Winter Market Update

Winter Market Update

The winter season has very quickly descended upon the Sunapee Region and faster than some had hoped for. As outdoor enthusiasts, we tend to enjoy the early snow, but we know that it can also cause a bit of angst for those who are looking to sell their home. With the holiday season in full swing, and people settling into their cold-weather routines, we began to receive a myriad of questions from our selling clients. Below are a few of the most common questions that we hear:

Should I list my home now? If the time is right for you to sell your home and move on to a new adventure, then the winter market can provide a good opportunity to take that next step. The number one benefit to listing in the winter is the low inventory rate and lack of competition. As youll see in the chart below, inventory levels dip considerably in the winter months. When it comes to value, historically, there is an increase in the difference of average list price to average sales price and an increase in the average days on market.

Should I take my home off the market? The answer to this question is it depends. For some, the thought of having to keep up with showing requests around the holiday season seems like a nightmare. If this is you, and youre not in a rush to sell, then a break might be an OK option. However, I often caution clients against taking their home off the market and heres why. This time of year inventory tends to be at the lowest levels which means far less competition than over the summer months. Buyers are still looking and with interest rates on the rise, they are making decisions.

Will buyer interest weaken over the holidays? Yes and No. Its true that some buyers may put a hold on their search for fear of making a move during the winter months, but generally speaking, serious and motivated buyers will continue house hunting. Others will take advantage of holiday time off and become even more committed to locating their new home. They may also take advantage of being around friends and family to gather opinions and make their decision. (While writing this article, we realized that all of us in our office bought homes in the winter months!)

Do I need to lower my asking price? I often respond to this question with, the season does not dictate the value of your home, the market does. Regardless of the time of year, the listing price of your home should be based off of current and relevant market datameaning comparable properties that are on the market, have recently sold and are under contract. If you listed your home in the summer or fall, and youre still on the market, then it would be beneficial to request an updated market analysis from your Realtor to make sure your home is listed at an appropriate value.

Should I wait for the spring market? Serious buyers dont stop their home search just because its cold outsidewith the evolution of technology and instant access to property listings via mobile apps, tablets and smart phones, buyers continue their research with ease. Additionally, if you will also be on the buying side once your home sells, you may benefit from the slightly lower than average home sales prices. Another factor to keep an eye on are mortgage interest rates which have been slowly creeping up in 2018.

If you decide to list your home for sale this winter, it is important to take extra care in property maintenance and staging. Here are some recommended tips to make the best first impression with potential buyers.

Tips when selling your home in the winter

  • Keep your driveway and walkways clear of snow and ice. Have a shovel handy for your realtor if its snowing the day there is a showing.
  • Pay special attention to mudrooms and entryways by clearly defining where winter coats and boots will go and making it an easy transition to come in from the outside.
  • Create a warm (65+ degrees) and inviting atmosphere. Show off how cozy that wood stove or gas fireplace makes your home. Replace lightbulbs that have gone out and bring in extra lights if needed to brighten up darker rooms.
  • Dont ignore basic home maintenance. Make sure boilers and furnaces are in good working order and up-to-date on inspections. Check for door and window drafts, replace cracked weather stripping, keep up with the extra sand and salt that can easily be tracked inside.

Real Estate Update and Fall Things To Do

Is it still a sellers market? How long until the housing market shifts? Am I running out of time to sell my home and earn the best possible value? Should I wait for the market to change before buying? As the summer fades to an end and we start to enter the fall and winter seasons, these are the types of questions we are asked from our clients, customers, friends and family.

In addition to our monthly home sales stats that we normally report on, this month I also want to share some of the key economic predictions from the New England Realtor Committee conference and how they compare to what we are seeing locally. We also sought financing insight from Mascoma Bank SVP Mortgage Sales Manager, Cathy Murray.

Real Estate Market Update - September 2018

Is it still a sellers market? How long until the housing market shifts? Am I running out of time to sell my home and earn the best possible value? Should I wait for the market to change before buying? As the summer fades to an end and we start to enter the fall and winter seasons, these are the types of questions we are asked from our clients, customers, friends and family.

Recently I had the opportunity to attend the annual New England Realtor Committee conference, a two-day event filled with updates from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), economic reports, and a chance to speak with other Realtors from 6 different states about what theyre seeing in their local markets.

Because we dont have a crystal ball to see into the future, we rely on current and past market data and historical trends to best advise our clients on their home purchase or sale. In addition to the monthly local home sales data that we regularly report on, I also want to share some of the key economic predictions and data points that were shared by NAR Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun.

  • Home prices are approaching record highs with foreclosures rates close to historic lows.
  • Inventory levels have fallen for three straight years and continue to be low.
  • Buyer demand is still there, but high home prices and low inventory will lead to a sales slowdown in some of the nations most overheated real estate markets.
  • Yun speculated that interest rates will rise modestly, potentially reaching 5.5% to 6% at the end of 2019 and we shouldnt expect them to come back down to current levels.

So how does this compare when we take a look at the 16 towns that make up our local market? As youll see in the graphs below, residential inventory in 2015 was just under 900 active listings. For the same month in 2016, inventory dropped closer to 600. In 2017 the decline continued to under 600 active listing, and in July 2018, inventory clocked in around 400 residential properties for sale*.

Now, what about home sales? We are still seeing high buyer demand in our local market and home sales are trending in the opposite direction despite inventory levels. In 2015 there were 572 home sales, in 2016 that number increased to 668 and then held strong in 2017 at 666 home sales.

For the million-dollar question; Where will mortgage interests rates be in the future? we look to SVP Mortgage Sales Manager at Mascoma Bank, Cathy Murray.

I monitor several sources trying to predict the answer, says Murray. Sam Khater, Freddie Macs chief economist is one of those sources. Khater recently stated Mortgage rates are currently 0.82 percent higher than a year ago, which is the biggest year-over-year increase since May 2014. Overall, this spectacular stretch of solid job gains and low unemployment should help keep home buyer interest elevated. However, mortgage rates will likely also move up, as the Federal Reserve considers short-term rate hikes this month (September) and at future meetings.

Murray continues, We have seen a decline in the refinance volume which is extremely rate sensitive. However, nationally mortgage applications to purchase a home, which are less rate-sensitive, rose one percent last week and were four percent higher than a year ago, this is according to CNBC Business News and Finance. This validates my feelingsI dont see the recent interest rate increase as the sky is falling. Peoples lives and circumstances change. They get married, they get jobs or new jobs that require relocation in some circumstances, they have children, and unfortunately, they sometimes get divorced. These changes typically require a housing change, regardless of mortgage interest rates. We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful, prosperous and resilient area. My answer to the million-dollar question; real estate remains a good investment. Borrow responsibly.

Going back to the questions at handI do believe that it is a good time to sell. Echoing Cathy, every client we work with has their own unique reasons to buy or sell, and that decision is highly personal. Given that inventory remains low and we are still seeing a high buyer demand, if personal situations indicate the time is right, then I do encourage people to list their home for sale. Summer is beautiful in the Lake Sunapee Region, but we are fortunate to be located in a four-season destination and we generally continue to see high buyer inquiry activity throughout the fall and even winter months.

As always, if have questions regarding the Sunapee Region/New London real estate market, or if you are interested in selling or buying, please reach out at any time!
