Bright MLS has a feature that tracks the Home Demand Index (HDI) per zip code in Calvert County. The Calvert County HDI for January 2023 is 75, falling in the "slow" range. While the "slow" characterization is not surprising given how the real estate market in general is being reported, as well as the interest rate situation and low inventory giving buyers limited choices, there are bright spots in the numbers. One of the most noteworthy revelations when taking a look at this index is that when comparing to the index a year ago, the index is still higher in the majority of the zip codes in the county. With several zip codes in the "steady" and " moderate" range, it paints an overall stable picture for the Calvert County market.  Also, there are zip codes showing increases since late fal...

In this brief post we want to share a chart we've made showing the real estate price trends for pre-existing / resale homes sold in Clark County Washington. The underlying data employed comes from the Regional Multiple Listing Service (RMLS); and goes back to 2009; charting the 3-month rolling average for prices in the County, and for the larger cities of Camas, Battle Ground and Vancouver.To "highlight" the "bubble" we've manually created two straight black-lines (each with an arrow). The starting point for the base-line (longer, lesser-slope) is January 2012, which is approximately the bottom for the 2008 - 2009 crash; and beginning of the latest up-trend in home sales prices. We next add in a shorter black line that reasonably captures the price-increase-slope of the 2020 to 2022 str...

Higher Days on Market But Prices Rise in Brunswick Forest This is Jay from Ocean Views Real Estate, Inc. in the Cape Fear Realtor Association of North Carolina and found on Google business directory for Leland NC homes. We’re going to look at Brunswick Forest homes today and just compare 2022 to 2023 and size it up from the perspective of a buyer and a seller. Back when we were selling homes in the Spring of 2022 it was crazy; it was surreal. And it was no fun to work in and the buyer's side of the coin and then you had the seller side of the coin where I would tell people in a listing appointment,  “Well the comps on your home is we come up with the most ridiculous price we can think of, and that's your listing price.” And that's how I listed homes in the spring and summer. So let's lo...

Watertown CT 2022 Year End Real Estate Market AnalysisThe year 2022 was a continuation of the strong seller's market of the previous 2 years.  The rise of interest rates created due to the inflationary trend in the second half of the year put some buyers back into a waiting mode.  Businesses are on the rebound and their biggest obstacles are the rise in raw materials as well as the lack of qualified employees. In spite of this, after a slight pause the market in Watertown began its rise and finished the year strong. For the year 2021, the market sales or absorption rate was 23 sales per month, with an average sales value of $308,435 and average days on market of 47.For the year 2022, the market sales or absorption rate was 23 sales per month, with an average sales value of $329,271 and ...

Manchester NH Real Estate Market REPORT Jan. 30, 2023. As January comes to a close, the amount of Single Family home new listings doubled last week. The amount of Pending Sales increased greatly for both single family and condos. The amount of new condo listings though, fell greatly.  THIS WEEKS QUESTION asks "Is there more Pending Sales falling apart or does it just seem that way?" Let me check MY CRYSTAL BALL and see what it says. YES, you are seeing a greater percentage of homes that went "Under Contract" come back on the market. Inspection issues, Appraisal Issues, Buyers not getting approved or Buyers with Cold Feet, are the main reasons.There is a way though to reduce your odds that your sale will also fall through. Pricing your home correctly from the start. As your listing agent...
