Whose market is it anyway?

Ah, the age old question in real estate from clients… is it a buyers’ market?  sellers’ market?   Economists define the state of our local real estate markets based on the amount of housing inventory available.   Inventory determines sellers or buyers market

In general, when there is less than a 6 month supply of housing inventory, we refer to that as a Sellers’ Market where home prices will tend to be increased.   When there is a 6-7 month supply of housing inventory,  this is a Neutral Market.  In a neutral market, home prices will follow the trend of inflation and not see significant price increases or decreases.  When there is more than a 7 month supply of inventory, this is referred to as a Buyer’s Market.  In a Buyer’s market, home prices will be decreased over time.

A key fact to remember … the type of market you fall into can vary based on your specific price point, your specific town, and even the specific area of town in which the property is located. 

So what does this mean when pricing your home or submitting an offer on a home to purchase?  These definitions merely provide a general guage of market activity.   It means you still must evaluate the active listing competition on the current market,  recent properties that have gone under agreeement, recent Sold property prices, AND how much selling or buying that specific property means to you.   Sometimes you only get one chance to make the sale or purchase a specific property.

Manorahan closing pictureThere is absolutely a business side to all real estate transactions, for investors, this is the critical piece to a transactions in purchasing and reselling properties.  For most consumers, though, buying and selling a Home also has a unique personal aspect.  Getting hung up on economic theory is not a reason to miss out on purchasing a new home or being able to sell to make a move that may be perfect for you and your personal situation.

Curious where your current property fits into the housing market?  Or are you looking for a property to finally call Home?  I’d love to help you gather the information needed to help you make the right real estate decisions for you… just give a call 508-930-5259, e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com, or fill out the contact form below.

Always a pleasure to be of any assistance to you or anyone you know who is thinking about buying or selling a home. I love to work hard for my clients and your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Not sure where to start?  First Time Home Buyers are one of my specialties.  I have the patience, knowledge, and the right team of professionals to guide you through the entire process.  I surround myself with professionals who understand that as a First Time Home Buyer you are going to have questions, you are going to be getting advice (good and bad) from family and friends,  and that you aren’t even going to know enough about some parts of the transaction to know you should be asking questions.  That is when we make the biggest difference for you.  We aren’t just about numbers and deals… we are about working with people to assist them in making the best decisions they can when it comes to their upcoming homeownership move.

When you make the choice to work with me, you will also have the opportunity to work with some of the best mortgage officers, home inspectors, attorneys, and contractors around.  We have a track record of respect in the industry and success in reaching our clients’ home ownership goals.  The best part … we are ready now to work hard for you!

Always a pleasure to be of any assistance to you or anyone you know who is thinking about buying or selling a home. I love to work hard for my clients and your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Don’t be scared… get the facts!

Jen McMorran, RealtorMortgages and the home buying process continually evolve and change to meet the needs of the ever changing consumer, adjust to the state of over all economy, and facilitate a strong housing market without becoming irresponsible again.

So, “No”, it is not like when your parents bought a home 20 years ago or even when you friend bought a home 5 years ago.  But knowledge is power.   As long as you know the facts, you too can be on the path to home ownership which most financial advisors still believe is one of the best long term investments you can make with your money.don't be scared to buy a home
Infographic, Keeping Current Matters, October 2017

And of course, educating and sharing the facts is one of my favorite roles as a real estate agent.  Whether I am working with first time home buyers, move-up buyers, empty-nesters, or retirees … the entire transaction moves along smoother when we take as much of the uncertainty and fear out of the process as we can.

Did you know that there are still 0% down payment mortgage programs, 3.5% down payment mortgage programs, and then of course 10%, 20% …  The key is to work with a mortgage professional who will talk you through all of your options.

Did you know you don’t have to have a perfect credit score to qualify?

Did you realized that buying a home can ultimately be less expensive than renting?

Steph and Derrick SoldRemember until you discuss your current situation and goals with a mortgage and real estate professional, you may not have all of the facts.  I am always available as a resource to you, your friends, co-workers, family members… feel free to call, text, 508-930-5259 or e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com any time!!  I only recommend the best when it comes to mortgage professionals, attorneys, home inspectors, etc. as they are essential to successful transactions.  Again, please do not hesitate to reach out if you are in need of a referral or just trying to figure how to start the process.   It’s what I do… share information to help buyers and sellers meet their goals.
