The 2019 Year is coming to an end! See what the Real Estate Expert predict for 2020!

December 23, 2019

 | 

Brian Buffini, a well-known real estate trainer and speaker, recently shared his real estate predictions for 2020. Buffini spoke about the positive fundamentals for the economy:

  1. Very low inflation rate of 1.8%
  2. Very low unemployment of 3.6%
  3. High labor participation rate of 63.3%
  4. High consumer confidence of 96+

Buffini agreed with Lawrence Yun, NAR’s Chief Economist, recap and predictions for the real estate market.

                                                          2018              2019                2020
   New home sales                      627,000         701,000           750,000

Existing home sales                     5.34M             5.46M               5.56M

Median price growth                     5.7%               4.9%                  4.3%

30-year interest rate                     4.7%              3.7%                 3.75%

 

As you can see, the prediction is for new home sales and existing home sales to continue to grow, price increases to slow down slightly and interest rates to stay low. All very good news.

 

The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for November 2019 also show positives for our local real estate market. Pending sales are up 6.8% year to date, closed sales are up 4.5%, median sales price is up 5.2% and the average sales price is up 3.5%.

 

The inventory of homes for sale in November is 8,427 which is down 15% from last November. This is the smallest amount of homes available since January 2018. There is a 3.1 months supply of inventory which is down 20.5% from last November.

 

We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you for all the past support and referrals and let’s make 2020 the best year ever.

December 19, 2019

Posted by in News

Getting a home ready to sell goes far beyond putting up a For Sale sign and snapping a few photos. Often, an agent has to put in a little elbow grease as well. Few know this better than Davidson Realty agent Suzy Evans.

 

When seller Rich Regan contacted Suzy at the recommendation of friends, she was ready with an arsenal of expert insights and time-tested resources to help him sell.

 

He knew right away he was in good hands. “Suzy sold me with her knowledge of condos in my area,” said Rich, who was looking to sell his condominium in the Avila community of Palencia.

Cornerstone’s Brenda Williamson discusses 3 common lending questions

November 27, 2019

 | 

As loan officers, we hear all kinds of questions and “what ifs” pertaining to the lending process. Here are a few of those questions to which you may find surprising answers.

 

I’m buying my first home and my parents offered to pay my earnest money deposit. Is that okay?

 

While your parents are very generous, your earnest money check absolutely must come from your own checking or savings account, and it must be written on your own personal check. If you are unable to pay the earnest money needed at the time of contract (or someone offers to pay for you), it is crucial that you reach out to your loan officer immediately to discuss the best way to handle this.

 

Also, talk to your loan officer before accepting gift funds from a family member to help you buy a home. The donor will need to meet documentation requirements for the gift funds to be used.

 

We’re in the midst of buying a house and I’m thinking about asking for a raise at work. Is that okay?
