Phoenix Rising: Is Our Housing Market Heating Up?



This is a very long article from http://inbusinessmag.com/ by Amy R Handler that talks about the current real estate market in Phoenix and what their opinion of the future market.

" Michael Orr, director of the Center for Real Estate Theory and Practice at the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, believes the Metro Phoenix real estate market is healing and stabilizing. “The idea that there is another bubble in the real estate market is absurd. We are just seeing a normal reaction to lack of supply. Prices are still below the long-term trend line and none of the conditions that define a bubble are currently in existence.”

That is what almost all the experts are saying including me.  The lack of activity in the new home markets is going to effect the current and future markets. Phoenix is in a very good real estate market, and you add in the lack of inventory you have a great profit center.

" What we’re seeing is a response to years of constraint, not the beginning of a bubble, according to Mark Stapp, Fred E. Taylor Professor in Real Estate and director of the Master of Real Estate Development program at W. P. Carey. “I think lending and the slow addition of supply will keep this moderated.” Stapp believes that lenders will bear the present state of the economy and people’s ability to pay. Pricing, he says, is driven by tight supply, and once supply is adjusted accordingly, percentage increases should slow down."

I agree with the lending and the addition of new home inventory the market will stay moderated in Phoenix, When the lending gets to a place were they get more borrowers in the system then I believe that prices will go up more than moderately. When there is money available buyers use it.  Lets face it America likes to live in nice real estate and if they can get the loans and afford the payment they will do it.

"Helping the comeback is the decline in foreclosures. So what’s behind that decline? Bielli believes the banks worked through all the foreclosures and returned homes to the market. With additional capital in Phoenix, investors purchased the homes and created business models, which included rentals. “Property management companies that are built near the foreclosed homes put renters in those homes. In Phoenix there’s been a definite correction of earlier problems,” Bielli explains."

There are a lot of investors that pay cash for their real estate and that alone will effect the foreclosure market.  Investors today are much better funded.

At the end of the day it's about getting the better real estate for your real estate needs.  Whether you are living in the home or using it for income you need a Realtor that understands the current real estate market.  Call Brett 602-363-6551 West USA Realty and 216-703-5740 Century 21 Premier Properties

Which Real Estate quality grade is your Investment Strategy?



When your looking at purchasing any type of investment real estate you always need to look at why you are investing and your needs.

For example do you need to build monthly income? Do you need to have immediate income? What do you want to invest in and where? Why is that a great area? Does that area have a good base for future growth?

These are questions that you should have answered before you buy real estate.  The other question you should ask when your looking to buy and hold real estate is one that most so called experts will not mention.  What quality of real estate do you want to buy? That includes many factors that are already in the primary purchasing city.

Having an a consistent income producing property and also building equity is the key to any income property.  To many times real estate companies buy just income producing assets that will have the least chance of building solid equity. They do this because there are many of them and that's how they make money! A very short sided strategy

The problem that you have is when the investor needs to sale a home. If that home is in a less than desirable area they could lose some money.  The real estate genius that I have learned is buying in better areas that produce good income and when you want to sale them you can., usually for a very good profit.

There are many companies selling you income real estate and letting their "vendors" do all the work including the management of those homes. What these companies sometimes fail to disclose is they make money on every home that you buy through their preferred "vendors". Your investment needs get all mixed up with many other investors that are just trying to make better decisions on income real estate.

As a Realtor and investor I offer a more boutique real estate investing format. Getting my clients some of the best deals in Ohio and Arizona. One of my clients that purchased two income properties from me earlier this year is buying another 1-2 properties in November. He is very happy with his income and his tenants are very quality.  The other key are the homes are in great areas and families flock to rent in these areas. He also has a great chance of building nice equity on his homes. 

Real Estate deals are not better when your buying with a lot of other investors through :"approved vendors".  There is a greater chance of you being unsuccessful and not getting what you thought you were.

We offer a more personalized system that focuses on your investment goals and getting the properties that have the best chance of making your real estate goals.  There is a difference in Realtors and Real Estate Investment systems.  Call Brett 216-703-5740 Century 21 Premier and 602-363-6551 West USA Realty.  Look at what my detailed system of finding you the right real estate and helping you with all your Real Estate goals.

This weeks Real Estate Video Updates 10-28-16



This weeks videos are great example of getting the homes done correctly. I thought that the homes would be finished and listed this week. unfortunately they needed a lot more finish work than I expected.  That takes time and me being there a lot more than most Realtors would be.

I needed to also meet the plumber at the 6182 Seven Hills home and figure out a way to replace some plumbing without tearing out drywall.  I looked at the problem and we worked out a way to remove it without replacing the drywall. That really will save time and energy on this home.

The Strongsville home had some issues this week that me and Lori had to stay until 6 pm on Wen to get figured out. We will have that home detailed out next week and ready to list.

It takes a lot of time and expertise to get these properties finished and done.  Being a Realtor and sometimes contractor is a huge asset for my clients properties.  Making changes in the process as a home is being done can make all the difference in making money on any project.

US Housing Market Forecast – Strong 2017 to 2020



This article goes through a huge process and projections of what the "These stats below collected from top research and reporting companies including NAR, Forisk, Trading Economics, and other real estate market researchers" see in the futures.

"You won’t find too many US housing forecasts beyond 2016/2017. Yet it’s fun and profitable to look ahead at what’s coming in real estate and investing.  If you’re a realtor looking for leads or a home buyer hoping to justify your intent to buy a home, or a rental property investor, the stats below should provide excellent insight. The US housing predictions are increasingly positive and that presents us with a new set of property buying and investment opportunities."

The low inventory and low new builds that are happening has 2017 looking good for real estate. We have had a long time for a market correction, about 8 years of it.  Let's look at what this story says in the next paragraph.

US housing starts and resales are on the rise 2017 to 2020 and beyond. And given the huge Generation Y have put off home ownership and are coming into their key buying years up to 2030, sales of homes and condos are predicted to continue strong well past 2020."

That is what they are seeing in the next 5 years. There will be a huge surge of home buyers that will need a place to live. This will force the market to get new builds going again and rentals properties will continue to go up in there rates and have low vacancies.

 The real estate market has also be strangled by the tight mortgage lending rules. That also benefits the current market with a lot of great mortgage paper that has current mortgages. I believe that new lenders will enter the market and cater to the higher down payment crowd of buyers. The X and Y generations are very stingy about spending a lot of money on stuff.  This will allow them to put more money down on a mortgage. 

With that being said it created a mixed real estate market.  Real Estate Investors will be effected by the low inventory and may not be able to get enough flip real estate for your portfolio. With the predictions of a great real estate market for the next 5 years, it might be a great time to look at high quality income real estate. Real Estate investors may want to look at some buy and hold strategies. 

That is why I have set up a property management in the Arizona real estate market.  Having income real estate is one thing, but you need a management company to handle all the details. I want my clients to get the best service and help keep their properties generating consistent income.

Needing a Realtor that understands the Income and Investment Real Estate market? Call Brett 216-703-5740 Century 21 Premier and 602-363-6551 West USA Realty. I have done 1000+ properties and counting......I look at real estate deals everyday!

Cleveland-area house prices down 8.6 percent from pre-recession peak

 

This article (report) comes from http://realestate.cleveland.com/ by Michelle Jarboe that talks about the home prices in the Cleveland Metro area still not where it was in 2006. That is great news and means we still have a lot of room to go.

"A Tuesday update to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Indices shows that prices kept rising during August. In the Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor area, house prices were up by 2.9 percent when compared with August 2015, and the pace of monthly price growth was steady, based on seasonally adjusted data"

Cleveland Metro Real estate market is moving steadily along, going up at a very sustainable rate.  This rate is an average of all homes, that means that some areas are better.  The areas I focus on in the Northern Ohio Real Estate market is the areas that are seeing 4%-6% growth.

"The Case-Shiller report follows repeat sales of single-family homes. It's one closely watched barometer for the housing market's well-being, but the indices don't reflect what's happening with every house, or neighborhood or city. In Northeast Ohio, for example, a handful of communities have regained the value they lost during the housing bust. But many city neighborhoods and suburbs still haven't fully recovered."

 I added this paragraph to show you that some of the areas in the Cleveland Market have come back to the value that was there in 2006.  That is the crucial part of buying any type of real estate, whether it be a home or an investment you need to know where the best place is to buy and why!

Folks having a Realtor that watches the news and the trends in every type of real estate market is a huge asset for you and your real estate portfolio. The markets in Arizona and Ohio are extremely good and so are the homes.

The Real Estate market is low on inventory and a lot of hedge funds are buying a ton of residential real estate all over the United States. The trends are that income real estate will be a huge asset for a lot of REITS.

We have all the services and tools you need to add any home in Northern Ohio and the Phoenix Arizona real estate markets to your portfolio.  We help you manage all the details for the life of your property.

How we look at Income Real Estate? 

      
 
      In the Northern Ohio and Phoenix Metro areas we stay in the cities that have a good probability of having the equity growth and quality tenants. We do have property management available if you need it. Our focus is getting you the best real estate available. 
 
      In Ohio the prices for income properties we recommend is around $100,000-$180,000.  The rents are between $1300-$2000 a month.  The nets on these properties after taxes, insurance, Property Managements are approximately $750-$1100 per month.  These properties are single family homes and our in very desirable areas. The vacancy rates are almost always in the single digits, and they cater to the professionals and people that have kids.  School systems are very important to families in Ohio and they really put a lot of weight on their decision based on the schools. Here is a home I looked at Friday that fits our income property mold. Click here to view  
      In Arizona the prices are higher, but the homes are located in the areas that families want to live in. The prices we usually purchase are between $165,000-$200,000 and they are newer homes. These homes rent between $1300-$1600 a month and again they are quality tenants.  The approximate net profit after Taxes, Insurance, Property Management is between $950-$1050 per month. These are also single family homes that attract a large pool of quality tenants and rent fairly quickly. Here is a example of a property in the Arizona we looked at recently.  Click here to view this home.

Quality tenants are so important to your success in this business.  Lower prices homes in questionable areas usually end up being a bad decision for you and your wallet.​ Also the areas that we purchase in will probably benefit in any equity growth that the markets allow.  Last year Phoenix Metro and Cleveland Metro raised between 3%-8% on their equity positions. 

The other unique aspect of these homes is that we will have an home inspection done in almost all cases. That would allow the allow the buyer to purchase a home warranty. 
 
We also have many services that you can tap into being a client of ours. We have Property Management, Contractors, Real Estate Attorneys, Insurance People, and many other services for your real estate needs. After over 1000+ properties we decided to become a boutique real estate company.

We work with fewer clients and help them with finding all types of Real Estate.  Please call me 216-703-5740 or 602-363-6551.  I look forward to assisting you.

The Real Estate Market: It’s Not Just in the Eye of the Beholder
 

This article comes from http://www.themreport.com/ by Brian Hones that talks about the rising home prices and the lack of them. Also the highest appreciation of rental increases.

"U.S. home values leapt up by 5.5 percent since last September, reflecting the fastest rise in appreciation for more than two years, according to Zillow."

Home prices continue to go up in price and with the loan restrictions and grade super A mortgages that are in this market, there probably will not be that many foreclosures in the near future.

" "Increasingly strong demand has been contributing to dwindling inventory stocks across the nation," Dr. Svenja Gudell, chief economist for Zillow, said in a statement. "Healthy demand for for-sale homes amidst low inventory has been driving the market.”"

With new home builds at about a 1/3 of what they should be inventory will still continue to be an issue. Especially in the nicer areas that families want to be in.  I was talking to a Millennial yesterday at my open house and he explained how high rents were.  He was starting to look at buying a home.  I explained to him with this market you had better buy something when you see it and like it.

With the inventory shortage some potential buyers will need to rent until they find the right home.  If they have kids they will want to rent in areas their kids will go to school at.

"“Buyers in the nation's fastest moving markets can expect the search process to last a few months, as market conditions are often extremely competitive with homes selling for above asking price and receiving multiple offers,” Gudell said. “It's definitely a seller's market right now, with some homes being more expensive than ever.""

Last 4th quarter of the year was a record in Northern Ohio and in Arizona the home purchases are always brisk.
