Smith Mountain Lake Real Estate | Smith Mountain Lake | Real Estate | For Sale: Eight Days A Week

So…now that I have the Beatles fans humming… (you can thank me later when you can’t get that song out of your head tonight 😉 )

I wanted to clear up a common mis-conception….

A lot of people think that Realtors only work on weekends..
consequently,   they all try to cram their visits in for touring property on Friday nights…

Now… I realize that that may be your only time off…
BUT! Just to be clear…
Deals are being made all week long

In FACT, more homes sell mid-week for better prices (when no one’s looking) than on weekends when driveways are full…

So…I would encourage you that if you have a little bit of time off
(or a sick day wink, wink!) try to get on my calendar soon!

In my last “Buyer’s Edge” release [ Two, Four, Six, Eight], I gave you a list of EXACTLY 100 properties LEFT —Under $500,000 that were all waterfront on Smith Mountain Lake…and I couldn’t have been more serious about how properties have been selling like hotcakes (whatever that means)

That list, as of this morning 4/3/17
(Including singlewides and doublewides—
BUT NOT including condos/townhomes)
is now down to
an UNPRECIDENTED
78 properties!

The FORMULA is STILL this:

  • Talk to your bank and get “PRE-QUALIFIED”
  • Narrow your favorites down to 10 great qualifiers…(or less)
  • Write an Offer WITH ME on Your Favorite
  • Come to Terms, Get Inspections and Close
  • Enjoy the Lake and Have Confidence that You Have a Rock-Solid Retirement Asset 😉

Attached is the list of Single Family Homes on the Water UP TO $499,999

THERE ARE ONLY 78 LEFT—[yes…another 22 have sold just since the last newsletter/blog post.]

  General “Housekeeping”:

  1. I have a family wedding to attend in June…I’m a real person with a real family and a real calendar…so please, if you ALREADY KNOW that you’re coming to Smith Mountain Lake this Spring, Summer or Fall…PLEASE get on my calendar in Advance.
  2. “Refer a Friend Bonus” Letter Coming Soon!!!

Have a Fabulous Week…BUT REMEMBER….

ONLY 78 LEFT )…THEN YOU WILL BE IN THE 
$500,000+  RANGE…SO HURRY!!!

email me now–as reports expire quickly…you will receive the list as soon as I receive your request….noreenhartkern@yahoo.com Subject: Eight Days a Week List

AS PREDICTED:
THE MARKET  HAS CORRECTED
AND THE BOTTOM IS OVER!!!

Still Not Convinced???

Lawrence Yun
, NAR chief economist, said a one-month setback in light of many months of gains does not change the fundamentally improving housing market conditions.  “Home contract activity has been above year-ago levels now for 12 consecutive months. The housing recovery momentum continues,” he said.

Yun notes home sales are staying well above the levels seen from 2008 through 2011.  “Housing market activity has clearly broken out at notably higher levels and is on track to see the best performance since 2007,” he said.  “All of the major housing market indicators are expected to trend gradually up, but a new federal budget must be passed before the end of the year for the economy to continue to move forward.”

The PHSI in the Northeast rose 0.9 percent to 78.9 in April and is 19.9 percent higher than April 2011.  In the Midwest the index slipped 0.3 percent to 93.0 but is 23.0 percent above a year ago.  Pending home sales in the South fell 6.8 percent to an index of 105.7 in April but are 13.3 percent higher than April 2011.  In the West the index dropped 12.0 percent in April to 94.9 but is 5.1 percent above a year ago.

The housing forecast has been upgraded, with existing-home sales expected to reach 4.66 million this year, compared with 4.26 million in 2011.  The outlook for 2013 is now 4.92 million, but could vary significantly depending on two scenarios.
If lending returns to normal, the 2013 outlook for existing-home sales would measurably improve to 5.3 million.  However, a fiscal cliff scenario of higher taxes and sharp spending cuts beginning in early 2013, which is an unlikely event but still worth noting, would lower the sales projection to 4.5 million.

Because of measurably lower inventory supplies, the forecast for home prices has been upwardly revised with the median existing-home price projected to rise 2 to 3 percent this year and 4 to 5 percent in 2013, with wide local market variations.  Miami and Phoenix will easily achieve double-digit price growth by year end.

Yun said the price gains will measurably reduce the number of underwater homeowners.  “For example, a 5 percent national price gain means the number of underwater homeowners would fall to about 9 million from current estimates of around 11 million.  A 10 percent gain, say over the next two years, would reduce the underwater status to about 7 million households out of 75 million owner-occupied homes,” he said.

About 25 million homes are owned free and clear without a mortgage.

Though the proportion of distressed properties is still high, the numbers have been falling over the past two years.  “The diminishing share of distressed properties is another reason for higher home prices in upcoming months,” Yun added.

The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

# # #

*The Pending Home Sales Index is a leading indicator for the housing sector, based on pending sales of existing homes. A sale is listed as pending when the contract has been signed but the transaction has not closed, though the sale usually is finalized within one or two months of signing.
The index is based on a large national sample, typically representing about 20 percent of transactions for existing-home sales.  In developing the model for the index, it was demonstrated that the level of monthly sales-contract activity parallels the level of closed existing-home sales in the following two months.
An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, which was the first year to be examined as well as the first of five consecutive record years for existing-home sales; it coincides with a level that is historically healthy.

NOTE:  Existing-home sales for May will be reported June 21 and the next Pending Home Sales Index will be on June 27; release times are 10:00 a.m. EDT.

If You’re Already On My List, then you Already Have “The Smith Mountain Lake Edge”…if not…what are you waiting for? IT’S FREE!?
