September 2017 RE/MAX Housing Report

Available homes for sale across the country increased only slightly in August. This entire summer’s seen strong demand and weak inventory, resulting in listings with short shelf lives and quick sales.

The September RE/MAX National Housing Report shows August sales slightly exceeding July, but slightly trailing August 2016, which remains the best August in the report’s 9-year history. There were 3.9% fewer homes for sale month to month and 13.7% year to year, driving the fastest listing-to-sale time ever seen in August. And they’re selling for 5.4% more than last year.

If you’re thinking about selling, it’s still a strong market. If you’re hunting for homes, you’ll continue to experience very limited inventory and increased competition. But competition makes us sharper and navigating with an agent is the best way forward these days.

August 2017 RE/MAX Housing Report

What an interesting real estate market compared to last year at this time!

According to the August RE/MAX National Housing Report, here are the facts:

Homes for sale down 14%
Time on market down 8 days
Sale prices up 7.4%

These conditions, combined with low inventory, results in fewer home sales than July last year (-0.8%).

If you're considering selling your home for top dollar, but reluctant because tight inventory may impact your buying decisions, we understand - and can help guide you!

Of course, our local market has its own nuances. Reach out to RE/MAX Flagstaff anytime and we can help you navigate this interesting market.

July 2017 RE/MAX Housing Report


First Half of 2017 Ends with Record Sales and Prices Nationwide

As the summer heats up, so does the U.S. housing market. The July RE/MAX National Housing Report brings great insights for buyers, for sellers, and for homeowners.

The combination of increased sales and a record low inventory resulted in higher sales prices. Sellers continue to benefit from less competition, getting top-dollar for their homes. As a result, overall sales are at a record high.

But buyers shouldn’t be discouraged. Mortgage rates are still relatively low and the market may be taking a positive turn for you.

If you've had any thoughts of buying or selling, contact me today. I'd be happy to think through your situation with you.

June 2017 RE/MAX Housing Report

After an unexpected cooling period in April, the U.S. housing market shot up to post-recession records for the month of May according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report. 

 

More people entered the market this month and as a result homes are flying off the market at a record pace in May. This reduction in 6 days on market represents a growing need for inventory, even as interest rates tick up, they currently do not have the power to cool this hot market.

 

Appreciation on home values saw another growth period in May versus the month before. So as a potential seller, your home may be more valuable than ever. Understanding home value trends is just one of many dynamics in today’s market that I can help you grasp. Knowledge is power here, whether you are looking to buy, sell, or even just get an update on one of your most valuable assets.

 

Feel free to reach out for advice on this dynamic market. 

 

At RE/MAX Flagstaff, our dedicated REALTORS® are driven to serve you and are committed to success. Please let us know how we can assist you with your real estate needs. Call us at (386) 246-8585.
