March Madness

Here we are again! Another month of Available Inventory sliding backwards. This is by far the lowest inventory level I have seen in my 13 years as a realtor. Ask any agent or buyer looking for a home and they will tell you how frustrating it is. The new normal is waiting in line outside a home to get a turn to go in and view it. Desired homes go so quickly that most buyers do not even get to view a home before it goes Pending.

Pending Sales continue to climb! Month over Month we are up another 232 homes. This speaks to the decline in available inventory.

One of the things I have been watching is the median Closed Sales Price. It has been trending upward and I expected it to go over the $300K mark in a month or so. It has happened! The median Closed Sales Price is now at $307,990. This is up by $14K from last month and if we look at year over year, it is up by $56K.  Median days on Market are now at 11. We have not even hit the peak Spring market yet. May’s numbers are going to be very interesting for sure!

Bottom line: If you are wanting to sell, do it now! If you price your home correctly it will go quickly. If you are a buyer, buy now because prices are not going down so this might be your last opportunity to buy at the current price. And of course, contact me for all your buying and selling needs!

Heading into Spring

Our inventory crisis continues but will the Spring market change that? That is a good question! When I say that inventory is low, I am not saying that we have less
people selling their homes but that the market cannot keep up with the demand. If we look at the last few years we see that the number of homes sold has  actually trended up. The issue is that homes are going pending as quickly as they are going onto the market. This makes it seem like not as many sellers are listing their homes. In reality, we have as many people selling as is usual for this time of year but they go so quickly that they are never realized as available inventory. So will the Spring market change that???

I am thinking that we will see the normal volume of homes go on the market but once again, there is lots of pent up demand, so homes will continue to go quickly. My hope is that we have enough inventory to slow the bidding wars down and that buyers will be able to get the first home they make an offer on rather than the fourth or fifth.
Two trends I am watching: Median Asking Price and Median Closed Sales Price. Both are trending towards record highs. Median Asking Price is approaching the $400K mark and Median Closed Sales Price is approaching the $300K mark. My concern is that the local first time buyers are being priced out of the market as the out-of-State buyers moving here outbid them with cash. I don’t know about you but I don’t want Boise to become like Portland or Denver!

Historical Records to Start 2018

Now that January 2018 is in the books we are seeing a few historical numbers appearing in Available inventory, Pending Sales and Year over Year closed sales prices.
We will start with our Available inventory. Down again this month to a mere 1229 homes on the market. More then 77 percent of the homes on the market are vacant. For the most part these vacant homes are investment properties or new builds.
Pending sales this month are actually higher than available inventory. That is a first for me! In the 13 years I have been in real estate I have never seen the inventory lower than the pending sales.
While the number of Closed Sales was down from last month, when we look at the year over year numbers we are up by 47. The big number for me is the Closed Sales Price! Only up by $4K month over month but up by $40K year over year. That is a pretty substantial increase in sales price!
I don’t have a crystal ball to predict exactly where this market goes but it is not a bubble. The increasing prices make it feel that way but that is fueled by lack of inventory. Multiple things have factored into this: low inventory keeps potential sellers from selling, well, because no inventory, builders were conservative this time around and did not over build (now most are 9 –12 months out), and the sheer volume of people moving into Idaho grabbing up the little inventory we have. I am thinking this market will continue with low inventory and rising prices for at least another 6-9 months.

Wrapping Up the Year!

As we wrap up the year we can look back and see that two things have not really changed. Inventory is still at historical lows. Because of that, homes that hit the market went within days if not hours. The last time we saw homes moving this quick was in the bubble of 2006/2007. The difference this time is that we have less than half the inventory.
While the number of Pending Sales remain over the 1000 mark, this has been the case for the past two years. Prior to 2015, numbers were usually 800 or less. The Asking Price was up by $3K month over month.

The number of Closed Sales was down another 101 month over month and was actually down year over year as well. The Median Sold Price was down by $1K from last month but up by $23K year over year. The number of Days on Market is at 15. Normally at this time of year it should be around 24+.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope your holidays are filled with lots of family time, food and fun. Take this time to enjoy your loved ones! Time goes quickly so enjoy the time you have together!

Heading into the Holidays!

The holidays are approaching and we have not made it above the 2000 mark for available homes so far this year. I do not expect us too either! As you can see with the October numbers we are starting the decrease in inventory that is typical of this time of year and I would expect that to remain the case until at least the early Spring market of 2018.

We are also seeing the number of Pending homes going down as well. Yes, typical of this time of year but with slim pickings and increasing prices, some buyers are just sitting tight until the right home comes on the market (at the right price).

And Closed Sales follow the downward trend too! All normal for the season but we will see an uptick in Closed and Pending come the end of December. Nothing earth shattering though. The Days on Market are hanging steady at 14 days.

Hoping you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family, food and fun! I am most grateful for my clients and the many referrals I receive! My business is 100% referral and I could not do it without you! Thank you and God Bless!

Fall Market Begins!

The Fall market has begun and it looks a lot like the summer market. That is to say that not much if any increase in inventory. Prices (median) continue to stay well above the $300K, distressed properties are all but gone from the market, and homes are still going as quickly as they go on the market (in the under $350K price range that is).
The number of homes pending saw a slight pull back from last month. Down by 142 but still looking healthy for this time of year.

The number of homes that closed this month was down also from last month (-104). The closed sales price was down by -$6K month over month but was up by $23K year over year. The number of Days on Market stayed steady at 12. I am thinking that will increase a little bit as we get closer to Christmas.

As we get closer to the end of the year, I don’t see much changing between now and the end of December. Most sellers are looking at a Spring market and buyers are hoping for a good deal to hit before then! So Seller’s, if you are thinking of waiting until spring but are ready now, do it! And of course give me a call, I can help you with that!

Dog Days of Summer are Here!

The summer market is in full swing and with that we do see an increase in inventory (+104) but still have not gone over that 2000 mark! The market is doing its usual slowing of pace for the summer. Homes priced under $300K are still going quick!

We also see a slight (very slight) pull back on Pending sales, down by 25 but is still well above last year! Considering we have lower available inventory this year compared to last year, having a higher number of Pending sales speaks to the high demand.

Continuing the light seasonal pullback trend are the Closed sales. Also down month over month by–139 and interestingly down by –4 year over year. Closed sales price was down by $4K month over month but up by $26K year over year.

As we head further into August and September I do not see much changing in inventory or pricing. We are staying pretty steady. This is still a very strong sellers market so you know what I am going to say next: if you are thinking of buying or selling a home (or know someone who is) please contact me! I will be happy to help! Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

April showers…us with no Inventory!

There was some hope that with spring in full swing that the inventory would pick up but so far, not really. There have been only 88 homes added to the available homes for sale in April. That is not even a dent in what we are in need of. We are looking at historical lows when it comes to inventory for April.
Also, we are looking at historical highs for April Pending Sales. We are up by 222 month over month and for year over year, we are up by 2. The Asking price is up by $9K month over month and year over year it is up by $38K.
Closed Sales are interesting. While they are up by 45 month over month, when we look at them year over year we are down by 96. The Sold price flat month over month and up by $12K year over year. The Days on Market are ridiculous! The Median DOM is down to 7 days! Homes are moving in less than a week at this point. As we head into May/June, I actually expect to see that number go down a bit more.
Home Values are moving up fairly quickly! If you are curious to see what your home may be worth, send me an e-mail, text or call. You may be pretty surprised at how much your home is worth!

Spring has Sprung!!!

Inventory finally saw a slight uptick, picking up another 170 homes. This is still not enough to meet buyer
demand. Ask any Real Estate agent or buyer how the bidding war is going as soon as a new listing comes on. Homes are going with multiple offers and usually at least $5K-$10K over asking.
While that is great news for sellers there is a word of caution here. Just because the homes are going quickly does not mean that way overpricing it is the way to go. Appraisers are starting to push back on the numbers. Particularly if they are being financed through VA or FHA. Restrictions are a little tighter for these types of loans and what can be accepted as a comparable property is a little different as well. Also, because these loans usually require as little as 3.5% as down-payments, the appraisal value has to come in at the contract price. And that is where the problem of over bidding comes in. Most homes are priced at the top of the market right now, so bidding higher than that leaves appraisers unable to find comparable sold properties with higher values.  Honestly, I think it is a good thing that appraisers are giving the market a reality check. I, for one, do not want to see a repeat of the 2006 market that came crashing down and bottomed in 2011. If you need help with pricing your home, give me a call!

2017…

The January 2017 numbers are in and they are showing us some more historical lows and highs. Not sure how much longer the market will have this low inventory but we are down to a little over 1300 homes available in all of Ada County. The median asking price has finally gone over the $300K mark for the first time since I have been tracking it (over 7 years).

The Pending sales were slightly up in January as was the asking price. I do expect this trend to continue as we head into the Spring market.

The number of Closed sales was down by 273 homes from December. However, it is up from the numbers of January 2016. The Sales price was actually down by $5K month over month and more surprisingly, down by $2K year over year.

Are we heading into a bubble? Not that I can see. In order for this market to become a bubble we would need the prices to continue to rise and the inventory to out pace the demand like it did in 2006/2007. We are a long way from being there again!
