Good Monday Morning!

Wow!  This weekend was a true taste of Summer!  We will take all that we can get.  

Congratulations to the University of Oregon Men's and Women's track teams for winning the Pac 10 championships over the weekend.

The statistics are in for the April 2010 Real Estate market in the Eugene and Springfield area.  April of 2010 saw closed sales increase by a whopping 67.6% over April of 2009.  Pending sales were also up and were 48.9% higher than the previous April.  New listings hitting the market were up as well and rose by 29.9%.  April closed sales were also up over March closed sales by 12.7%.  The inventory of homes on the market for sale stood at 7.3 months and this was down considerably from 10.5 months in April of 2009.  The Median home price continues to drop and was down by 4.2% from April of last year and now stands at $199,000.  The average time it now takes a home to sell is 109 days, which was down from 143 days in April of 2009.

The question now is, how much of this market upswing was created by the tax credits?  Now that the tax credits are gone, we will get an indication.  Low interest rates and continuing lower home prices are also adding to increased sales activity.

Slower Than Anticipated Recovery In Housing Market

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning,

Nationally, the home sale numbers for new homes have fallen short from predicted levels.  This could indicate a slower than anticipated recovery for the national housing industry.  This is not great news for the economic recovery that we are all hoping for. Consumer confidence in the housing industry is also suffering and this may not turn around for another year to 18 months. While many remain cautious in this market, it may be the best time possible for making an Real Estate investment.  Most fortunes are made during times of adversity and this market will see many fortunes made for savvy investors who are willing to accept risk in this market.  This will certainly hold true for Real Estate investors in the Eugene and Springfield area. The risk for purchasing Real Estate in this market is far less than investing in the stock market.  For casual investors or even buyers looking to move up to a larger, more expensive home the current risk is also certainly lower now than it was during the hot market of several years ago.

If you would like to learn how you can make this market work for you and make low risk Real Estate investments in this current market, please contact us.

Have An Awesome Week!

Obtaining Mortgage Financing In This Difficult Market

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

One of the largest obstacles in purchasing a home today is obtaining financing.  Whether you are purchasing a home for your personal residence or for investment, the mortgage loan process can be difficult.  We are in a whole different world now than we were several years back when anyone who could fog a mirror could also obtain mortgage financing.  Today, there are no stated income or no doc loan programs.  Only buyers with good credit and sufficient debt to income ratios can even think about obtaining mortgage financing.  Even the good buyers today will be under the strict scrutiny of the mortgage loan underwriter.  

As a result of todays tough mortgage world it is more important now than ever to make sure that you are dealing with a mortgage professional who really knows the current market.  Anything less could end in disaster.  If you are thinking about either a purchase mortgage loan or a refinance the list of top mortgage professionals who really understand today's mortgage climate is limited in our area.  One suggestion is to contact me and I can furnish you with a list of the best mortgage professionals in the Eugene and Springfield market area.  This just may save you a great deal of time and money.

Have An Awesome Week!

Spring Market Home Selling Tips

by Galand Haas

 

Good Monday Morning!

Daylight savings time is back.  Now with the longer days it truly feels like Spring again.

With todays competitive home market, home sellers are having to pay much closer attention to detail than ever before.  To start out with, in the current market a home must be priced correctly not just to sell but to even get lookers.  Pricing a home has never been harder than it is in this current market.  As prices continue to slide downwards the homes that have sold in which we typically compare values with may be worth more than a home going on the market today.  For this reason comparable sales are not the reliable resource that they once were.  Market savvy Real Estate agents are also not the norm and home sellers must seek out an agent who has a good perspective on the current market.  Over pricing a home in this market will insure that your home stays on the market for a long time and you will lose money as the market slips as you wait for buyers that will never arrive.  Pricing for a quick sale is very wise in this market.

Your home not only needs to be priced correctly, but it also needs to show better than the competition.  The best priced, most attractive homes are the ones being sold.  Home staging is essential in this market and the services of a professional home stager can save you time on the market and put money in your pocket.  Also, making sure that your lawn and landscaping is in top condition can make a huge impact as well.  Most prospective buyers drive by first and that first impression from a drive by goes along ways towards prospective buyers wanting to look inside.  

In this market, we council all of our home sellers carefully in regards to price, condition, staging and outside appearance.  The result is that the homes we represent sell for more money and in much less time than homes listed by any other area agents.  In this market this means more money in your pocket.

Have An Awesome Week!
