Explore these graphs to help understand the economics of real estate.   

Inflation affects Mortgage Rates

Banks and Investors want a return greater than annual inflation.
Add 2 to 3% to Inflation to predict Mortgage Rate trends.

Mortgage Rates are below the historical average of 7.74%.  Secure your mortgage now to lock in your housing cost.

Mortgage Rates affect Affordability

As mortgage rates have increased, the percentage of income to qualify has returned to prior historical levels.

Since 2000 – Housing has remained parallel with average hourly wages and has NOT increased as fast as college tuition, medical services, child care, food and beverages.

It’s time to get where you want to be.

The rate of change in prices up or down is impacted by market forces and government intervention.  Regulation and Federal Reserve Policy… hard to predict.

Timing the market...

Homes sell year-round. Seasonally more buyers enter the market in February and March; with a large portion of homes closing in April and May.

We keep hearing about Inventory shortages...

More homes were sold in 2020 than the prior peak of 2005.

Pricing Matters… the Market moves

Every year the market surges in the Spring and declines in the Fall. Overall trend is up.

If you buy and sell at the same point in time seasonal variation does not matter as much.

How should we price our listing?

Note: If you over shoot the market, offers tend to come in below list price.

When a property is priced right, buyers see the value and offers are at, or above the list price. When you price your home accurately you actually get the best price!
