Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – As I was reading my e-trade magazines this morning I ran across this article and thought I should share it.

How to tell if your market is cooling and the ways you can adjust accordingly on behalf of your clients.

I’ll be doing the 2018 statistics for Pelican Bay in the very near future.  Some of the things they’ve mentioned in this article I can see happening in Pelican Bay.  The “hot sheet” with the daily changes in the Naples multiple listing service is showing more price reductions coming through in Pelican Bay.  I am also seeing more listings failing to sell. We may be headed for a market cooldown.

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  While you shouldn’t panic if the house doesn’t sell the moment you list it, you should begin to worry if the months start flying by without any real offers.

Source: 11 Reasons Why Your Home Isn’t Selling

The current market we are in is not one where you should get too aggressive with the listing price.  You’ll note the number one reason properties do not sell is due to over valuing the home.  It is so important to have your home priced right.  Buyers are out in the market looking at all sorts of different homes.  Based on what they have seen, they can tell an over priced listing in a heart beat.

Number 6 is also important.  If your home is vacant, it really can benefit from being staged.  A lot of Buyers have no vision when it comes to furniture placement.  An empty home doesn’t convey the “feeling” of a place that has been loved and enjoyed.  Money spent on staging is money well spent.

If you have any questions on these items, please feel free to call me at 239-594-2780 or e-mail me at: Lynn@NaplesBuys.com

Pelican Bay – Naples FL – Whether you are planning on selling your Pelican Bay home to downsize or you are helping parents sell and downsize, this article offers some great advice:

7 Efficient Tips for Downsizers

As I read this article I was taken back to the time I helped my Mother-in-law downsize.  The OHIO rule; Only Handle It Once really proved a challenge.  We ended up with too many “maybe” piles.  Item #3 hit the mark with my too.  I vividly remember asking my Mother-in-law WHY she needed 15 casseroles.  We also had a rooster collection we had to weed through.  After helping Mom downsize, I thought about what my family might have to go through helping my husband and I downsize.  You’ll be happy to know that I own only 4 casseroles of various sizes that are frequently used.

Downsizing is a challenge. The more prepared you are for sorting, packing, shipping, moving, donating and throwing out items the easier the job will be.  Should you need help in selling your home. I’m here to help!

I ran across this article today and thought you might find it interesting.

ORLANDO, Fla. – Jan. 15, 2015 – What does a ‘typical’ Fla. home buyer or seller look like?

While a single description doesn’t apply to every buyer and seller, the latest Florida 2014 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, compiled by the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) research staff and released by Florida Realtors provides some insights.

Florida 2014 highlights

Home buyer characteristics

  • 24 percent of home buyers were first-time buyers in Florida, compared to a national level of 33 percent
  • 14 percent of buyers purchased a multi-generational home because older children moved back, to save money or to take care of aging parents
  • The typical buyer was 54-years-old; the typical first-time buyer was 33; and the typical repeat buyer was 59
  • 67 percent of buyers were married

Characteristics of homes purchased

  • New home purchases continue to drag at a share of 18 percent
  • 81 percent of buyers purchased a detached single-family home
  • 21 percent of buyers over the age of 50 bought a home in senior-related housing

The home search process

  • 40 percent of home buyers nationally started their home search online; 12 percent relied on the Internet for information about the process
  • 91 percent of Florida buyers used the Internet in some way during the home search process, but only 12 percent used a mobile device – noticeably less than the 50 percent nationally who used a mobile device
  • 97 percent of Florida buyers view real estate agents as a source of useful information
  • The typical home buyer searched for 10 weeks and viewed 10 homes
  • 87 percent of Florida buyers were at least somewhat satisfied with the process

Home buying and real estate professionals

  • 85 percent of buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker
  • 35 percent of buyers found their agent through a referral from a friend or family member; 10 percent used an agent they had used before
  • 54 percent of recent Florida buyers only interviewed one agent before choosing representation
  • 89 percent of buyers would use their agent again or recommend them to others

Financing the home purchase

  • 77 percent of Florida buyers financed their home purchase – less than the 88 percent who did so nationally
  • 25 percent of buyers said the mortgage application and approval process was somewhat more difficult than expected; 24 percent said it was much more difficult than expected
  • In Florida, 82 percent of buyers believe their home is a good financial investment

Home sellers and the selling experience

  • The typical seller lived in their home for 11 years
  • 87 percent of sellers were assisted by a real estate agent
  • In Florida, sellers typically sold their homes for 97 percent of the listing price, though 50 percent reduced their asking price at least once
  • 15 percent of sellers had to delay their home sale because the value of their home was worth less than their mortgage
  • 29 percent of sellers offered incentives to attract buyers – most often assistance with home warranty policies and closing costs

Home selling and real estate professionals

  • 35 percent of Florida sellers using a real estate agent relied on a referral from friends or family; 21 percent used an agent they worked with previously
  • 65 percent of home sellers only contacted one agent before selecting one
  • 92 percent of sellers reported that their home was listed or advertised on a multiple listing (MLS) website
  • Among sellers who used an agent, 81 percent said they would definitely (68 percent) or probably (13 percent) use that real estate agent again or recommend him or her to others

For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) sellers

  • 12 percent of Florida home sellers sold their home without the assistance of a real estate agent. Of those sellers, 33 percent already knew the buyer
  • 8 percent of Florida FSBO sellers who did not already know the buyer sold after the buyer contacted them
  • 50 percent of Florida FSBO sellers said they went the independent route because they did not want to pay a fee or commission
