The Time to Sell your Home is NOW!! Here’s 5 reasons why….

Top-5-reasons-to-sell-your-home-now

I just saw this blog from one of my favorite resources, KCM – Keeping Current Matters.  They are constantly keeping up on the real estate market and offer amazing insight.  I don’t normally feature other blogs but this one was so concise and on target, I just wanted to share it with all my readers.

Why is now the time to sell???

1.) Demand Is High

The most recent Existing Home Sales Report by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) showed a 17.2 percent increase in sales over July 2012; sales have remained above year-ago levels for 25 months. There are buyers out there right now and they are serious about purchasing.

2.) Supply Is Beginning to Increase

Total housing inventory last month rose 5.6% to 2.28 million homes for sale. This represents a 5.1-month supply at the current sales pace, compared with 4.3 months in January. Many expect inventory to continue to rise as 3.2 million homeowners escaped the shackles of negative equity in the last 12 months and an additional 1.9 million are expected to enter positive equity in the next 12 months. Selling now while demand is high and before supply increases may garner you your best price.

3.) New Construction Is Coming Back

Over the last several years, most homeowners selling their home did not have to compete with a new construction project around the block. As the market is recovering, more and more builders are jumping back in. These ‘shiny’ new homes will again become competition as they are an attractive alternative for many purchasers.

4.) Interest Rates Are Rising

According to Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey, interest rates for a 30-year mortgage have shot up to 4.57% which represents a jump of more than a full point since the beginning of the year. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the National Association of Realtors are in unison projecting that rates will continue to climb.

Whether you are moving up or moving down, your housing expense will be more a year from now if a mortgage is necessary to purchase your next home.

5.) It’s Time to Move On with Your Life

Look at the reason you are thinking about selling and decide whether it is worth waiting. Is the possibility of a few extra dollars more important than being with family; more important than your health; more important than having the freedom to go on with your life the way you think you should?

You already know the answers to the questions we just asked. You have the power to take back control of your situation by putting the house on the market today. The time may have come for you and your family to move on and start living the life you desire. That is what is truly important.

Everyone’s Looking for Income Property

With the lower interest rates and high rental values, investors are coming out of the woodwork.

11483 SW 109 Rd, Miami, FL
Sale Price: $169,900.

I just closed on this townhome with one of my very first clients.  They bought a home from me back when I first started in real estate and remembered to call me when they were ready to buy again.  We looked at the best deals in the area and settled on this 2/2 in Greenglades Condominium.  They actually like it so much that after renting for a year or two, they are considering making it their personal residence and renting their current home instead.

3242-Mary-Street-Coconut-Grove

3242 Mary St, #S114, Coconut Grove
Sale Price: $95,000.

This is the second investment property I’ve helped this client purchase in the Courtyards of the Grove.  The first was a 1/1 they bought back in December of 2011 for $65,000.  We just closed on this 1/1 for $95,000. and another 1/1 just sold in June for $119,900.  Based on these two sales alone, the value of their first property has increased by over 50% in just 19 months.  Not a bad return if I do say so myself.  And that’s not including the rental income they will receive.
