    The Run-Up

    We wanted to talk about something we’ve been hearing about from economists, journalists and Realtors alike: many of them are expecting a real estate buying SURGE between now, and the end of the year.

    The theory is – there’s a HUGE pent-up demand out there…and the floodgates are about to open.

    Call it a spike, a run-up, or even a boom – many experts believe the buyers are about to start hitting open houses, and they’ll be bringing their checkbooks with them.

    Economists with the real estate brokerage Redfin have said, in the coming months, the market will post numbers that’ll be STRONGER than anything we’ve seen over the past FIVE years.

    So let’s examine whether the Fall Market, 2014 – might really be red hot.

    Loving Autumn

    We wanted to talk about this very special season that begins late Monday night. The autumn of 2014.

    You know – some people say that autumn is their favorite season of the year. The weather’s not too hot, and not too cold. The humidity drops. The fall colors. The smells of apple pie, the tastes of pumpkin lattes, the sights and sounds of football, and of course, the day that brings it all together — Thanksgiving. Just about nine weeks away.

    We found a really fun poll on the internet. It was not a real estate site, or even a homeowner site…but rather, a website for classical music lovers, called ‘TalkClassical.com.’ They took a survey of their members – and asked: “what is your favorite season?”

    At the bottom? Winter and Spring. They were a draw, at about 13% each.

    Next up? Summer, which came in at around 21%.

    But fall? That was the runaway winner! More than 53% of the people said it is, by far, their favorite season.

    Local Market Conditions

    It’s time to take a closer look at the facts and figures from across the country with latest data from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®.

    Next week sees the release of the eagerly anticipated Existing Home Sales report for the month of August. And as we head towards a brand new selling season, the fall market, we thought we’d take look back at the most recent figures to see what they could tell us about what we can look forward to.

    We saw a slow start to the New Year but, the real estate market started to pick up some momentum through the warmer months. Not only did we see sales on the rise but we also saw inventory increase giving more options to buyers.

      Disclosures

      When you’re buying a home, you’re confronted with a mountain of information. Normally, that’s great. With so much knowledge, you’d think that every detail of this huge transaction – will be crystal clear.
