Home-ownership Remains Essential Part of American Dream

February 21st, 2013 Written By Carol Pawley

According to a recent survey by LendingTree, 79% out of 1,060 homeowners believe home-ownership remains an essential part of the American Dream. Also 76% were confident they could sell their current home that if they wished to purchase a new home in the future, and that they could get a mortgage and afford a down-payment despite the recent recession. Of those surveyed 19% are postponing a home purchase or sale because of a weak housing market and a little more than half believe the housing market will take 12 months or less to recover. 

When it comes to home loan refinancing consumer confidence is even stronger. Of those surveyed 89% were confident they’ll be able to refinance their mortgage, with only 11% uncertain. One in three had already refinanced a current mortgage, 28% plan to do so and a remaining third are unsure of their plans.

In the fourth quarter the median price of condominiums in Miami increased 30.1%, with total sales activity reaching its highest fourth quarter levels since 2006. Miami’s condo sales activity rose 9% to 3,178.  According to a report by the New York-based appraisers Miller Samuel a total of 5,206 units transacted in the final three months of 2012.

Miami’s single-family market showed the most activity, with a 22.8% jump in sales to 2,028 in total. 

Within the luxury market, which represented the upper 10% of all sales, the median condo sales price was $1.18 million, up 32.6% from a year ago. On the single-family side, the median sales price was $1.4 million, a 30.1% increase.

The distressed market also showed a 3.4% increase in condo sales prices and a 12.8% increase in single-family home prices.

Franck Dossa, a broker at Condhotel in Miami, said that, with continued price increases and dwindling inventory, Miami could soon see prices surpassing the peak of 2006. “We’ll continue to see the prices going up for the next five years,” he said. “It will be more expensive than 2006 very soon.”

Selling Your Home? Leave Politics Out!

October 30th, 2012 Written By Carol Pawley

If you are selling your home it is a good idea to not place presidential signs in your yard. A potential buyer does not need to know your opinion and in the end can cause negative effects. When it comes to real estate leave politics out of it. One sign is enough and the one you want in your yard is a SOLD sign!
