What’s Happening with Home Mortgage Interest Rates?

Rates are still quite good, although we are up a percentage point from last year and the projections by industry leaders Fannie Mae, National Association of Realtors, Freddie Mac and Mortgage Banker’s Association all indicate an expected increase this year as well. What does this mean for you as a homebuyer? The graphs below show you just a small increase can reduce the amount of house you can be approved for, increases your monthly payment, and adds thousands and thousands of dollars to your overall interest payment. This is a big deal, especially as home values rise, buyers may find they have to settle for less. If I can answer questions or help you in the Williamsburg Virginia area, please call me or submit the form below. Click to Search MLS here: TiaStanley.com

We are up a percentage point from this time last year as well.

Move-Up Home Buyers Rejoice!

If you do the math, you may discover you can buy more house than you could have previously afforded in 2006. This first graphic explains how just a 20% loss in values allows you to purchase a home and gain more value in the ‘move-up’ home. In this example you see a $50,000 gain.

When values rise again, you may appreciate and even greater gain as demonstrated in the table below. In this example, you see a total gain of $90,000.

In our final demonstration, you can see that waiting to make your decision can greatly impact your monthly payment and affordability if you consider today’s interest rates compared to what they may be in the future. If interest rates rise even modestly, you will see a significant increase in your payments. Maybe you want more square footage in your Daphne, Fairhope or Spanish Fort home. Opportunity may be knocking.

If you have been toying with the idea of buying a luxury home, a home with a pool or golf course home, but think now is not the time, think again! Now may be your best opportunity ever to get the DREAM HOME! Why don’t you contact us if you think this makes sense for you. No pressure, but we can certainly discuss your circumstances.

We Are Selling A Lot Of Real Estate!

Everyone knows it is a buyer’s market. It has been tough out there and home sellers have taken quite a beating. If you need to sell, you really need a good plan. The competing inventory is extensive and new homes are desirable & easy to come by, so it is more important than ever for your property to stand out from the rest.

The Tia Stanley Team specializes in just that. Our plan is exclusive and distinctive. It is precise and targeted. We make a financial investment in every listing and we expect it to sell. We are able to triple the number of buyers looking at your property.

Pictures are of extreme importance. Buyers are drawn to photos, especially good ones. We are taking our already very good wide-angle photos to the next level. We have invested in the best camera equipment, lighting, tripods, and have taken some classes to hone those skills. We do not do average. When we list your house, it should be picture ready. Clear the counters, take the art off of the refrigerator. Remove the bathroom rugs, and hide the shampoo bottles. We want to put your best features on display. Depending on your square footage and the features you have, we take 100 – 200 photos of each property and choose the best shots.

What Are The Odds of Your Property Selling?

Everyone focuses on sold prices and competing prices. Why? Because this is vital information when pricing your home. You need to know what homes around you are selling for and this also comes into play with the appraisal. Even if someone gives you the price you want, it still has to appraise.

The other factor is competing homes. If you are the highest priced home, even with really great features, chances are that you will not be the first to sell. Buyers are looking for low prices and figure they can upgrade over time any features that are not to their liking.

Lets talk about the much-overlooked but vital tool in analyzing your property and the odds of it selling. In any given market, in any given time, only so many properties will sell. This is known as ‘Absorption Rate’. In other words, how many months of inventory is available? Let me provide a simplified example, although there is more precision involved when evaluating a property:

Lets say if in 6 months 5112 properties sold in your county. That would be an average of 852 properties sold per month. If you then take the current active listings, lets use 7333 and divide it by the average homes sold per month, you would have a 8.6 month inventory. If no other properties come on the market, it would take 8.6 months to sell everything. Lets go further. Take those 5112 properties sold in 6 months and divide that by the number of closed, active, expired, withdrawn listings in the same 6 months and you would come up with a 29% probability of selling your property.

How does this impact you? It helps you determine how you are going to price your property to get it sold. If you price it too high, the probability of your property selling soon is unlikely. Your agent is in charge of the process. You, the seller, are in charge of the decisions and how competitive you are going to be.
