The High Cost of Overpricing Your Huntersville Home

The word is out - we're in a seller's market!

Lots of sellers understandably want to cash in. But one thing we're seeing in the data is a STEEP drop from the original sales price when a property doesn't sell relatively quickly.

These stats are for As you can see, the average home sold in the first week went for OVER list price. 

Sold in the first month, the seller came about $10k off the original list price. But over 2 months, and the average drop was almost $40k!

 As tempting as it might be to swing for the fences, it's important for sellers to understand that the longer their property sits, the less money they'll get (not to mention the extra holding costs).

4 Reasons Why Today’s Huntersville Market is NOT 2006 All Over Again

With home prices rising again this year, some are concerned that we may be repeating the 2006 housing bubble that caused families so much pain when it collapsed. Today’s market is quite different than the bubble market of twelve years ago. There are four key metrics that explain why:
  1. Home Prices
  2. Mortgage Standards
  3. Mortgage Debt
  4. Housing Affordability
There is no doubt that home prices have reached 2006 levels in many markets across the country. However, after more than a decade, home prices should be much higher based on inflation alone.
Frank Nothaft is the Chief Economist for CoreLogic (which compiles some of the best data on past, current, and future home prices). Nothaft recently explained:
“Even though CoreLogic’s national home price index got to the same level it was at the prior peak in April of 2006, once you account for inflation over the ensuing 11.5 years, values are still about 18% below where they were.” (emphasis added)

Read the Rest of the Article at Real Estate With Roby

Home values have risen dramatically over the last twelve months. In CoreLogic’s most recent Home Price Index Report, they revealed that national home prices have increased by 6.7% year-over-year.
CoreLogic broke down appreciation even further into four price ranges, giving us a more detailed view than if we had simply looked at the year-over-year increases in national median home price.
The chart in the complete article shows the four price ranges from the report, as well as each one’s year-over-year growth from February 2017 to February 2018 (the latest data available)

Thinking of Selling? Why You Need A Pro!

Thinking of Selling Your Huntersville Home

We can help and we can also save you money.  Statistic show that using a professional will net you more money and alleviate stress in the process!
