The Housing Market is a Win for Buyers and Sellers

Key Takeaways:

  • Ignore the negative news—the market is coming back down to earth
  • Homeowners have record equity, and buyers have more inventory
  • This is a great time to make a move in the market, so contact us today!

You might hear a lot of doom and gloom news about the housing market lately, but let’s put it in perspective. The COVID-19 global pandemic caused unprecedented disruptions to financial markets, including housing. Now, with everyone ready to move forward, the historic hot housing market is returning to normal. Let’s look at what that means for buyers and sellers. 

The current housing market and forecast 

Dreaming of new home

Our last blog post looked at mortgage rates in their historical context. While today’s rates range between 5-6% and are certainly higher than homebuyers’ rates during the COVID-19 pandemic, they’re nothing extraordinary. Today’s rates are still far below the all-time high of 18.45% set back in the 1980s! 

A recent report by Fannie Mae forecasts that over the next 12 months, US consumers anticipate home prices to fall for the first time in two years. With potential buyers expecting further price declines and sellers not keen on giving up their lower, fixed mortgage rate, now is the time to buy or sell your home.

However, for first-time homebuyers seeking to make a move, news of continued cooling of home prices is welcome, which will keep demand high. While current homeowners considering selling may be concerned that they missed the window to realize their equity gains or will lose out on their current lower mortgage rate, it’s important to remember the larger historical trends regarding real estate investments. And, if you’re purchasing another home, you have more homes to choose from.

What home sellers need to know right now

Don’t listen to the news cycle pedaling doom and gloom about your equity gains and home value. Buying or selling property is always a good investment. The real estate market always presents opportunities, and home prices are simply moderating from historic highs. 

Moreover, homeownership is a long-term asset that pays out over time, and the record equity gains of the past few years that current homeowners have enjoyed aren’t likely to ever happen again. So, while home prices are cooling off, the decline is less than 1%, leaving those equity gains intact when you decide it’s time to sell.

What home buyers need to know right now

Happy couple sold home sign.

CoStar Group, an online real estate analytics provider, recently reported negative growth in asking rental prices for the first time in 20 months, falling 0.1%. While this is undoubtedly welcome news for renters and would-be homeowners battling skyrocketing rental prices, the cost of rent remains a high hurdle for many to clear every month. 

For potential homebuyers wondering if now is the time to stop paying rent and move toward homeownership, it’s worth remembering that owning a home will always be a better long-term investment of your money than renting. 

So, despite a new Fannie May survey declaring that around half of today’s consumers hold a negative view of the market and think it would be difficult to get a mortgage today, this is overly pessimistic. Moreover, there are numerous loan options for qualifying buyers, such as first-time buyers and veteran programs. 

Getting a mortgage is one of the most significant financial moves a person will ever make, and preparation is critical. So before you apply, spend some time ensuring that your credit and finances are in order. Because when you find your perfect home, you’ll want to be able to make an offer immediately.

Take the Next Step

If you’re ready to make a move, don’t get caught up in the frenzy of negative news. Instead, work with your local team that knows the micro-housing market in your area. Our real estate agents have decades of experience and understand how to help you navigate the market. Contact us today to figure out your best options for buying and selling your home!

Growing Your Passive Income Stream with Rental Properties

Description automatically generated with low confidence

Here is a question I want you to ponder.

What is the shortest and most reliable route that you or anyone can use to change their financial destiny and arrive at a place of financial freedom? Depending on whom you ask, you will get answers like work hard and smart, have a great business idea, invent something, or save and invest.

While all these are valid answers, they may not always bring you to a life that is free of financial worries. Each method’s ability to reach the desired goal depends on how well it meets that one requirement which is the most important factor when trying to achieve a life of financial freedom.

What is the critical factor that serves as the basic foundation for wealth-building?

You can separate how much money you earn from how much effort you invest in the thing that makes you that money. When your income-earning ability is no longer limited to your physical labor, you free yourself from the constraints of your limited time and energy.

If you are committed to your goal of building wealth, the most important thing you can do for yourself is to become adept at identifying, managing, and maximizing opportunities that make it possible to consistently earn a lot of money without necessarily having to do a lot of work.

This kind of income is known as passive income.

Non-passive income sources depend on your physical presence and direct effort to make money. They stop yielding income as soon as you stop contributing your physical presence or energy. Their income-earning ability is limited to how many man-hours you invest.

But how many hours do you think you would need to work to be able to earn up to one million dollars in a single year? The answer to that question will tell you why non-passive income sources are not the recommended path for pursuing wealth.

How can you get started with earning passive income?

Passive income through rental properties

Although there are several different ways to earn passive income, Keyrenter Hampton Roads advises the best one is putting your money into income-generating real estate, and rental properties. Why is owning rental properties a better source of passive income than investing in stock or bonds?

  • Steady and substantial income

Both real estate and stocks can serve as sources of passive income. But rental properties are better because the income is more predictable than stocks. As a landlord, you often know how much rental income to expect and when to expect it.

  • A hedge against inflation

Unlike stocks, income from a rental property keeps pace with the rate of inflation. This is because as inflation forces the prices of goods and services upward, so the rental rate for your property is also pushed higher.

  • Tax advantages

Real estate offers tax incentives that are not available when investing in other asset classes. These tax deductions can be made from the everyday expenses of operating the property. They offer a way for landlords to increase their profits.

Strategies for earning passive income from rental properties

To make money from real estate, you must understand the following things about rental properties:

  • Types of rental properties

There are two kinds of rental properties – commercial and residential – and within these two broad categories, there are several sub-categories. Before you buy any property, make sure you understand the different types of rental properties.

  • Location

The most important factor in the performance of a property is its location. The neighborhood where a rental is located is a bigger factor than the physical qualities of the property. Learn how to evaluate the viability of different locations before you invest.

  • Leverage

Your ability to get approved for a loan and negotiate the best terms is critical to your success. The cost of capital is a huge factor in how much passive income you earn from your property. If you don’t know much about this, hire a mortgage broker.

  • Know your numbers

Before you buy a property, find out the potential income from the property (based on the rental rate) and your projected operational costs. Take the time to look at numbers like the vacancy rate for the property or similar properties in the area.

  • Hire a property manager

Finally, you should know that real estate is not entirely a passive investment like stocks. Managing a rental property requires a lot of time and expertise. But there is a simple way to get around this problem and make the asset passive; you can hire a property manager.

Hiring a property manager to oversee your rental property is what transforms it from a non-passive form of investment into a source of passive income. A property manager takes on the responsibility of making the rental property work in exchange for a share of the profits.

7 Tips to Prepare Your Home for Fall

Another fall season is approaching, which means it’s time to give a home a little upgrade. Late summer and early fall days are ideal for getting your house in order, so you don’t have to worry later. After you prepare your home for fall, you’ll enjoy the warmth, comfort, and fall aesthetics that come with it. So, make sure to keep reading and put the tips our team prepared for you to good use!

1 – Repair and fix

Examine your home and see if there’s anything in your home you’d have to repair. Electricity, pipes, windows – they all matter. If you’re using an air conditioner as a heating option, make sure to clean it thoroughly from the inside. Fix the doors and windows if necessary. That way, the heat you get from an air conditioner or fireplace won’t leave the room. If living in a house, make sure not to skip chimney cleaning. 

2 – Give your home a fresh new look

Do you plan to refurbish your home for the fall season? In that case, draw a plan and hire an interior designer to help you upgrade your home. The designer will listen to your wishes, check your home, and come up with a solution. That way, you’ll avoid unintentional mistakes people tend to make when they get to paint and have a brush in their hands. Feel free to ask the designer about the ideas when it comes to the furniture setup. This slight yet noticeable change will also give some novelty to your home.

3 – Clean up your fireplace

Dust and dirt in a fireplace accumulate over the summer. However, during fall, it’s the last part of your living room you want to neglect. If you want to have a nice fire warming you up, then put the gloves on and equip yourself with cleaning tools. From then on, make sure to maintain your fireplace regularly.

4 – Get your patio ready for fall too

Just because the summer is almost over doesn’t mean you can’t spend time outside. The patio is also a part of a home you should get ready for fall. All you need to do is give it a clean, change the furniture set up, add some warm blankets and you’re all set! If possible, purchase a heater so you can spend chilly fall days outside for longer.

You’ll be glad you have a prepared patio once the temperatures go down. Whether you plan to throw a mini party or bond with people over a barbecue –  your patio will serve you well. You can add garden lights and therefore make it possible to have a nice get-together time outside even when the sun goes down. After all, days are getting shorter and shorter. 

5 – Make your home feel cozy

It’s time for blankets and fall color schemes! If you’re a fan of fall, then you’ll enjoy the process of redecorating more than anyone. The good news is that it doesn’t take too much effort to bring fall aesthetics into your home. The fall-themed decor here and there and scents like apple, cinnamon, or sandalwood will do just fine.

Fall season is a perfect excuse to make your home cozy.

When you shop for a home, pay attention to blankets. Find those in dark brown, dark red, or purple colors. See if there are complementary pillows that would add extra coziness to your home. Next, check if there are comfy rugs in dark neutral tones. Pick the ones that keep all elements in the room together and your feet warm. If you’re a pet owner, then focus on pet-friendly rugs that benefit you and your pet friend. Also, don’t forget to get something for your kitchen as well. Cups and bowls in the shape of a pumpkin or with fall-themed prints are the best choices. They are available online at affordable prices. 

6 – Take out fall and winter clothes

Make sure to put your summer clothes away and take out sweaters and hoodies. Transitioning to fall clothes is also a perfect opportunity to declutter and make more space in your wardrobe by storing clothes during fall/winter. So, take a look at your summer clothes. See if there are items that don’t fit your current style. Maybe there are shirts with a tag on them. Therefore, make the list of items you’re giving away or selling. Place them in ziplock bags and padded cardboard boxes. Store them somewhere safe.

Do the same with fall clothes you currently own. Maybe you’ll find clothing pieces you’d rather donate, give, or sell. After all, it’s good to treat yourself with fresh new clothing pieces and give up the old ones that don’t fit your current style and taste. 

7 – Clean your garage or basement


Last but not least, take time to get your garage or basement in order too. Throw away garbage, dust, clean, and disinfect. Call sanitization services to keep rodents and insects away. 

Move to your new home before it gets cold

If you plan to move to a completely new soon, then make sure to do it as soon as possible. Moving goes smoothly when the weather is good. You just have to book the right movers in advance since they get quite busy during the fall season, as recommended by relocation specialists at fourwinds-ksa.com. Before you move, prepare your home for fall.

On the other hand, if you’re just about to search for a new home, contact experienced realtors for guidance. Check their credentials and pick the best realtor who will help you find the kind of home you desire. It’s easy to navigate through the real estate market when you have a professional at your disposal. So, don’t hesitate to ask for guidance and make sure a home-buying process lasts less than it normally would.

Enjoy your upgraded home

Once you prepare your home for fall, you’ll be ready to welcome cold weather and rainy days in a warm and comfy home. Preparations for fall also mark the beginning of a new chapter, no matter if you’re moving or just refurbishing the current home. So, gather your family or friends to help you, and have fun in the process!
