Monica Knows $$$$…

The COST of a Home: Last Year, This Year & Next Year

The cost of a home is determined mainly by two components: price and mortgage rate. Today, we want to show how the monthly cost of purchasing a median priced home has changed over the last twelve months and how it might change over the next twelve months. For the first two examples, we will be using the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) Existing Home Sales Report to establish median price and Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey to establish mortgage rate. We also assumed a 20% down payment in all examples.

LAST YEAR

The median priced home in the country was selling for $187,800. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate was at 3.5%. Here is what it would cost to buy a home last year:

TODAY

The median priced home in the country is selling for $213,500. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate is at 4.5%. Here is what it would cost a purchaser to buy a home today:

The monthly cost increased by: $190.78!

NEXT YEAR

Projecting into the future in real estate can be rather tricky. To establish future pricing, we depended on the over 100 housing experts surveyed for the Home Price Expectation Survey who called for an approximate appreciation rate of 5% over the next twelve months. For the interest rate, we took the average of the projections from the Mortgage Bankers’ Association, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Here is what these experts project will be the approximate cost of a home a year from now:

The monthly cost will increase by about: $97.32!

Bottom Line

From a financial perspective, DON’T WAIT  if you are thinking about buying?

Looking At A Home That Has Been On The Market For A While…

Looking At A Home That Has Been On The Market For A While…

We have all have seen that home in the neighborhood that has been for sale FOREVER!!! While I am sure everyone has their own opinion on why it has been for sale this long! Typically it is pricing if not pricing it could be location if not that then maybe million other things. So for whatever reason you have decided to walk the home and have taken a liking to it. What should you think about prior to purchasing this home.

So we know there is a reason why it has been on the market that long. Identify your intentions with the home in a detailed outline? The home could be place to call live… investment property… quick flip… No matter what the end result is make sure to plan a well thought out exit strategy. Just because the property might be a steal, needs a little work and can be done easily doesn’t mean you are fixing the reason it sat on the market. Make sure you identify the deficiency, rectify the deficiency and PRICE CORRECTLY. If you can’t identify and or rectify the deficiency then PASS on the property!

There are a ton of properties out there live to buy another day!

Finished Spaces Find Their Way Outside…

Finished Spaces Find Their Way Outside…

I know it’s summer and everyone is looking to stretch their legs and get outside in the sun… I ran into 5 Articles this week alone while reviewing my weekly Real Estate/Development Periodicals. Every article I read obviously boasts these super expensive outdoor spaces with crazy big grills, over the top furnishings and electronics you might use like once. If you were are planning to be laid to your final resting place in the $6,000.00 grill they recommended then I say go for it. But dollar for dollar a $6,000.00 grill does nothing special to the food you place on the grates. More than likely they are the same cooking grates you will find on a grill that costs a fraction.

Outdoor renovations can be super tempting to go overboard but they must be treated differently than interior finishes. The average lifespan of exterior items will be significantly shorter than an indoor item. More than likely in your head you are justifying the outdoor upgrades by return on investment and not return on enjoyment. But in for outdoors it should be enjoyment rather than return. Don’t cut corners on hardscpaing, built ins and items that stand up to the elements. While a exterior sub zero fridge sounds nice do your self a favor and but the Hotpoint. Even if you replace the Hotpoint three times due to the elements you will still end up ahead over a sub zero.

Do Spend Top Dollar On-

Pavers – Retaining Walls – Mature Trees – Stone Built Ins – Long Term Landscaping/Plantings – Exterior Lighting – Etc…

Do Not Spend Top Dollar On-

Grills – Fridges – Beer Fridges – Warming Drawers – Televisions – Exterior Speakers – Furniture – Etc…

 

Don’t fall into the trap… Be wise when it comes to the outdoor spaces don’t get beat by the elements!
