Market Reporting: Classic Case of Hindsight

New Bubble?
I am seeing some changes in the market in some areas...  Depending on your neighborhood, your price range and your personal situation- it may be time to take a snapshot of the market and the trends..
How would you know if your area is beginning a real estate market “shift”?  Data such as Absorption Rates, Days on Market, Months of Inventory… (and what does that mean?!?) Watching the measurements that define a “SHIFT”:
The most difficult thing about a Real Estate Market Shift, is that you cant be sure it happening until it's over.  We NEVER know for sure whether we are in a slight market adjustment or a major market retraction, a coincidental series of market events or a MAJOR SHIFT.  It's easy to dismiss any deviation in the "norm's" as a fluke, a one-off, a  weird deal...  
It happens slowly, and quietly, and then SUDDENLY! Until there's an undeniable amount of evidence, and it is clear that the data shows a different behavior in the market.  And by then, the shift is over... the evidence comes after the fact, AFTER you can do anything abut it.
Real Estate Data can only be seen in the rear view mirror. Or out the back window... Data happens AFTER the transactional instances that create that data. 
Absorption Rate, Days on the Market, Months of inventory; they are all measurements of events.  These actions happen one at a time… One home, one family, one triumph or one calamity at a time.
Just a few more homes on the market. More homes "expiring" or going all the way through the listing period (typically either 120, 180 or 365 Days) UNSOLD.  Longer Average Days on the market. and a higher trending Months of Inventory.  Absorption rates that show weakening demand. An increase in price reductions.  An increase of homes “back on the market” which means more failed escrows.
And to define those terms above; here’s a quick guide to the measurements that define a “SHIFT”:
ABSORPTION RATE A measurement frequently used to gauge the liquidity of a given market is the absorption rate. This is basically the rate in which a specific segment of a real estate market sells in a given time frame. As a generic term, Absorption Rate is sometimes used interchangeably with sales rate or turnover rate.
DAYS ON MARKET (DOM) are the number of days between a listing going on market and accepting an offer. The lower the average days on market figure, typically the stronger the buyer demand and the hotter the market. Note that this statistic is easily distorted by distressed home sales, which often have a very high DOM; by that minority percentage of listings that sell after multiple price reductions (one property that sells after being on the market for 12 months can sometimes play havoc with an overall average for a neighborhood); and by deals that fall through after offer acceptance (the listings come back on market and perhaps sell quickly, but the DOM clock keeping ticking throughout). Currently, appealing, well-priced new listings often accept offers within 7 to 14 days of coming on market no matter what the market is doing.
The biggest flaw is that DOM is only affected by the homes that actually CLOSE! So, the homes that sit for months and then go off the market unsold do not even show up in this metric. This is why DOM and MSI do not trend exactly. There is often a confusing disparity between DAYS ON MARKET VS. MONTHS OF INVENTORY.
MONTHS SUPPLY OF INVENTORY (MSI) reflects the number of months it would take to sell the existing inventory of homes for sale at current market sales rate or "TURNOVER" rate. Using the previous months number of sales, how many months would it take to sell all the homes available. The lower the MSI, the stronger the demand as compared to the supply and the hotter the market. Typically, below 3-4 months of inventory is considered a "Seller's market", 4-6 months a relatively balanced market, and above 6 months, a "Buyer's market."
There are often huge differences between neighborhoods, price ranges, school districts... Huge disparities that your would never imagine.
What’s the only way for you to be safe, and know immediately when these red flags rise?
I’ll show you-
If you are thinking of buying or selling in the next 0 to 12 months,  YOU NEED TO SEE THESE STATS.  I always know the most important statistics.  I track  them regularly and would love to visit with you, answer any questions and/or just catch up.
See what the trends say about you house. Go to www.smartersellers.com to find out the averages. If you'd like, it only takes me a few minutes to do an in-depth valuation!

Dave Ramsey’s Certified ELP Local Provider

Why does Dave Ramsey Recommend Forth Hoyt as a Certified ELP Local Provider?

In our modern world, it's become increasingly complicated to find trustworthy and competent investment advisors, realtors, insurance agents or tax services. There are too many lazy businesses and too many unfulfilled promises.

We decided that Dave Ramsey fans deserved better. We wanted his fans to be able to quickly find an accomplished professional they can trust—a pro who gives the same helpful advice our fans expect to hear from Dave. That’s why we created the Endorsed Local Providers (ELP) program—a network of endorsed professionals who are held accountable by members of Dave’s team and customer reviews.

Certified Local Provider
Certified Local Provider

What started as a service for one city has now grown to help hundreds of thousands of people across the nation. People love our simple process and the high-quality professionals we endorse.

Dave’s audience depends on us to provide reliable, trustworthy professionals who provide exceptional customer service. It’s a responsibility we take seriously every day.

Forth has earned Dave's endorsement, he didn't buy it

Being an ELP isn’t easy; it’s hard work because ELPs are held to a higher standard of excellence. While ELPs do pay a fee to cover website maintenance and employment costs, Dave’s endorsement is not bought—it’s earned. We have a 45-person team that interviews potential ELPs several times and provides support to make sure your ELP provides the advice Dave would give. We also make sure that every ELP is someone you feel comfortable talking to and is a person you can trust.

On top of that, we evaluate the performance of all ELPs every month to make sure we recommend you to the best agent possible. Also, every person who uses an ELP has a chance to grade them based on their personal experience through surveys we provide.

Forth Hoyt has great customer service and is easy to understand

We make sure each of our ELPs truly has the heart of a teacher, so you can trust your ELP to provide top-notch customer service. No one likes to be talked down or made to feel as if they don't matter. Our ELPs take pride in the fact that they treat each Dave fan like a friend.

The ELP program is designed to help you make money and save money

It's simple! If this program didn’t benefit you, we wouldn’t do it and that is why you should use a real estate agent that is an ELP. It’s a fact that people who use a good agent sell their home faster and for more money. In fact, a study by the National Association of Realtors shows that people who use an agent sell their homes for 16% more than people who don’t. Trying to sell your home yourself or using an inexperienced agent can cost you thousands more, not including time and frustration.
