The housing market is ready, are you?

The Housing Market is Ready, Are You?

by SellingYourOwnHouseNow on April 30, 2012

There’s an interesting phenomena in the housing market right now – FSBO homes are poised to be a leading driver for home sales.  Why?  Because there are 2 major forces coming together, and as they meet, they compliment each other to push the for sale by owner model of selling much better than the traditional home sales structure. The first force is that people are making more than they are spending.
U.S. household income rose in March by the most in three months but consumers socked away part of the extra cash and only modestly increased spending
This means that consumers (or the people who want to buy your house) are saving, and not spending their expendable cash.   They are stocking this cash away for a rainy day, or the right opportunity – the opportunity to get a deal, or feel like they got a deal.  How do you know it’s a deal they’re looking for, and the deal is on a home?  This is the second force we can look at.  Sales of homes are rising, a full 4.1% in March, and the interesting thing is that this increase is not on new homes
More buyers signed contracts to buy existing homes in March than the previous month, according to a monthly survey just released by the National Association of Realtors. “The housing market has clearly turned the corner,” said NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun in a release. “Rising sales are bringing down inventory and creating much more balanced conditions around the country…
The best part is this is that these are existing homes – not new ones. People are looking for a deal.  whey they see they can work directly with the seller in a for sale by owner situation, they think they can get a deal.  So, what can you do?  If you have a house and are thinking of selling or even ready to sell, now is the time to use a trusted FSBO program that gets your house on the market now. No reason to lose out on capitalizing on this real estate opportunity, but you need to act.  The first thing you need to do is get on a program that walks you through the process step by step along the way.  By following a process, you can make the appropriate changes to get top dollar out of your house.  People may be looking for a deal, but will pay for the right property – so make your property the “right property”!  Once you have emotion on your side, the money will follow. The iron is hot, will you strike?

How low did you say mortgages rates were???

by SellingYourOwnHouseNow on January 4, 2012

I’ve been writing how mortgage rates keep dropping, and the news continues.  MarketWatch just posted an article stating that the 30-year mortgage has fallen to lowest level in years, which means the time is perfect if you have been looking (or even thinking about) selling your home.

Zillow said the 30-year fixed mortgage rate on its Mortgage Marketplace is at 3.73%, down from 3.81% a week earlier. The company said the rate dropped to 3.68% on Saturday and then held between 3.74% and 3.79% until it fell to the current rate early Tuesday morning.

The company said the rate hit its lowest level since the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace was launched in 2008. The previous low for 30-year fixed mortgages was 3.74% on Sept. 22.

If you were thinking of moving, stepping up to a larger home or even downsizing – with mortgage rates this low, finding a buyer has been easier than it has been in the past couple years.  On top of that if you sell your own home, you get to take the extra profit for reinvestment – or as that well deserved nest egg for a rainy day.  If you have been tossing around the idea of selling, 2012 may be your year – don’t miss the opportunity if your house needs work.  If you need the hidden manual on how to make it happen – check out the eBook and learn step by step what you can do to prepare and get maximum profit!

Increasing Home Prices and Sales in 2012

by SellingYourOwnHouseNow on January 2, 2012

It’s been a long time coming, and most people are really looking forward to a rebound in the real estate market. Fiserv and the National Association of Realtors are saying prices should start rising in early to mid-2012.  In addition, the National Association of Realtors reported sales have already seen a 17 percent gain in the third quarter of 2011!  The Press of Atlantic City has a great article with all the details.

Fiserv’s chief economist, David Stiff, said prices could stabilize earlier if economic growth has picked up more than expected toward the end of 2011.

The National Association of Realtors similarly expects existing home prices to increase 1.2 percent in 2012.

So what does this mean for you?  2012 is an ideal time to get your home on the market, and doing it yourself is a perfect way to capitalize on the opportunity.  Following the program, you can put yourself the perfect situation when people find themselves in a postion to buy, you are there with the perfect house – ready to sell!
