Home Price Appreciation

The housing market has been great. Prices have been going up and there has been an affordability challenge discussed in the media. The home price appreciation has actually slowed somewhat. It looks like we are on track for about 5.6% for 2019. Granted, we are just into it, so that's from the first two months of the year. 

On a positive note, the median price of a house has actually fallen, just under 3%. At the same time mortgage rates have dropped about 3.5%, so we have actually had a little bit of easing in the affordability crunch. Homes have gotten easier to buy for ...

Why You Need A Buyer's Agent: A Tale of Two Buyers

Sarah: She lay awake thinking about the Bungalow on Magnolia Street which had apparently accepted an offer shortly before she called the listing agent to schedule a showing earlier that day. She was so disappointed to miss out on that home. So many of the homes she called about were already sold or had a contract on them. This was in spite of her intricate (albeit time-consuming) process of checking all the real estate websites on an almost minute by minute basis.

Jacob: He had a big smile as he hung up the phone to tell his wife they had the winning offer for the Bungalow on Magnolia. It had been a crazy afternoon starting when their real estate agent texted to tell him about the new listing that had come on the market within the hour. Their agent scheduled a showing immediately and they were able to get an offer in before the end of the day.

Jacob had an agent who has a competitive advantage over unre ...

But, there is a lot more than signing a contract with your kids' soccer coach's wife or the friend of a friend. These agents may be the best to get your home sold, but are you sure? You should enter into a seller's contract with both enthusiasm and confidence!

Your home may be your most valuable physical financial asset; don't trust the process of selling your home to without thoroughly discussing the process and reviewing your options. Hiring a real estate agent is a huge decision. You should search for real estate professionals, choose 3-5 of those, and then interview each to find the best fit for your real estate transaction expectations.

This is your opportunity to be the "boss," so create an agent interview strategy and execute it thoughtfully. Your objective is to hire the right person for the job, and that job is selling your home at the best possi ...
