DC Ranch Homes For Sale | Is Renting Right for Me?

DC Ranch Homes For Sale | Is Renting Right for Me?

 

Did you know that in the DC Ranch community you'll find a variety of architectural home-styles from single family, attached, luxury rentals, custom homes and home sites.

DC Ranch is connected by miles of winding paths and trails that take you anywhere on the ranch including the community center, private golf course and country club, retail site, schools and much more. All neighborhoods are connected by a system of paths and trails which allow you to go virtually anywhere in the community without crossing a major street.   

If you are looking just for the right property in DC Ranch today, I would be happy to consult with you and bring you my experience and expertise in the DC Ranch Community to help you make the right the decision    

Today I would like to speak to you about Is Renting Right for Me?

 

If you’re currently renting and have dreams of owning your own home, it may be a good time to think about your next move. With rent costs rising annually and many helpful down payment assistance programs available, homeownership may be closer than you realize.

According to the 2018 Bank of America Homebuyer Insights Report, 74% of renters plan on buying within the next 5 years, and 38% are planning to buy within the next 2 years.

When those same renters were asked why they disliked renting, 52% said rising rental costs were their top reason. The results of the survey can be seen here:

It’s no wonder rising rental costs came in as the top answer. The median asking rent price has risen steadily over the last 30 years, as you can see below.

There is a long-standing rule that a household should not spend more than 28% of its income on housing expenses. With nearly half of renters (48%) surveyed already spending more than that, and with their rents likely to rise again, it’s never a bad idea to reconsider your family’s plan and ask yourself if renting is your best angle going forward. When asked why they haven’t purchased a home yet, not having enough saved for a down payment (44%) came in as the top response. The report went on to reveal that nearly half of all respondents believe that “a 20% down payment is required to buy a home.”

The reality is, the need to produce a 20% down payment is one of the biggest misconceptions of homeownership, especially for first-time buyers. That means a large number of renters may be able to buy now, and they don’t even know it.

 

Bottom Line

If you’re one of the many renters who are tired of rising rents but may be confused about what is required to buy in today’s market, let’s get together to determine your path to homeownership.

Questions continue to come up about where home prices will head throughout the rest of this year, as well as where they may be going over the few years beyond. We’ve gathered current data from the industry’s most reliable sources to help answer these questions:

 

The Home Price Expectation Survey – A survey of over 100 market analysts, real estate experts, and economists conducted by Pulsenomics each quarter.

Here’s the home price appreciation these experts are projecting over the next few years:

Bottom Line

Every source sees home prices continuing to appreciate, which is great news for the strength of the market. The increase is steepest throughout the rest of 2019, and prices should continue to rise as we move through 2020 and beyond.

Scottsdale Homes For Sale | Now’s the Time to Move-Up and Upgrade Your Current Home!

Scottsdale Homes For Sale | Now’s the Time to Move-Up and Upgrade Your Current Home!

 

So, you find yourself looking for a real estate agent as you are ready to buy a home, sell a home or perhaps both…  

When it comes to Scottsdale Real Estate and the vast amount of choices offered from many venues. It is wise to take your time and take your home search seriously     

Did you know that the real estate agent you choose could make or break things for you? Did you also know that the professional that you choose to help you during the process of buying or selling your next home should be done with caution or it could cost you thousands of dollars?     

I offer my services in the Scottsdale Real Estate to the public because I excel in my ability to understand your needs, translate them into reality and to do so with the minimum of angst ...and for that reason, I believe I’m the right person for you. 

Today, I want to address something that may be very important to you, it is about Now’s the Time to Move-Up and Upgrade Your Current Home!

 

Homes priced at the top 25% of the price range for a particular area of the country are considered “premium homes.” In today’s real estate market, there are deals to be had at the higher end! This is great news for homeowners wanting to upgrade from their current house.

Much of the demand for housing over the past couple of years has come from first-time buyers looking for their starter home. Many of the more expensive homes listed for sale have not seen as much interest.

According to ILHM’s Luxury Report, this mismatch in demand and inventory of luxury and premium homes has created a Buyer’s Market. For the purpose of the report, a luxury home was defined as one that costs $1 million or more.

 

“A Buyer’s Market indicates that buyers have greater control over the price point. This market type is demonstrated by a substantial number of homes on the market and few sales, suggesting demand for residential properties is slow for that market and/or price point.”

 

The authors of the report were quick to point out that current conditions at the higher end of the market are no cause for concern.

 

While luxury homes may take longer to sell than in previous years, the slower pace, increased inventory levels and larger differences between list and sold prices, represent a normalization of the market, not a downturn.”

 

Luxury can mean different things to different people. To one person, luxury is a secluded home with plenty of property and privacy. To another, it could be a penthouse at the center of a bustling city. Knowing what characteristics mean luxury to you will help your agent find you the home of your dreams.

 

Bottom Line

If you are debating upgrading your current house to a premium or luxury home, now is the time!

DC Ranch Homes For Sale | Top 5 Reasons You Should NOT FSBO

DC Ranch Homes For Sale | Top 5 Reasons You Should NOT FSBO

 

Did you know that in the DC Ranch community you'll find a variety of architectural home-styles from single family, attached, luxury rentals, custom homes and home sites.    

DC Ranch has slowly transformed over the last few years. DC Ranch is connected by miles of winding paths and trails that take you anywhere on the ranch including the community center, private golf course and country club, retail site, schools and much more. All neighborhoods are connected by a system of paths and trails which allow you to go virtually anywhere in the community without crossing a major street.   

If you are looking just for the right property in DC Ranch today, I would be happy to consult with you and bring you my experience and expertise in the DC Ranch Community to help you make the right the decision    

Today I would like to speak to you about Top 5 Reasons You Should NOT FSBO

 

Rising home prices coupled with a lack of inventory in today’s market may cause some homeowners to consider selling their home on their own (known in the industry as a For Sale By Owner). However, a FSBO might not be a good idea for the vast majority of sellers.

 

The top 5 reasons are listed below:

1. Online Strategy for Prospective Purchasers

 

Recent studies have shown that 95% of buyers search online for a home. In comparison, only 13% use print newspaper ads. Most real estate agents have an Internet strategy to promote the sale of your home. Do you?

 

2. Results Come from the Internet

Where did buyers find the home they actually purchased?

 

 * 50% on the Internet

 * 28% from a Real Estate Agent

 * 7% from a yard sign

 * 1% from newspapers

 

The days of selling your house by putting up a sign and listing it in the paper are long gone. Having a strong Internet strategy is crucial.

 

3. There Are Too Many People to Negotiate With

Here is a list of some of the people with whom you must be prepared to negotiate if you decide to For Sale By Owner:

 

 * The buyer who wants the best deal possible

 * The buyer’s agent, who solely represents the best interest of the buyer

 * The buyer’s attorney (in some parts of the country)

 * The home inspection companies, which work for the buyer and will almost always find some problems    with the house

 * The appraiser, if there is a question of value

 

4. FSBOing Has Become Increasingly Difficult

 

The paperwork involved in the process has increased dramatically as industry disclosures and regulations have become mandatory. This is one of the reasons that the percentage of people FSBOing has dropped from 19% to 7% over the last 20+ years.

 

5. You Net More Money When Using an Agent

Many homeowners believe that they will save the real estate commission by selling on their own. Realize that the main reason buyers look at FSBOs is because they also believe they can save the real estate agent’s commission. The seller and buyer can’t both save the commission.

A study by Collateral Analytics revealed that FSBOs don’t actually save anything by forgoing the help of an agent. In some cases, they may actually cost themselves more. One of the main reasons for the price difference at the time of sale is:

“Properties listed with a broker that is a member of the local MLS will be listed online with all other participating broker websites, marketing the home to a much larger buyer population. And those MLS properties generally offer compensation to agents who represent buyers, incentivizing them to show and sell the property and again potentially enlarging the buyer pool.”

The more buyers that view a home, the greater the chance of a bidding war for the property. The study found the difference in price between comparable homes of size and location is currently at an average of 6%.

Listing on your own leaves you to manage the entire transaction yourself. Why do that when you can hire an agent without additional cost?

 

Bottom Line

Before you decide to take on the challenge of selling your house on your own, let’s get together to discuss your needs.

Whether you are new to the new construction real estate market in Scottsdale or you are just relocating to this area…I have the expertise, the energy, the enthusiasm and the access to resources to help you achieve your goals.  

Today, I would like to talk to you about Stop Wondering What Your Budget Is & Get Pre-Approved!

 

In many markets across the country, the number of buyers searching for their dream homes outnumbers the number of homes for sale. This has led to a competitive marketplace where buyers often need to stand out. One way to show that you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage before starting your search.

Even if you are not in an incredibly competitive market, understanding your budget will give you the confidence of knowing whether or not your dream home is within your reach.

Freddie Mac lays out the advantages of pre-approval in the ‘My Home’ section of their website:

“It’s highly recommended that you work with your lender to get pre-approved before you begin house hunting. Pre-approval will tell you how much home you can afford and can help you move faster, and with greater confidence, in competitive markets.”

One of the many advantages of working with a local real estate professional is that many have relationships with lenders who will be able to help you through this process. Once you have selected a lender, you will need to fill out their loan application and provide them with important information regarding “your credit, debt, work history, down payment and residential history.”

Freddie Mac describes the ‘4 Cs’ that help determine the amount you will be qualified to borrow:

 

1.- Capacity: Your current and future ability to make your payments

2.- Capital or cash reserves: The money, savings, and investments you have that can be sold quickly for cash

3.- Collateral: The home, or type of home, that you would like to purchase

4.- Credit: Your history of paying bills and other debts on time

 

Getting pre-approved is one of many steps that will show home sellers that you are serious about buying, and it often helps speed up the process once your offer has been accepted.

 

Bottom Line

Many potential homebuyers overestimate the down payment and credit scores necessary to qualify for a mortgage. If you are ready and willing to buy, you may be pleasantly surprised at your ability to do so today.

Scottsdale Homes For Sale | 5 Reasons to Sell Your House This Summer

Scottsdale Homes For Sale | 5 Reasons to Sell Your House This Summer

 

So, you find yourself looking for a real estate agent as you are ready to buy a home, sell a home or perhaps both…  

When it comes to Scottsdale Real Estate and the vast amount of choices offered from many venues. It is wise to take your time and take your home search seriously     

Did you know that the real estate agent you choose could make or break things for you? Did you also know that the professional that you choose to help you during the process of buying or selling your next home should be done with caution or it could cost you thousands of dollars?     

I offer my services in the Scottsdale Real Estate to the public because I excel in my ability to understand your needs, translate them into reality and to do so with the minimum of angst ...and for that reason, I believe I’m the right person for you. 

Today, I want to address something that may be very important to you, it is about 5 Reasons to Sell Your House This Summer

 

Here are 5 compelling reasons listing your home for sale this summer makes sense.

 

1. Demand Is Strong

The latest Buyer Traffic Index from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing, and able to purchase… and are in the market right now! More often than not, multiple buyers are competing with each other for the same home.

Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.

 

2. There Is Less Competition Now

Housing inventory is still under the 6-month supply needed for a normal housing market. This means that, in most of the country, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers.

Historically, the average number of years a homeowner stayed in his or her home was six, but that number has hovered between nine and ten years since 2011. Many homeowners have a pent-up desire to move, as they were unable to sell over the last few years due to a negative equity situation. As home values continue to appreciate, more and more homeowners are granted the freedom to move.

Many homeowners were reluctant to list their home over the last couple of years for fear that they would not find a home to move in to. That is all changing now as more homes come to market at the higher end. The choices buyers have will continue to increase. Don’t wait until additional inventory comes to market before you to decide to sell.

 

3. The Process Will Be Quicker

Today’s competitive environment has forced buyers to do all they can to stand out from the crowd, including getting pre-approved for their mortgage financing. Buyers know exactly what they can afford before home shopping. This makes the entire selling process much faster and simpler. According to Ellie Mae’s latest Origination Insights Report, the time to close a loan has dropped to 43 days. (Last numbers available.)

 

4. There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move Up

If your next move will be into a premium or luxury home, now is the time to move up! The inventory of homes for sale at these higher price ranges has created a buyer’s market. This means that if you are planning on selling a starter or trade-up home, it will sell quickly, AND you’ll be able to find a premium home to call your own!

According to CoreLogic, prices are projected to appreciate by 4.8% over the next year. If you are moving to a higher-priced home, it will wind up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait.

 

5. It’s Time to Move on with Your Life

Look at the reason you decided to sell in the first place and determine whether it is worth waiting. Is money more important than being with family? Is money more important than having the freedom to go on with your life the way you think you should?

Only you know the answers to these questions. You have the power to take control of the situation by putting your home on the market. Perhaps the time has come for you and your family to start living the life you desire.

DC Ranch Homes For Sale | 2 Myths Holding Back Home Buyers

DC Ranch Homes For Sale | 2 Myths Holding Back Home Buyers

 

Did you know that in the DC Ranch community you'll find a variety of architectural home-styles from single family, attached, luxury rentals, custom homes and home sites.    

DC Ranch has slowly transformed over the last few years. DC Ranch is connected by miles of winding paths and trails that take you anywhere on the ranch including the community center, private golf course and country club, retail site, schools and much more. All neighborhoods are connected by a system of paths and trails which allow you to go virtually anywhere in the community without crossing a major street.   

If you are looking just for the right property in DC Ranch today, I would be happy to consult with you and bring you my experience and expertise in the DC Ranch Community to help you make the right the decision    

Today I would like to speak to you about 2 Myths Holding Back Home Buyers

 

Freddie Mac recently released a report entitled, “Perceptions of Down Payment Consumer Research.” Their research revealed that,

“For many prospective homebuyers, saving for a down payment is the largest barrier to achieving the goal of homeownership. Part of the challenge for those planning to purchase a home is their perception of how much they will need to save for the down payment…

…Based on our recent survey of individuals planning to purchase a home in the next three years, nearly a third think they need to put more than 20% down.”

 

Myth #1: “I Need a 20% Down Payment”

Buyers often overestimate the funds needed to qualify for a home loan. According to the same report:

22% of renters and 31% of homeowners believe lenders require 20% or more of a home’s sale price as a down payment for a typical mortgage today. And,

“If a 20% down payment was required, 70% of those who were planning to buy a home in the next three years said it would delay them from purchasing and nearly 30% indicated they would never be able to afford a home.”  

While many believe at least 20% down is necessary to buy the home of their dreams, they do not realize programs are available which permit as little as 3%. Many renters may actually be able to enter the housing market sooner than they ever imagined!

 

Myth #2: “I Need a 780 FICO® Score or Higher to Buy”

Many either don’t know or are misinformed concerning the FICO® score necessary to qualify, believing a ‘good’ credit score is 780 or higher.

To debunk this myth, let’s take a look at Ellie Mae’s latest Origination Insight Report, which focuses on recently closed (approved) loans.

As indicated in the chart above, 52.4% of approved mortgages had a credit score of 600-749.

 

Bottom Line

Whether buying your first home or moving up to your dream home, knowing your options will make the mortgage process easier. Your dream home may already be within your reach.

Scottsdale New Construction | 4 Reasons to Buy A Home This Summer

Scottsdale New Construction | 4 Reasons to Buy A Home This Summer

 

The process of buying a brand new home in Scottsdale Arizona takes place over a long period of time and in several stages. Whether you are choosing a new house in a Scottsdale neighborhood or prefer a custom home built by a home-builder, the most important step is to make a decision who you want representing you to make an intelligent choice.  

You'll need guidance to find all the options available in the area from “ALL” available home-builders. You'll need to take some time deciding on your priorities — what you want in a home? where you want to live? and how much you want to spend?

I bring you the options of what is currently available from “ALL” the builders (not just one), what will be released and available soon?…what are the best builder incentives..etc.   

Whether you are new to the new construction real estate market in Scottsdale or you are just relocating to this area…I have the expertise, the energy, the enthusiasm and the access to resources to help you achieve your goals.  

Today, I would like to talk to you about 4 Reasons to Buy A Home This Summer

 

Here are four reasons to consider buying today instead of waiting.

 

1. Prices Will Continue to Rise

CoreLogic’s latest U.S. Home Price Insights reports that home prices have appreciated by 3.7% over the last 12 months. The same report predicts that prices will continue to increase at a rate of 4.8% over the next year.

Home values will continue to appreciate. Waiting may no longer makes sense.

 

2. Mortgage Interest Rates Are Projected to Increase

Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey shows that interest rates for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage have started to level off around 4.3%. Most experts predict that rates will rise over the next 12 months. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the National Association of Realtors are in unison, projecting rates will increase by this time next year.

An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, your housing expense will increase if a mortgage is necessary to buy your next home.

 

3. Either Way, You Are Paying a Mortgage

Some renters have not yet purchased a home because they are uncomfortable taking on the obligation of a mortgage. Everyone should realize that unless you are living with your parents rent-free, you are paying a mortgage – either yours or your landlord’s.

As an owner, your mortgage payment is a form of ‘forced savings’ which allows you to have equity in your home that you can tap into later in life. As a renter, you guarantee your landlord is the person with that equity.

Are you ready to put your housing cost to work for you?

 

4. It’s Time to Move On with Your Life

The ‘cost’ of a home is determined by two major components: the price of the home and the current mortgage rate. It appears that both are on the rise.

But what if they weren’t? Would you wait?

Examine the actual reason you are buying and decide if it is worth waiting. Whether you want to have a great place for your children to grow up, greater safety for your family, or you just want to have control over renovations, now could be the time to buy.

 

Bottom Line

If the right thing for you and your family is to purchase a home this year, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.

Scottsdale Homes For Sale | Multigenerational Homes Are on the Rise

Scottsdale Homes For Sale | Multigenerational Homes Are on the Rise

 

So, you find yourself looking for a real estate agent as you are ready to buy a home, sell a home or perhaps both…  

When it comes to Scottsdale Real Estate and the vast amount of choices offered from many venues. It is wise to take your time and take your home search seriously     

Did you know that the real estate agent you choose could make or break things for you? Did you also know that the professional that you choose to help you during the process of buying or selling your next home should be done with caution or it could cost you thousands of dollars?     

I offer my services in the Scottsdale Real Estate to the public because I excel in my ability to understand your needs, translate them into reality and to do so with the minimum of angst ...and for that reason, I believe I’m the right person for you.     

Today, I want to address something that may be very important to you, it is about Multigenerational Homes Are on the Rise

 

As loved ones start to get older, we start to wonder: how long will they be able to live alone? Will they need someone there to help them with daily life? There’s a reason to ask those questions now more than ever, as the average life expectancy in the U.S. is 78 years old!  As a result, 41% of Americans in the market are searching for a home that can accommodate a multigenerational family.

The graph below shows the number of people by generation that purchased a multigenerational home because they will either be taking care of an aging parent or they just want to spend time together.

Of those buyers, 26% indicated they will be taking care of an aging parent, and 14% said they want to spend time with an aging parent. These numbers do not come as a surprise. According to Pew Research Center, 64 million Americans (20% of the population) lived in a multigenerational household in 2016 (Last numbers available).

An increasing number of studies affirm the benefits of being part of a multigenerational household. These benefits aren’t just for the grandchildren, but for the grandparents as well. According to these two resources:

 

The University of Oxford

“Children who are close to their grandparents have fewer emotional and behavioral problems and are better able to cope with traumatic life events, like a divorce or bullying at school”.

 

Boston College

“Researchers found that emotionally close ties between grandparents and adult grandchildren reduced depressive symptoms in both groups”.

This research gives helpful insight into why 41% of Americans are in the market to buy a multigenerational home.

If you are looking just for the right property in DC Ranch today, I would be happy to consult with you and bring you my experience and expertise in the DC Ranch Community to help you make the right the decision    

Today I would like to speak to you about Starting the Search for Your Dream Home? Here Are 5 Tips!

 

In today’s real estate market, low inventory dominates the conversation in many areas of the country. It can often be frustrating to be a first-time homebuyer if you aren’t prepared.

In a realtor.com article entitled, “How to Find Your Dream Home—Without Losing Your Mind,” the author highlights some steps that first-time homebuyers can take to help carry their excitement of buying a home throughout the whole process.

 

1. Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage Before You Start Your Search

One way to show you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage before starting your search. Even if you are in a market that is not as competitive, understanding your budget will give you the confidence of knowing whether or not your dream home is within your reach.

This step will also help you narrow your search based on your budget and won’t leave you disappointed if the home you tour, and love, ends up being outside your budget!

 

2. Know the Difference Between Your ‘Must-Haves’ and ‘Would-Like-To-Haves’

Do you really need that farmhouse sink in the kitchen to be happy with your home choice? Would a two-car garage be a convenience or a necessity? Could the ‘man cave’ of your dreams be a future renovation project instead of a make-or-break right now?

Before you start your search, list all the features of a home you would like and then qualify them as ‘must-haves’, ‘should-haves’, or ‘absolute-wish list’ items. This will help keep you focused on what’s most important.

 

3. Research and Choose a Neighborhood You Want to Live In

Every neighborhood has its own charm. Before you commit to a home based solely on the house itself, the article suggests test-driving the area. Make sure that the area meets your needs for “amenities, commute, school district, etc. and then spend a weekend exploring before you commit.”

 

4. Pick a House Style You Love and Stick to It

Evaluate your family’s needs and settle on a style of home that would best serve those needs. Just because you’ve narrowed your search to a zip code, doesn’t mean that you need to tour every listing in that zip code.

An example from the article says, “if you have several younger kids and don’t want your bedroom on a different level, steer clear of Cape Cod–style homes, which typically feature two or more bedrooms on the upper level and the master on the main.”

 

5. Document Your Home Visits

Once you start touring homes, the features of each individual home will start to blur together. The article suggests keeping your camera handy to document what you love and don’t love about each property you visit.

Making notes on the listing sheet as you tour the property will also help you remember what the photos mean, or what you were feeling while touring the home.

 

Bottom Line

In a high-paced, competitive environment, any advantage you can give yourself will help you on your path to buying your dream home.
