Season for Thanksgiving…

After 6 months of slightly increased inventory, October saw a slight decrease in inventory and we are still well below October 2017 inventory of 1913 available homes. I am not expecting inventory to go up as we head into the winter months. With that in mind, we are on track for another crazy spring market.

Pending Sales continue to decrease for month over month and year over year. The pending asking price is up month over month though.

October saw an increase month over month for number of homes sold as well as year over year. The median asking price is up by $4K month over month and up by $52K year over year. Low inventory is still driving the increase in median sales price. As of now, August was the peak in median sales price at $330K.

As we head into the holiday and winter market, I expect to see inventory to continue dropping. The thought is to wait until spring to sell a home but with inventory like it is in the under $350K market, right now is probably the best time to sell. If you or someone you know is thinking of selling, PLEASE contact me!

Beginning of the summer market!

Inventory was up by another 150 homes! Finally! These are not huge increases but so needed just the same. We are still seeing multiple offers and homes going pending within hours of hitting the market, however, that is only the case in the under $350K price range. Once we get over the $500K mark, the available inventory goes up and days on market are a bit longer.

Pending sales actually saw a pull back, down by 103 month over month and the asking price was flat. The increase in inventory and the decrease in Pending sales is the result of the summer market. This happens every year! Not an anomaly, just typical!

The number of Closed Sales was up by 32 month over month, so not really much to report on there. What is worthy of noting is the year over year price difference. The median price of a home sold in June 2017 was $272,490, in June 2018 that median price is now $322,317. That is a $50K price increase! Anyone who waited until this year to buy are paying that much more!

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.

Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year! Hoping everyone’s holiday’s were happy and healthy, and that 2018 brings much health and blessings!
Active listings in the Ada County area are at record lows! I feel like I am saying this almost every month but we manage to continue to have shrinking inventory. We are at a point that the National Association of Realtors are calling this an inventory crisis! The next few months will tell us if we start to move out of it or if the shortage continues.
Speaking with other realtors from around the valley, we are all having a very similar problem, and that is no listings! Even though many sellers could easily sell for a profit, most fear not being able to find another home to move to. While this is a tough position to be in, if you are ready to move, putting your home on the market now will maximize how much you get for your home. You may have to become a renter for a little bit but you will find a home you want and you won’t feel rushed into making an offer just so you have a place to live!

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!

Summer Market Comes to an End!

With the summer market coming to an end we see inventory not budging at all. We have not broken the 2000 mark and at this point I am not sure we will for the rest of this year. Median asking price continues to go up though; up another $5K month over month.

No significant changes in the Pending Sales either! Down by 50 and the median asking price stayed flat. Here again I do not expect to see much movement up or down with the Pending sales.

Closed sales were up by 77 month over month and was up year over year. The median sales price was up by $9K month over month and $24K year over year. The median Days on Market inched up a little bit to 12 days.

As I stated in last months newsletter (did you read it?!?) the market is staying pretty steady. Not really sure at this point if we are going to see much movement in the market until maybe next spring. Potential sellers seem to be holding onto their homes due to the lack of inventory for them to move to! Catch-22 for sure! If you have any questions regarding the real estate market (or know someone who does) please feel free to contact me!

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!
