990, according to Fannie Mae.

Still, homeowners likely will continue building equity next year. In the second quarter of 2017, the dollar volume of equity cashed out was $15 million, up $1.2 million from the first quarter. As home prices rise, cash-out activity has been rising, too.

“The economic environment remains favorable for housing and mortgage markets,” says Freddie Mac chief economist Sean Becketti. “For several years, we have had moderate economic growth of about two percent a year, solid job gains, and low mortgage interest rates. We forecast those conditions to persist into next year.”

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.
