Hire a Pro

If You’re Thinking of Selling Your House This Fall, Hire a Pro

Top reasons to hire a pro to sell your houseShould you hire a pro? Today’s market is at a turning point, making it more essential than ever to work with a real estate professional. Not only will a trusted real estate advisor keep you updated and help you make the best decisions based on current market trends, but they’re also experts in managing the many aspects of selling your house.

Here are five key reasons why working with a real estate professional makes sense today.

1. A Professional Follows the Latest Market Trends

With higher mortgage rates and moderating buyer demand, conditions are changing and staying on top of the latest market information is crucial when you sell.

Working with an expert real estate advisor helps ensure you can stay updated on what’s happening. They know your local area and follow national trends too. More importantly, they’ll know what this data means for you, and as the market shifts, they’ll be able to help you navigate it and make your best decision.

2. A Professional Helps Maximize Your Pool of Buyers

Your agent’s role in bringing in buyers is important. Real estate professionals have a large variety of tools at their disposal, such as social media followers, agency resources, and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to ensure your house is viewed by the most buyers. Investopedia explains why it’s risky to sell on your own without the network an agent provides:

“You don’t have relationships with clients, other agents, or a real estate agency to bring the largest pool of potential buyers to your home. A smaller pool of potential buyers means less demand for your property, which can translate into waiting longer to sell your home and possibly not getting as much money as your house is worth.”

3. A Professional Understands the Fine Print

Today, more disclosures and regulations are mandatory when selling a house. That means the number of legal documents you’ll need to juggle is growing. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) explains it best, saying:

“Selling a home typically requires a variety of forms, reports, disclosures, and other legal and financial documents. . . . Also, there’s a lot of jargon involved in a real estate transaction; you want to work with a professional who can speak the language.”

A real estate professional knows exactly what needs to happen, what all the fine print means, and how to work through it efficiently. They’ll help you review the documents and avoid any costly missteps that could occur if you try to handle them on your own.

4. A Professional Is a Trained Negotiator

If you sell without a professional, you’ll also be solely responsible for all the negotiations. That means you’ll have to coordinate with:

  • The buyer, who wants the best deal possible
  • The buyer’s agent, who will use their expertise to advocate for the buyer
  • The inspection company, which works for the buyer and will almost always find concerns with the house
  • The appraiser, who assesses the property’s value to protect the lender

In today’s changing market, buyers are regaining some negotiation power as bidding wars ease. Instead of going toe-to-toe with all the above parties alone, lean on an expert. They’ll know what levers to pull, how to address everyone’s concerns, and when you may want to get a second opinion.

5. A Professional Knows How To Set the Right Price for Your House

If you sell your house on your own, you may be more likely to overshoot your asking price. That could mean your house will sit on the market because you priced it too high for where the market is now. Today, pricing a house requires even more expertise to ensure you get it right. NAR explains it like this:

“A great real estate agent will look at your home with an unbiased eye, providing you with the information you need to enhance marketability and maximize price.”

Real estate professionals know the ins and outs of how to price your house accurately and competitively. To do so, they compare your house to recently sold homes in your area and factor in the current condition of your home. These steps are key to making sure it’s set to move quickly while still getting you the highest possible final sale price.

Bottom Line

Whether it’s following local and national trends and guiding you through a shifting market or pricing your house right, a real estate agent has essential insights you’ll want to rely on throughout the transaction. Don’t go at it alone.  If you plan to sell your house, let’s connect.

Golf Community Highlights

SWFL Golf Community Highlights

swfl golf community insightsAre you looking for the latest SWFL golf community highlights? We continue to see waitlists grow in “equity” golf communities or golf communities which require an upfront initiation fee for a golf membership. In reality, there are very few clubs still offering “equity” memberships. Most clubs have shifted to a membership model which requires a non-refundable upfront initiation fee.

In addition to “equity” golf communities, Southwest Florida also has a second type of golf community which we refer to as a bundled golf community. This means the golf membership is bundled or deeded to the property and your membership dues are a part of your annual community fees. There is no upfront initiation fee in a bundled golf community. Provided you purchase a property which includes a golf membership, you have immediate golf privileges. It’s important to note, in some bundled golf communities a property only includes a social membership. Learn more about bundled golf communities…

There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of membership and community. With more than 150 golf communities in the area it is a challenge to navigate all the various options for golf membership. That’s where we come in. Our vast relationships with all the golf communities from Naples to Sarasota allow us to serve our clients by making the home-buying or selling process an easy and enjoyable one.Living the Golf Lifestyle of your dreams

While it may seem overwhelming at first, once we know how often you play, other desired club amenities, property type and a price range we can help you narrow the list of clubs down to a handful that will potentially offer you the Florida golf lifestyle you are looking for.

Below you will find highlights for the latest real estate statistics for single-family golf homes and golf condos in our area for the past 12 months.

Sarasota Real Estate Review

Sarasota Real Estate Review

Sarasota Real Estate ReviewThe latest Sarasota real estate review showed 974 properties sold for just over $604 Million during August for the North Port, Sarasota, and Bradenton areas. Like the rest of Southwest Florida, inventory more than doubled compared to the same time last year.

However, it is important to note inventory was extremely low last year. Like the previous month, even though supply has increased, the greater Sarasota area ended the month with just a 2 months’ supply of properties for sale. When August 2022 housing inventory is compared to August to of 2019 before the pandemic, it is down 43 percent. Since a healthy market would be at least 6 months’ worth of homes for sale, Sellers are still in the driver’s seat.

Additionally, the median sales price continued its upward trend compared to last year. Although both single family homes and condos saw double-digit increases in the median sales price compared, the median price was lower than this June and July of this year. The trend in median sales prices combined with increased inventory are indications we have started the journey towards a balanced market. The question is, how long will it take?

Whether you are buying or selling a home, it is important to keep track of local market trends. What is happening in resort destinations such as Sarasota is quite different than the suburbs of a major metropolitan area. If you have questions about a specific area or neighborhood, contact us for more information.

Sarasota Real Estate Review – Single Family Homes

Sarasota Real Estate Review Single Family Homes

 

August 2022 versus August 2021 Single Family Home Highlights:

  • Closed sales decreased 16.8 percent going from 815 transactions down to 678 sales.
  • Pending sales decreased 15.1 percent down from 794 last August versus 674 this August.
  • Inventory rose 107.2 percent up to 1,577 properties for sale compared to this same time last year when just 761 homes were for sale.
  • New listings decreased from 919 down to 847 which was a 7.8 percent decrease.
  • Median days on market increased to 14 days which was up from 6 days during last August.
  • Available inventory of single-family homes ended August with 2 months’ supply of homes available for sale which was up 150 percent increase over this time last year.

While it is good news for buyers that inventory has increased over this time last year, it did n0t change much from July when there were 1,550 single family homes for sale compared to August when there were 1,577 active listings. And when you compare it to 2019, we had 2,365 homes for sale. With the low supply and high demand, sellers continue to have the advantage in the Sarasota housing market.

Yet, this market will not last forever and it has clearly changed over the past couple of months as evidenced by the increase in inventory and days on market. If you are considering selling a home in the Sarasota area, there’s still time to maximize the value of your home in today’s market.

Thinking of selling? Call, email or text us today – 239.370.0892 for a complimentary market analysis.

On the flip side, if you have been sitting on the sidelines waiting to buy a property, now may be a good time to start watching for properties which meet your criteria. New listings are hitting the market every day, we can help you with automatic property alerts.

Sarasota Real Estate Review – Condos and Townhomes

Sarasota Real Estate Review Condos

 

August 2022 versus August 2021 Condo Highlights:

  • Condo sales decreased 13.2 percent going from 341 real estate transactions down to 296 sales.
  • Pending sales decreased 6.9 percent down from 332 last August to 309 this August.
  • Inventory increased 100.7 percent up to 588 condos for sale compared to last August when there were only 293 units for sale.
  • New listings decreased from 352 down to 333 which was a 5.4 percent decrease.
  • Median days to contract was 14 days which was up from 6 days last year.
  • Available inventory of condos ended August with a 1.6 months’ supply of properties available for sale which was a 166.7 percent increase.

Between closed sales and pending sales, inventory remains extremely low. Unlike the previous month, the number of new listings declined putting further pressure on an already limited supply of condos for sale. As a result, the median sales price continued its upward trend, ending the month with a 19 percent increase year-over-year. Yet, the median prices were lower than both June and July.

Bottom line, it remains a seller’s market for both condos and single-family homes. So now would be a great time to cash in on the high buyer demand. You might be surprised to learn how much your home is worth in today’s market. What is my home worth…

August Housing Market Update

Lee County August Housing Market Update

Florida homes for saleThe August housing market update for Lee County showed 1,630 properties sold for just over $862 Million during the month. The luxury market remained strong with 116 properties which sold at or above $1 Million.

On a positive note, similar to last month, we saw a significant increase in inventory which was up just over 90 percent compared to the same time last year. However, it’s important to note, inventory levels are still well below normal levels for this time of year. In August of 2019, prior to the pandemic, there were 7,784 properties for sale. This year, even though inventory has double year-over-year, we still only have 4,534 properties on the market.

Also, there’s just over a 2 months’ supply of homes for sale which means we are still in a Seller’s market. Is it possible we’ll double inventory again? It is possible, however if you look at the change in inventory from July to August, there was only a 2 percent increase in the number of properties for sale.

The good news for buyers is there are more properties to chose from and in most cased you have more time to try to find the right property. If you are buying, it’s important to know it is still a Seller’s market and homeowners continue to sell their properties close to list price.

Finally, Sellers continued to adjust their “list prices” to reflect current market values which is why you may have seen price reductions. However, it is rare to see a property sell for less than previously closed sales.

Lee County August Housing Market Update – Single Family Homes

Lee County August Housing Market Update Single Family Homes

 

August 2022 versus August 2021 Single Family Home Highlights:

  • Closed sales decreased 14.5 percent going from 1,363 transactions down to 1,166 sales.
  • Pending sales decreased 20.1 percent down from 1,612 last August versus 1,288 this August.
  • Inventory increased 97.3 percent up to 3,481 properties for sale compared to this same time last year when 1,764 homes were for sale.
  • New listings decreased from 1,602 down to 1,553 which was a 3.1 percent decline.
  • Median days on market increased to 21 days which was a 61.5 percent increase versus August of 2021.
  • Available inventory of single-family homes ended August with a 2.5 months’ supply of homes available for sale which was up from 1.1 months’ supply during August of 2021.

Since-family homes showed a modest increase in the median sales price, up 16.9 percent over August of last year and a slight increase of 0.2% over July of this year. For Sellers, the peak appears to have come and gone. However, you still have the opportunity to sell at a premium price as sellers are still getting 97.4% of their asking price.

It’s worth noting it is rare to see multiple offers and bids above list price. And the days on market continue to grow, especially for overpriced properties. Buyers are now taking their time in evaluating properties to ensure they find one that will fit their lifestyle and at a price they can justify. Call, email, or text us today to discuss your home’s value in today’s market.

Lee County August Housing Market Update – Condos and Townhomes

Lee County August Housing Market Update Condos

 

August 2022 versus August 2021 Condo Highlights:

  • Condo sales decreased 26.2 percent going from 629 real estate transactions down to 464 sales.
  • Pending sales decreased 25.1 percent down from 661 last August to 495 this August.
  • Inventory increased 96.8 percent up to 1,053 condos for sale compared to last August when there were only 535 units for sale.
  • New listings decreased from 598 down to 560 which was a 6.4 percent decrease.
  • Median days to contract increased to 18 days which represented a 38.5 percent increase versus August of 2021.
  • Available inventory of condos ended August with a 1.7 months’ supply of properties available for sale which was a 183.3 percent increase!

Despite the increase in inventory, the Lee County Condo market remains a strong Seller’s market. The number of condos for sale is still extremely low at just a 1.7 month’s supply which was only a one-tenth increase over July. A balanced market would be a 6-7 months’ supply of homes for sale. Similar to the last couple of months, due to low inventory both pending and closed sales were down year-over-year.

Although the median price for condos was up 23.1 percent compared to this time last year, it fell 4.5 percent compared to July of this year. The market has clearly changed. There’s more inventory, days on market continue to build and there are many buyers and sellers sitting on the sidelines waiting to see what is going to happen with the economy over the next couple of months.

If you are a buyer it may be time to start taking a closer look at homes for sale in neighborhoods which might fit your criteria. Depending on the area, you may be surprised at the number of properties already available. To stay up to date sign up for automatic property alerts.

Bottom line, it is a seller’s market for both condos and single-family homes. So now would be a great time to cash in on the high buyer demand. You might be surprised to learn how much your home is worth in today’s market. Wondering what the benefits are of using an agent sell your home? What is my home worth…

Naples August Real Estate Recap

2022 Naples August Real Estate Recap

Naples Luxury Home StatisticsThe Naples August real estate recap showed 669 properties sold for just over $990 Million. The largest sale was for $27,367,069 in Port Royal. Additionally, the luxury market remained strong as evidenced by the 148 properties that sold at or above $1 Million. How does this compare to the previous month? August saw higher sales volume than July when 662 properties sold for $950 Million and 139 homes sold at or above $1 Million.

Naples Buyers and Sellers are asking us daily, “Is Naples on Sale?” or “Is it now a Buyers market?”. The answer is no, the Naples housing market is not on sale and it is not a buyer’s market, at least not yet.

If you’ve been following the national headlines, you are probably asking how I can possibly say Naples isn’t on sale. Ultimately, housing is local in nature and what is happening in Naples and other resort towns doesn’t mirror national trends according to the data.

Locally, throughout Florida and nationally, the median sales price increased during August over last year during the same time. In the Naples area, the median sales price was up 25% for single family homes and 34 percent for condos. Nationally, the overall median sales price was up 19.9 percent.

So, while year over year data is similar locally and nationally, when you start to look at recent month over month data, there is a difference between local trends and national trends. In Naples the median price for single family homes fell by less than 1 percent and condos rose 6.8 percent. Conversely, the national median sales price has fallen for two consecutive months.

2022 Naples August Real Estate Recap

Additionally, our inventory remains historically low. During 2019, before the pandemic, we had 4,917 properties for sale compared to just 2,140 this August. This is less than half of what we traditionally have for sale this time of year and this is our slow season. Also, inventory has fallen even further since the end of the month. We are now down to 2,124 properties for sale. As long as inventory remains low and demand high, prices are expected to continue to rise.

Naples August Real Estate Recap

Naples August Real Estate Recap

August 2022 versus August 2021 Highlights

  • Closed sales decreased 37 percent compared to August of last year.
  • Overall pending sales decreased 19 percent versus the same time in 2021.
  • Inventory increased 71 percent up from 1,249 homes to 2,140 homes for sale.
  • Average days on market increased 35 percent up to 31 days.

In all, there were 488 single-family homes and 324 condos sold for a total of 669 sales during the month which was a 37 percent decrease over last year.

Once again, sales of both single family homes and condos sold close to or slightly above list price. Single-family homes came in at 98.9 percent compared to 97.9 percent this time last year.  Condos were at 100.4 percent versus 97.5 percent in 2021. This is another indication the Naples housing market is not on sale.

For Sellers, the peak appears to have come and gone. However, sellers still have the opportunity to sell at a premium price.

Why is The Naples Housing Market Different?

There are numerous factors which continue to make Naples an attractive destination for homeownership. We all know the golden rule of real estate “location, location, location!”, Naples is a prime example of how the golden rule impacts property values:

  • Tax-Friendly – no state income tax and low property taxes
  • Lower cost of living relative to major metropolitan cities throughout the country
  • Weather – Approximately 264 sunny days per year
  • Health and Wellness – World-class healthcare combined with numerous outdoor activities such as golf, pickleball, tennis, biking, and more!
  • Safety – Ranked the safest place to live by U.S. News and World Report
  • Work from home flexibility
  • Low density compared to other areas of Florida (only one-third of Collier County can be developed due to the Everglades, nature preserves and building regulations)

Demand continues to be high as evidenced with the amount of property showings. There were 5,000 more showings during August of 2022 than the pre-pandemic levels of 2019 which is more than we would expect at this time of year.

All that said, the market has slowed, but this is typical and expected this time of year.  We do believe the days of multiple offers above list price are over given the increase in days on market and over-priced properties correcting to established market levels.  As of late it is rare when properties sell below these levels.

There are a number of large moving parts in the world around us at the moment, with this uncertainty many buyers have put themselves on the sidelines.  If you are one of these folks, this may be a good time to research the communities, and country club or clubs you’d ultimately like to be a part of.

Along the way and while we wait we can help you keep an eye on the market with a custom property search that is fully automated or sign up for automatic property alerts.  Please feel free to call us any time to set up the alerts for you based on your criteria, its an excellent tool to have on your belt!

Top Reasons Homeowners Are Selling

Top Reasons Homeowners Are Selling Their Houses Right Now

Top Reasons Homeowners Are SellingWhat are the top reasons homeowners are selling their home now? A desire for different amenities is the top reason sited for the reason homeowners are selling now.

On the other hand, some people believe there’s a group of homeowners who may be reluctant to sell their houses because they don’t want to lose the historically low mortgage rate they have on their current home. You may even have the same hesitation if you’re thinking about selling your house.

Data shows 51% of homeowners have a mortgage rate under 4% as of April this year. And while it’s true mortgage rates are higher than that right now, there are other non-financial factors to consider when it comes to making a move. In other words, your mortgage rate is important, but you may have other things going on in your life that make a move essential, regardless of where rates are today. As Jessica Lautz, Vice President of Demographics and Behavioral Insights at the National Association of Realtors (NAR), explains:

Home sellers have historically moved when something in their lives changed – a new baby, a marriage, a divorce or a new job. . . .”

So, if you’re thinking about selling your house, it may help to explore the other reasons homeowners are choosing to make a move today. The 2022 Summer Sellers Survey by realtor.com asked recent home sellers why they decided to sell. The visual below breaks down how those homeowners responded:

Top Reasons Homeowners Are Selling Their Houses Right Now | MyKCM

As the visual shows, an appetite for different features or the fact that their current home could no longer meet their needs topped the list for recent sellers. Additionally, remote work and whether or not they need a home office or are tied to a specific physical office location also factored in, as did the desire to live close to their loved ones.

The realtor.com survey summarizes the findings like this:

The primary reason homeowners decided to sell in the last year was the realization that, after so much time spent at home, they wanted different features and amenities, such as walkability, outdoor space, pool, etc. . . . 

If you, like the homeowners they surveyed, find yourself wanting features, space, or amenities your current home just can’t provide, it may be time to consider listing your house for sale.

Even with today’s mortgage rates, your lifestyle needs may be enough to motivate you to make a change. The best way to find out what’s right for you is to partner with a trusted real estate professional who can provide expert guidance and advice throughout the process. They can help walk you through your options, so you can make a confident decision based on what matters most to you and your loved ones.

Bottom Line

While the financial reasons for moving are important, there’s often far more to consider. Non-financial reasons can also be a significant motivating factor. If you need help weighing the pros and cons of selling your house, let’s connect today.

Will My House Still Sell in Today’s Market

Will My House Still Sell in Today’s Market?

Will My House Still Sell in today's marketIf recent headlines about the housing market cooling and buyer demand moderating have you worried you’ve missed your chance to sell, here’s what you need to know. Buyer demand hasn’t disappeared, it’s just eased from the peak intensity we saw over the past two years.

Buyer Demand Then and Now

During the pandemic, mortgage rates hit record lows, and that spurred a significant rise in buyer demand. This year, as rates increased due to factors like rising inflation, buyer demand pulled back or softened as a result. The latest data from ShowingTime confirms this trend (see graph below):

Will My House Still Sell in Today’s Market? | MyKCM

The orange bars in the graph above represent the last few months of data and the clear cooldown in the volume of home showings the market has seen since mortgage rates started to rise. But context is important. To get the full picture of where today’s demand stands, let’s look at the July data for the past six years (see graph below):

Will My House Still Sell in Today’s Market? | MyKCM

This second visual makes it clear that, while moderating compared to the frenzy in 2020 and 2021, showing activity is still beating pre-pandemic levels – and those pre-pandemic years were great years for the housing market. That goes to show there’s still demand if you sell your house today.

What That Means for You When You Sell

The key to selling in a changing market is understanding where the housing market is now. It’s not the same market we had last year or even earlier this year, but that doesn’t mean the opportunity to sell has passed.

While things have cooled a bit, it’s still a sellers’ market. If you work with a trusted local expert to price your house at the current market valuethe demand is still there, and it should sell quickly. According to a recent survey from realtor.com, 92% of homeowners who sold in August reported being satisfied with the outcome of their sale.

Bottom Line

Buyer demand hasn’t disappeared, it’s just moderated this year. If you’re ready to sell your house today, let’s connect so you have expert insights on how the market has shifted and how to plan accordingly for your sale.

Is Now the Time To Buy a New Construction Home in Southwest Florida?

Should I use a realtor if I'm buying new constructionThe short answer is yes. Inventory of both new and re-sale homes has increased in Southwest Florida. As a result, buyers have more options to choose from. At the same time, overall inventory still remains half of what it normally is this time of year. Due to the increase in competition, some new home builders are starting to offer incentives and sellers are accepting offers for less than list price. However, we have yet to see recent sales fall below previously closed sales.

If you’re considering a purchase, let’s connect to discuss your needs – 239.370.0892.
