When is the best time to sell a house in Laveen Arizona

When is the best time to sell a house in Laveen Arizona?

 

The question does come up a fair amount, it is “when is the best time to sell a house in Laveen Arizona?  Well the truth is, this is a pretty loaded question.  The article will address the question by looking at the following items, which will of course be explained:

  1. Looking at historical sales
  2. Values of properties
  3. Bringing it together and the “market”

 

My name is David Baker, and I am a Laveen realtor.  Been working and specializing in the South Phoenix/Laveen real estate market since I began selling homes full time back in 2004.  I started my career with a company called Keller Williams.  At this company I specialized working with buyers, and was part of a team concept.  This was during my first 2 years full time in the business.  I later made a move to Re/Max New Heights Realty which is based in South Phoenix area as well.  By this time I had about 4 years of full time experience working with both buyers and sellers.  It was during my time at Re/Max that I also began to help home owners who had fallen behind in payments to short sale their homes.  I am currently working with the HomeSmart Realty brokerage.  Does the brokerage I work for make any difference in the level of service I or any other agent can provide, NO.  At least that is my opinion.

I am a bilingual real estate agent speaking of course English and Spanish both fluently.  This really has been a great benefit to my clients, as they are able to get a larger marketing reach because of my ability to speak and market in 2 languages.  I also became really interested in on line marketing several years ago, and this also has been a great asset to help my clients sell their homes.  So in a nut shell, I am a bilingual real estate agent specializing in South Phoenix & Laveen who has over a decade experience selling homes and is very well versed at online marketing.

I mention a little about myself, because as you read this short article, it is good to know the source.  I will also be using information from the MLS (multiple listing service) as well as statistical data I collect myself to keep on top of the real estate market trends.  Some information given will also infer a certain amount of what I would call “my professional opinion”.

So, how can looking at historical sales inform us about when is the best time to sell a home in Laveen?

Unlike some other parts of the county, Laveen as a whole in my opinion does not have a very drastic seasonal fluctuation when it comes to sales.  As an example, if you lived in Minnesota, do you suppose the number of sales goes down drastically in the winter months?  Maybe you live in a town predominantly running off the attendance at the large local university?  Unlike other areas, my opinion is that the Laveen real estate sales are NOT affected too much by the seasons.  Now, that being said, there are MORE sales that do occur at some months of the year vs. others.

So here it is, the big secret of “the best time to sell a home in Laveen” is really from about April to September.  These are the periods of the year that see the MOST in terms of number of sales vs. the other months of the year.  Looking over the last several years one can see that the time from April through as late as September see’s the most number of sales.  The actual number of sales will fluctuate a bit from year to year, but it is still evident that those are the higher sale months in terms of units sold.  You can usually see on the low end about 42 sales a month to about 70 in the slower month.  In the higher volume months you can see over 90 sales in Laveen on a monthly basis.

Does that answer your questions as to when is the best time to sell your home?  Maybe to a certain extent, but let’s also consider values of properties, right?

So does it benefit a home owner to sell at one time of the year over another time of the year based on a possible higher sales price or value?  For this I refer to the data that helps me track the current market conditions for the Laveen real estate market.  I see no data that supports a higher sales price, based on the month of the year!  Again, that bears repeating, I show no data that supports being able to sell at a higher price just because of the time of year home goes to market.  As an example, a home that is worth $203,000 in the Laveen area at this time, would pretty much in theory sell at the same price if sold in March or in July!

 

Lastly let’s look at the market factors and how that could answer when is the best time to sell a home in Laveen.

The short answer is it really depends on the real estate market.  One can NOT determine if a certain time of the year will be better than another without looking at CURRENT real estate market conditions.  Ideally the best time to sell for a home owner would be during a “seller market”.  A seller market is a real estate market that is best described by a situation in which there is a low level of current housing inventory for sale, and as such buyers have less choices of homes.  Because of the lower inventory of homes on the market the buyers must often compete with others buyers to purchase the property.  This of course benefits the seller.  Often times you may see multiple offer situations, and this of course is the best thing for a seller so they can potentially negotiate the best deal.

 

Putting it all together, when is the best time to sell a home in Laveen?

When it really comes down to it, my opinion, the best time to sell is when you are ready.  Yes, there are more sales that tend to occur during the April to September time frame, but there is still a LOT of homes sold during the rest of the year as well, and that also includes the holidays!  Home values are not really affected by the time of the year the home is sold here in the Laveen area.  Lastly, the real estate market condition will always be what it will be.  At the time I am writing this article, the Laveen real estate market is experiencing a seller market.  So, as it happens, we are into the higher sales volume months, and we are also in a seller market.  So, at this point in time it is a GREAT time to sell your home in Laveen Az.  The current market conditions could help net a better offer, and really help you negotiate a better deal.

 

 

What repairs should be made to home before selling?

What repairs should be made to home before selling?

 

Wow, I have chosen a tough topic for my article, but a very important one that does address the question “what repairs should be made to home before selling?

 

Let us start with the assumption, all home owners that are considering selling want to maximize their profits.  How is this done?  Well it is done in several ways and those are things that need to be considered as well.  For example, in your opinion is the sale price the only indicator of how much money you will make?  I hope the answer was a resounding no!  Truth is a higher offer may not net you a better deal, and in the end how much money you net (money in pocket) is REALLY what counts!

 

Generally speaking when giving home values to home owners in the South Phoenix and Laveen area I will use recent home sales and even current competition to help determine value.  This article is really not meant to go into what is done to help determine value, but more so what repairs to be done to help value.  The values given will provide a low, high and of course an average/median price range.  Where in that range one falls really depends on condition of the home.  That is the purpose of this article, to help you the home owner/seller understand what potentially you could do to maximize your sales price or profit.

 

First things first, you must have a full understanding of what is going on in the local real estate market.  This goes beyond what a home’s value is, it is knowing the market trends.  Does the market benefit the buyer or seller?  If it benefits one or the other, how much does it benefit them?  As an example for most of us realtors, the 3 month inventory range is the middle point between the buyer and seller market.  It could be called a transitional market or balanced.  If inventory or turnover is below 3 months, then it is a seller market.  If the inventory or turnover is more than 3 months, it is more of a buyer market.  The further away from that 3 month point, the more it benefits one of the groups.  So the luxury home market for example has 17 months of inventory at this point in the Phoenix area, and this REALLY benefits buyers.  Buyers have a large inventory to choose from and as such can be picky, often get a home under asking price, and choose the best home at the best price.  Make sense?  On the other side, if there is say under 2 months inventory, then homes are selling more quickly and seller has upper hand.  Wow, if there were under 1 month’s inventory, you’d maybe see multiple offers and home selling in hours or days.

 

Second thing you need to know is what repairs to make to maximize your sales price.  This could very well be specific to different areas of town, but here in the South Phoenix and Laveen real estate market I can say that generally you want to make repairs that will help the home show better.  Notice that I did not say make improvements.  Improvements may help get you more money, but will you get a dollar for dollar return on your investment.  This does have to be looked at on a case by case basis.  I can say in general, just make sure that repairs done to the home are for those that will make home look better.  As examples, I would recommend painting a home but not putting in a new kitchen.  I would recommend a professional cleaning to make sure it shows well, but I would not recommend adding granite counters.  In short, really make cosmetic repairs to home that are not costly, will make the home look better and show at its best and that will likely get you a higher sale price.

I have worked with many home sellers in the Laveen and South Phoenix area, as I’m an area realtor and specialist.  There have been appointments I’ve gone to and listings I have taken where the seller was recommended to do NOTHING in preparation for the home going on market.  See, some home owners have done an excellent job of maintaining the home and making improvements.  Again, depending on condition the home value will fall within a range, and if home owners are happy with that range, then nothing needs to be done!

 

I’ve also gone on appointments and taken listings that I have made recommendations to the home owners for repairs to be made.  In those situations the home owner would be able to make a small investment in making some repairs, minor improvements to the home, in order to get a better offer on their home.  Again, most repairs I have suggested will depend on the kind of market we are currently in and if the home owner will get a dollar for dollar or better return on their repair.  I have been an active south phoenix and laveen realtor since 2004, and as such I know what can make a difference in the sales price.

 

Hope this article has helped you a bit in deciding which repairs should be made before selling your South Phoenix or Laveen home.  While there are always variables to consider, a good rule of thumb is to make repairs with how the home looks.  Now, I also assume that if you have broken plumbing, leaky toilet, electrical that does not work and such, that you would get those fixed anyway as you are living in the house, right?  You don’t live in the dark or walk through puddle to get to your room right?

If you have any questions on selling your home, and helping maximize your sales price here in the area of South Phoenix and Laveen give me a call.  I am after all in the business, and I would like to earn yours.

What Home improvements to make before Selling

New Roof Is Greatest Remodeling Value

Aside from the need to upgrade worn out features, two of the biggest reasons owners put money into remodeling are to increase the home’s value and to improve their enjoyment of the home. But according to a new report from the National Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), there’s not a lot of overlap between those two goals.

Interior projects the study examined:

New master suite
Kitchen upgrade
Complete kitchen renovation
Bathroom renovation
Add new bathroom
Basement conversion to living area
Attic conversion to living area
Insulation upgrade
Closet renovation
New wood flooring
Hardwood flooring refinish
HVAC replacement

The first-ever “Remodeling Impact Report” looks at the resale value and customer satisfaction of 12 interior and eight exterior projects. The projects range from upgrades (a new HVAC system) to full-scale remodels (a new master suite). Members of NARI reviewed specs and provided cost estimates for each project.

Projects with Greatest Cost Recovery

REALTORS® reported that three interior projects and two exterior projects—all estimated to cost under $10,000—provide the greatest cost recovery at resale:

Exterior projects the study examined:

New steel front door
New fiberglass front door
New garage door
New vinyl siding
New fiber-cement siding
New roofing
New vinyl windows
New wood windows

Projects That Make Owners Happiest

By contrast, owners who had actually completed one of the 20 home improvements being tracked in the study were asked how much the work increased their sense of happiness at home.  With one exception, it was the big-ticket items that brought the greatest sense of joy.

The resulting data was used to calculate the “Joy Score,” which combined the share of respondents who reported they were “happy” and “satisfied” when seeing their completed project and divided the share by 10 to create a ranking between 1 and 10. Higher Joy Scores indicate greater happiness from the project. Here are homeowners’ top five:

Projects That Appeal to Buyers

REALTORS® were also asked, regardless of cost, which improvements were most appealing for buyers. Not surprisingly, the top five interior projects were very similar to those that give owners the greatest joy—but REALTORS® said these big-ticket items aren’t the best in terms of payback when the home is sold. By contrast, REALTORS® said owners will likely recover more than 80 percent of the cost on four of the five exterior projects with the greatest buyer appeal.

The overall winner? When you look at intersection of buyer appeal, cost, return, and owner joy, a new roof appears to be the smartest remodeling investment. A home, after all, is first and foremost a shelter.

Is Selling My Home the Right Choice?

Is Selling My Home the Right Choice?

 

I have seen and heard some folks ask, “Is selling my home the right choice?”

Well this is really a loaded question, and one that can only be answered by the home owner.  My experience is that home owners sell for a variety of reasons.  If you are currently considering selling your home, you need to dig deep and find out why is it that you are considering the sale.  If you ask yourself some questions you may find out the answers, and can then determine if selling is the right choice.

 

For example, some questions to ask:

Does the home give you joy?  Does being a home owner in that particular home give you a sense of pride?  Sometimes you may find that you just don’t like the house.  Maybe the home is much more than you ever wanted to take on in term of maintenance or even updating.  I continually think that life is short, we must take the time to really enjoy it and get the most out of it.  If something is not giving you joy, maybe you need to consider selling.  If the home is giving you joy, then you now there really is no reason to consider sale.

 

Do you like the area you live?  You may love the home you’re in, but absolutely hate the area you live.  Ever have a home that is right next the worst neighbor ever.  Maybe it is next to a frat house that has loud parties EVERY night.  Maybe it is next to someone that is always working on their cars, revving engines and front drive looks like an industrial zone and not a housing community.  You may just not like the neighborhood or changes that often happen over time in different areas.  If you like it, then there really is no reason to consider a sale.  If you don’t like area, ask yourself it life would be better living somewhere else.  Life is short, I think you deserve to live where you want.

 

If you have kids, do you like the schools and the school system?  I’ve often seen home buyers base home buying decisions based on schools and their rating in an area.  You may be a home owner but only recently have had the need to send a kid to school.  Maybe you don’t like the school system, or have a preference to another school and district.  Again, life is short, make choices that will help you live the life you want.  You may be able to enroll your kid in the school of your choice, but what if the distance makes it time and cost prohibitive.  Again, make the choice to lead the life you want.

 

When it comes down to it the choice of whether selling a home is always that of the home owner.  If considering selling your home, then you need to make sure you understand why you’re considering.  If the reasoning makes sense, then you have answered your question and made a choice.

Most expensive home Sold – A weekly Update

Ok, so this is what I thought would be a fun continual post.  Give folks an idea of what is selling at the top of the price range in the Laveen area.  For this blog I will be looking at any and all types of properties such as condos, town homes, ranches and single family homes and will just look at what closed the last week.  These homes will of course have been the highest priced homes sold for the week.  You will see, as I do, that the Laveen area recently has not had TOO many high priced home sales.  What is average, and even below average prices for some areas, is indeed the high price range for us in Laveen.  For example, did you know that Mcdowell Mountain Ranch in NE Scottsdale averages about $525,000 on homes sold?  We are under $200,000 in Laveen.

Highest sale price in Laveen Az week of August 17, 205

Folks, sorry for the lapse between the posts for these past few weeks, but as it turns out realtors also must have some vacation.  Vacation is something that also helps a real estate agent maintain and keep his/her family.  If your a family person, you must also know that your presence is required at the home front with some consistency.  Also, during kids vacation from school (not every year) it is a great time to take the family and enjoy some time off.  That is what I did for the last couple of weeks, and since, it has been catch up for me.

So, to the point, what was the most expensive home sold in Laveen this past week?

3006 W Beautiful Ln 

2641 sq feet home situated on an acre of land.  Irrigated land, which is great.  Home also is within a gated community and one can have horses!!, Yeah!!!  I actually showed this home to a potential buyer as well, it really is a nice home and very well maintained.

Who is buying homes in Laveen AZ July 2015?

Who is buying homes in Laveen AZ July 2015?

 

Ever wonder, as a seller, who is buying homes in Laveen AZ?  Well, as a seller I would think this might be a good question to ask yourself.  At the very least, if you’re going to be selling your home, this should be a great question to ask your realtor.  I would also hope if you decide to sell your home that you choose to list your home with a local Laveen realtor that has both the knowledge and experience in the area.  It comes as no surprise to see (happens all the time) that people will entrust a large transaction to someone that is NOT even familiar with the area.  Truth, many people will hire a realtor that specializes in for example Cave Creek to come and sell their Laveen home.  Never mind that they have never even been to the area, have no buyers in the area, but they will still be trusted to deal with the sale.  I guess to each their own.  Back to the topic, who are the buyers looking to buy a home such as yours?

 

 

Laveen Az June 2015

Laveen Az June 2015

 

The above statistical analysis is for homes sold for the month of June 2015, and also compares a little to the same month last year.  What are some of the take a ways’ from this chart?  Well first off, to answer the question and title of my article, the folks currently buying Laveen homes are owner occupant buyers.  Gone are the days of investors coming in and paying cash, not requesting repairs and taking the home off your hands in “as is” condition.  I’ve marked above where it shows the number of FHA sales, conventional sales and cash.  Almost 60% of buyers are either buying with FHA or VA loans, and these loans are pretty specific to owner occupants.  There is also about 27 that were done conventional, which all told account for a vast majority of the buyers in Laveen for June 2015.

What else can we learn about buyers in the Laveen area?  Well right now the vast majority of homes that sold for the month of June 2015, about 53% were homes that were priced between $150,000 and $200,000.  Homes priced about $200,000, but below the $300,000 mark have been selling as well, but the inventory is much larger for that price range.  In other words the price range where most homes are selling, selling the quickest, have the least number of homes for sellers to compete against is the $150,000 to $200,000 price range.  Once you go over the $200,000 price range at this time, you are seeing a larger inventory of homes, and as such more properties that you as a seller may have to compete against to sell your home.

Does this help?  I hope so, as it gives you a couple of ideas as to what has been going on with the Laveen real estate market.  The lower price range is in a seller market which is of course going to benefit the seller.  You will see that homes in that price range may get more buyers to view the home, and subsequently also get more interested parties in wanting to buy the home.  While this may help you “NET” more money, I would not expect to get over market value for the sale of your home.  Why could you not expect to get over market value?  Well, if you look at the above chart again and my article, you’ll again notice that most homes being sold are FHA, VA or Conventional home loans.  Do you know what all these loans have in common?  The commonality of all these loans is the requirement for the home to have an appraisal performed.  This means that the home will need to have a professional appraiser out to the home and use comparable properties sold recently to determine the current market value.  So if all the homes in the area are selling for “x”, chances are the appraisal for your home will also come back as “x”. 

Are you looking to sell your Laveen home, and in need of a local Laveen Realtor?  You’re in luck, I’m a realtor and just happen to both live and specialize in the Laveen and South Phoenix area.  Let me put my knowledge and expertise to work for you, helping you NET the most money.  Chances are, I may even have a buyer in tow at this time.  One thing about a realtor specializing in the Laveen area, is that generally have potential buyers for the Laveen area.  Call me today, a consultation is free, and I would like the opportunity to earn your business.  David 602.373.6345

Question: Should I sale my Laveen home?

By David Baker Real Estate Agent

Should I sale my Laveen home?  This is a question that I get all the time as a Laveen real estate agent.  Been working in the business now for going on 10 years, and for some reason this keeps coming up for people.  Maybe deep down most home owners already know the answer but sometimes want to check with others to make sure it is indeed a good decision.

So I’m dedicating this article in trying to answer the question, Should I sale my Laveen home?  The answer may seem overly simplistic but it really is a simple question in most instances, at least it is for me as a real estate agent.  The answer really is dictated by the home owner’s personal or work life and what it is that they desire.  There are different reasons that people would consider moving and the can be things such as:

Relocating for work

Relocating for proximity to family

Health reasons

Looking to move up to a bigger home (family is growing in size)

Looking to move down to a smaller home (kids have gone off to college)

Divorce

Death in the family

…………………………………etc

These are really but a few reasons people decide to sell, and of course many more that run in all directions.  The real question that needs to be addressed when considering whether one should “sale my Laveen home”, is if it in the best interests of you, home owner. 

Should I sale my Laveen home, the financial side.  This really can have multiple sides to it, as it can be the financial side in terms of the money made at the end of the sale or it could also mean would one save money in some way if they were to sell the home.  The first is pretty simple to answer, just have a real estate agent give you an idea of current market value for the home and then deduct fees associated with the sale of a home.  This will give you an idea of the amount of money you will end up with in your pocket after covering all expenses associated with the sale, included any liens on the home such as taxes or loans.  If the number or amount of money after all expenses meets your needs, then this makes it easier to decide to move forward, right?  Also I implied that one could consider the sale of the home if it would mean saving money.  As an example somebody may have had a home with children that are now off to college and there is no need for the large home and all the expenses associated with owning the larger home(electric, gas, water, rooms not being used).  If that is the case (or similar type situation) then one can also look at fees associated with the sale of the home, but also look at estimates for payments on something that may be smaller.  Does the savings justify the sale of the home?  In both situations really it comes down to numbers and if the numbers make sense for the home owner.  A real estate agent can help you figure out those numbers, don’t be shy about asking.

 

What do you want out of your life?  This to me is a really important question to have answered, because in truth it can answer many questions and dictate the direction of your life.  What is important to you, and where and what do you want to be doing with your life.  Life is short, it goes by in the blink of an eye and shouldn’t you be doing with it what you enjoy?  Not only doing what you enjoy but maybe also being with those that are important to your life?  So if you desire to be in another area of town here in Phoenix, or if you want to be closer to your family in another state, then those are important reasons when asking yourself “should I sale my Laveen home”?  I have helped many people sell their homes that had grandkids in another state and wanted to be closer to the children.  I also have helped many buyers purchase horse property in Laveen and Phoenix, as it is a big goal for many in the area to own horse property.  Maybe you are pretty happy with your home over all but also happen to like working on your car, which in a subdivision means you’re working on your car in the driveway.  Problem with working on your car in a subdivision is that generally the HOA (home owners association) does not take too kindly to your auto repairing skills and may even access your fines because it is a violation of the policies to work on cars in the driveway.  So, choice needs to be made live the life you have not working on cars, or relocate so that you can live the life you want.

In summary, I really think that if you look at why you are wanting to sell your home and decide that it can make financial sense, then you have likely come to a conclusion.  The question of should I sale my laveen home becomes a lot easier to address when you have looked at both the financial reasons and the overall reason for making a move.
