Answers For Homeowner's Four Biggest Questions
1. Is now a good time to sell?
In short, yes. Here are the biggest reasons why:
Inventory is still at record lows, and buyer demand is at record highs. While we are experiencing high mortgage rates, people are still moving. As more companies are requiring employees to go back to the office, we are seeing the demand for housing rise in communities across the country. Sellers have leverage in a highly competitive market. This can be strategic when it comes to negotiating terms.
2. What if I sell my home but cannot find a new one to buy?
Closing dates can be worked out in the terms and are often flexible. And there are many short-term housing options available should there be a gap.
3. Home prices are high right now. Should I wait to buy?
Increasing values don't always equate to decreased affordability. The actual cost of housing reflects a person's purchasing power, which is a function of mortgage rates and income. It's not just price.
4. If many foreclosures hit the market, will that decrease home values?
This is a common concern about the end of forbearance and homes potentially flooding the market. Here's why that's not likely to happen.
Nearly 30% of borrowers in forbearance are still current on their mortgage payments. Learning from the past, many banks will negotiate modification plans with borrowers, enabling households to maintain ownership. Most homeowners are equity rich, and many will be able to sell instead of going into foreclosure.

Ideas For Seasonal Fun
This is the perfect time of year to bring the outdoors in with fun family games, blooming flowers, and delicious treats!
Enjoying indoor games for youngsters and family members of all ages during this time of year can be great fun! Some favorite ideas include setting up a tent with blankets and snacks or building a fort out of blankets for an indoor campout. Another fun idea is to have an indoor dance party at night. Gather all your glow sticks, flashlights, and glow jewelry - then turn out the lights and turn up the music for a night of fun and laughter.
The perfect time of year for flowers has arrived! You can grow your own, pick up seedlings at your local nursery, or purchase a fresh bouquet at a florist! Enjoy beautiful tulips, daffodils, roses, snapdragons, and peonies. Flowers are growing in every shade and variety you could imagine — the perfect way to brighten up your rooms and bring the fragrance of spring into your home.
As citrus trees begin to wind down their harvesting season, cherries, peaches, plums, and various berries are all about to start producing! This is the perfect season to visit your local farmer's markets, community grocery stores, or orchards. Some communities even have pick-your-own orchards where you can enjoy the beautiful weather while gathering delicious treats.
Seller's Side: Insurance-Friendly Features Can Help Sell Your Home
In some cases, insurance risks can drive up the overall cost of a home. Features like pools or outdated or damaged roofs can increase premiums. Since many lenders roll home insurance premiums into monthly mortgage payments, that can be a stumbling block for some buyers.
Conversely, some home features can save buyers in the long run because they can result in lower home insurance premiums. Learning about such savings could be just what a hesitant buyer needs to hear. If your home has these features, be sure potential buyers understand the beneficial impact they can have on lowering insurance costs:
- Location isn't just important to your buyer; it's also important to insurance carriers. - How close is the home to a fire department?
- How far away is it from a risky floodplain?
You'll want to point out these to a buyer because they could lower the insurance cost. Security systems are a bonus in any home because they make the home safer. Items such as burglar alarms, deadbolt locks, and smoke alarms can lessen the likelihood that your home and family will suffer an adverse claim.
Another plus? These security items can earn discounts of up to 10% or more on home insurance. Green homes aren't just earth-friendly; they also can be insurance-friendly. Some insurance providers offer discounts for LEED-certified homes because they are considered safer and more sustainable than traditional homes.
Qualities such as sturdy aluminum or steel roofs and low-flow plumbing are considered during the quote process because they lower the risk of hail, wind, and water damage. It's not bad to point out that while your buyer is reducing their carbon footprint, they also could qualify for lower home insurance premiums.
We also have several Professional Newsletters Ready to Ship you can personalize for yourself or your team. Reaching your farm has never been easier. Your clients will enjoy timely market information and fresh springtime maintenance ideas!
