Single Family Detached Homes Leading The Housing Market Recovery

The housing market recovery in Tallahassee is gaining speed, though it is not evenly disbursed among all existing homeowners.

Single family detached homes appear to be recovering faster, though single family attached homes had a strong year in 2016.

When measuring the strength of the housing market, we like to do it by different segments as not everybody is facing the same real estate market conditions in Tallahassee.

High end home sales in the Northwest have a far different supply and demand dynamic than do $250,000 homes in the Northeast.

So while we have published numerous reports on the Tallahassee housing market by area and...

Where Will Buyers Get The Money To Buy A Home In 2017?

When it comes to buying a home, the greatest issue for the majority of buyers is from where to get the money.

Roughly 1 in 4 can pay cash, so that means the remaining 75% of homebuyers need another source of capital.

Many banks and mortgage companies exist solely for the purpose of making home loans, but not all "bank" loans are the same.

We can figure out where homebuyers in 2017 will get their money with a close examination of where buyers in the past were able to find theirs.

Where Buyers Get Their Money

Our first graph shows that in 2016, 97% of homebuyers obtained the money they needed to buy a home from either cash, conventional financing, FHA financing, or through a VA loan. When you throw in USDA loans and owner financing, 99% of all purchases have...

Meadowbrook Listings and Housing Report December 2016

It's been a great year for home sellers in Meadowbrook, as unit sales posted an 11 year high.

Located inside of Capital Circle on the eastern side of Mahan Drive, Meadowbrook has been a hidden "value buy" during the housing market recovery.

We have been recommending buyers looking for three and four bedroom homes shop in Meadowbrook, as these homes built from the 1980s through the 1990s are relatively large and sit on larger home sites, all "close in."

While the days of stealing one of these are finally over (see my "I told you so" previous reports when values were below $100 per square foot), there are still great opportunities to be found in this popular Northeast Tallahassee neighborhood.

Why The Perfect Home Sold Before You Even Knew It Was For Sale

Tallahassee is seeing homes sell within hours of hitting the market, so how does a buyer discover new listings as soon as they are available?

Nothing is more frustrating than seeing the perfect home with a "contract pending" sign on it before you even knew it was for sale.

Our top-rated real estate buyer agents hear stories all the time from buyers who failed to know about great listings until after they were under contract. Often times, they wish they had been alerted by their former real estate agent so they could have seen the home during the few hours it was available.

Years ago, when...

Anybody who tells you they know what will happen with mortgage interest rates due to Donald Trump being elected President is taking great liberties with their ability to predict the future.

Nevertheless (and taking great liberties), I think there are some signs that assure us that mortgage interest rates will continue to rise beyond what we have already seen.

What to expect from Trump regarding mortgage interest rates

Three Reasons A Trump Presidency Means Higher Mortgage Interest Rates

  1. The first one is easy. Mortgage interest rates need to move higher. We have been hovering near historical lows for several years and long-term...
