RE/MAX National Housing Report for September 2018

by Elite Asset Management Team

Home Sales Tumble 12% as Prices Remain at Record Levels

 

DENVER – The RE/MAX National Housing Report for September 2018 showed the trends of fewer closings and stabilizing inventory continued through September, punctuated by a surprisingly big 11.6% year-over-year drop in home sales. At the same time, the RE/MAX National Housing Report for September 2018 posted a Median Sales Price of $241,000 that marked the 30th consecutive month of year-over-year price increases. It is the highest September price in the 10-year history of the report.
 
The decline in home sales year-over-year was the largest since May of 2011, as September became the seventh month of 2018 to record lower sales than 2017. Even so, year-to-date 2018 home sales resemble 2017’s.
 
“The big drop in September closings catches your attention. The market is clearly rebalancing as buyers and sellers continue to process the increasing interest rate environment and what that means to them,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “The slower drop in inventory – a visible trend for nearly half a year – further illustrates the ongoing shift toward market equilibrium, and that’s healthy in the long-term.”
 

Active inventory dropped for the 119th consecutive month, the decline of 4.7% from September 2017 was the smallest year-over-year decrease since August 2014. In addition, the September year-over-year inventory drop was the fifth consecutive month in 2018 to post single-digit percent declines rather than the double-digit monthly drops consistently seen over the previous three years.
 
“It’s a little surprising to see prices staying so strong, but it’s hardly shocking in such a tight market,” said Contos. “The headwinds of rising prices and interest rates amid already tight inventory levels have been crimping affordability and slowing sales for most of the year, but it varies by geography.  In circumstances like these, where the market is tricky to navigate, both buyers and sellers can benefit by aligning themselves with a professional agent – a local expert who can cut through the noise and advocate on their behalf.”
 
Other highlights include: 

  • Home prices rose by 5.6% over September 2017, more than twice the year-over-year price increase of 2.3% from September 2016 to September 2017. That reversed a trend seen in the previous three months, when year-over-year price increases trailed 2017’s rate of growth.
  • Months Supply of Inventory totaled 3.7, which is the second-lowest for September in report history, second only to 3.6 months in September 2017.
  • Days on Market of 46 was a September record for the report – three days less than September 2017.
     

Closed Transactions
Of the 54 metro areas surveyed in September 2018, the overall average number of home sales is down 24.4% compared to August 2018, and down 11.6% compared to September 2017. Six of the 54 metro areas experienced an increase in sales year-over-year, including Orlando, FL, +17.2%, Tampa, FL, +8.5, Miami, FL, +6.8% and Birmingham, AL at +4.0%.
 
Median Sales Price – Median of 54 metro median prices
In September 2018, the median of all 54 metro Median Sales Prices was $241,000, down 3.2% from August 2018 and up 5.6% from September 2017. Only three metro areas saw a year-over-year decrease in Median Sales Price; Birmingham, AL, -2.1%, Anchorage, AK, -2.0% and Honolulu, HI, -1.7%. Seven metro areas increased year-over-year by double-digit percentages, with the largest increases seen in Boise, ID, +17.9%, Manchester, NH, +13.4% and Salt Lake City, UT, +11.9%.  
 
Days on Market – Average of 54 metro areas
The average Days on Market for homes sold in September 2018 was 46, up three days from the average in August 2018, and down 3 days from the September 2017 average. The metro areas with the lowest Days on Market were Omaha, NE, at 19, San Francisco, CA, at 26, Seattle, WA, at 27, and five markets tied at 29 –Denver, CO, Cincinnati, OH, Indianapolis, IN, Las Vegas, NV, and Salt Lake City, UT. The highest Days on Market averages were in Augusta, ME, at 90, Burlington, VT, at 87, Hartford, CT at 81 and Miami, FL, at 79. Days on Market is the number of days between when a home is first listed in an MLS and a sales contract is signed.
 
Months Supply of Inventory – Average of 54 metro areas
The number of homes for sale in September 2018 was down 1.0% from August 2018 and down 4.7% from September 2017. Based on the rate of home sales in September, the Months Supply of Inventory increased to 3.7 from 3.0 in August 2018, and increased compared to September 2017 at 3.6. A 6.0-months supply indicates a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers. In September 2018, all but two of the metro areas surveyed – Miami, FL, at 8.0 and New York, NY, at 6.0 – reported a months supply less than 6.0, which is typically considered a seller’s market. The markets with the lowest Months Supply of Inventory are San Francisco, CA, at 1.9, Boise, ID, and Denver, CO, at 2.0 and Manchester, NH, and Omaha, NE, both at 2.3.

Baby Boomers Downsizing is on the rise! Are You Ready To Move?

by Elite Asset Management Team

 

The lack of inventory, at least a portion of it, has been blamed on baby boomers. Should they really be blamed for it?

Here’s what some of the experts have to say on the subject:

Aaron Terrazas, Senior Economist at Zillow, says that “Boomers are healthier and working longer than previous generations, which means they aren’t yet ready to sell their homes.”

85% of baby boomers indicated they were not planning to sell their homes, according to a study by Realtor.com.

It is true that baby boomers are healthier and are thus working and living longer, but are they also refusing to sell their homes?

Last month, Trulia looked at the housing situation of seniors (aged 65+) today compared to that of a decade ago. Trulia’s study revealed that:

“Although seniors appear to be delaying downsizing until later in life, as a group, households 65 and over are still downsizing at roughly the same rate as in years past.”

 

 

Trulia also explains that,

“5.5% of households 65 and over moved, pretty evenly split between moves to single family (2.7%) and multifamily (2.4%) homes. In 2005, these percentages were virtually the same, with 5.5% of senior households moving, including 2.5% into single family and 2.5% into multifamily homes.”

What is the challenge then, if these percentages are the same?

Recent reports tell us that the older population grew from 3 million in 1900 to 47.8 million in 2017.

In addition, the Census recently revised the numbers from their National Population Projections:

“The aging of baby boomers means that within just a couple decades, older people are projected to outnumber children for the first time in U.S. history…By 2035, there will be 78.0 million people 65 years and older compared to 76.7 million under the age of 18.”

If you’re a baby boomer who’s thinking of moving to a warmer climate or downsizing locally and have questions about the process, meet with a realtor like Pete Veres, SRES, Senior Real Estate Specialist  & CRS – Certified Residential Specialist who can help you navigate thru the process and get the job done for you.

Buying A Home? Do You Know the Lingo? 
To start you on your path with confidence, we have 
compiled a list of some of the most common terms 
used when buying a home. 
Appraisal - A professional analysis used to estimate the value 
of the home. A necessary step in validating the home's worth to 
you & your lender to secure financing. 
Closing Costs - The cost to complete the real estate 
transaction. Paid at closing, they include: points, taxes, title 
insurance, financing costs, items that must be prepaid or 
escrowed. Ask your lender for a complete list of closing cost items. 
Credit Score - A number ranging from 300-850, that is based 
on an analysis of your credit history. Helps lenders determine the 
likelihood that you'll repay future debts. 
Down Payment - Down payments are typically 3-20% of the 
purchase price of the home. 0% down programs also exist, ask 
your lender for more information. 
Mortgage Rate - The interest rate you pay to borrow money to 
buy your house. The lower the rate, the better. 
Pre-Approval Letter - A letter from a lender indicating that 
you qualify for a mortgage of a specific amount.

The best way to ensure that your home-buying process is 
a confident one is to find a real estate pro who will guide 
you through every aspect of the transaction with 
'the heart of a teacher', putting your family's needs first.

Are We About to Enter a Buyers' Market?

by Elite Asset Management Team

 

Home sales are below last year’s levels, home values are appreciating at a slower pace, and there are reports showing purchasing demand softening. This has some thinking we may be entering a buyers’ market after sellers have had the upper hand for the past several years. Is this really happening?

The market has definitely softened. However, according to two chief economists in the industry, we are a long way from a market that totally favors the purchaser:

Dr. Svenja Gudell, Zillow Chief Economist:

“These seller challenges don’t indicate we’re suddenly in a buyers’ market – we don’t expect market conditions to shift decidedly in favor of buyers until 2020 or later. But buyers certainly are starting to balk at the rapid rise in prices and home values are starting to grow at a less frenetic pace.”

Danielle Hale, Chief Economist of realtor.com:

“The signs are pointing to a market that’s shifting toward buyers. But, in most places, we’re still a long way from a full reversal.”

In addition, Pulsenomics Inc. recently surveyed over one hundred economists, real estate experts, and investment & market strategists and asked this question:

“When do you expect U.S. housing market conditions to shift decidedly in favor of homebuyers?”

Only 5% said the market has already shifted. Here are the rest of the survey results:

 

Bottom Line

The market is beginning to normalize but that doesn’t mean we will quickly shift to a market favoring the buyer. We believe Ivy Zelman, author of the well-respected ‘Z’ Report,best explained the current confusion:

“With the rate of home price appreciation starting to decelerate alongside the uptick in inventory…we expect significant debate about whether this is a bullish or bearish sign.

In our view, the short-term narrative will probably be confusing, but more sustainable growth and affordability will likely be the end result.”

Your Home Isn’t Selling? These Reasons Could Be Why.

by Elite Asset Management Team

 

 

Your home has been up for sale for quite some time. You were hopeful for a quick sale, but it didn’t happen. It has been months with no offers on the table. It can be really frustrating, but understanding why it’s not selling is a great place to start to finally getting your home sold.

So, why isn’t your home selling?

  1. Overvalue. You may have overvalued your property. Your home must be priced right at market for it to get offers. Comparing your home to similar homes that have recently sold in your neighborhood is one way to find out your home’s estimated value. A good realtor will be able to get the correct value for you. Try to avoid pricing a bit high saying we can always come down.
  2. Listing lacks presentation. A listing has to have a good description with beautiful photos of the interior and exterior. Highlight important stuff like the unique features of your home. Work with your realtor in creating an excellent presentation.
  3. Always at Showings. You should not be at home when it is shown to people. This could add pressure to the buyers and could ruin the chances of getting your home sold.
  4. Not Negotiating Properly. When selling your home, you have to be open to negotiations. One reason why home sellers don’t negotiate is that they’re too attached to their homes. Negotiate for the right price and get your home sold. Even if a low offer comes in try to make it a win, win. Any offer is a starting point.
  5. A Dirty House. Your house has to be clean. Period! A clean house is inviting and fresh. Have your home professionally cleaned to make sure potential homebuyers see your home at its best. Air fresheners are a plus but don’t over power on the scents.
  6. No Staging. Have you moved already? If you have, you have to consider staging your home. Adding furniture and decorations to your home will make it look good for potential buyers. It gives it warmth and the home will be more appealing to the buyers. It is a proven fact that staged homes sell faster and for a higher price that vacant homes.
  7. Personal Items. You have to make sure your home is free of your family photos and other personal items. The goal is to let the potential buyers see themselves living in the home.
  8. Personalized Improvements. You may have done something to your home that others may not like and this could be preventing the sale. It could be something like the color of your walls, the built in cabinets with weird carvings, and a lot more. You may want to have these adjusted to better suit the potential buyers. Ask you realtor for their assistance or even higher a professional stager.
  9. Clutter. Clutter isn’t good when selling a home as it makes the room look smaller. Potential buyers may shy away at the site of clutter so be sure to minimize or de-clutter completely.
  10. Too many repairs needed. If your home is in need of a lot of repairs, most of the buyers are going to look the other way. The best thing to do is get the small items done, especially those visible to the eye. Also, be prepared for repairs after having all the home inspections completed.
  11. Realtor. Choosing a good realtor is very important. Select a highly qualified agent with good experience, a good track record and good credentials. A good start is selecting a CRS – Certified Residential Specialist.  Also note their presentation skills when you interview. If they can’t present themselves properly, how will they present your home?

Knowing these issues can definitely set you on the right path to getting your home sold. You wouldn’t be reading this if you have a good realtor or if you didn’t need one. Get a good realtor. It really makes a huge difference. If you are local in the Greater Albuquerque Area visit www.TopAbqAgent.com

RE/MAX National Housing Report for August 2018

by Elite Asset Management Team

 

Home Sales Decline 1% as Inventory, Prices Level Out

 

 

 

 

DENVER – The RE/MAX National Housing Report for August 2018 shows increasing home prices, low inventory and a reduction in days on market. These combined factors made August 2018 the sixth time this year that home sales lagged behind last year’s pace—but only slightly at -1.1%.
 
Home prices rose by 3.7% over August 2017, much lower than the year-over-year price increase of 5.4% from August 2016 to August 2017. In fact, the past three months of 2018 have trailed 2017’s rate of price growth year-over-year—compare that to four of the first five months of 2018 when year-over-year price increases easily topped those posted in 2017.
 
The Median Sales Price of $248,500 marked the 29th consecutive month of year-over-year price increases.
 
Even though active inventory dropped for the 118th consecutive month, the decline of 5.4% from August 2017 marked the smallest year-over-year decrease since August 2014. In addition, the August 2018 inventory drop marked the fourth consecutive month in 2018 to post single-digit percent declines, rather than the double-digit monthly drops consistently seen in early 2018 and over the previous three years.
 
“It varies by market, but we’re hearing that buyers are being more selective and sellers are becoming more pragmatic,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “That dynamic could bring inventory levels up, especially in the most overheated markets, where we expect to see the clearest signs of equilibrium returning. The economy is strong and potential buyers are out there—they just need more listings, at the right price points, to consider. We believe that balance will return, which will be good for everyone in the long run. It’s just a matter of when.” 
 
Contos added that although the lack of inventory continues to be a challenge, the trends suggest that the market finally appears to be rebalancing.
 
“The moderation we are experiencing seems to be a bit more than the normal seasonal lull we’d expect this time of year,” said Contos.
 
Closed Transactions 
Of the 54 metro areas surveyed in August 2018, the overall average number of home sales is down 0.4% compared to July 2018, and decreased 1.1% compared to August 2017. Twenty-two of the 54 metro areas experienced increases in sales year-over-year including, Houston, TX, +34.2%, Burlington, VT, +11.5%, New Orleans, LA, +10.7% and Tulsa, OK, 10.5%.
 
Median Sales Price – Median of 54 metro median prices
In August 2018, the median of all 54 metro Median Sales Prices was $248,500, down 0.7% from July 2018 and up 3.7% from August 2017. Only four metro areas saw year-over-year decreases in Median Sales Prices including Trenton, NJ, at -1.9%, Little Rock, AR, at -1.1%, Burlington, VT, at -0.3% and Birmingham, AL, at
-0.03%. Three metro areas increased year-over-year by double-digit percentages, with the largest increases seen in Boise, ID, +16.8%, San Francisco, CA, +11.7% and Augusta, ME, +10.2%.  
 
Days on Market – Average of 54 metro areas
The average Days on Market for homes sold in August 2018 was 43, up two days from the average in July 2018, and down 4 days from the August 2017 average. The metro areas with the lowest Days on Market were Omaha, NE, at 21, Seattle, WA, at 23, and San Francisco, CA, Denver, CO, and Cincinnati, OH, all tied with 25. The highest Days on Market averages were in Augusta, ME, at 91, Miami, FL, at 78, Hartford, CT at 77 and New York, NY, at 65. Days on Market is the number of days between when a home is first listed in an MLS and a sales contract is signed.
 
Months Supply of Inventory – Average of 54 metro areas
The number of homes for sale in August 2018 was down 1.0% from July 2018 and down 5.4% from August 2017. Based on the rate of home sales in August, the Months Supply of Inventory increased to 3.0 from 2.9 in July 2018, and decreased compared to August 2017 at 3.1. A 6.0-months supply indicates a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers. In August 2018, all but one, Miami, FL, of 54 metro areas surveyed reported a months supply at or less than 6.0, which is typically considered a seller’s market. The markets with the lowest Months Supply of Inventory are San Francisco, CA, at 1.4, Boise, ID, at 1.6, Denver, CO, at 1.7 and Salt Lake City, UT, at 1.8

July 2018 RE/MAX National Housing Report

by Elite Asset Management Team

Sales Increase Nearly 2%, Despite Record Prices, Sinking Inventory

 

 

 

DENVER – July home sales rose 1.8% year-over-year, making it the second month of 2018 to post a sales increase year-over-year, according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report.

In the July 2018 report, 37 of the report’s 54 metro areas posted sales increases over July 2017—April was the first month of 2018 where more homes were sold than the same month in 2017. The report also marks the 28th consecutive month of year-over-year price increases.
 
The Median Sales Price of $250,575 was up 4.4% from July 2017, and represents the third-highest price in report history—topped only by May and June of this year. Months Supply of Inventory was at 2.9 – the smallest total ever recorded for July.
 
Forty-two of the 54 metro areas reported a year-over-year drop in inventory. The Days on Market dropped to 41 – four days less than July 2017 and one day under the previous nine-year low set in June 2018.
 
“Because we’ve faced challenging inventories and increasing home prices for some time now, a seasonal slowdown that rebalances the market a bit might actually be a positive in the months ahead,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “It could level affordability to some extent and create more opportunity for buyers who’ve been priced out of hot markets.”

Closed Transactions 
Of the 54 metro areas surveyed in July 2018, the overall average number of home sales was down 8.7% compared to June 2018, yet increased 1.8% compared to July 2017. Thirty-seven of the 54 metro areas experienced an increase in sales year-over-year, including Billings, MT, +27.4%, Tulsa, OK, +13.2%, Richmond, VA, +12.9% and Pittsburgh, PA, +11%.   
 
Median Sales Price – Median of 54 metro median prices
In July 2018, the median of all 54 metro Median Sales Prices was $250,575, down 3.1% from June 2018 and up 4.4% from July 2017. Only four metro areas saw a year-over-year decrease in Median Sales Price, including Wilmington/Dover, DE, -2.2% and Trenton, NJ, -0.7%. Four metro areas increased year-over-year by double-digit percentages, with the largest increases seen in Boise, ID, +18.8%, Omaha, NE, +12.7%, San Francisco, CA, +12.6% and Salt Lake City, UT, +12.4%. 
 
Days on Market – Average of 54 metro areas
The average Days on Market for homes sold in July 2018 was 41, down one day from the average in June 2018, and down 4 days from the July 2017 average. The metro areas with the lowest Days on Market were Seattle, WA, at 19, Omaha, NE, at 20, and Denver, CO and San Francisco, CA tied at 22. The highest Days on Market averages were in Augusta, ME, at 89, Miami, FL, at 83, Hartford, CT at 76 and New York, NY, at 65. Days on Market is the number of days between when a home is first listed in an MLS and a sales contract is signed.
 
Months Supply of Inventory – Average of 54 metro areas
The number of homes for sale in July 2018 was down 0.3% from June 2018, and down 7.8% from July 2017. Based on the rate of home sales in July, the Months Supply of Inventory increased to 2.9 from 2.7 in June 2018, and decreased from 3.1 in July 2017. A 6.0-months supply indicates a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers. In July 2018, all but one of 54 metro areas surveyed reported a months supply at or less than 6.0, which is typically considered a seller’s market. The markets with the lowest Months Supply of Inventory are San Francisco, CA, and Boise, ID, tied at 1.4, Denver, CO, at 1.5 and Salt Lake City, UT, at 1.6.

Sales in June down 2.2% from last year, according to the National Association of Realtors’ latest Existing Home Sales Report.

Home inventory still below 6-month supply needed for a normal market despite the 0.5% improvement from last year.

NAR’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun had this to say: “There continues to be a mismatch since the spring between the growing level of homebuyer demand in most of the country in relation to the actual pace of home sales, which are declining. The root cause is without a doubt the severe housing shortage that is not releasing its grip on the nation’s housing market.”

 

In our local Albuquerque Market the median sales price is $208,000, up +4.1% from last year this time and months supply is 2.5, down -37% from last year
