80% of U.S. Home Buyers Searched For New Home Online

by Galand Haas

Hot weather has returned to the Eugene and Springfield area.  Hold on it could get near 100 degrees today.  Stay cool and enjoy!

It is true, over 80% of home buyers in the country began their home home search online last year.  This is a significant number and yet the majority of the Real Estate agents continue to market homes with traditional methods that do not tap into this huge pool of prospective home buyers.  Today's technology allows agents easy access to the internet, yet few have learned the secrets that will truly give them access to the home buying public.  As I look around the Eugene and Springfield market area I see very few agents marketing homes in any other way than the same methods that were employed a decade or more ago.  The fact is that the purchasing habits of the consumer have changed and yet the industry that feeds potential home buyers their information lags painfully behind.  This trend is certainly not going to change in the future.  In fact new technology with video, etc. is going to attract even more potential home buyers to the internet for their home search.

My suggestion here is that if you are going to be selling a home, do your research.  Find an agent who understands internet marketing and has taken the time to build the systems that will truly put your home in front of millions of potential buyers on the internet.  Don't be fooled by the fact that some agents will try to convince you that traditional home marketing methods still work.  The true fact is that the agent who can serve you best most likely is no longer using traditional marketing methods. The numbers tell the story.  With 80%+ of all home buyers finding homes on the internet, if you want to sell in this market you need an expert who knows precisely how to tap into this growing buyer pool.

Monday Morning Real Estate Update 3/17/2008

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

The Feds made another drop in short terms rates yesterday.  The Fed is desperately working to turn the nations economy around.  The threat of recession continues to be driven by the poor national housing market.  Here in the Eugene and Springfield area we continue to have one of the best housing markets in the country.  It is not the market that we enjoyed 2 years ago, but in comparison to other parts of the country, it looks positive.  The average time on the market here is about 94 days and there is right around 10 months of total home inventory.  Home price are sliding slowly, but not to the extent that they are in other national markets.

If you would like to get an idea on what your homes value currently is, visit the web site www.forhomesellers.com.  This site will allow you to enter in information on your home and then receive a market value analysis by e-mail.  It's always a good idea to get an estimate of your homes value, whether you are planning to sell or not.

Have An Awesome Week!

Monday Morning Real Estate Update 4/16/07

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

Well, for the most part this past weekend showed us some wonderful Spring weather.  Compared to other parts of the country our weather looks pretty nice.

Compared to other parts of the country, our Real Estate market here in the Eugene and Springfield area also looks pretty nice.  It is taking longer to sell a home, home prices are slightly softer, but overall we are continuing to have a fairly good Real Estate market here.  Many part of the country are seeing a slow down that is much more severe. The one factor that is somewhat concerning here is that the cost of development land, building lots and new construction continues to soar.  If this trend continues it could quickly put the brakes on our good market.

Have An Awesome Week!



AND HERE'S YOUR MONDAY MORNING COFFEE!!

Sincerely,
Galand
