Home Sales Are Rising Despite Supply Woes

November 28th, 2017 by Michael Mahoney

“Listings—especially those in the affordable price range—continue to go under contract typically a week faster than a year ago, and even quicker in many areas where healthy job markets are driving sustained demand for buying,” Yun says. “With the seasonal decline in inventory beginning to occur in most markets, prospective buyers will likely continue to see competitive conditions through the winter.”

The report is from Realtor Magazine’s DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2017

Massachusetts Home Sales Drop as Inventory Reaches New Low for Month of September

October 24th, 2017 by Michael Mahoney

Massachusetts Home Sales Drop as Inventory Reaches New Low for Month of September

by Eric Berman  of Massachusetts Association of Realtors  Oct 24, 2017

September Closed Sales by the Massachusetts Association of Realtors released by Paul Yorkis MA president

WALTHAM, Mass. – October 24, 2017 – The Massachusetts Association of Realtors® (MAR) reported today that closed sales for single-family homes dropped almost six percent this September over last year, while prices rose eight percent. Year-over-year condominium sales also saw a dip, with prices rising almost four percent. Inventory reached a record low for the month of September. See the full press release here

“This is the sixth month in a row of year-over-year decreases in single-family home sales,” said 2017 MAR President Paul Yorkis, president of Patriot Real Estate in Medway. “Unfortunately, the low inventory situation coupled with rising prices are taking a toll on some buyers’ ability to compete in this market.”

“We need to see more listings come on to the market to deal with these record inventory lows,” said Yorkis. “These listings could come from new production, people moving in with their families or in accessory dwelling units— any way it comes, young and first-time home buyers especially will be grateful.”

It Could Not Get Any Better Than This for a Seller

The period we are in now could not be any better for selling a home. If you are planning on making a move South or downsizing you could capitalize on this market opportunity. Given that real estate market cycles go up and down, it would be the best time to consider a sale if you are Baby Boomer looking to downsize. Chances are you won’t even have to do anything given the lack of inventory. Even the Pepto Bismol bathrooms sell in this market.

Old Ironsides is 220 Years Old This Weekend

October 21st, 2017 by Michael Mahoney

Old Ironsides 220 Years Old

Happy Birthday Old Ironsides

The USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy, named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States of America. She is the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel afloat. The Constitution was launched in 1797, one of six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794 and the third constructed. Joshua Humphreys designed the frigates to be the young Navy’s capital ships, and so Constitution and her sisters were larger and more heavily armed and built than standard frigates of the period. She was built in the North End of Boston, Massachusetts at Edmund Hartt’s shipyard. Her first duties with the newly formed U.S. Navy were to provide protection for American merchant shipping during the Quasi-War with France and to defeat the Barbary pirates in the First Barbary War.

The Constitution’s stated mission today is to promote understanding of the Navy’s role in war and peace through educational outreach, historical demonstration, and active participation in public events as part of the Naval History & Heritage Command. As a fully commissioned U.S. Navy ship, her crew of 60 officers and sailors participate in ceremonies, educational programs, and special events while keeping her open to visitors year round and providing free tours. The officers and crew are all active-duty U.S. Navy personnel, and the assignment is considered to be special duty in the U.S. Navy. Traditionally, command of the vessel is assigned to a Navy commander. She is usually berthed at Pier 1 of the former Charlestown Navy Yard, at one end of Boston’s Freedom Trail.

This Day in History: President John F. Kennedy on Relations with USSR

Geodesic Dome Homes in Massachusetts by Realtor Michael MahoneyOn October 6, 1961 President Kennedy was advising the citizens of the United States on the threats with USSR.

President John F. Kennedy, speaking on civil defense, advises American families to build bomb shelters to protect them from atomic fallout in the event of a nuclear exchange with the Soviet Union. Kennedy also assured the public that the U.S. civil defense program would soon begin providing such protection for every American. Only one year later, true to Kennedy’s fears, the world hovered on the brink of full-scale nuclear war when the Cuban Missile Crisis erupted over the USSR’s placement of nuclear missiles in Cuba. During the tense 13-day crisis, some Americans prepared for nuclear war by buying up canned goods and completing last-minute work on their backyard bomb shelters.

Looking to Move Out of the Big City to Get Away From It All?

This Day in History Enzo Ferrari – Inspiring Italiante Homes in Boston

This Day in History Enzo Ferrari – Inspiring Italiante Homes in Boston

Michael Mahoney Realtor

On October 5, 1919, a young Italian car mechanic and engineer named Enzo Ferrari takes part in his first car race, a hill climb in Parma, Italy. He finished fourth. Ferrari was a good driver, but not a great one: In all, he won just 13 of the 47 races he entered. Many people say that this is because he cared too much for the sports cars he drove: He could never bring himself to ruin an engine in order to win a race. Read more on the History Channel

Stefanie from “Brooklyn Limestone” has a great example of how to separate zones in the yard using outdoor lights (below). This small patio area is surrounded by a series of string lights suspended above, which separates it from the hammock and dining area nearby.”  from Houselogic

Check out some of these homes below if you are looking to enjoy your domicile. A simple firepit and some lights can create a place where you and your family and friends will make lasting memories from a shared meal to a deep conversation.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to relax.

Why Selling My Home in Boston This Fall Makes Sense By Michael Mahoney Keller Williams Realty

Why Selling A Home in Boston in 2017 Makes Sense

The Fall Demand Is Strong Due to the Lack of Supply Still

Keller Williams Boston Realtor Michael Mahoney

Why Selling in 2017 Makes Cents

The latest Buyer Traffic Report from the National Association of Realtors(NAR) shows that buyer demand remains very strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing, and able to purchase… and are in the market right now! More often than not, multiple buyers are competing with each other to buy a home.

Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market. The inventory of available homes is still tight. Inventory has been falling for the past three years. Housing shortages have intensified in 2017. Houses are moving quickly.

Home Staging Sells Boston Homes Faster

July 7th, 2017 by Michael Mahoney

Home Staging Sells Boston Homes Faster

Keller Williams Boston Realtor says "Home Staging Sells Boston Homes Faster"

Click to make larger

WASHINGTON (July 6, 2017) — Sixty-two percent of sellers’ agents say that staging a home decreases the amount of time a home spends on the market, according to the National Association of Realtors® 2017 Profile of Home Staging

“Realtors® know how important it is for buyers to be able to picture themselves living in a home and, according to NAR’s most recent report, staging a home makes that process much easier for potential buyers,” said NAR President William E. Brown, a Realtor® from Alamo, California and founder of Investment Properties. “While all real estate is local, and many factors play into what a home is worth and how much buyers are willing to pay for it, staging can be the extra step sellers take to help sell their home more quickly and for a higher dollar value.”

According to the National Association of Realtors report, which is in its second iteration, nearly two-thirds of sellers’ agents said that staging a home decreases the amount of time the home spends on the market, with 39 percent saying that it greatly decreases the time and 23 percent saying it slightly decreases the time. Sixteen percent of sellers’ agents believe that staging either greatly or slightly increases a home’s time on the market, while 8 percent believe that it has no impact.

Seventy-seven percent of buyers’ agents said that staging a home makes it easier for buyers to visualize the property as their future home, and 40 percent are more willing to walk through a staged home they first saw online. However, 38 percent of buyers’ agents said that staging positively affects a home’s value if the home is decorated to the buyer’s taste, meaning that a home’s staging should be designed to appeal to the largest number of potential buyers.

Forty-nine percent of buyers’ agents said that staging has an effect on most buyers. Another 48 percent stated that staging has an effect on some buyers’ opinion of a home, but not always, and only 4 percent said that it has no impact on buyers.

Realtors® representing both buyers and sellers agreed that the living room is the most important room in a home to stage, followed by the master bedroom, the kitchen, and then the yard or outdoor space. The guest bedroom is considered the least important room to stage.

Pending Home Sales Tumble in May for Third Straight Month

June 29th, 2017 by Michael Mahoney

 Pending Home Sales Tumble in May for Third Straight Month

 

National Association of Realtors Report on Pending Home Sales

WASHINGTON (June 28, 2017) — The ongoing supply shortages that are propping up home prices in many metro areas caused pending home sales in May to slump for the third consecutive month, according to the National Association of Realtors®. None of the major regions saw an increase in contract activity last month.

“The lack of listings in the affordable price range are creating lopsided conditions in many areas where investors and repeat buyers with larger down payments are making up a bulk of the sales activity,” said Yun. “Meanwhile, many prospective first-time buyers can’t catch a break. Prices are going up and there’s intense competition for the homes they’re financially able to purchase.”

Existing-home sales are forecast to be around 5.63 million this year, an increase of 3.2 percent from 2016 (5.45 million). The national median existing-home price this year is expected to increase around 5 percent. In 2016, existing sales increased 3.8 percent and prices rose 5.1 percent.

Massachusetts Association of Realtors Report Dip in Closed Sales

Homes for sale reach lowest level for May since 2004

WALTHAM, Mass. – June 27, 2017 – The Massachusetts Association of Realtors® (MAR) reported today both single-family and condominium saw a slight dip in sales in May from last year. Despite the drop, median home prices for both single-family homes and condominiums hit new all-time highs. Inventory also reached the lowest level for the month of May since MAR began recording the data in 2004.

The Greater Boston real estate market could certainly use more inventory. If you are considering a move at all, now would be a time to take a closer look at it. With the demand high, and buyers competing for properties the market is very forgiving when it comes to home repairs and concessions by sellers.

 

David Ortiz Courtesy of The Boston Globe

If I were considering a move,  I would go out on top like David Ortiz rather than waiting for the market to show signs of stalling.  By that, I simply mean that real estate markets are cyclical and that what goes up must come down. If I were in my older years, I would get out in the hot market rather than waiting for it to cool.

5 Reasons to Sell This Winter!

December 5th, 2017 by Michael Mahoney

5 Reasons to Sell This Winter!

Here are five reasons listing your home for sale this winter makes sense. This was taken from The Keeping Current Matters Blog

1. Demand Is Strong

The latest Buyer Traffic Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains very strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing and able to purchase… and are in the market right now! More often than not, multiple buyers are competing with each other to buy a home.

Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.

2. There Is Less Competition Now

Housing inventory is still under the 6-month supply that is needed for a normal housing market. This means that, in the majority of the country, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers in the market. This is good news for homeowners who have gained equity as their home values have increased. However, additional inventory could be coming to the market soon.

Historically, the average number of years a homeowner stayed in their home was six, but has hovered between nine and ten years since 2011. There is a pent-up desire for many homeowners to move, as they were unable to sell over the last few years because of a negative equity situation. As home values continue to appreciate, more and more homeowners will be given the freedom to move.

The choices buyers have will continue to increase. Don’t wait until this other inventory comes to market before you decide to sell.

3. The Process Will Be Quicker

Today’s competitive environment has forced buyers to do all they can to stand out from the crowd, including getting pre-approved for their mortgage financing. This makes the entire selling process much faster and much simpler as buyers know exactly what they can afford before home shopping. According to Ellie Mae’s latest Origination Insights Report, the time to close a loan has dropped to 44 days, after seeing a 12-month high of 48 days in January.

4. There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move Up

If your next move will be into a premium or luxury home, now is the time to move up! The inventory of homes for sale at these higher price ranges has forced these markets into a buyer’s market. This means that if you are planning on selling a starter or trade-up home, your home will sell quickly, AND you’ll be able to find a premium home to call your own!

Prices are projected to appreciate by 4.7% over the next year according to CoreLogic. If you are moving to a higher-priced home, it will wind up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait.

5. It’s Time to Move on With Your Life

Look at the reason you decided to sell in the first place and determine whether it is worth waiting. Is money more important than being with family? Is money more important than your health? Is money more important than having the freedom to go on with your life the way you think you should?

Only you know the answers to the questions above. You have the power to take control of the situation by putting your home on the market. Perhaps the time has come for you and your family to move on and start living the life you desire.

That is what is truly important.
