2012 2nd Quarter Top Turnaround Towns

Pheonix topped Realtor.com’s top turnaround towns list for the 2nd straight quarter of 2012.  However, Boise ranked #4!!!  The list ranks 146 real estate markets by both current inventory and median list prices.  Median list prices in Phoenix, AZ were up 29.7% in the 2nd quarter compared to the same quarter in 2011.  This is the most substantial increase in median list prices monitored by Realtor.com.  The greater Boise area saw a median price increase of 19.6 percent—WOW!

The housing market continues to mend and almost 70% of the markets studied saw median price increases which only 13% of the markets studied were still in a declining market.

Realtor.com’s Top Turnaround Towns for the 2nd Quarter are:

  • Phoenix-Mesa, Ariz.: +29.7 percent/-44.4 percent (% change in median list price/% change in inventory)

End of Summer Checklist for Home Owners

End of Summer Checklist for Home Owners

As we near the end of the summer season, it’s a great time to think ahead about home maintenance projects that should be completed prior to the colder weather hitting.  While the weather is warm & comfortable and prior to September and October, it is important to conduct a “walk-around” of your home in order to make a punch list of problematic areas.  Some areas of concerns should be able to be repaired by a non-professional while alternate repairs may need assistance from an “expert”.

End of summer projects include:

1)       Outdoor painting.  If unable to paint the entire exterior of a home, it is suggested that touch up painting is performed on the rough areas of the siding.  If there is peeling paint then it will be important to scrape, sand, primer and re-paint the areas of concern.

2)      Outdoor caulking & sealing.  It is vital for your energy bills during the winter to ensure that all of the windows are checked for leaks or cracks.  Leaks or cracks will obviously mean higher heating bills due to the loss of heat from your home.

3)      Concrete & Asphalt patching.  If having an asphalt driveway then it is wise to repair any asphalt cracks or holes with an asphalt patching material.  It is wise to seal asphalt every other year.  If having a concrete driveway or sidewalk then cracks or holes can be repaired with an epoxy material.

4)      Patio & Deck Maintenance.  Rotted planks should be replaced, stained or painted as needed.  Debris should be cleared.  In regard to paver or brick patios, missing bricks or pavers should be replaced, level off areas that tree roots may have pushed the pavers or bricks “up” and re-grout any areas of the patio which may have been degraded.

5)      Landscaping. Keep exterior landscaping attractive. Weeds should be pulled, dropped fruit from fruit trees and nuts removed to deter wildlife and trees and bushes trimmed away from the home.

Home Sales Continue to Improve

Although homes sales in July fell below the highs of June, July sales are still at their highest levels since the housing peak of 2007.

167 newly constructed homes were sold in the Boise area in July which is a 2 year high.  681 existing homes were sold which is slightly above the average for the year.

Ada and Canyon Counties also say home prices increased in July when compared to 2011.  In Ada County, existing homes sold for an average of $182,000—up 9% from 2011.  In Canyon County (has had less re-sales due to smaller existing inventory) the average existing home sale price was $108,000—up 22% from this same time last year.  Wow, the housing market is finally starting to mend!

Since January 1 of 2012, 157 new homes have changed hands in Canyon County.  This already surpasses home sales from all of 2011.  However, new construction sales in Canyon County (Idaho 2nd most populous area) are well below the pace of ’05 & ’06 when nearly 2000 homes were sold annually.

As of the first of August, Ada County had slightly more than 3 months inventory of existing homes at the current sales rate.  Canyon County has less than a 3 months’ supply of inventory.

Home Values Increase for the First Time in 5 Years!

Home Values Increase for the First Time in 5 Years!

Home values are at the bottom and finally bouncing back, according to a recent industry report.

In the United States, values of homes increase .2% to a median price of $149,300 during the 2nd quarter of 2012.  This is the 1st annual increase since 2007 according to Zillow.com.  Home pricing was also up 2.1% from the first quarter.

Although the month of June marked the 4th month in a row of home value increases, home pricing is still down nearly 24% since the first of 2007.

It is clear that the home values have hit bottom in the majority of the Nation.  Despite the lower than expected job growth, the housing recovery is doing very well.

Most “experts” were predicting a housing recovery late in 2012 so the new statistics coming in are better than expected news.

Also, the S & P/Case-Shiller home price index (an alternate source of information) also reported that prices of homes in 20 major markets increased 1.3% in April—the 1st monthly increase in 180 days.

Foreclosures remain the largest risk to the housing market recovery and the pace of foreclosure processing is expected to gain steam.  Most experts feel that the housing market will continue to recover yet at relatively marginal rate over the next year.

Home price increases will also cause some current homeowners which have been waiting for values to increase to place their homes on the market.  The additional inventory may cool the home price increase trend for some time.
