Is the Window Closing?   With interest rates lower than they’ve been in over 40 years, it may be difficult to think of a “window of opportunity” closing.  However, it isn’t difficult to understand that it may very probably cost more to live in a home in the near future due to rising interest rates and prices. Zillow recently reported results from a nationwide study that home values are expected to appreciate by 4.5% through the end of the year.  Coupled with Freddie Mac’s projection that rates are going up, the cost of housing for buyers by the end of the year will be higher than it is now. While uncertainty of the future can stagnate some people, the fear of loss can be much more devastating when a person realizes that the amount they pay to live and enjoy a home could have been consid...

Consumers are smarter and more resistant to old lead generation methods. As the real estate industry moves more and more to an online lead capture structure, agents need to be aware of the vastly different customer service that is required. The no. 1 area agents can work at in order to achieve the maximum ROI on their lead processes is: Know Jane Doe’s Tier: I Am Ready to Move: I will input my data into your lead capturing site and visit it regularly. I am okay with you reaching out to me and actually expect that quick response because I would really like to go see some houses this week. If you do not get ahold of me, I will use the first agent to reach out because they are providing me with what I need.

  Commercial versus Residential Real Estate: Commercial real estate is anything other than a single-family home. Generally, commercial real estate references office buildings, multiple-family units, retail properties and manufacturing facilities. Most people engage with the commercial real estate market because: they have a specific business that needs space, the want some extra rental income or they want to build equity. If your objective is to purchase for specific use: Buying versus leasing a space is a debate of give and take. If you buy, you build yourself equity and are able to do whatever you want with the space without restrictions from the property owner. With renting, you are protected a little more from the unseen risk factors of potentially buying in a bad location or the lo...

Celebrations ringing in 2014 spanned the globe, each with its own particular flavor, such as the edible banana confetti and peach snowballs bursting in the air in London. Dubai exceeded all-time records for fireworks, using Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, as a launching site for the 400,000-firework display which could be seen 62 miles away. In Japan, keeping with Buddhist beliefs, 108 bells rang out to wash away the 108 sins, while in China, a section of the Great Wall had fireworks and lights to resemble a dragon. Australia’s Sydney Opera House was used for the first time in a decade to put on a display using 7 tons of fireworks and viewed live by 1.5 million people. Then, of course there was Times Square. The year has officially begun with a big bang, much hoopla, and fanfar...

Inventory for Bozeman Montana housing has been decreasing lately but the Market Action Index is falling as well. With days-on-market climbing, these are relatively negative implications for Bozeman's real estate market. Bozeman's home market has been cooling off a bit in recent weeks, as more residential properties become available and demand declines. We're already seeing prices move lower as a result. Expect this housing trend to continue especially if the index falls to the Buyer's zone. Watch for a persistent up-turn in Market Action to signal Bozeman prices rising again.This part of the southwest Montana Real Estate market has been on a downward trend recently and this week, while essentially flat, doesn't break us out of that cycle. Median list price, homes for sale in Bozeman, Mo...

Even as more Bozeman properties come available, these are positive trends for the Bozeman homes market. The Bozeman homes market has shown some evidence of slowing recently.

Demand for Bozeman real estate measured by the Market Action Index is increasing and days-on-market is trending downward. If there were to be an increase in the number of Bozeman properties for sale, these would remain positive trends for the Bozeman real estate market. Bozeman home sales have been exceeding new inventory for several weeks. However because of excess inventory, prices have not yet stopped falling. Should the sales trend continue, expect prices to level off soon and potentially to resume their climb from there. Watch prices as the market transitions from a Buyer's market to a Seller's market.Week 2, May 2013 indicates a rise in median price, bucking the recent downward trend in Bozeman median home prices. The Market Action Index is a good leading indicator for whether thi...

In terms of supply and demand, the Bozeman real estate market is heating up and because more supply is coming on the market relative to the sales demand it appears to be cooling, but buyers are out! In recent weeks Bozeman home prices have been increasing. Since it is technically a Buyer's market, this price trend may be a result of improved quality (newer, larger homes) of the homes being listed. Look at the descriptive statistics where you may notice the homes being listed are larger and younger than they have been in the past.While this week Bozeman Montana median home prices didn't fluctuate much, prices continue to sit at all time highs. A persistent drop of the Market Action Index into the Buyer's zone will be a leading indicator of the Bozeman homes price strength subsiding.The ...

We are a community, joined together by schools, jobs, our love of the outdoors and the sharing of the services and amenities our great town has to offer.  However, we are separated in groups as we choose to live in subdivisions and neighborhoods.  I frequently find myself in a similar conversation with people new to the area.  From these conversations, I have found that the average buyer has several parameters they look at in choosing location.  Generally, the factors are price, convenience, and individual amenities of a particular home and neighborhood.   So, I thought it would be helpful to peer into some of our wonderful neighborhoods.  I chose to evaluate Valley West first because we recently moved and call this neighborhood home.  We were drawn to the neighborhood early in its deve...
