WOW!   12/5/6/5  This morning shows 12 new SOLD properties, 5 UNDER CONTRACT, 6 PRICE REDUCTIONS & 5 NEW LISTINGS.  In recent days the market continues to move along with plenty of properties available whether it be for land, a permanent primary residence, second home or time share for summer/winter fun.

SOLDS are for the past several days and range from around $285,000- up to over $14,000,000-.  It is quite a range of property values for sure.  What is important simply is there is a property out there for you most likely at a price which is affordable for you.

UNDER CONTRACT properties are those pending with an accepted offer by the seller from a buyer and they are now working through the process to meet all of the contractual terms, be it an inspection, financing, or it could be one or more of many other terms to yet be fulfilled.  Some meet all the requirements and move to the SOLD category others do not and may then return to LISTINGS back on the market.  The range of listed properties UNDER CONTRACT are from $275K to over $2.2M.

PRICE REDUCTIONS on average is $42,650- of Listed properties.  Keep in mind the spread of Listing prices are from the $400K to over $2.4M.  Regardless, there are motivated sellers and is this the time for you to make your move?

NEW LISTINGS on the market are located from East Vail to Gypsum.  They range in listing price from $465K up to $3.2M.  Is this in your price range?  Could this be one of the areas you are considering?

You probably know that home listings go up most often on Thursdays and Fridays. Here is the data to back up your intuition:

  • As we start the New Year, this is a good time to take a look and recap the year behind us to see what insights 2014 holds for 2015. While December 2015 is still preliminary, we can get a good sense of the year by looking at the data we currently have for the past 12 months[1]. In our first posts, we looked at popular and least common closing dates. Here, we’ll take a look at listings.
  • Below, we see the most popular listing days of 2015. Note the strong preponderance of spring dates and obvious lack of weekends.
  • The biggest months for new listings are April, May, and June, followed by March and July. These months alone accounted for roughly half of all new listings in this analysis.
  • While not devoid of new listings, the weekends are obviously not popular days to list. Among weekdays, Fridays and Thursdays are the most common days for new listings to go up, with Mondays and Wednesdays trailing a bit and Tuesdays not too far behind. Tuesdays and weekends are the only days of the week absent in the top 25 days for listings.
  • While home closings exhibit a strong tendency to get done at the end of the month, listings are much steadier throughout the course of the month with a slight tendency to be posted earlier rather than later.

Are you contemplating about whether you are buying or building yourself a custom-made home? Newly renovated homes can be very heart warming, but nothing would beat a custom-made home that have considered all your needs today and in the future. An old home renovated to fit your needs can carry with it a lot of character, but a house that has been especially designed for you will make your living conditions even more special.

Image_014

Apart from the serious maintenance problems that come with old homes, here are the tops reasons why a custom-built home is perfect for you. This list will convince you that getting your home built from scratch should be the only way to go.

Your house will look like its own

You don’t have to live in a house that looks much like other people’s houses. When you have a custom builder plan ahead for you, they will make sure that their design will fit your personal taste. It is not just about having the right number of rooms or having the toilet positioned where you want it to. It is about having a home that fits your life now and is prepared for what the future may bring.

Unparalleled Construction

If you want to be careful in choosing all the details of your home, a custom built home is for you. Not only will you be involved in the planning, but you will be able to witness how your home is built. More importantly, if something goes wrong in the future, you will be the knowledgeable home owner that you are. Knowing all the nicks and knacks of your home should always be a priority.

The outdoor space of your home should also be included in the planning. The indoors is not the only part of your house. You have to make sure that you invest in your outdoor space too. Keep in mind that a beautiful outdoor space will improve the value of your home by as much 30%.

One of the biggest worries that homeowners have about custom built homes is the cost. And yet when you look at the bigger picture, investing in a home that is built with your needs in mind is more cost-efficient than buying a house with all the parts gone wrong.

For more information on finding the perfect lot to build your dream custom home, call Greg Peterson at 970-331-1333. Home sites available throughout the Vail Valley in Vail, Beaver Creek, Cordillera, Bachelor Gulch, and many other communities. 

Is it really 2016 already?  For those of you who happen to be planning on buying a home in the new year—or even just trying to—there’s a whole lot to celebrate. Why? A variety of financial vectors have dovetailed to make this the perfect storm for home buyers to get out there and make an (winning) offer. Here are six home-buying reasons to be thankful while ringing in the new year:

Reason No. 1: Interest rates are still at record lows

Even though they may creep up at any moment, it’s nonetheless a fact that interest rates on home loans are at historic lows, with a 30-year fixed-rate home loan still hovering around 4%.

“Remember 18.5% in the ’80s?” asks Tom Postilio, a real estate broker with Douglas Elliman Real Estate and a star of HGTV’s “Selling New York.”“It is likely that we’ll never see interest rates this low again. So while prices are high in some markets, the savings in interest payments could easily amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars over the life of the mortgage.”

Reason No. 2: Rents have skyrocketed

Another reason home buyers are lucky is that rents are going up, up, up! (This, on the other hand, is a reason not to be thankful if you’re a renter.) In fact, rents outpaced home values in 20 of the 35 biggest housing markets in 2015. What’s more, according to the2015 Rent.com Rental Market Report, 88% of property managers raised their rent in the past 12 months, and an 8% hike is predicted for 2016.

“In most metropolitan cities, monthly rent is comparable to that of a monthly mortgage payment, sometimes more,” says Heather Garriock, mortgage agent for The Mortgage Group. “Doesn’t it make more sense to put those monthly chunks of money into your own appreciating asset rather than handing it over to your landlord and saying goodbye to it forever?”

Reason No. 3: Home prices are stabilizing

For the first time in years, prices that have been climbing steadily upward are stabilizing, restoring a level playing field that helps buyers drive a harder bargain with sellers, even in heated markets.

“Local markets vary, but generally we are experiencing a cooling period,” says Postilio. “At this moment, buyers have the opportunity to capitalize on this.”

Reason No. 4: Down payments don’t need to break the bank

Probably the biggest obstacle that prevents renters from becoming homeowners is pulling together a down payment. But today, that chunk of change can be smaller, thanks to a variety of programs to help home buyers. For instance, the new Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Home Possible Advantage Program allows for a 3% down payment for credit scores as low as 620.

Reason No. 5: Mortgage insurance is a deal, too

If you do decide to put less than 20% down on a home, you are then required to have mortgage insurance (basically in case you default). A workaround to handle this, however, is to take out a loan from the Federal Housing Administration—a government mortgage insurer that backs loans with down payments as low as 3.5% and credit scores as low as 580. The fees are way down from 1.35% to 0.85% of the mortgage balance, meaning your monthly mortgage total will be significantly lower if you fund it this way. In fact, the FHA predicts this 37% annual premium cut will bring 250,000 first-time buyers into the market. Why not be one of them?

Reason No. 6: You’ll reap major tax breaks

Tax laws continue to favor homeowners, so you’re not just buying a place to live—you’re getting a tax break! The biggest one is that unless your home loan is more than $1 million, you can deduct all the monthly interest you are paying on that loan. Homeowners may also deduct certain home-related expenses and home property taxes.

Remember, anytime the economy is primed for buyers, it is also a great time to list your home for sale. So, whether your thinking of buying or selling, please give Greg Peterson a call at 970-331-1333,
