How to Position your North Dallas Home for the Best Price

by Christie Cannon

One of the most common questions every homeowner wants to know is how to make sure they maximize their financial reward when selling their home. But how do you set yourself up to ensure that you receive the maximum value for your house?

Here are two keys to ensure that you get the highest price possible.

1. Price it a LITTLE LOWER 

This may seem counterintuitive, but let’s look at this concept for a moment. Many homeowners think that pricing their homes a little OVER market value will leave them with room for negotiation. In actuality, this just dramatically lessens the demand for your house (see chart below).

2 Ways to Get the Most Money from The Sale of Your Home | Simplifying The Market

Instead of the seller trying to ‘win’ the negotiation with one buyer, they should price it so that demand for the home is maximized. By doing this, the seller will not be fighting with a buyer over the price but will instead have multiple buyers fighting with each other over the house.

Realtor.com gives this advice:

“Aim to price your property at or just slightly below the going rate. Today’s buyers are highly informed, so if they sense they’re getting a deal, they’re likely to bid up a property that’s slightly underpriced, especially in areas with low inventory.”

2. Use a Real Estate Professional

This, too, may seem counterintuitive. The seller may think they would make more money if they didn’t have to pay a real estate commission. With this being said, studies have shown that homes typically sell for more money when handled by a real estate professional.

study by Collateral Analytics, reveals that FSBOs don’t actually save any money, and in some cases may be costing themselves more, by not listing with an agent.

In the study, they analyzed home sales in a variety of markets in 2016 and the first half of 2017. The data showed that:

“FSBOs tend to sell for lower prices than comparable home sales, and in many cases below the average differential represented by the prevailing commission rate.”

The results of the study showed that the differential in selling prices for FSBOs when compared to MLS sales of similar properties is about 5.5%. Sales in 2017 suggest the average price was near 6% lower for FSBO sales of similar properties.

Bottom Line

Price your house at or slightly below the current market value and hire a professional. This will guarantee that you maximize the price you get for your house.  To see what your home might be able to sell for, please click the link below!

Christie Cannon named among America's Best Real Estate Agents

by Christie Cannon

 

Christie Cannon Named to REAL Trends' America’s Best Real Estate Agents in Frisco, TX.

Christie Cannon of Keller Williams Realty Frisco was named one of America’s most productive sales associates as a part of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents, the newly issued ranking report produced by REAL Trends and sponsored by Zillow Group.  Cannon’s Team is now a member of the “America’s Best Real Estate Agents,” and ranked number 14 for the state of Texas.  

REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks over 12,000 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2015. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.

The real estate professionals are ranked in four categories:

• Individual agent — Sales volume
• Individual agent — Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: the buy side and the selling side)
• Agent team — Sales volume
• Agent team — Transaction sides

To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2015. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume.

“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed fewer than eight transactions in 2015 and had less than $1.5 million in sales,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. “To say that Christie Cannon is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”

“We are also pleased that two of the nation’s most prominent online real estate websites, Trulia® and Zillow®, have partnered with REAL Trends to bring a superior level of customer exposure of these sales agents’ performance,” Murray added.

Information on those receiving this recognition can be found online at http://www.americasbestre.com

“I am obviously pleased and honored to be ranked on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” said Christie Cannon, “It represents the time and effort that we put into each client that we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career. The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition.”

New Build Inventories are Seeing a New Peak

by Christie Cannon

 

 

Many experts have been calling upon home builders to ramp up construction to help with the lack of existing inventory for sale. For the past two months, new home sales have surged, with July’s total coming in at the highest since October 2007.

The latest estimates from the US Census Bureau and Department of Housing and Urban Development show that sales in July were31.3% higher than this time last year, and 12.4% higher than last month, at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 654,000. 

 Zillow’s Chief Economist, Svenja Gudell, echoed the reaction of some as she commented:

“July(‘s) new home sales data was a surprise, but a welcome one. For years, the market has been practically begging builders to both ramp up their efforts overall and to put more focus on serving the less expensive end of the market. Today's data confirms both are happening in earnest.”

 The National Association of Home Builder’s (NAHB) Chairman, Ed Brady, didn’t seem as surprised:

 “This rise in new home sales is consistent with our builders’ reports that market conditions have been improving. As existing home inventory remains flat, we should see more consumers turning to new construction.”

  NAHB’s Chief Economist, Robert Dietz, believes this is just the start for new home sales if market conditions continue:

  “July’s positive report shows there is a need for new single-family homes, buoyed by increased household formation, job gains and attractive mortgage rates. This uptick in demand should translate into increased housing production throughout 2016 and into next year.”

  The existing home sales numbers for July will be released today and will shed more light on the overall health of the housing market.

Bottom Line

New home sales hit their highest mark in over 9 years. Buyers are out in force to find a home that fits their needs. Many are turning to new construction, as the inventory of existing homes has not been able to keep up with demand.

Dallas Home Price Increases Far Outpace the US

by Christie Cannon

While many have reported the record gains that DFW has seen over the last 5-years have started to slow in their pace of increase, affordability continues to be a real problem for low-to-medium income households.  

Our record increases are easily reflected in the latest S&P/Case Shiller Index.  With local home prices up over 8.4%, Dallas' increase is almost twice that of the national average of 4.4%.  According to the Case Shiller Index, North Texas' record levels are almost 20% higher than our "peak" market in 2007!  While many of the economic fundamentals of the North Texas economy remain strong, many in our market are starting to grow weary of the increasing affordability gap. Despite Dallas being among the top three increases in the nation, many experts still consider the North Texas market a bargain compared to many other market areas around the nation. However, we are already starting to see signs of buyers (especially those that are long term residents) growing fatigued with rising sale prices compared to North Texas' more modest historic gains.
