Know What’s Happening in Our Real Estate Market?

As we are more than halfway through the year, it is a good time to take a look at where the market is heading.  Results of the latest Home Price Expectation Survey by Pulsenomics indicate the panel feels home values nationwide will appreciate by 4.6% this year with an average annual appreciation of 3.5% over the next 5 years.  Specific to our market area, we still have plenty of inventory and, in most towns, sales are lagging behind last year.  This will keep prices lower for the time being.  However, in the larger picture, we continue moving forward towards a healthy and balanced real estate market.

Are You Looking for the Perfect House?

Okay buyers, I know it’s like being a kid in the candy store when you are out looking in today’s market.  There are plenty of choices.  However, there is no reason to look at every home for sale in your price range.   You are NOT going to find the perfect one – every house has trade-offs and it’s a matter of weighing the features important to you.   Psychologists and economists have studied the issue of too many choices and have concluded that an overload of options may actually paralyze people.  Buyers fear that whatever they select, the other option would have been better.  Research shows that an excess of choices leads us to be less, not more, satisfied once we actually decide.  According to the 2013 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Buyers & Sellers, the typical buyer viewed 10 homes during their home search process.  If you are spending hours researching and have looked at way more than 10 houses, it’s time to stop and focus.  And be happy with what you decide!  If you need help in focusing, then give me a call.  As an Accredited Buyers’ Representative, I will put my years of experience to work for you.  donna@donnaforest.com, www.donnaforest.com, 603-526-4116.
