When homeowners are preparing to put their properties on the market, one aspect is usually foremost in their minds: money. Setting the asking price accurately can mean the difference between getting an offer quickly and having a house languish for months, drawing little interest. With that in mind, it's important that potential sellers block out a lot of the noise that often surrounds the intricate art and science of pricing. There are plenty of myths that may cause sellers to lose sleep at night as they attempt to separate fact from fiction. The following are statements that can stand in the way of a successful sale.1. 'If we keep waiting, a better offer will come along!'When sellers receive an offer from the first showing, they may be skeptical or hesitant to accept it, wondering if o...

If you needed further confirmation that homeownership is becoming a more attractive option than renting to people across the country, just ask Harvard. According to the recent State of the Nation's Housing report from the Joint Center on Housing Studies of Harvard University, the national homeownership rate increased for the first time in 13 years (from 63.4% in 2016 to 63.9% in 2017), with the number of homeowners rising an average of 710,000 per year over the past two years. At the same time, the demand for renting has significantly slowed down. While growth in the number of rental households from 2000 - 2015 was at an average of 850,000 per year, that number dropped dramatically in 2015 - 2017 to just 220,000. The national rental vacancy rate also rose for the first time since 2009 ...

One of the main reasons people aren’t buying homes is they think they can’t afford it—especially the down payment. But, as it turns out, there are plenty of buyers out there who actually can afford to purchase a home, but their misconceptions about affordability are holding them back from making a move. According to a recent survey by lender Laurel Road, 53% of Americans are concerned about their ability to afford a home. But a lot of that concern is because they don’t know what their options are. A solid 58% of Americans surveyed said they planned to put down a 20% payment on a home, but 35% (and 46% of millennials) didn’t think they could afford to save that kind of down payment. But with alternative lending options, you don’t need 20% in order to buy a home! According to the Nationa...

There’s no arguing that the housing market in the US is currently favoring sellers; historically low inventory is heating up the competition and driving up prices. And even with those higher prices, homes are flying off the market faster than ever before (according to recent data from the National Association of Realtors, homes stayed on the market for an average of 26 days in April 2018—the fewest number of days since the Association began tracking the data in 2011). This favorable market is having a dramatic effect on seller confidence. According to the National Association of Realtors’ most recent Housing Opportunities and Market Experience (HOME) Survey, a whopping 75% of Americans believe that now is a good time to sell a home—up from 61% just two years ago. The Takeaway Three-qua...

Rent isn't cheap. It's tough to afford a place on your own. So, you have roommates. Maybe it's a friend or two. Maybe more. But it certainly beats living "alone"...in your parent's basement.But you're still not banking money...You're saving some money by renting with others. But not tons. It certainly makes your housing costs more affordable, but it isn't like you have so much extra every month to just go out and spend on whatever you want. So, it's probably hard to even imagine saving enough to eventually buy a house. You figure that day will come eventually. But not anytime soon. You'll figure it out someday. Probably not until you find someone you want to settle down with. Not until you and a significant other can combine forces (and bank accounts) to make that dream happen. But, at...

When you sell your home, you want to make sure you’re getting the best price for your property. The best way to do that is to sell when demand is high and supply is low. And if you look at supply and demand, there’s never been a better time to sell your home. According to the most recent Home Price Insights Report from CoreLogic, there are four times as many renters looking to purchase a home in the next twelve months than there are homeowners looking to sell. And as rents continue to rise around the country, the number of renters looking to transition to ownership will only increase. (According to Realtor.com’s most recent Market Outlook Report from Q4 2017, rents rose in a whopping 78% of counties across the US year-over-year.) The Takeaway If you’ve been thinking about selling your ...

When people think "affordable housing," they typically think of renting. However, that's no longer the case. According to Realtor.com's most recent Market Outlook Report (from September 2017), rents rose year-over-year in an astonishing 78% of counties across the US. In fact, renting has become so unaffordable, it's officially become more expensive than homeownership. According to a recent study by Zillow, homeownership is more affordable than renting in the majority of metro markets across the US. This unexpected shift in affordability is steering people away from renting and straight into their own homes. According to a recent article from Realtor.com, the homeownership rate in the US rose year-over-year for the fifth consecutive quarter in April 2018 to 64.2%. The country also lost ...

There are plenty of reasons to buy a home, but one of the main reasons is to build wealth. And if you own a home, chances are good that your wealth has gone up a few notches in the past year. According to the most recent Home Price Index Report from CoreLogic, home prices nationwide increased by 7% from March 2017 to March 2018. According to an April 2017 article from the National Association of Realtors, the median home price in March 2017 was $236,400. This means the average homeowner has gained nearly $17,000 in wealth from their homes over the past year. The major increases in home values are due, in large part, to the national inventory shortage which is creating serious competition and driving up home prices. But this seller's market can't last forever, and most experts predict t...
