Thinking of Selling? Why Now May Be The Time

Thinking of Selling? Why Now May Be The Time

Thinking of Selling? Why Now May Be The Time | Keeping Current Matters

It is common knowledge that a large number of homes sell during the spring-buying season. For that reason, many homeowners hold off on putting their home on the market until then. The question is whether or not that will be a good strategy this year.

The other listings that do come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market in the spring, as compared to the rest of the year? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed which months most people listed their home in for 2015. Here is a graphic showing the results:

2015 Popular Selling Months | Keeping Current Matters

The three months in the second quarter of the year (represented in red) are consistently the most popular months for sellers to list their homes on the market. Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,860,000.

That number spiked to 2,280,000 by May!

What does this mean to you?

With the national job situation improving, and mortgage interest rates projected to rise later in the year, buyers are not waiting until the spring. They are out looking for a home right now. If you are looking to sell this year, waiting until the spring to list your home means you will have the greatest competition for a buyer.

Bottom Line

It may make sense to beat the rush of housing inventory that will enter the market in the spring and list your home today.

Are Home Sellers and Appraisers Getting on The Same Page?

Are Home Sellers and Appraisers Getting on The Same Page?

For the longest time homeowners and appraisers in Las Vegas have been at odds with each other over home values. There were lots of factors putting them at swords point such as the economy, investors artificially driving prices hire only to see them drop to reality after they left town, companies like Zillow (see my blog, "Did Zillow Keep Your Offer From Being Accepted?") giving Zestimates that are out in left field, appraisers being brought in from out of town that didn't know the market and lazy real estate agents who didn't do their job of informing their clients of what their home is worth on the market. Plenty of blame all around. A newspaper article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "Report suggests Las Vegas homeowners, appraisers close on home worth," suggests that the tide is changing and homeowners and appraisers are getting close on agreeing on the fair market value. Allot of this is the fact that the Vegas realestate market has stabilized and has been stable for some time now. We cover the local market in our blog every month, see posts with the tag, "Las Vegas Housing Market Trends." We still have a ways to go to get everyone on the same page but that's a work in progress and I'm confident we will see that happen very soon. For more information about appraisals see our page "Appraisal Explained".

What to do AFTER the storm has passed

Posted by David Kaufmann on January 23, 2016 at 9:05 PM Comments comments (0)


What to do AFTER the storm has passed:

From the official website of the Department of Homeland Security 01/23/2016

Hello Maryland, now that “Jonas” #Blizzardof2016 has passed, here are a few tips on what to do next.


After Winter Storms And Extreme Cold

  • If your home loses power or heat for more than a few hours or if you do not have adequate supplies to stay warm in your home overnight, you may want to go to a designated public shelter if you can get there safely. TextSHELTER + your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA) to find the nearest shelter in your area (e.g., SHELTER20472)
  • Bring any personal items that you would need to spend the night (such as toiletries, medicines). Take precautions when traveling to the shelter. Dress warmly in layers, wear boots, mittens, and a hat.
  • Continue to protect yourself from frostbite and hypothermia by wearing warm, loose-fitting, lightweight clothing in several layers. Stay indoors, if possible.


Learn From Every Storm

Restock your emergency supplies to be ready in case another storm hits.

  • Assess how well your supplies and family plan worked. What could you have done better?
  • Take a few minutes to improve your family plan and supplies before the next winter storm hits.
  • Talk to your neighbors and colleagues about their experiences and share tips with each other.
