This week is called the ‘Black Friday’ of housing

 

Interesting article from Fox Business based on a study by Realtor.com. I don’t always believe all the articles that come out, but this one is true in our local market. Now is a good time of year for buyers to take advantage of purchasing a home. Take a look at the article, it really does make sense and with the low mortgage rates still being around, now is a better time than ever to buy:

This week is called the ‘Black Friday’ of housing

By Ann Schmidt Published September 25, 2019 Real Estate FOX Business

 If you’re looking to buy a home, now is the time, according to one report.

The week of Sept. 22, is the best week to buy a home in 41 of 53 markets in the U.S., Realtor.com said in a prepared statement.

This week, compared to the average week during the year, potential homebuyers see less competition by about 26 percent, with about 6.1% more homes on the market, according to Realtor.com.

After analyzing data from 2016 to 2018, Realtor.com found that there also tends to be a 2.4 percent price reduction on about 6% of homes on the market, which makes this the “Black Friday” for homebuyers, according to the report.

“As summer winds down and kids return to school, many families hit pause on their home search and wait until the next season to start again,” Realtor.com Senior Economist George Ratiu said in a prepared statement. “With dramatically less competition, persistent buyers will feel the scales tip in their favor as eager sellers begin to cut their prices in an effort to entice a sale.”

“As seasonal inventory builds up and restores itself to more buyer-friendly levels, fall buyers will be in a better position to take advantage of today’s low mortgage rates and increased purchasing power,” Ratiu said.

Realtor.com found that regionally, homebuyers in the West have some of the best circumstances, with a 29.6 percent decrease in competition, a 4.2 percent price reduction on homes compared to their peak weeks and about 8.6 percent of homes seeing a price reduction.

Location, Location, Location!

With all the new innovations out there, there are so many ways to market your home. Whether it’s the more classic route or online, I try and get the best of both worlds. When it comes to getting your home out there, I’m always looking for the best avenues for maximum exposure as well as targeted marketing. With this in mind, I decided to try something new for some of my listings.
The area around these homes is really something that makes them special, so I jumped at the chance to have some drone videography taken. I thought that this would be a perfect way to not only highlight the home itself, but also the beautiful surrounding areas. For the home at 5181 Monteverde Drive, the rolling hills, scenic walking trails and praised Catta Verdera golf course, not to mention the breathtaking sunsets are major reasons why this is such a gorgeous and desirable area to live. At 2200 South Lakewood Drive, the peaceful and serene setting, nestled among the pine and oak trees makes for the perfect hideaway near the lake in Meadow Vista.
