Episode 7 ~ June 2019 Roanoke Va Market update ~ Roanoke Real Estate
Here is the market update for June 2019. The Roanoke market is hot right now, so if you're looking to move to a certain school district before school starts now's the time to start looking. - The average home price is $225,000, up 3% from last year. - There are four months of inventory, that's down 14% from last year. - Days on the market's about 100 days, and that's down 8% from last year. But it also depends on what area you're in. - There are currently, 1,910 active listings, which is down 16% from last year. - The national average of a 30 year fixed rate mortgage, is a little under 4%, depending on your financial situation. - The national average of home appreciation is at 3.7%, which is right in line with Roanoke home prices. - In school we learned about supply and demand and when demand goes up, prices go up. - In quite a few areas in Roanoke, the demand is far greater than the supply. So we're seeing houses sell in hours, for over list price. - Whether you're trying to buy or sell, now's a great time to do so. With the interest rates being at an all-time low, you can afford more of a house, and with the demand being so high, you can sell your house faster than ever. - Okay. If you want to know what your house is worth, give us a call for a free home evaluation.

4 Reasons to Buy a Home in the Spring ~ Roanoke Real Estate Agent
Spring has sprung, and it’s a great time to buy a home! Here are four reasons to consider buying today instead of waiting. 1. Prices Will Continue to Rise CoreLogic’s latest U.S. Home Price Insights reports that home prices have appreciated by 4.4% over the last 12 months. The same report predicts that prices will continue to increase at a rate of 4.6% over the next year. Home values will continue to appreciate for years. Waiting no longer makes sense. 2. Mortgage Interest Rates Are Projected to Increase Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey shows that interest rates for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage came in at 4.41% last week. Most experts predict that rates will rise over the next 12 months. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the National Association of Realtors are in unison, projecting rates will increase by this time next year. An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, your housing expense will increase if a mortgage is necessary to buy your next home. 3. Either Way, You Are Paying a Mortgage Some renters have not yet purchased a home because they are uncomfortable taking on the obligation of a mortgage. Everyone should realize that unless you are living with your parents rent-free, you are paying a mortgage – either yours or your landlord’s. As an owner, your mortgage payment is a form of ‘forced savings’ that allows you to have equity in your home that you can tap into later in life. As a renter, you guarantee your landlord is the person with that equity. Are you ready to put your housing cost to work for you? 4. It’s Time to Move On with Your Life The ‘cost’ of a home is determined by two major components: the price of the home and the current mortgage rate. It appears that both are on the rise. But what if they weren’t? Would you wait? Examine the actual reason you are buying and decide if it is worth waiting. Whether you want to have a great place for your children to grow up, greater safety for your family, or you just want to have control over renovations, now could be the time to buy. Bottom Line If the right thing for you and your family is to purchase a home this year, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.
