Home Prices Have Appreciated 6.9% in 2018

Home Prices Have Appreciated 6.9% in 2018 | MyKCM

Between 1987 and 1999, which is often referred to as the ‘Pre-Bubble Period,’ home prices grew at an average of 3.6% according to the Home Price Expectation Survey.

Every month, the economists at CoreLogic release the results of their Home Price Insights Report, which includes the actual year-over-year change in prices across the country and their predictions for the following year.

The chart below shows the forecasted year-over-year prices for 2018 (predictions made in 2017). According to their predictions, the average appreciation over the course of 2018 should be 4.8%, which is still greater than the ‘normal’ appreciation of 3.6%.

If we layer in the actual price appreciation that has occurred this year, we can see that over the course of 2018, home prices have appreciated by an average of 6.9% and have outpaced projections all year!

What does this mean?

The tale of today’s real estate market is one of low inventory, high demand, and rising prices. The forces at work can be simply explained with the theory of supply and demand. That being said, if a large supply of inventory were to come to the market, prices may start to appreciate closer to the forecasted rate which would STILL be greater than the historic norm!

Bottom Line

If you are a homeowner whose house no longer meets your needs, now may be a great time to list your home and capitalize on the equity you have gained over the last year to make a significant down payment on your next home!

College Greens / Rosemont Real Estate Market Update August 2018

College Greens Glenbrook homes for sale

College Greens / Rosemont Real Estate Market Update August 2018

What’s the latest in the College Greens / Larchmont / Rosemont Real Estate Market? and find out now

Sacramento County Real Estate Trends

Hi Im Mike with the Rigley Realty Group at exp Realty. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to my channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

Labor Day has come and gone. School is back in session, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and 2019 are right around the corner, so what can you expect from the real estate market this fall. Let’s see what the data tells us..

Where is the Housing Market Headed?

Well the 2018 Real Estate Market in the Rosemont / Larchont / College Greens area has been wonky at best – wonky that’s a technical term for unpredictable and sideways. We saw the market peak earlier than seasonally normal. In August there were 45% more homes for sale than a year ago and 11.5% more than July BUT less homes actually closed escrow this year than last and also fewer homes closed in August than July. This certainly is not typical of how the summer real estate market plays out.

Technically its still a sellers market with just a 1.6 months supply of homes on the market but the feel is we are seeing the trends and leverage trend more towards buyers than sellers. We are seeing sellers have to right price their homes to get them sold. This doesn’t mean prices are dropping, it means sellers are having to get real on the price for the first time in 6-7 years. Average prices were still up 18.7% to last year and 3.2% from last month

So, what’s it all mean?

If selling – price your home right and be ready to make adjustments as needed. If buying, you have more leverage from now through the end of the year than you have had in previous years. Real Estate is cyclical and usually runs in 6-7 year cycles. The historical bottom of the Sacramento Real Estate Market was the 4th quarter of 2011 meaning we are headed directly into the end of 7 year cycle. These cycles are not exact. The historical peak of the market was August of 2005 but didn’t reach rock bottom until the end of 2011, so about 6 years 4 months.

 If you are thinking about selling in the next 12 months NOW is the time to call us.

The better prepared your home is before it hits the market the quicker it will sell and sell for more. Call for a Strategic Marketing Consultation and we’ll show you specifically how we get more for your home in less time. We’ll also talk about any repairs and improvements that you can make to maximize your return. More importantly, we’ll tell you what changes NOT to make saving you both time and money. If you are thinking about selling in the next 12 months, call us today for your Strategic Marketing Consultation. We will cover your goals and our unique approach to getting you the most amount of money in the shortest number of days with the fewest hassles

If you are thinking about Buying in the next 6 months NOW is the time to call us.

Again preparation is the key. Not only will we help you get pre-qualified for a loan so when we find that perfect home for you, you won’t miss out, we also show you our time tested home buying strategy that gets our buyers offers accepted 98.7% of the time, even when those offers are not the highest offer.

NAR Reports Show It’s A Great Time to Sell Your Sacramento Home!

NAR Reports Show It’s A Great Time to Sell Your Sacramento Home!

NAR Reports Show It’s A Great Time to Sell! | MyKCM

We ran across this great post courtesy of the good folks at Keeping Current Matters and thought you might enjoy the read.

We all realize that the best time to sell anything is when the demand for that item is high and the supply of that item is limited. The last two major reports issued by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) revealed information that suggests that right now continues to be a great time to sell your house.

Let’s look at the data covered in the latest Pending Home Sales Report and Existing Home Sales Report.

THE PENDING HOME SALES REPORT

The report announced that pending home sales (homes going into contract) are down 2.3% from last year and have continued to fall on an annual basis for seven straight months.

Lawrence Yun, NAR’s Chief Economist, had this to say:

“The reason sales are falling off last year’s pace is that multiple years of inadequate supply in markets with strong job growth have finally driven up home prices to a point where an increasing number of prospective buyers are unable to afford it.”

Takeaway: Demand for housing is strong and will continue to grow in 2019. Without an influx of new listings for sale, pending home sales will continue to decline. Listing now means you will be able to take advantage of the demand currently in the market.

THE EXISTING HOME SALES REPORT

The most important data point revealed in the report was not sales-based, but was instead the inventory of homes for sale (supply). The report explained:

  • Total housing inventory decreased 0.7% to 5.34 million homes available for sale in July
  • This represents a 4.3-month supply at the current sales pace
  • Sales are now 1.5% below a year ago

There were two more interesting comments made by Yun in the report:

“Led by a notable decrease in closings in the Northeast, existing home sales trailed off again last month, sliding to their slowest pace since February 2016 at 5.21 million.”

In real estate, there is a guideline that often applies: When there is less than a 6-month supply of inventory available, we are in a seller’s market and we will see appreciation; between 6-7 months is a neutral market, where prices will increase at the rate of inflation; and more than a 7-month supply means we are in a buyer’s market and should expect depreciation in home values. As Yun notes, we are (and will remain) in a seller’s market and prices will continue to increase unless more listings come to the market.

“Listings continue to go under contract in under a month, which highlights the feedback from Realtors® that buyers are swiftly snatching up moderately-priced properties. Existing supply is still not at a healthy level, and new home construction is not keeping up to meet demand.”

Takeaway: Inventory of homes for sale is still well below the 6-month supply needed for a normal market. Prices will continue to rise if a sizable supply does not enter the market.

Bottom Line

If you are going to sell, now may be the time to take advantage of the ready, willing, and able buyers that are still out looking for your house.

Best Ways to show your Sacramento Home

Hi Im Mike with the Rigley Realty Group. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to our channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

Ok – what’s the secret sauce to showing your Sacramento home and getting it sold? Let’s dive right in

Buying and Selling your Sacramento Home should be a 100% financial decision but in most cases we find it to be mostly an emotional one. Here is where these showing tips are going to really help you sell your Sacramento Home in the fewest number of days, for the most amount of money and if you use Jennifer and me to sell your home, with the fewest number of hassles.

Of course it’s all in the preparation. If you are unsure of what to do, take a look at our home selling series and watch the awesome videos on how to prepare your home for sale. But let’s say you have already done that. What’s next?

The most important and I can’t say this enough so write it down – LEAVE the property when your home is being sold. Let me say that again – LEAVE the property when your home is being sold. Buyers want to feel unpressured and able to envision themselves in your home. They want to be able to freely criticize your choice of colors or decorating ideas. They want to be open and honest between themselves and their agent and most won’t do that with you present. Sellers who stay and either give the tour or try and sell the property to perspective buyers generally end up getting less for their home than if they left.

Next to that, and if you don’t leave, none of the other tips will make a difference its that big of a deal, open the blinds and turn on all the lights. Light and bright is inviting and happy. Dark and dingy is depressing. We are trying to appeal to all of the buyers senses and set the emotional hook with the expectation of getting an offer. We want them excited and happy not depressed and gloomy.

Ok the lights are on, you’ve left for the showing what’s next. Remember we said appeal to all the buyers senses? We meant it. Set on some low, soft, slow (so they take their time) background music. Install some air fresheners or spray some Frebreze before leaving. Have the air conditioning on if its hot or the heater on if its cold outside. We want your home to look, smell and feel warm and inviting.

Do all these things as well as the other home seller suggestions we make and your home will be the next one in your neighborhood to have that “sale pending” sign out front

Well there you have it. Still not sure what to do or need more information? Click on the contact us link below or call today and we’d be more than happy to schedule a Strategic Marketing Consultation with you

When is the best time to sell your Sacramento Home

So when is the best time to sell your Sacramento Home? The easy answer is when the time is right for you based on your wants and needs, job transfer, death divorce, marriage or other life event. If you are asking strictly for getting top dollar for your home that’s a different answer.

Historically more homes sell between March and June with the Sacramento housing market typically peaking as far as number of sales in July. August is generally slower with less and less homes selling through the end of the year. Ironically inventory usually picks up in July and August resulting in price reductions to get homes sold. In this business, timing is everything.

If you are looking to get top dollar for your home, March through May is the best time to list your Sacramento home. Sacramento homes that close escrow in June more than likely went into contract in May. April showers bring may flowers and spring is in the air. Homes look way better in the early spring well before the Sacramento summer heat hits.

Once the summer is over, school goes back and the fall hits, less homes sell and generally don’t fetch as much as they would have in the spring. If you are buying, November through January are the best times to get a deal. People who are selling usually have to and are more open to making concessions. Not always but usually.

Well there you have it. The best time to sell is when you are ready. If you are looking for top dollar and a quick sale then March through May. Other than that the road gets tougher as the year wears on. Still not sure what to do or need more information?

Should You Stage Your Sacramento Home When Selling?

Should I stage my Sacramento Home

Should You Stage Your Sacramento Home When Selling?

To stage or not to stage your Sacramento Home – that is the Question

Should you stage your Sacramento home when selling? Only if you want top dollar for your home. Find out why by clicking the picture

Should I stage my Sacramento Home

The question often comes up, should I stage my Sacramento home or sell it vacant. Our answer is always, if you can leave furniture in the property or have the budget to stage, always stage. Its simple. Buyers tend to lack vision when touring homes. They need a little suggestive selling or props to help them visualize home the living or family room could be set up. Or how a queen bed looks in the master bedroom.

It’s all about making the home feel lived in. Think those new model homes are  furnished the way they are on accident? Heck no. The new home builders hire professionals to create that emotional hook. Really, nobody I know has ribbons on their bath towels unless they never use them. The use of potted plants, carefully paced towels and decor help create an atmosphere that conducive to buying.

The data tells us that staged homes sell for 17% more and 87% faster than non-staged or vacant homes. The home staging professionals say staged that for every $100 spent on staging, the seller realizes a $400 return. I’m not so sure that number is correct but I do know staged homes sell for more and sell faster.

A home staging consultation is one of the many perks we offer during our Strategic Marketing Consultation

In case you hadn’t figured it out by now – stage your home whenever selling.

5 Tips to get Top Dollar for your Sacramento Home

Hi Im Mike with the Rigley Realty Group at exp Realty. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to my channel

Tip #1 – Interview and choose the right Realtor. Yep, choose a market specialist who understands your neighborhood and has extensive experience under various market conditions.

Tip #2 – Price your Home correctly. No amount of marketing will sell an overpriced property. If you price your home 20% below fair market value you should generate enough activity to garner plenty of activity and usually well over asking multiple offers

Tip #3 – Improve your curb appeal. Buyers make up their minds in the first 60-90 seconds after pulling up to your home. Don’t give them reason to keep driving. See our video on 6 Curb Appeal Ideas to Get Top Dollar for Your Home for details

Tip #4 – Declutter and Stage. Depersonalize your home. Clear out the nick knacks and personal  pictures. The last thing you want is for the buyer to spend all their time looking at your “stuff” and foprgetting to look at the property – hey it happens more than you would think…

Tip #5 – Make your home easy to show and leave when it is being shown. Sellers who stay to “sell” the property end up taking longer to get their home sold and usually end up on the market longer, getting less for their home. Give the buyer and their agent the freedom to make comments about the proerty without fear of offending you. Its all part of the home selling experience
