The Absorption Rate is the ability of the real estate market to absorb or sell all of the houses for sale in a given amount of time. For example, if 100 homes are sold every month and there are 1200 homes for sale, it will take 12 months to sell all of the homes currently for sale. If there are 2400 homes for sale, the absorption rate will be 24 months or 2 years for all of the homes to sell. It is important to remember that this does not take into account the number of houses will be listed, and there are new listings daily!   The following figures are for the month of February 2013.   In the entire Shreveport/Bossier market there are 1951 Homes For Sale. Last month only 212 homes actually sold! That’s a 9  month supply of homes if no more homes come on the market. Last month 584 homes...

Real Estate in South Bossier City, Louisiana was very quiet in the last 30 days! What does this mean to you? Having a great REALTOR who understands the market is more important than ever! There are 29 houses for sale in South Bossier City as of today, March 19, 2012. These houses range in price from $30,000 - $291,000. There are 10 houses under contract (scheduled to transfer ownership) and these range in price from $50,000 - $257,500. One home sold (actually transferred ownership) in the last 30 days and that house sold in Golden Meadows for a price of $275,000! Coming tomorrow: How long have these 29 houses actually been on the market and what that might mean for you if you are considering the sale of your home today? Yours in Real Estate ~Sherry

If you would like a full copy of the report, please send me an email or call (318) 734-9001!   Market Trends Since 2006 The Villages at Tiburon has proven to be quite a success to its developers, and doesn’t look like it will be losing steam any time soon.

Since 2006, NEW CONSTRUCTION values have increased 13.77%, an average of 2.3% per year.   The first “EXISTING HOME” to sell in the Villages at Tiburon was in 2007; since then existing home values have increase 11.79% (an average of 2.9% per year).

  I must complain the cards are ill shuffled till I have a good hand. ~Jonathan Swift   I know little about the game of poker. My husband is a self-employed cattleman and farmer and I am a commissioned sales professional. I have always felt those two things alone were "gamble" enough for my life.   But several of my friends and colleagues love to challenge each other to a "friendly" game of poker after a long day of meetings when we gather together in one place from the far corners of the USA for various corporate events. Because of their competitive nature, I do think of them when I see this quote:   Cards are war, in disguise of a sport.   ~Charles Lamb   I was more than a little excited when this group informed me this past Thursday as we gathered in Dallas for a manager's meeting, t...

Market Trends Since 2006 Tiburon has proved to be quite the success to its developers, and doesn’t look like it will be losing steam any time soon. Since the first home sold in 2006, property values in Tiburon have appreciated from .25% to as much as 4.6% each year. Since 2006, NEW CONSTRUCTION values have increased 12.65%, an average of 2.08% per year. The first “EXISTING HOME” to sell in Tiburon was in 2009; since then existing home values have increase .75%. If that number seems that’s because it is. Unfortunately, in 2011 Tiburon saw its first foreclosed property sell at only $111.54 per square foot. When that property was removed from the data, we saw a more ideal appreciation of EXISTING HOMES at 4.78% over the last 3 years (an average of 1.59% per year). Figure 1 shows the apprec...

    The data for new home sales in November marks the fourth  straight month of rising sales volume, making it a 7-month high.  This is a great show of strength for the housing market.  According to the Census Bureau, the number of new homes sold rose 2 percent in November. On a seasonally-adjusted, annualized basis, home buyers bought 315,000 newly-built homes last month. Existing home sales also climbed in November.  But the big story in the report is the remaining new home supply nationwide. There are 158,000 homes "on the market" and with  home sales picking up, it is possible that the the complete, national inventory of "new homes" could be sold in just 6.0 months. This is the quickest home sales pace in nearly 6 years for the new construction market.   This is even more than in Ap...

I’m trying to Go Green and will begin posting our quarterly updates on here.  I will send reminders to look for them on the internet, but will eventually only notify you of the postings via the Tiburon Community Facebook page.  Part of this change comes from the request to separate the Tiburon Sales from the Villages Sales for the purpose of averaging the sales.  I will have more room to explain the averages on here!     Tiburon 3rd Quarter Sales Below are the properties that have sold in both Tiburon and The Villages Address Bedrooms Baths SQ FT  Sale Price  SP/SQ FT 404 DRURY 4 4 2891  $  399,900.00  $  138.33 400 DRURY 4 3.5 2661  $  376,000.00  $  141.30 500 BROMPTON 4 3.5 2469  $  306,400.00  $  124.10 700 ST.

Where has the time gone?  It is already October 1st and I just realized I never posted the Absorption Rates from August!  Here they are, so we can move on to September's!   The Absorption Rate is the ability of the real estate market to absorb or sell all of the houses for sale in a given amount of time. For example, if 100 homes are sold every month and there are 1200 homes for sale, it will take 12 months to sell all of the homes currently for sale. If there are 2400 homes for sale, the absorption rate will be 24 months or 2 years for all of the homes to sell. It is important to remember that this does not take into account the number of houses will be listed, and there are new listings daily!   August 2011 Absorption Rates for the Shreveport/Bossier City Area: Currently, there are 17...

 The Homebuyer is Missing the Contract Date by Three Days.....and Everyone is Still Happy! (Including the Real Estate Agents and Seller!) Missing a contract date is the kiss of death for a mortgage professional in my neck of the woods!   So.....how is it that my client, a military home buyer,  is missing the contract date by three days but all of the parties - the client, the seller and both real estate agents - are happy and content and more than willing to execute the three day extension? Because it will save this military home buyer a TON of money!  By keeping the original closing date of  Friday, September 30, the VA funding fee for my client, who is using his VA eligibility for the first time, would have been 2.150% or $4,300.00 on a $200,000.00 loan amount.  By waiting a mere thre...
