Homebuyers Are On Borrowed Time, Sellers Take Note

Buyers Market or Sellers Market

If you’re thinking of buying a home in 2015, you may want to do it sooner rather than later. Why is that? Well, according to Gary Keller, Chairman of the Board of the world’s largest real estate company, “Home buyers are on borrowed time.” Keller made this comment back in February at Keller Williams Realty’s annual gathering of top associates from around the world as part of his economic update.

In case you’re thinking the comment made by Keller may have been self-serving just to encourage urgency among potential homebuyers, you might be interested to know that the Federal Reserve’s moves last week seem to corroborate Keller’s statement. From The Washington Post on March 19th: “The Federal Reserve cleared the way Wednesday for raising interest rates for the first time since the financial crisis.” The Fed was clear that a rate hike is not immediate or even imminent, but they definitely opened the door for that to happen this year. And as we see the economy improve, we also believe this will happen.

CEO The Belt TeamTerry Belt, CEO of The Belt Team says he is “advising our serious buyers that NOW is the time to buy. Rising interest rates, combined with rising home values mean that buying later will equal lower affordability and much less house. It is for this reason that we are also advising Sellers to sell sooner rather than later. If and when interest rates rise, some home buyers will be priced out of the market. And while home values are projected to rise in 2015, the projected rise is very moderate – about 3%, as compared to the 11% rise we saw in some areas over the past few years.”

Today, we spoke with Christine Todd, CEO of the Northern VA Association of Realtors (the 11th largest association in the U.S.). She told us that housing inventory in Northern VA is at a five year low and that throughout Northern VA, inventory is at 2 months. Two months of inventory translates to a Seller’s Market. That puts Sellers in the driver’s seat – making now a fabulous time to sell. It also means that Buyers have less options and it make take more time to find your dream home. And unlike the Rolling Stones song “Time Is On My Side”, it may only be a matter of time before rates rise. Another reason why waiting may not be to your benefit.

Whether you’re buying or selling, there are challenges on both ends. Buyers seek guidance on getting through credit hurdles, loan approvals and financing options. They need advocates who can advise on how to best compete, what their options are and how to find homes not already on the market. They want the RIGHT home. And while it sounds good to be a Seller during a Seller’s market (and it is!) – you still want to make sure you don’t leave money on the table and that once you are under contract, your sale actually goes to closing. THIS is where a top notch Realtor makes a difference and why the number of people selling by owner has gone down year after year.

“Market Analysis, Pricing Strategy, Contract Negotiations” Most Important When Selling Home

Survey Says

Market analysis, pricing strategy, contract negotiations” are the most important services The Belt Team provided during the homeselling process, said Mike Shea who sold his home on Moonac Court in Vienna recently.

After every home sale is complete, The Belt Team sends a customer service survey. Not only do we want to find out what the experience was like for our clients, we also want to know what we can do better. Our philosophy is to always raise the bar higher.

This time, our client Mike Shea surprised us – not with the 10 out of 10 rating – but with his advice – that we need to share more with the marketplace about how our skills set us apart.

Mike – consider it done!

Here’s what he said:

My only recommendation is The Belt Team could do a better job of showcasing their skills to the marketplace. You are more than just a group of Broker/Realtors. Everyone brings a unique skill to the table and that translates into effective transaction management and best in class results for your clients.”

He continued, “As always Gail worked endless hours and did a terrific job, Terry provided valuable behind the scenes input and Patty deserves special recognition for her quick response to numerous administrative requests. You have a very professional team with effective tactical skills.”

Thanks Mike – you made our day! We’ve always believed that a team of specialists outperforms a team of generalists – like a Dream Team of Real Estate. We’re happy to know that our clients receive value added as a result of our philosophy!

Call (703) 242-3975 if you would like to work with Real Estate’s Dream Team. Our mission is “Changing Lives For The Better – One Family At A Time”!
