4 Key Signs Indicate a Stable Housing Market (yes, even in an election year)

With the election only a month away, I find many clients wonder…is this the right time to buy or sell my home?

Let’s take a look at the past year with data from the Realtor® MLS database.

  1. Price increases are steady.  Over the past 12 months, the median list price has been rising steadily.
  2. The number of days on market remains steady, decreasing slightly.  Both of these factors indicate we are heading towards a Sellers market.

3. Inventory has remained stable, fluctuating between a 3 to 4 month supply of homes for sale.

4. The number of sales has been consistent (Oct numbers are not in yet).

Prices are creeping up, and buyers that were looking in the Spring can certainly see (and feel) the price increase when searching for a home.  They might need to be in that next price category to get the same type of home.

Interest rates will go up after the election.  No doubt about it.  Prepare now whether you plan to buy or sell this Fall or Spring 2017.  And always feel free to contact me about your specific real estate needs.  Happy to help you or your friends and family!

Improve Your Credit Score

Your credit score or FICO matters when purchasing a home. A high FICO can get you a lower interest rate saving you lots of money, so understanding how to improve your credit score is key. If you don’t know what your credit score is, go to www.MyFICO.com. This is the best resource and provides the most accurate credit score similar to what the banks will pull.

What makes up your FICO, you ask? Here are the five parts to your credit score:

  1. Your Payment History (about 35%)
  2. How Much You Owe (about 30%)
  3.  Length of Credit History (about 15%)
  4.  New Credit (about 10%)
  5. Other Factors (about 10%)

How do you improve your score?

  1.  Avoid Multiple Credit Inquiries. If it looks like you are opening too many different credit cards or lines of credit, it will reduce your score. For example, if you have credit inquires for a ‘no interest for a year’ store credit card, then a credit inquiry from a car dealership and another credit inquiry from a mortgage provider, it appears that you are going on a shopping spree. However, multiple inquires from one type of establishment (like a mortgage company) over a short period of time only represents one inquiry.
  2. Reduce Your Debt. If all of your debt (including mortgage) exceeds 36% of your monthly salary, you will probably need to lower your debt in order to get a loan.
  3. Pay on Time (or Early). If you are consistent with this over several months, you’ll really see your credit score improve. Setting up automatic payments and always paying more than the minimum due will help.
  4. Wait a Year if You’ve had Credit Problems. You will be penalized less for problems that are more than a year old.
  5. Get Your Finances in Order. Avoid major purchases, like a car loan, prior to purchasing a home. Also, transferring debt from one credit card to another also helps. And, paying off credit cards is ideal.
