Here Comes a Housing Boom!

The housing market has leaped head first into recovery mode! Recent housing numbers show that the S&P Case-Shiller Index is rising more quickly on an annual basis than it has since 2006, existing-home sales have experienced 12 months of year-over-year price increases and new home sales are 29% higher than they were a year ago.

A new survey shows that the housing market will continue its upward trend. The study interviewed renters between the ages of 18 and 34 and found that 65% of respondent’s intentions to buy homes had increased over the past year.  So join in on the trend and check our website at www.wendywillis.net!

Spring Pattern

It’s a common pattern this spring: There are too many potential buyers and too few sellers, resulting in bidding battles in many Boston-area neighborhoods. And that, in turn, is starting to drive up prices overall.
Real estate specialists attributed the surge in would-be buyers to historically low mortgage rates and rising consumer confidence as the Massachusetts economy slowly blossoms. The house-hunting frenzy is a good sign, they said, but until more people decide it’s finally time to sell, no one expects the market to really take off.
So, it’s a perfect time to contact us at http://www.WendyWillis.net to get your home on the market!

After years of wild swings, the U.S. housing market is slowly returning to normal

2012 was the first year since 1997 that the housing market has resembled something [close to] normal!

By the end of this year, it is predicted that home prices will be heading in a higher direction. There are many positive trends in today’s market. Prices are extremely affordable and mortgage rates are at or near historic lows. Overall, the market is expected to have a stronger demand for housing, and have a positive impact on the economy.

Buyers & Sellers

The conventional wisdom is that buyers and sellers go together like oil and water. That is to say, they don’t go together at all. Some say they are at odds simply by virtue of sitting across the bargaining table from one another, which – along with negotiation and legal issues that are par for the home buying course – create the presumption that they want totally different things.

The prime example of competing buyer and seller interests is this: the buyer wants to pay as little as possible, while the seller wants to get top dollar for the place. But there is another way to look at this entirely. In fact, there’s a point of view from which the buyer and the seller want exactly the same thing: the buyer wants to buy the place, and the seller wants to sell it to them! Many buyers and sellers act cooperatively to achieve just that result.

Are you thinking of buying or selling?  The Wendy Willis Group can help

What a difference a year makes

Top real estate agents on the North Shore are in agreement that the market has vastly improved from a year ago.  Inventory is low, which creates a big demand on the buyer side, and in turn, creates a higher dollar value for the sellers.  The low inventory is driving up both the number of offers, as well as the pace at which houses are sold.  When the market had ample listings, they would sit out there for a long period, as people had time to give it thought.  Now, there isn’t that much time to think about it.  You have a very small window, so it’s time to put your best foot forward!
