    Local Market Conditions

    It’s time to take look at the latest real estate facts and figures from across the country.

    This week we’re going to go further into the most recent Existing Home Sales report from THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, concentrating on October sales of existing homes by price category.

    October showed improvement when it came to sales in many price categories across the country. But it was homes priced above $1,000,000, showing the strongest year over year growth. Overall in October of this year we saw sales up in every category except at the lower end of the market. October saw the middle of the market posting solid gains. It was in that range of the market from the $250,000 to the $1,000,000 mark, where we saw DOUBLE DIGIT growth.

    So let’s see how those numbers play out when we break them down by price category.

    They’re all good ideas…maybe hard to keep….but still, good ideas. But we thought we’d wrap up both hours of today’s show with another good idea: An entire set – of Real Estate Resolutions – which could help make 2015 the best year ever for you – whether you’re a buyer, a seller or a homeowner who’s in it for the long run. Ten resolutions – five now, and five at the end of our next hour.
    OK? Let’s start with resolutions for home owners – including people who might be thinking about selling their home.

    New Year’s Resolutions for Buyers

    We’re getting to that time of year when people think about their New Year’s Resolutions. You know – lose 10 pounds, save ten grand – we all have our own individual resolutions.

    But if you listened to our last hour, you’ll know we started a special list of resolutions -just for real estate. Five resolutions for home owners and sellers. So now? We’re going to finish up today’s show with five more real estate resolutions – and these are for home buyers. The people whose New Year’s resolution is to become a homeowner in 2015. Or, if they’re already homeowners – people who plan to sell their current home, and get another one, or even buy a second home in the coming year.

    You never know! Making these resolutions on New Year’s Day might just lead to “Settlement Day” in 2015.

      Local Market Conditions

      It’s time to continue our look at the latest facts and figures from across the country as we look at the most recent existing home sales report from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®.

      This week we’re going to dig further into the existing home sales numbers, looking at the condo and co-op market to see what effect it had on the housing numbers we saw in October.

      But first let’s recap what we saw in overall existing home sales for October. After a strong rebound in Existing Home Sales in September, many wondered if the momentum might carry on over into October to kick off the 4th Quarter of 2014.

      Smart Homes on the Screen – Both Large and Small

      You know, home automation technology is starting to crowd the shelves at hardware stores, home improvement stores and of course, online stores as well. Companies everywhere are developing and launching as many smart home products as possible. Trying to fire up our imaginations – while beating their competition to the marketplace.

      But they didn’t get there first. You know who did?

      Hollywood. Yep. They’ve been dreaming up Smart Home features for decades. Dreaming up – just what the ‘home of the future’ would really be like. Sometimes their predictions were hilarious – and absolutely wrong. But sometimes – they were absolutely right!

      Is it OK to Leave my House “Dumb”?

      We’d like to ask you a question about smart home technology. And that is: do you really need it?

      Or – can you ‘just say no…’ to making YOUR home ‘smart?’ And enjoy your house just the way it is…and just the way it’s been….for 20, 30, even 50 years?

      Is that possible? Well, let’s take a look at what your life would be like – if you decided to let the parade of smart home products – pass you by.

      Let’s start with that programmable, internet-connected smart thermostat, for example. Do you need it? Well, no.

      You can always do it the old fashioned way: walk over to the thermostat and turn up the heat when you’re cold. Or, turn down the air conditioning when you’re hot.

      But hey – everybody says programmable thermostats save you money!
