The following numbers represent the Real Estate Market Review of homes sold for 2011 versus 2010 in Blackhawk Country Club. The Blackhawk market has been steady year over year. Median sales prices of single family homes have gotten a boost, despite a reduction in home sales, as the year came to a close. The marketing times for both attached and detached homes has remained steady. The data for attached homes is really too small to make any major conclusion but pricing has softened. Several large estates have also sold with their transfer prices being reported at zero or $1.

Mortgage and Market Update for January 13th Economic News: A fairly light week of economic news has passed. The Beige Book (published two weeks before FED monetary meetings) was a little more positive than the November report. The verbiage changed on the economy from “slow to moderate” growth to a “modest to moderate pace”. Weekly Jobless Claims reversed direction this week after several weeks of improvement but still remained under the 400,000 level at 399,000. Retail Sales were weaker than estimated for December but were 6.5% above December 2010 levels. Continuing its positive movement since August, Consumer Sentiment beat consensus for the beginning of January 2012. There is a lot of economic news out next week so keep an eye out.Mortgage Markets: Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Secu...

I stumbled across “Contingency Sales Offers Becoming More Acceptable” earlier this month and it got me thinking of possible alternatives. The basic premise behind a Contingent Offer is that you are entering into contract on a new home prior to selling your current residence. Today’s real estate market is ripe for those looking to move up. While all homes have declined in value the opportunity to purchase your dream home in today’s low interest rate environment is something to definitely consider. That brings me back to contingent offers. You certainly want to “strike the best deal possible” on the new home but if you are writing it with a contingency you may not be negotiating from a position of strength. In fact, the seller may take back up offers and when utilizing the California Asso...

Mortgage and Market Update for December 23rd Economic News: With the troubles in Europe subsiding for the moment as the European Central Bank is providing liquidity the focus can return to the state of our economy here at home. We have seen strength in the housing data as of late but when looking at 2011 as a whole New Homes Sales are near 40 year lows. The National Association of Realtors® also revised four years of sales data lower which made the housing slump look worse than originally reported. It is good to keep in mind that housing is a lagging indicator and we have been looking for improvement in employment and the mood of the consumer to lead the economy back. We received both this week as the Weekly Jobless Claims declined for the third week in a row to 364K versus the expecte...
