Home Sale Prices Continue to Sky Rocket in Aurora, CO!

Housing MarketIf you have been on the fence about selling your home, NOW IS THE TIME.  Whether you are upgrading, downsizing, or considering the sale of your rental……  NOW IS THE TIME.

 

Home values continue to rise all around the Denver metro area.  With inventories at record lows and buyers searching in masses despite the Winter weather we are currently experiencing a “seller‘s market” to remember.  As we bring February 2015 to a close home values are up over 16% from the beginning of 2014 in January with the average home in Southeast Aurora now selling for an astonishing $297,500.

 

The market closed out January 2014 with 138 new listings in Southeast Aurora, yet last month we experienced record inventory lows closing out January 2015 with a mere 80 new listings dropping inventories by 42%.  But what does all of this mean?

 

Sellers are finding their homes receiving multiple offers after just days on the market, each offer and buyer bringing it’s own attractive qualities such as a cash buyer to waiving inspection rights up front and even closing time frames to meet the seller‘s needs.

 

Of The Storck Team’s last 3 listings for sale one seller received 7 offers, one of which was for $10,000 over asking price.  Another seller received 4 offers one of them being a cash buyer whom waived their appraisal entirely.  Our most recent listing received 5 offers with one being $3000 over asking price and just a 25 day closing deadline.

Home Affordability Expected to Drop 10% in 2015

Housing MarketReal Estate experts are suggesting that NOW is the time to move if you are planning to buy a home in 2015.  Realtor.com economists predict that home affordability will decline as much as 10% by the end of the year.  And with property values rising at record rates, you’re likely to qualify for less home by the time summer come around.  The Federal Reserve Bank also continues to remind the public that they plan on raising target federal funding rates in 2015 which will cause mortgage interest rates to rise as well.

HOW DOES A SELLER DECIDE WHICH OFFER TO ACCEPT?

For SaleIn this crazy real estate market we are experiencing currently in Colorado, being a buyer can be a rather overwhelming situation in this seller‘s market.  Often times these days buyers are finding themselves writing contract after contract and being out bid at every turn.  On the flip side, sellers are finding themselves sifting through the good, the bad, and the ugly when their home receives multiple offers; some homes are receiving upwards of 10 plus offers within a week on the market.  Here are some tips and insider information on what the seller‘s agent is likely advising their client to look for when considering multiple offers on their home, and how to get your offer to the top of the seller‘s list.

 

Purchase Price

They review comparable sales information with their agent. The agent will have experience in the market and be able to offer advice but ultimately the seller is deciding on an offer price that is comfortable for them and reflects just how much you want the house.

Don’t assume that multiple bids mean the offers will go sky high- sometimes all the offers can be under the asking price. The comparable sales info and the amount of activity for the listing should give you some sense of how high the offers might go.

Type of Financing

Cash is gold! With a cash offer there is no worry about mortgage contingency (a home that you have to sell before your loan can be finalized on the new house). If there is a mortgage involved, a Conventional loan will be more desirable than an FHA or VA loan for your new home. Personally I have had deals fall apart because of FHA or VA financing requirements.

Contingencies

The typical contingencies in a home purchase contract are: financing, home inspection, and satisfactory review of the condominium documents. You should have a letter of pre-approval from your lender ready to go and submit it with the offer right up front. Be aware that some buyers may very well drop any and all of their contingencies such as waiving their right to inspection or loan related deadlines within the contract making their earnest money at risk right off the bat.  This can show the seriousness of an offer to the seller.

Timeline

Have your agent chat with the seller‘s agent before you write your contract about dates that you are requesting on each deadline.  If necessary, tighten up your timeline to meet the seller‘s time frame and needs.  For example; instead of 7 days to do the home inspection, bring it down to 3 days. This is where having picked your Home Inspector before you find your home will help you.  If you have a mortgage pre-approval your closing date can be as soon as 45 days if needed.  If the seller is looking to move, for one reason or another, at a date a little farther out than the norm, create for your contract deadlines and closing dates may better fit the sellers needs.  For example; if you are writing an offer on the house on March 18th and they really wanted to stay until their son finishes the school year, write a closing date of May 25th which is over 2 months out.

Deposits

Expectations for deposit amounts vary in different states and regions. Talk to your agent about the norms in your area and consider increasing the deposit (earnest money). This doesn’t cost you anything since the deposit will go towards your down payment. From the seller’s perspective, however, it shows evidence of the seriousness of your offer.

Letter to Owner

And one no-cost but often very effective tool to sellers: Write a letter about who you are, why you love the house, and how you’ll take good care of it. Mention any special things that stood out to you. If you can tell the sellers took good care of the house, let them know that you noticed it. If you like their decorating; mention that. Sellers will often remember and remark about the letter for weeks after receiving it.  Letters have become a very popular tool lately, to take things a step further talk to your agent about submitting a personalized video about the house to the seller with your offer.
