Market Update Week of August 10, 2020: Home Affordability Climbs

Black Knight reports that despite home prices rising 97 months in row, affordability is the highest since 2016. For the same monthly payment, buyers can now afford almost $32,000 more home than they could a year ago. The report notes that thanks to low mortgage rates, buying power is up 10% from a year ago. In that time, the average home price increased more than $12,000, yet the average monthly payment went down 6%! CoreLogic’s CEO says, “we expect these price increases to moderate [...]

https://youtu.be/mu4LfyEQb8g VIDEO DIALOGUE Are you interested in purchasing a studio space, or even just cutting down on rental fees for your projects?  I’ve been in production for over 15 years, and I’ve rented studio spaces in different parts of the country.

Video: How long does it take to sell a house?

https://youtu.be/GaLdYm37fy4 VIDEO DIALOGUE How long does it take to sell a house?  Well, I’ll admit that’s a bit of a tough question to answer.  No one wants their house to sit on the market for a long time, and in some cases you really need to sell in a short period of time, and of course you want the most you can get for it. I will say around Nashville there are certain markets that seem to force [...]

Market Update Week of July 20, 2020: Home Sales Up

Video: Buyer’s Market

https://youtu.be/G7bcPwwH3wc VIDEO DIALOGUE Ok so we covered the Seller’s Market, but what’s a Buyer’s market?  Just the opposite right?  Mostly, yes. Again, by definition, stock is plentiful and buyer’s are able to keep the prices down.  It might seem like an idyllic scenario where we are able to dictate what we want the prices to be as the buyers.  In real estate, this might actually come to pass on a case by case scenario. Let me give you [...]

Market Update: Week of July 20, 2020 – Housing Market in Recovery

The National Association of Realtors reports more than nine in ten Realtors say the market is recovering, as they embrace “technology and business practices to ensure the home buying process continued in a safe manner.” And that recovery is V-shaped. Purchase mortgage applications are up year-over-year between 13% and 33% the past seven weeks, and up 54% for new homes, while pending homes sales rose 44% last month. Home builders are joining the party too. Housing Starts jumped 17.3% in June to a 1.186 million annual rate. So it's [...]

Video: Seller’s Market

https://youtu.be/9_3ml8K5iL0 VIDEO DIALOGUE Is it a Buyer’s or a Seller’s market?  What’s the difference between the two? Well let’s look at the difference between them.  Today I’m going to talk about a Seller’s Market. By definition a seller’s market is one where the seller typically is able to dictate the price of something because stock is limited.  You have seen this before, especially in our current circumstance.  My wife tried to buy a bottle of rubbing alcohol at [...]

Video: Remodel VS Renovate

https://youtu.be/EahRAwznih0   Some helpful links:  https://www.bobvila.com/articles/renovation-vs-remodel/ https://www.realtor.com/advice/home-improvement/remodel-vs-renovation-whats-the-difference/ VIDEO DIALOGUE: So what’s the difference between a remodel and a renovation?  These similar terms are not synonymous, and it can be important to know the difference if you’re looking for an existing home renovation, or remodel. Here’s the deal, you already know that each term refers to improvements made on a house. That’s pretty obvious. A renovation will change the look and feel of a room - or an entire [...]
