Now Is The Perfect Time To Sell Your North Carolina Home

Real Estate in Charlotte NC

So far as we have seen in winter of 2017, homes for sale in the Carolinas continue to be in high demand.  Housing needs are being met in South Carolina, where there is currently a moderate supply for buyers, as it is one of the Top 10 States for Getting a Mortgage.  North Carolina lags behind, though the State still remains strong overall.  Homeowners should take note that now is still the perfect time to put your  North Carolina home for sale on the market!  Here are 5 reasons why:

1. Cities in North Carolina are ranked among the 10 healthiest US housing markets right now.  This includes Charlotte, as well as Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Concord, and Gastonia.

2. Serious buyers are the ones who browse for homes during the winter months.  With less competition, they are more likely to buy a home (and at their asking price), rather than engage in a bidding war.  Plus they will close on a home faster, which is important if needing to move-in on a deadline due to job relocation.

Now Is The Perfect Time To Sell Your North Carolina Home, Home Selling, NC Realtors, Showcase Realty

3. There has been an increase in consumer spending.  Just ask home builders, who have seen a rise in bart traffic so far in 2017, who are confident that the robust economy and job market will trigger first-time and move-up buyers to make housing purchases throughout the year.

4. Rental rates are higher than making monthly home loan payments.  The market is trending as an overall “buy territory” according to the BH&J IndexAs much as 30% of a renter’s income goes toward monthly rent payments, compared to a homeowner whose average mortgage payment is only 15% of monthly income.  In 2016, the average 1 bedroom rental was $838 in North Carolina, and $882 in South Carolina.

Among the biggest rent increases by city, Raleigh was ranked #3 at a 3.8%, and Winston-Salem was ranked #6 at 3.1%.  Homeowners in North Carolina have the advantage of not being one of the Worst States to Get a Mortgage.  The bottom line is that if renters or homeowners plan on staying where they are, it makes sense to own rather than rent, to take advantage of saving money in the long-term.

Now Is The Perfect Time To Sell Your North Carolina Home, Home Selling, NC Realtors, Showcase Realty

5. Home equity rates continue to increase Despite higher prices on homes for sale, the good news is that homes are valued at higher rates than before, and are only going to keep increasing as this year unfolds.  This will give homeowners some money where they need it: for home improvements, paying off debts, funding investment properties and other large purchases, and sending their children to college.

Sell Before The Busy Spring Market Begins

By selling your home in order to meet the current market demands, not only will you have a great Return on Investment (ROI) because of less competition, but the State will be able to maintain its healthy growth and continue to make room in its surging population for more new residents for the rest of 2017 and ensuing years.

Showcase Realty LLC serves homeowners by assisting with the sale or property management of their rental homes. Speak with our real estate experts today to see how you can enjoy the maximum return on your investment.

Your Place of Work Can Help Determine Where to Buy a Home

Your Place of Work Can Help Determine Where to Buy a Home

Experienced homeowners will tell you that it's all about location when you're thinking about where to buy a home. The good news is that they're partly right; location is a very important component of your decision!

However, a lot of home buyers think a “good location” is one that is located in a nice neighborhood, with nearby amenities such as malls, highways, parks and schools. While these are all good things to have nearby, what also makes a good location is being close to your place of work.

Your Place of Work Can Help Determine Where to Buy a Home

Nowadays a lot of people are telecommuting, allowing them to save on time and gas while working from home. This helps for homeowners who live far from their workspace, but the long commute may still be a factor when you're looking for your next home.

Lenders might consider your commute for the overall debt-to-income (DTI) ratio, which can greatly impact the amount of money you can borrow. Whether the seller looks at this ratio or not, buyers should be aware of it. With gas prices and traffic increasing, that extra-long and expensive commute to the office can hurt you financially.

A report from the Center for Housing Policy and the Center for Neighborhood Technology showed that there was a 44% increase in transportation expenses from 2000-2010 for households in large metro areas. According to the U.S. Censes data, many full-time workers (approximately 600,000) have a commute of at least 90 minutes and 50 miles every day.

Many buyers are intrigued by less expensive housing prices, which cause them to overlook the commuting factor. They might also forget to take into consideration how much they'll be spending in gas each month simply because home prices are attractive.

If you purchase a home with a long commute, then you might try asking your company about possible subsidies, carpool arrangements or options for working remotely. You can also use sites that assist with connecting people who live and work in the same area such as Craigslist.com and eRideShare.com.

Your Place of Work Can Help Determine Where to Buy a Home

Some cities do have a sponsored program with free online matching services for carpool or you can try asking your company to adjust hours when you come in and leave to avoid rush hour.

Cities that offer mass transit can be very beneficial to homeowners who have a lot of traveling to do. A bus or train commute gives drivers the chance to relax or even do extra work. Waterway ferries are also an option, offering a very scenic commute to work.

Your Place of Work Can Help Determine Where to Buy a Home

If you're thinking of buying a home, always weigh the pros and cons of your commute.

Do a little research about how far you'll need to go and which option for transportation makes the most sense.

When you buy a home, location is indeed important. Regardless of whether the home is a great price or not, consider the outside factors such as commute to make sure that you're getting a deal that benefits you financially and that you can sustain.

Visit commutesolutions.org for an online calculator that helps to determine how much you may spend a month to help you budget properly.
