Inventory on Longest Downward Stretch in Two Decades

Arrow downHousing inventory is officially on its longest downward stretch in two decades, with 11 percent fewer homes on the market year-over-year in June, according to the latest data preview from realtor.com®. Prices in June were 9 percent higher than those one year ago, with the national median at $275,000 and the national median age of inventory at 60 days.

“We have now gone 24 months in a row seeing the number of homes drop on a year-over-year basis, the longest streak in more than two decades,” says Javier Vivas, manager of Economic Research at realtor.com. “More markets than ever are struggling with inventory problems; in 80 percent of markets, there are fewer homes for sale currently than this time last year.

shutterstock_232969765“It’s good to see that more homes are coming onto the market, but the bulk of those homes are too pricey for the largest, most desperate group of buyers. With no clear indication that newly-built homes will be able to provide short-term relief soon, there appears to be no end in sight for the inventory shortage. The market will likely remain very challenging for would-be buyers throughout the summer.”

The housing markets ranking in realtor.com’s Hotness Index for June:

1. Vallejo-Fairfield, Calif.
Median Age of Inventory: 31 days

2. San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, Calif.
Median Age of Inventory: 29 days

3. Kennewick-Richland, Wash.

Agent Tip of the Week! 

 

Safety Tips To Keep You Safe During REALTOR® Safety Month (and Beyond!)

Take time this month to consider how safe – or unsafe – you are as a real estate practitioner during the course of a typical day.  To brush up on useful, everyday safety tips and tools, here are some things to keep in mind:

1.  When you’re at the office, use a visitor log book and have each potential client fill out a customer ID form.  We have a prospect ID form at the front desk for you to use if needed.  Remember to also get a copy of their photo ID.  Don’t agree to a private showing unless you’ve already met a client in your office and don’t allow a client to ride in your car unless you know them well. Trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, remove yourself from the situation. Don’t worry about offending a client. Your safety is paramount.

2.  Show properties before dark and be observant.  Take 10 seconds as you arrive at each destination to evaluate your surroundings and check for anything out of the ordinary.  Note questionable activity nearby.  Are people coming and going, or is the area unusually quiet?  Are there obstacles or hiding places in the area?  Make sure that you’re parked in a well-lit, visible location and that you can’t be blocked in by another vehicle.  If you’ll be working after hours, tell others about your schedule. When showing a property, leave the exit doors unlocked for a quick exit while you and your clients are inside.  As you view each room, let the client enter first and always be closest to the exit.  If you must show a property after dark, turn on every light as you tour a property and keep blinds and curtains open. 

3.   Keep your business separate from your personal life.  Set up business accounts on Facebook, Twitter, or any social media sites.  This will help protect your personal photos, posts, and other information from access by people you don’t know.  Dress professionally and don’t wear expensive jewelry.  Store your purse, iPad or other valuable items in the trunk of your car.  Buy a personal security app for your cell phone, and always keep your cell phone in your hands.

What’s the Good News for September?

DHL3DHL expands in North Texas.  The shipping company just moved into its new 50,000-square-foot warehouse in Carrollton, adding 70 new jobs to meet demand for international commerce.  Now, the company has two facilities handling incoming and outgoing packages in North Texas. Greg Hewitt, CEO of DHL Express, said the company wants to make DFW Airport an international gateway for packages from as far away as Asia and Europe, and the company is in talks currently with DFW Airport customs officials.  The freight carrier also wants to open a third warehouse in Fort Worth, and they are currently searching for real estate to make that a reality.  DHL’s current facility in north Grand Prairie near DFW Airport was at capacity, prompting them to open the Carrollton facility. The new location off Interstate 35E is centrally located for their delivery routes in the eastern half of the Metroplex, Hewitt said.  DFW Airport is already a cargo hub which handled 829,019 U.S. tons of cargo and mail in 2016, up 12.7% from the previous year, according to the airport.

NICHE4North Texas fared well in Niche.com’s 2018 Best Public High School in Texas list. Niche.com, a website that analyzes neighborhood and schools data, recently released its 2018 Best Public High Schools in Texas list.  Of the top-100 ranked high schools in Texas, 38 are located in North Texas.  Frisco Independent School District had the most high schools on the list, with six.  And the best high school in North Texas? That distinction belongs to Dallas Independent School District’s School for the Talented & Gifted.  Carroll Senior High in Southlake ranked #12 overall, while Coppell came in at #14 and Flower Mound High at #26.   

Pecan Square Master Planned Development to begin construction later this year. The town of Northlake, along the Alliance I-35W corridor, is surrounded on three sides by the regional growth surge: Fort Worth to the south, Denton to the north, and Flower Mound/Argyle to the east.  Northlake is building - 6.jpgapproximately the same total size(32-square-miles) as the Town of Flower Mound to its east. Opportunities for future development are limited, however, because almost 1/3 of its land is in a floodplain, plus the existence of gas wells and distribution lines further limit future development.  Pecan Square is a Hillwood proposed mixed-use, master-planned development– made up of three tracts (Young, Gibbs and Thompson).  The proposed Pecan Square development will include a mix of commercial and residential uses with a mix of lot sizes and densities, located on 1,157-acres west and south of the I-35W and FM 407 intersection, across 407 from Harvest.  The zoning requests were approved in April 2017, and the Pecan Square development is expected to begin construction later this year, with models open by spring 2019.  The number of homes have yet to be finalized but could exceed 3,000.

Nordstrom4A Nordstrom that doesn’t stock clothes?! Innovation continues in all sectors of the economy.  In Q1 2017, Nordstrom experienced a 6.8% decline in retail store sales, and an 11% increase in online sales.  Then in Q2, online sales were up 20% year over year. The department store announced 09/11/17 that its new concept, Nordstrom Local, will be a 3,000-square foot store (their retail stores average 140,000 square feet) where customers can do things like try on clothes with a stylist, get manicures, and order coffee — or even wine or beer. Nordstrom said this location won’t stock accessories or clothing itself, but that people can order items for same-day try-on and pickup at the store.  The store will feature in-store tailoring and alterations. The goal is a personalized, faster, easier shopping experience.  Their advertisements are catchy – a Nordstrom’s that doesn’t stock clothes?  And they don’t mention anything about lower prices.  The first location will open in West Hollywood, CA on October 3rd.

DFW Airport to add Wow Air in May 2018. Wowair.com is an ultra low-cost carrier that has announced it will fly passengers nonstop from DFW to Reykjavik, Iceland, for $99 one way.  The CEO of Wow says he wants many to experience his homeland.  The airline will also offer $149 one way fares to Paris, Frankfurt, London and Barcelona, which will then connect passengers to 22 destinations in Europe on the airline. While the fares are cheap, Wow Air charges fees for additional services – for example, on a flight from New York to Iceland, a carry-on bag costs $40, checked luggage costs $50, a seat assignment in the front of the plane costs $10 and snacks and water cost extra.  DFW will be Wow Air’s 13th destination in the U.S., the latest in the Icelandic carrier’s growing network. Wow Air is the first budget carrier to service DFW. Wow Air said it will use an Airbus A330 aircraft on the route to Iceland that will depart DFW three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip Of The Week! 

 

5 WAYS TO BOOST EMAIL OPEN RATES*

Email marketing has changed with the times.  It’s still a great tool, but only if you know how to use it, which means writing awesome subject lines and sending relevant content.  Research shows that 33% of email recipients decide whether or not to open an email based on the subject line alone.  How do you persuade them to read on?
 
1.  KEEP IT SHORT AND SWEET – Ideally, your subject line should be less than 50 characters.  That’s because nearly half of emails are opened on mobile devices, cutting off subject lines.  (Check out http://zurb.com/playground/testsubject for a nifty tool that lets you see how your sender name, subject line, and pre-header text will appear on various smartphones.)  
 
2.  BE COMPELLING – Whenever possible, pick active over passive words.  For example, “Don’t make this #1 home buying mistake” sounds more interesting and enticing than “Common home buyer mistake.”
 
3.  ADD PERSONALIZATION – Inserting a name or location into a subject line can help build rapport (“Good morning Alex!”).  Most email marketing platforms can accommodate this, even for large mailings.  This technique works for individual emails too.  For example, if your message is following up on a referral, use the subject line, “Janelle Moore referred me to you.”  To personalize birthday email messages while also adding an element of enticement, try “Happy Birthday Sue – surprise inside!”
 
4.  DON’T GO OVERBOARD – Consumers are turned off by exaggerated offers and false deadline threats, resulting in lost trust and rapport.  Similarly, don’t attempt to imply urgency or importance by using all caps or too many exclamation points.  Not only are these tactics ineffective, they can also hurt your future email delivery rates.  A whopping 69% of email recipients report email as spam based solely on the subject line.
 
5.  BE RELEVANT – The best email marketing campaigns reflect a solid understanding of your customers’ interests and needs.  Put yourself in the recipients’ shoes and ask, “Why did I get this?”  The answer should be apparent in the subject line and the body of the message.  You’ll gain similar insight by simply listening to your clients and noting their most common questions and concerns.  Jot them down and refer back to your list for an ongoing source of email inspiration.

Sellers saying “Now is a good time to sell!”

shutterstock_1638721Many homeowners have been reluctant to list their homes for sale – some by choice, some for fear of being unable to afford a new home, or of coming out in the red.

71% of survey respondents believe now is a good time to sell
Recently released findings from a survey by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) show more homeowners are ready to move on and unload… or, at least, say they are. Seventy-one percent of survey respondents for the quarterly Housing Opportunities and Market Experience (HOME) report believe now is a good time to sell, an increase from 69 percent the previous quarter and 61 percent one year ago.

“There are just not enough homeowners deciding to sell because they’re either content where they are, holding off until they build more equity, or hesitant seeing as it will be difficult to find an affordable home to buy,” says Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR. “As a result, inventory conditions have worsened and are restricting sales from breaking out while contributing to price appreciation that remains far above income growth. Perhaps this notable uptick in seller confidence will translate to more added inventory later this year. Low housing turnover is one of the roots of the ongoing supply and affordability problems plaguing many markets.”

Renters less sure about their home-buying prospects
Renters, however, are less sure about their home-buying prospects. Fifty-two percent of renters surveyed believe now is a good time to buy a home, a decrease from 56 percent the previous quarter and 62 percent one year ago. Eighty percent of homeowners surveyed, to compare, believe now is a good time to buy. Forty-two percent of respondents believe homes are affordable, with respondents living in the Midwest most likely to believe homes are affordable and respondents living in the West least likely to believe homes are affordable.

Business 01Survey respondents are reining in their optimism in the economy, as well, according to the report. Fifty-four percent of those surveyed believe the economy is improving, which is in contrast to a record 62 percent the previous quarter. (Homeowners, notably, tend to be more optimistic about the economy.) The survey’s Personal Financial Outlook Index, which gauges respondents’ sentiment on their financial situation over the next six months, dropped to 57.2 in June.

“It should come as little surprise that the confidence reading among renters has fallen every month since January (64.8) and currently sits at its lowest level (53.8) since tracking began in March 2015 (65.7),” Yun says. “Paying more in rent each year and seeing home prices outpace their incomes is discouraging, and it’s unfortunately pushing homeownership further away – especially for those living in expensive metro areas on the East and West Coast.”

New Home - family - 01Twenty percent of respondents, especially those with annual incomes less than $50,000 and/or under age 34, would consider moving to a more affordable area.

“Areas with strong job markets but high home prices risk a migration of middle-class households to other parts of the country if rising housing costs in those areas are not contained through a significant ramp-up in new home construction,” Yun says.
