Looking Good for 2012...Home Sales are Up!

According to the National Association of Realtors, the latest numbers for pending sales indicate for the second month in a row that the index is up.  The index is used to provide general insight to where the housing market is heading. Because new home sales reflect ‘big ticket’ items that require construction and investment, the housing market is often considered an indicator of the direction of the economy as a whole. Growth in the housing market usually means subsequent spending, generating demand for goods and services and the employees who provide them.

The good news is that the index has broken 100.  The only other time this has happened since the housing boom collapsed was during the homeowner tax credit incentive.  Knowing that the index has returned to that level a year since the credit has been in effect means the housing market is strengthening completely on its own, without any stimulus.

Not only are home sales up, but so are housing starts and home pricing are stabilizing in many markets, even increasing in some.  We still have a ways to go in terms of a recovery, but it looks like we may be heading in the right direction.

Ready, Set, SELL! Reasons to List Your House NOW.

We hear it all the time.

"We're going to wait to list our house in Spring."

"There's not as many people looking to buy right now, so we'll wait a few more months."

Nooooo!  Don't wait!  The time is NOW and let me break it down for you:

1.  Serious Buyers:  There may be fewer of them, but the ones that are out there are very serious about making a purchase...they are there to buy.
2.  Less Competition:  The current inventory of homes for sale in the KC area is at a 5 year low.  Because there are so many people out there with the "We'll wait 'til Spring" mentality, that means there is fewer competition in your local market than any other time of the year.
3.  Interest Rates:  Today's interest rates are still low, giving buyers more spending power and you the same advantage when you begin shopping for your next home.
