Real Estate Trend Analysis Highlights
Maintaining solid real estate trend analysis allows us to have a great understanding of where the housing market will head in the near future. Too often, we see the real estate lobby or the national media report on housing market changes from one month to another, with no regard to normal seasonal fluctuations that usually occur each and every year. We see reports of recovery that are skewed, mostly due to the ignorance (or the bias) of the reporting entity.
I like to use historic data and follow a real estate trend analysis that considers year over year changes as significant in the housing market. For example, I have found that closings that occur in September are almost always fewer than closings that occur in August, thus seeing a drop from August to September is expected. This is a seasonal market change that should surprise nobody.
The real important consideration is how many real estate closings occur in September 2010 versus September 2009. This removes all seasonal effects and allows us to get a much more valid opinion on the direction of the housing market. This long-term real estate trend analysis is the most accurate way to understand what is happening now and what is most likely to happen in the near future.
4 Great Real Estate Trend Analysis Graphs
The four graphs above provide an excellent glimpse into the current movements of the Tallahassee housing market. The first graph shows that overall activity is dropping in every key component, while the second real estate graph shows that roughly 60% of home sellers who listed a property for sale over the past year failed to sell their home.
In the second row of graphs, the purple (pending home sales) graph shows how new purchase agreements have slowed tremendously since the end of the Homebuyer Tax Credit, and the final graph (green) shows that closed home sales are now slowing too. All of these graphs are running trends (trailing 365 days) so none of the results are based upon seasonal influences and thus represent the true direction of the Tallahassee real estate market.
Joe Wrote The Book On How To Sell A Home Today
WARNING: The Internet & digital marketing systems have changed the way sellers need to market a home for sale. It's not about getting a home sold anymore, it's about getting a home sold and netting the most money from the sale.
To do this, a seller needs to hit the digital market hard in a coordinated effort that alerts ready-buyers (all at the same time) to ensure buyers understand they are competing for the right to buy the home.
While it only takes ONE buyer to sell a home, it takes MULTIPLE BUYERS for the seller to bid the property up to its highest value in today's market. You see our full explanation about how to sell a house here, or you can buy the book and really get into the nuts and bolts of selling a home in the digital age.
Get the book that explains it all, in a manner that is understanding to all, even technology neophytes. It's available on Amazon, a trusted source for consumers.
