5 Reasons to Sell This Summer

20160627-5Reasons-STM

As the temperature rises, buyers are coming out ready to purchase their dream homes. The summer is a great time to list your home for sale. Here are five reasons why:

隨著溫度的升高,購屋者也都準備好進場購買他們的夢想家園,夏天是賣屋的最佳時機,我們來看看五個原因:

1. Demand Is Strong

The latest Buyer Traffic Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains very strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing and able to purchase… and are in the market right now!

Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.

1. 需求強烈

最新的全國房地產經紀人協會(NAR)買家流量報告顯示,買家的需求在全國都非常強烈,這些買家都已經準備好,願意並有能力購屋…. 而且時機就是現在!

賣家應該利用目前市場上買家活動力強勝的好時機。

2. There Is Less Competition Now

According to NAR’s latest Existing Home Sales Report, the supply of homes for sale is still under the 6-month supply that is needed for a normal housing market at 4.7-months.

This means, in most areas, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers in that market. This is good news for home prices. However, additional inventory is about to come to market.

There is a pent-up desire for many homeowners to move, as they were unable to sell over the last few years because of a negative equity situation. Homeowners are now seeing a return to positive equity as real estate values have increased over the last two years. Many of these homes will be coming to the market this summer.

Also, as builders regain confidence in the market, new construction of single-family homes is projected to continue to increase over the next two years, reaching historic levels by 2017.

The choices buyers have will continue to increase. Don’t wait until all this other inventory of homes comes to market before you sell.

2. 目前競爭性較少

據NAR最新的房屋銷售報告顯示,出售房屋的供應庫存目前是4.7個月,低於一個正常的房地產市場應該有的6個月供應庫存量。

這意味著,在大部分地區,並沒有足夠的出售屋以滿足市場上購屋者的數量,這是對房價來說的好消息,然而,近期將會有更多的出售屋更多進入市場。

許多屋主有想要搬家意願卻被壓抑著,因為過去幾年中的房產負資產情況而無法出售,現在屋主看到了房地產價值在過去兩年持續增加,因此會有更多房屋將在今年夏天上市出售。

此外,建商也重拾對市場的信心,眾多新社區住宅開工在未來的兩年中預計將繼續增加,2017年會達到歷史性的最高數據。

買家的選擇性將繼續增加,不要等到這些其他的競爭房屋上市才開始賣您的房屋。

3. The Process Will Be Quicker

Fannie Mae just announced that they anticipate an acceleration in home sales that will surpass 2007’s pace by late summer. As the market heats up, banks will be inundated with loan inquiries causing closing-time lines to lengthen. Selling now will make the process quicker & simpler.

3. 過程會更快

房利美剛剛宣布,他們預計房屋銷售的加速將在夏末超過2007年的步伐,隨著市場的不斷升溫,未來銀行貸款所需時間將更加延長,現在趕快買賣將使整個過程更快速簡單。

4. There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move Up

If you are moving up to a larger, more expensive home, consider doing it now. Prices are projected to appreciate by 5.3% over the next year, according to CoreLogic. If you are moving to a higher-priced home, it will wind up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait.

You can also lock-in your 30-year housing expense with an interest rate below 4% right now. Rates are projected to increase by nearly a full percentage point in the next 12 months.

4. 現在是換一個更大的房子的好時機

如果您想要搬到一個更大更貴的房子,現在正是時候,根據CoreLogi統計,房屋價格預計在未來一年升值5.3%,如果您想要等等再換一個更高價位的房子,那麼您的等待將會讓您在未來花上更多的成本(無論是頭期款或是每月房貸)。

目前您也可以鎖定利率低於4%的30年房屋貸款,房貸利率預估在未來一年會上漲整整一個百分比。

5. It’s Time to Move On with Your Life

Look at the reason you decided to sell in the first place and determine whether it is worth waiting. Is money more important than being with family? Is money more important than your health? Is money more important than having the freedom to go on with your life the way you think you should?

Only you know the answers to the questions above. You have the power to take control of the situation by putting your home on the market. Perhaps the time has come for you and your family to move on and start living the life you desire.

That is what is truly important.

5. 該是為自己好好生活的時候了

看看您決定賣屋的理由是什麼,並確定這理由是否是值得等待,金錢比和家人在一起更重要嗎?金錢比您的健康更重要嗎?金錢比您能夠自由的決定自己的生活方式更重要嗎?

只有您知道這些問題的答案,當您把房屋上市出售,就有了控制局勢的能力,或許現在您和家人開始過著您想要生活的時機已到。

這才是真正最重要的原因。
