Buyer’s Market vs. Seller’s Market

April 17th, 2014

What does a Buyer’s Market and Seller’s Market Mean?  How is it defined and how does it effect a buyer and a seller? 

I’m sure you are familiar with the law of Supply and Demand…and in Real Estate much of the law holds true. 

supply and demand

 

The real estate market depends on quite a few things and in a Buyer’s Market a few common things happen:

1. The demand is lower

2.Inventory is higher

3. Listings sit longer

4. Fewer Offers

5. Lower Offers

IN A SELLER’S MARKET YOU WILL TYPICALLY SEE JUST THE OPPOSITE of 1 thru 5. 

There is also A STABLE MARKET, where the month’s supply is between 4 & 5 months.  Currently the mulitple listing service has reported the 1st Quarter stats for Johnson County and it was definitely a Seller’s Market with only a 2.8 months supply of homes. 

The type of market can vary from city to city and even neighborhood to neighborhood, so always go over statistics with a knowledgeable agent before going with the ‘AVERAGE’ reported for an entire county or specific city.

Understanding market conditions is key to determining if NOW is the right time to move and how to price a home to Sell.

 

Heat Detector vs. Smoke Detector

April 16th, 2014

thermal-detector-cropped

This IS a heat detector, rightfully named b/c it detects heat.  But why do I need this if I have  a smoke detector?

smokeDetector This IS a smoke detector and a common item that should be in every house.

greasy rags and trash And this is what caused the fire and could have been detected by a heat detector much sooner than a smoke detector!

——–Now Read This:

The family was sound asleep when they heard pops/cracks coming from the garage at 12:30 a.m. and thought someone was breaking in, but after opening the door to the garage they were met with a very large and intense fire.  They are lucky to be alive and will certainly pass their story along in hopes of educating and saving another home and family from a near tragic event.

Spontaneous combustion is very real and after witnessing 20 foot flames coming out of his garage at 1 a.m., I have learned the lesson and now it is my duty to pass it on!

Follow up to Heat Detectors- The smoke alarms did not go off in the house, even with a very large fire right outside the fire safety door.  So….the moral here is every garage should have a heat detector!  This alarm would have gone off and perhaps allowed them to call 911 sooner and salvage more of their home.

DO YOU HAVE A HEAT DETECTOR IN YOUR GARAGE?  PASS THIS STORY ON TO SAVE SOMEONE FROM A POTENTIALLY DISASTER.

number’s game

April 9th, 2014

It is a number’s game!  Well, in the world of Real Estate number’s are everywhere for seller’s to evaluate what various ‘experts’ say their house is worth.  There are also tons of places for buyer’s to try and figure out what a house is really worth and what they should offer.

#TRULIA & #ZILLOW are two common sites people visit to see numbers!  Values. Prices. Taxes. Estimated Monthly $$$.

My_Home_Value_2 So what is the best way to go about finding out how much your home is worth or how much you should pay for a home?  ASK A #REALTOR!  Looking at and evaluating recent homes that have sold or perhaps one’s under contract is a great place to start.  This method takes in to account if a house has seen price reductions, it looks at days on market, it give you an opportunity to compare apples to apples.  It also gives you a chance to actually talk with an knowledgeable expert!

So, check out the home sites you love AND save the number’s games for your Realtor.
