THE RETURN OF THE HOUSING MARKET!

by qinfokusuma 16. July 2015 10:29

THE RETURN OF THE HOUSING MARKET!
Homeowners Re-enter the Market as Home Prices Continue to RISE.

By Rudy Lira Kusuma, REALTOR®

The housing market has been on a roller coast over the last decade. First came the housing bubble, and then the inevitable crash. More recently, the housing market has recovered with remarkable pace. Foreclosures are down, home prices are up, and generally speaking, homeowners are in a much better position than they were even just a few short years ago.

With the market improving, homeowners have more options than at any other point in the last decade. In general, homeowners found themselves in one of two groups following the housing market crisis. The first group were underwater on their mortgage, owing more on their mortgage than the property was worth. Some of these homeowners were on the brink of foreclosure. The other group, because of how much property values declined, decided to wait to sell their home because all the equity they’d built was suddenly gone.

For homeowners in these situations, today’s market presents incredible opportunities. Underwater homeowners are returning to positive equity in the millions, and many homeowners are finding they can even make money on their homes! Let’s take a look at the reasons why.

There are fewer distressed properties

One of the big reasons why prices dropped so dramatically in the first place is because millions of homeowners hit hard by the recession and falling prices could no longer afford their mortgages. These homeowners, called “distressed” homeowners, numbered in the millions.

Some of these homeowners lost their home to foreclosure, while others were forced to sell their homes for much less than they owed through a short sale. The sheer volume of foreclosure auctions and short sales kept prices low, as both are typically sold at prices well below average.

However, the number of distressed homeowners has fallen significantly. Investors helped purchase up large quantities of distressed properties. According to the National Association of REALTORS, distressed sales reached their lowest point since 2008, when the foreclosure crisis started. What’s more, the CoreLogic National Foreclosure Report, foreclosure inventory at the end of last year was 34.3% less than the previous year.

With the number of distressed homeowners dwindling, home prices have been able to rise quickly, putting all homeowners, including those who struggled through the housing market crisis.

 

Home Prices Have Increased

As already mentioned, between 2007 and 2008 home values crashed. Homeowners nationwide lost equity in their homes, and millions of others found themselves underwater, owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth.

However, as the number of distressed properties fell and the US economy improved, the market began to recover, and from 2012 onwards home prices skyrocketed. In 2013, prices rose by double-digit percentages month after month and continue to rise today. From the rock-bottom home price in 2012 to the end of 2014, home prices rose by 35%.

These significant increases in home prices helped restore equity to homeowners. At the beginning of this year, the rising home prices have helped nearly 6 million regain equity! Many homeowners don’t realize just how much things have improved. If you were underwater on your mortgage, it’s entirely possible you aren’t any longer!

 

It’s A Seller’s Market

With so many millions of homeowners regaining equity in their homes, many are now finding themselves in a position to consider selling for the first time in years. However, many are understandably tentative about getting back into the market after the roller coaster the housing market has been on. So, is now a good time to sell? Yes! And for two reasons: demand is up and supply isn’t keeping pace.

At the start of this year, buyer activity was three times higher than at the start of last year. A stronger job market, easier lending practices, and low mortgage rates are attracting lots of buyers to the market, and the Pending Home Sales Index, which tracks future activity in the market, continues to climb higher and higher.

However, while demand is increasing, supply isn’t quite keeping pace. Generally speaking, a 6 to 7 month supply of inventory represents an even balance between supply and demand. At the start of this year, inventory fell to 4.7 months supply. The tight inventory gives sellers more bargaining power in the market, helping sellers sell their home faster and for more money!

 

Should I wait? What’s expected in housing going forward?

According to predictions from Freddie Mac, home prices are expected grow about 3 to 4% next year. Mortgage rates are expected to increase as well as the economy and housing marketing continues to improve. With both mortgages rates and interest rates increasing faster than wage growth, affordability (or how much house you can afford for the money) will fall as the year goes on.

What’s more, competition is also increasing. New home construction is picking up and more homeowners are starting to list their homes for sale.

So if you’re thinking of selling your home, don’t wait! Take advantage of the current market conditions where you have more power in the market and buying power for your next home!

 

Thinking of selling your home?

As you can tell, the housing market is in a much different place today than it was during the housing market crisis. No matter what your situation has been in recent years, chances are your position has changed!

Home prices are up and homeowners have regained equity, opening the door for many sidelined homeowners to return to the market and sell their home!

An excerpt from my forthcoming book "The Soul of Success"

by qinfokusuma 29. May 2015 21:42

 

rudy lira kusuma, jack canfield, soul of success

 

In the forthcoming book that I co-author with Jack Canfield, "The Soul of Success", I shared how a Real Estate Sales Team Benefits Consumers. When the consumers buy or sell homes with my team, they automatically benefit from the most unique and powerful homeselling system that not only has been engineered... but more importantly, PROVEN... to give them better service and results. It is important for consumers to understand how different my system is from the way most real estate agents operate because this difference is responsible for the tremendous success my clients have when using my system to buy or sell a home.

I explained that when they sell their home with my team, it is far more likely to sell, and far more likely to sell for more money... the two benefits that typically matter most to most homeowners. I showed buyers how they can easily find the home of their dreams with the least amount of effort and the meast amount of money. This results can be traced directly to my team system, and here's how I explained it to them.

I have modeled my business after other successful business outside of real estate such as lawyers, accountants, doctors, etc. Instead of operating as a one-man show as most real estate agents do, I have hired a whole team of professionals who specifically trained to zero in on different aspects of the homeselling process.

Let's use a doctor as an example. If you're booked for surgery, your doctor DOESN'T call you up to make the booking, his or her receptionist does this. Your doctor DOESN'T greet you at the admissions department, or help you fill out the admission forms, or prep you for the surgery, or wheel you into the surgery. He or she DOESN'T administer the anesthetic, or wash the surginal instruments, or dig through the instruments to select the one he or she wants. What your doctor DOES do is perform the actual surgery, and he or she does so with (hopefully) skill and undivided attention.

So, how does the notion of specialization translate itself to real estate? Well, I had a customer service manager who was solely dedicated to following up with agents who had shown my clients’ homes in order to gather feedback about what potential buyers were saying about their home. This is very important information for both the listing agent, and the homeseller to know, and a detailed verbal report was given to each of my homesellers every week.

I also have a marketing department which specializes in putting together the most extensive and aggressive marketing plan for my clients’ homes.

My team of buyers’ agents are all responsible for finding buyers for our VIP home sellers clients' home. My clients find it easy to understand how this manpower significantly outweighs what they could find with a single agent.

I also found that some brokerages in my marketplace played a smoke and mirrors game with the word “team”. Specifically, they advertised pictures of all agents in the brokerage and pitched this as their “team”. Clearly, they were using the word “team” where it didn’t really exist. In reality, they had lots of agents who all worked independently of each other…NOT as a true team. They didn’t work together with a group focus on each individual client’s home the way my team system did.

When a prospect challenged my point that my team system is unique and would throw up one of these brokerage “team” ads, I helped them understand the difference by drawing an analogy to a sports team. Take baseball, for example. When a baseball team is in the outfield, each team member covers a specific responsibility. One team member pitches, another covers first base, still others take responsibility for the infield and the outfield, etc. By narrowing the focus of each individual team member, and allowing them to specialize in a specific position, when put together as a group, the team has all bases covered (no pun intended.)

If this division of responsibilities didn’t occur, the team would be far less effective. If, for example, all players covered first base, there would be many areas of the field exposed, making it very easy for the opposing team to run home again and again. This, I explain, is what it’s like in these other so called, “teams”…only worse. In the case of these other companies, all players are trying to play all positions at the same time. Every single agent is trying to be all things to each of their clients. There is no cooperative effort between them. You could hardly call this a team. It’s more like a herd…a herd of sheep, all blindly following the rules that someone made up when real estate began 120 years ago.

With my true team approach, our organized efforts meant that there would NEVER be any gaps on the “playing field”. As a result, my clients never had to worry about whether I took a weekend off (the way they would if they listed with a single agent). Our team coverage was so well organized and effective that my team provided 24-hour, 7-day a week marketing and back-up for their home. There was always someone knowledgeable, competent and experienced handling all inquiries on their home because all the knowledge didn’t reside with just one team member. Instead, a team of 5 or 6 was assigned to each new listing (each responsible for a different part of the puzzle), and with this manpower, we marketed their home in innovative ways that most agents couldn’t.

Because each of my Team members was responsible for a list of very specific tasks that occurred during each client’s transaction, there was never a question of something getting forgotten in the buying or selling process. Everyone was well aware of what jobs they were responsible for, what order they were to be done in and what the desired outcome was for each client
