Competition is Coming, Are You Thinking of Selling Your Home?

Competition is Coming, Are You Thinking of Selling Your Home? | Keeping Current Matters

The number of building permits issued for single-family homes is the best indicator of how many newly built homes will rise over the next few months. According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development Residential Sales Report, the number of these permits were up 7.4% over last year.

How will this impact buyers?

More inventory means more options. Lawrence Yun, NAR’s Chief Economistexplained this is good news for the housing market – especially for those looking to buy:

“This rise in single-family housing construction will help tame home price growth, and the increase in multifamily units should continue to help slow rent growth.”

How will this impact sellers?

More inventory means more competition. Today, because of the tremendous lack of inventory, a seller can expect:

  1. A great price on their home as buyers outbid each other for it
  2. A quick sale as buyers have so little to choose from
  3. Fewer hassles as buyers don’t want to “rock the boat” on the deal

With an increase in competition, the seller may not enjoy these same benefits. As Chief Economist Nela Richardson, added:

“Because existing home inventory has been so low for so long, new construction is taking a larger share of the market…Builders meet the buyers and see the demand firsthand.”

Bottom Line

If You’re Considering Selling, Act Now…

Definitely an aggressive headline. However, as the final data on the 2017 housing market rolls in, we can definitely say one thing: If you are considering selling, IT IS TIME TO LIST YOUR HOME!

How did we finish 2017?

  1. New-home sales were at their highest level in a decade.
  2. Sales of previously owned homes were at their highest level in more than a decade.
  3. Starts of single-family homes were their strongest in a decade and applications to build such properties advanced to the fastest pace since August 2007.

And Bloomberg Business just reported:

“America’s housing market is gearing up for a robust year ahead. Builders are more optimistic, demand is strong and lean inventory is keeping prices elevated.”

And the National Association of Realtors revealed that buyer traffic is stronger this winter than it was during the spring buying season last year.

The only challenge to the market is a severe lack of inventory. A balanced market would have a full six-month supply of homes for sale. Currently, there is less than a four-month supply of inventory. This represents a decrease in supply of 9.7% from the same time last year.

Oscar Advertisers Score On Social, Coldwell Banker Rules Facebook

Oscar Advertisers Score On Social, Coldwell Banker Rules Facebook

by Gavin O’Malley, Yesterday, 1:52 PM  ( originally posted: http://www.mediapost.com/publications/social-media-marketing-daily/ )

While “Birdman” won all the little gold men, on Sunday night, it wasn’t the Oscars’ only star.

On social media, Coldwell Banker stole the show on Facebook, and was among the Top 5 most mentioned brands on Twitter, according to social analytics firm Engagement Labs.

Playing to peoples’ soft spot, the real estate company inspired a collective “awwww” with its “Home’s Best Friend” campaign. Social media users couldn’t contain their enthusiasm for the TV spot, which featured dogs that have found homes with the help of Adopt-a-Pet.com.

Another brand that won the night with a positive, caring message was Anheuser-Busch’s Stella Artois. After promising to provide potable water to women in developing countries, the beer maker shot to second place on Facebook as well as Twitter.

Stella’s success is not surprising considering that marketers like to refer to the Academy Awards as “the Super Bowl for women.”

Like the Super Bowl, it has become customary for brands to compete for a share of social media voice during popular live events, which focus the attention of millions of consumers.

“Brands have the opportunity to capitalize on this second-screen experience by leveraging what’s trending in the live broadcast through their own social channels,” said Bryan Segal, CEO of Engagement Labs.

Among big winner, on Sunday night, Netflix showed other brands how to make the most of big live events, said Segal. “Throughout the awards ceremony, Netflix engaged with their followers about the movies that won or were nominated that are available on their platform.”

Netflix was the most talked about brand on Twitter, during the Oscars — thought it failed to make the Top 10 talked about brands on Facebook — according to Engagement Labs.

Across social media channels, other brands that did well on Oscar night included AARP, General Motors, McDonalds, Sprint, AT&T, Discover.
