Real Estate Market: Housing Markets – Best Recovery Bets

Home prices are poised to fall in most markets this year, but 2012 will bring a rebound. Here are the 10 large metro areas that will record the largest price gains.   Charlotte, N.C. (#9 )    • Check the home price prediction for your city Median home price: $200,000 Drop since market peak: 14.9% Forecast gain by 9/2012: 2.5% Economic confidence is swelling in this financial-services center as planned corporate expansion and relocations hold the promise of job growth, according to Emma Littlejohn, a Charlotte-based consultant to the condo-development industry. The recent announcement that the 2012 Democratic National Convention will be held there hasn’t hurt, either. The clearest indication that residential real estate is on the road back is the multiple bids that developable land is attracting. “The good properties are moving,” said Littlejohn. That will come out as a slow-but-steady rebound in home prices, according to Fiserv’s forecast, with the median home selling for about 3% more late in 2012 than it sold for 12 months earlier.

Real Estate Tips: Neighborly Advice

It’s not uncommon to hear homeowners exclaim “If we ever move from here, we’re taking the neighbors with us.” We feel strongly about those relationships we form over the balcony or barbecue pit, especially if we live far from our families. And while we can’t predict who will lend us a ladder, feed our cats or become our son’s new best friend, we can carefully consider what we’re buying in a neighborhood:
  • Time of Day – What is the neighborhood like at different times of the day? What are the traffic patterns? What about noise? Does it seem safe?
 
  • Costs and commute – Does the neighborhood have a homeowners association? What are the dues and what does that include? How long is the commute and how much will you spend on gas?
 
  • Appearance – What is the architectural style of the homes? Have they been maintained? Are there mature trees and landscaped common areas?
 
  • Connectivity – What is nearby? Think about shopping, restaurants, worship facilities and banks. Can you walk or bike anywhere?
 
  • Schools – The schoolhouse at the end of the street is a priority consideration. Even if you don’t have children, the quality of the school will greatly affect resale value.
  Poet Robert Frost once said “Good fences make good neighbors.” But when you’re choosing a neighborhood, peek over the fences and take a closer look. Do your research, ask questions – and find your fit.

Real Estate Market: WHAT IMPACT DO FORECLOSURES HAVE ON MY HOME’S VALUE?

 

We are often asked this question by homeowners – those considering a sale as well as those curious about their neighborhood values.  The answer is … “It depends”.

 

If you live in a community with few to no foreclosure activity, the chances are you will be minimally affected by this situation.  Unless other sales in the neighborhood were distressed (such as short sales) the history of activity and pricing will be represented by transactions between traditional sellers and buyers and the values will mirror the overall market.  This does not necessarily mean your values have or will remain the same, it simply means the values will be in line with the overall market in the region.

 

If you live in a community where foreclosure activity is present, there could be an effect on values in your neighborhood.  Typically, appraisers (and buyers) will discount a single foreclosure in determining values for other active homes on the market.  However, if there are several recent foreclosures, the appraiser (and buyers) will typically use those sales as “comps” in the market.  Those comps are typically lower than traditional sales and will impact the prices accordingly.

 

To put this foreclosure matter into perspective, consider the following.  Nearly one-third of all homes in the U.S. carry no mortgage.  So, when you hear that the foreclosure rate is nearing five percent of all mortgages, that number excludes homes without mortgages and the actual rate of all homes is lower.  Also remember, more than 90% of all borrowers remain current on their mortgage payments.

 

Are you interested in knowing whether your neighborhood prices are affected by foreclosure activity, please call or e-mail us.  We will be happy to do an analysis of the market and report back with specific details.

 

Lastly, if you are interested in knowing about real estate activity in your neighborhood, we have a great new tool called, “Market Report” that summarizes all active, pending and sold properties with links to detail pages, mapping tools and other statistics.  This e-mail report can be sent monthly and the feedback from our clients has been awesome.  If you are interested in receiving this valuable tool, please give us a call or email.

 Sincerely, The Lee Ann Miller Team
