Hire a Qualfied Buyer's Aent

Your Agent Matters!

74% of homebuyers work with the first agent they speak to, so they typically don't understand that it is in their best interest to first interview a qualified buyer's agent before they commence with the rest of the home search and home buying process. But they learn.

They learn when they ...

  • lose out on the perfect house
  • pay excess third-party fees during the transaction
  • over-spend for a home that they could have bought at a lower price
  • the home is not the best fit for what they need

So join the 26% of homebuyers who are smart enough to put themselves first. Here's how to do it.

The Value Of Homes On Acreage

The following graph measures the average value of existing homes on acreage, measured as price per square foot of heated and cooled space, from 2009 through the first week of February in 2021.

Graph shows the average value of homes on acreage each year

You would never want to use this graph to determine an estimated value of a specific home, because it uses price per square foot (of house) to determine value. Imagine a home on 100 acres being compared to a home on 1 acre, yet both homes were 3,000 square feet. This technique would have them worth the same!

But studying values this way with a good bit of data does deliver the movement of the market, which is what we are trying to ascertain. Much like we saw with average prices, average values did not plunge as far as did the rest of the market, though the recovery has been strong and swift. A new market has was reached as early as 2017, whereas most neighborhoods hit all-time highs recently.

The Size Of Homes On Acreage

The following graph measures the average sales size of existing homes on acreage from 2009 through the first week of February in 2021.

Graph shows the average size of homes on acreage each year

Though this graph is chaotic, it does show us important information. First, the range of home sizes (for homes on acreage) is fairly tight from 2,550 square feet to 2,850 square feet.

Secondly, the biggest homes (on average) sold near the very bottom of the market back in 2013. This is not a surprise, as prices were very accommodating back then.
