Creating the Strongest Bid in a Seller’s Market

Submit your highest offer upfront and put the seller’s wants first, and you will be calling that house a home in no time 

You see the perfect house on-line and you call your agent to schedule a showing.  The house is perfect!  It has the gourmet kitchen, open floor plan, lots of storage, the fenced in yard for the dog…it has everything you want and it is in the perfect location! 

Because the house is perfect for you, it is also perfect for everyone else.  Such properties quickly generate multiple offers in a very short time, but only one of those offers succeeds — and you want to ensure that your offer is the one that succeeds.  To ensure that happens, you need to place the best offer in a market that has significantly favored sellers for many months.   

Once you have found that perfect house, you should prepare to jump in with a strong offer that should contain these elements:    Continue reading “Creating the Strongest Bid in a Seller’s Market”

Real Estate Market Update – August 2018

How is the real estate market?  That is a question that we get a lot and there is no easy answer.  If you are a home seller, it is great.  If you are a home buyer, not so great.  Here is the August 2018 residential real estate update for Wake County.

How is the Market?

As a real estate agent, the most common question that I get is, “how is the market?”  The short answer is, “that depends….”  In recent months, if you are a home seller, the market is been outstanding, probably the best ever.  Inventory is at a near all-time low and buyer demand has been strong.  For homebuyers, the market has been very tough.  Low inventory and high demand have resulted in multiple offer situations and closing prices above asking.  Investors have benefited from rising rental rates and strong demand for rental units.  Truly, there is no one single answer to the question, “so how is the market.”

August Real Estate Market Stats

This month, we kick off a new series highlighting some of the trends and statistics for the residential real estate market around the Triangle.  Each month, we will focus on a different segment of the market.  This month, we are looking at the general brokerage statistics for August 2018 for Wake County.

 

 

Recap

The market still is heavily tilted toward home sellers, as low inventory and buyer demand remain two of the themes of this market.  We are starting to see some changes overall in the market, both nationally and in the Triangle.  Recent reports on the national market hint toward the market easing a bit and becoming more neutral, neither favoring buyers or sellers.  That remains to be seen and will monitor this in future posts.

A couple of highlights in the August data:

Average Sale Price:  Both for the Overall Market and the Re-Sale Market are up compared to 2017, but both numbers have declined each month since June.  While June normally is the strongest month for home prices, we shall see how prices trend in the coming months.

Days on Market:  Days on Market has increased each month since May to 43 days in August, up from 41 days in July and 32 days in August 2017.

Listings:  Increased 14% in August.  This is partially attributed to the increase in new construction.
