Are You Confused by Today’s Real Estate News & Info? ME TOO!

Confused by real estate news and reports?

Fresno Real Estate

Fresno Real Estate

First of all let me say, me too (and I’m in real estate)!  One day you hear that things are “looking up and strong” and the next day it’s, “the market will be going down more from here.”  So who do you listen to? What are the facts?  Why all the confusion?  We all know how easy it is to predict the future!

First and foremost, no one knows what will be around the economic corner and the future of real estate. We wrote an article earlier this year titled, The Top 3 Reason NOT to buy a Home in 2012, which could easily be used to describe the best reasons to buy a home this year.  I’m sure if you were to Google, “top real estate predictions for 2012″ you would get every extreme of the spectrum of thought and analysis.

Either way I’m sure that reality lays between the banks of two extremes and only time will tell.  Confusing right?  This is why it is important for you to ask and answer a couple of questions to clear the clouds of confusion.  It is important for you to consider your own economic forecast/outlook, as it may be the only thing you have some insight into and may accurately predict. For instance, do you expect to be in your current job and career this time next year?  Do you expect your income to go up, down or stay the same?  What are the needs of your family this year and for next?  Answering these questions will give you some confidence and peace about the coming year.

If you decide that you may need to move or find a new home, we can help.  If you need additional help with determining your housing situation and options, please don’t hesitate to connect with us.  We would love to sit down with you and help you process (with no obligation) your situation and goals.

So what do you think about the next 6 months for the real estate market?  We would love to hear from you!

Is is still a good time to buy a home in Fresno?

Clovis North Homes

Fresno Real Estate

How to know if you should buy a Fresno Home?

“Is it still a good time to buy or sell a home in the Fresno and Clovis area?” Most likely this is  the most often asked question I receive these days.  It is no wonder when the economy looks bleak and everyone (even in the real estate business) has a different opinion.  My “typical” answer involves two different perspectives.

2 Perspectives on Home Buying

  1. “From a purely numbers stand point, this is still one of the best times in history to buy.” With interest rates still well below 5% (as of this blog date), inventory still relatively high and home values under valued – this is a great time to be making an investment in a Fresno or Clovis area home.
  2. The other side of the coin is that, “no this may not be the best time for you to buy.”  No individual or family has the same situation or reason(s) for buying.  For instance, some people are motivated by the low interest rates and yet given their current job/financial situation they would be better off waiting.  Others are looking to downsize their current home and buy something for less that better fits their present day needs.  In this case, although they will sell in a down market, the plus side is they may be able to pay cash for a smaller home or for a lessor mortgage – which makes for a great financial decision for years to come.

Whatever your situation may be it is helpful to process your choices with an objective 3rd party who  wants what is best for you and your family and to walk wisely into whatever choice you make. That is where we at Fresno Real Estate come in.  If you would like to talk about your current situation and options for buying or selling in today’s market email or call me today.  559.325.4043 or [email protected]

Spring is Here… Time to Buy a Home?

Fresno Home Buying is Heating Up!

Rainy Day in Fresno Ca

Rainy Day in Fresno Ca

As I sit in my house (working from home) on a cold and rainy Friday (the 13th) in Fresno CA my mind wanders to thoughts about the coming spring and summer of Fresno home buying.  You see, typically the spring and summer months are the busiest time of year for Fresno house hunting and buying and this year may prove to be even busier then most. Today is not exactly the kind of day most Fresno home buyers would be anxious to got look at homes, but there is an anxiousness in the air.  That anxiousness is coming from a competitive buyers market – meaning that although it is still a buyer’s market, the buyer’s are competing viciously with each other for the best of the best Fresno homes.  This climate will create quite a bit of drama for the spring and summer months for Fresno home buyers.   Most Fresno home buyer’s, especially first time home buyers want to know, “How do we get started with the home buying process?” – well they should!  If you are a Fresno home buyer thinking about buying a home this spring or summer you had better be equipped and ready to go!  We may just look back after this summer and be astonished at what happens.  GET READY!

As a side note, if you are a Fresno home seller, this may be one of the best selling season we have seen in years (IMO).  The current Fresno housing market is full of junk inventory as well as there being an overall lack of inventory.  It is important you find the right Fresno listing agent and get the most accurate idea of the value of your Fresno home in today’s market before moving forward.

If you are a Fresno home buyer (or even a seller looking to sell and buy) we can help!  Contact us today for more information 559.325.4043 and to get started!  happy house hunting!
