Median Prices in MoCo Top the Charts in May 2018

May Median Home Prices and Sales Volume in Montgomery County – graphic courtesy of GCAAR.com

The Federal Reserve recently raised the federal funds rate for the second time this year. In addition, most analysts predict the likelihood of two more rate increases by year-end and additional increases in 2019. The Federal Reserve has suggested that the rate hikes are being implemented to stave off inflation and are made in response to strong economic indicators and low unemployment statistics. Household spending is on the rise as well.

As a result of these Fed rate increases, mortgage interest rates have also seen an uptick and hover just above 4.5% for a 30-year fixed mortgage. This figure remains historically quite low, but buyers worry about additional near and long-term future rate hikes. This may be in part why the 2018 Spring Market has achieved new record-high activity both in terms of sales prices and number of sales.

According to a report issued June 13, 2018 from the Greater Capital Association of REALTORS based on multiple listing service data, in May 2018 closed sales in Montgomery County were the highest on record since 1997.  Median sales prices also topped the charts at $475,000, which is 6.4% higher than May 2017.  Pending sales are down however by 1.2% as compared to 2017, largely due to limited available inventory.

Heading into June 2018, there was approximately a 2.3 months supply of housing inventory, suggesting that we are still experiencing a seller’s market. While the news is great if you are selling your home, most people need to buy a replacement home and inventory is tight nationwide.

Buyers have struggled for some time now to find available homes that meet their needs and work within their budgetary restraints.  The lack of options has caused many would-be sellers to stay put. Some are instead opting to renovate their existing property, while others are “waiting it out” to see if the right house ever comes along.  However, as they wait it out, prices and interest rates continue to rise making it even more difficult to find the “dream home” at a reasonable price.

Our advice: buy now if you can.  Rates are unlikely to go down (not by much anyway, if at all) and the most important value in real estate is the land.  In the words of Mark Twain, “Buy land. They aren’t making it anymore.”

If you are considering a home sale or purchase in the greater Bethesda area, please feel free to contact us for a complimentary consultation to discuss your plans.  We offer a free market analysis, tips for preparing your home for sale and counsel on the home purchase process as well.  Please contact us at 301-229-3652 or Brian@BrianMaury.com or Amy@AmyMaury.com.  We are happy to help!

Selling your home? Our Top 10 Seller’s To-Do List

Are you thinking about selling your home? Perhaps you’ve explored a major renovation and/or adding an addition to your home to meet your needs. After the contractor’s estimate comes in (and you have picked yourself up off the floor) you are beginning to think it might make more sense to find another house. In the meantime you know intuitively that your house needs some attention, especially if you are going to get top-dollar for it. If you’re like most people you didn’t want to make any improvements if a full-scale renovation was in the works but now —that’s not likely. So what should you do?

Here’s our Top 10 Seller’s To-Do List to help you get on your way.

OMG#10   Remove the fear.
Nothing will kill a potential sale faster than fear. Home buyers are a nervous bunch, looking for reasons not to buy your home. Don’t let a minor repair create unnecessary fear in a potential buyer’s mind. Remember that roof leak from years ago? The stained ceiling that never got repainted could send a buyer running for the hills. Ask your agent for a referral to a quality contractor to patch, sand and paint the old damage. Basement leak? We’ve all had them. If the issue has been resolved let’s get things cleaned up and looking like new. If the issue is on-going consult your agent for a referral to the right contractors to solve the problem before you list your home for sale.

#9 Make strategic upgrades.
Some improvements can make the difference between selling quickly for top-dollar or languishing for sale on the market for months. The challenge is figuring out what the buyer hot-buttons are and making the right upgrades without breaking your bank account. This is where your real estate agent’s experience and advice can be invaluable. For example, installing a brand-new kitchen is very expensive and rarely makes sense. However, perhaps a few new appliances, a new counter- top, new shiny knobs on the cabinets, painting and updated lighting might be all that’s needed and just do the trick.

#8 Give a strong handshake.
One of the first lessons my father gave me was to give a good handshake. Your front door is like your handshake to the world. Buyers linger at the front door while their agent wrestles with the keys. Does the lock work easily? Is the door freshly painted? How is your entry light (filled with bugs)? Would a new light be more welcoming?

#7 Give yourself some curb appeal.
We all want an attractive home. Sure it’s a 1950’s brick home but look how charming the house is! That’s the sentiment you’re after. Hire a professional landscaper to trim, edge and mulch. First impressions matter and what your home says on the outside communicates what a buyer will find inside. A fresh coat of paint goes a long way!

Scrub#6 Clean. Then clean again.
“Did you see that bathroom? That was so gross!” We’ve heard buyers utter these very words as they quickly piled back into our car and on their way to the next house. Pay close attention to bathrooms and the kitchen where dirt and grime often build up. Remove mildewed caulk and give the refrigerator and stove a good scrub. Watch for offensive odors.  Can you see out the windows?  Sometimes hiring a professional house cleaning service is best.

#5 Should I paint that? The answer is YES!
There is truly no better pre-sale home investment than painting. Our home stager can provide color advice. Grey hues are the new beige and white semi-gloss remains the safe color of choice for trim.

#4 Professionally stage your home.
Home searches today begin on the Internet. The photos of your home will be your first (and often last) opportunity to make a good impression. We provide our clients with a complimentary professional home staging consultation because we know our stager can make a big difference in the visual appeal of their home and that ultimately creates more buyer interest.  We also offer virtual staging services, an exciting new cutting-edge real estate tool, in situations in which it makes the most sense for a space.

#3 Great photos and a floor plan.
The most important step in any home marketing plan is great photography. Today your home is being shown first on-line, then in person. If you don’t make the cut on-line you might not ever get the chance in person. Professional photography is a must and a floorplan of the house is critical too.  Check out a sample of our photography and floorplan tours here.

#2 Know thyself.
This timeless wisdom, passed down from nearly all the ancient civilizations, applies to selling your home as well. You need to look at your home as an observer (buyer) from the outside. Put your own personal feelings and emotional attachment aside and candidly assess your home’s value and appearance. Ask your agent take you on a tour of the homes you will be competing against.

#1 Call a real estate agent. (hint: Call Brian & Amy)
In addition to helping you with the aforementioned “to-do’s”, your agent will help you establish an accurate price. Nothing is more important than pricing your home correctly. Lean into your agent’s experience and advice.

Heed this list and we’re sure you’ll have no trouble selling your home.

If you are considering the sale of your home in the future please call us for a free consultation! We’re here to help.
