September is over and it's time for a new housing market update.As with all things 2020, this just does not seem like October (even though the weather is perfect).Buyers are as active as they were in May, and we still have a chance to finish 2020 with the most home sales in the past 13 years. I have created some graphs that I will share with you now, they accurately depict current real estate market conditions and make it possible to forecast what we will see coming next in the 2020 housing market.ℹ️ Here's the link I mentioned in the video where you can see listings BEFORE they hit the market: Coming Soon ListingsPlease remember to "like" the post and the video on YouTube too!

What is the difference between a real estate appraisal and the fair market value of a home?If there is one practice that confounds both home buyers and home sellers alike it's the fact that the majority of real estate transactions close at the mercy of an appraisal conducted for a purpose that most consumers do not consider.Understanding these differences will save you money when it comes to buying or selling a home, and it will help you appreciate the need and value of a real estate appraisal.But here’s the kicker … The appraisal might not necessarily tell you what the home is worth in today's real estate market.ℹ️ Here's the link I mentioned in the video where you can get a home's value: Home Valuation ToolPlease remember to "like" the post and the video on YouTube too!

As the 3rd quarter of 2020 winds down, it's a good time to dig down into the data to see what parts of the housing market are performing.One good way to do this is to slice up the market and then rank 2020 on how each slice compares with previous years, and that is what I've done.I rarely can get surprised by any new look at the housing market, because I'm constantly evaluating trends each day. But this new graph definitely showed me something that I was missing!2020Q3 - Surprising Trend In Housing I'm curious, did you know this was happening?Please remember to "like" the post and the video on YouTube too!

Hey, I’ve got some ugly and funny bad pictures to share with you today.I always tell home sellers, as a general rule, they’re not going to sell their home on the internet. Typically, we market a home on the internet, but it ends up getting sold with an onsite visit from a buyer.Online Traffic Drives Onsite TrafficThe amount of money a seller gets from the sale of a home will be heavily influenced by how well the home is marketed on the internet. That’s right. The internet will not sell a home, but the internet will be where buyers go to decide which homes they want to see.And it’s the homes that make their best impression online that garner the highest dollar when the sale has been consummated. Why? Because of competition and the fear of loss from prospective buyers who see others looki...

The real estate market continues to be strong, despite no end in sight for the COVID-19 pandemic.This made me wonder if the real estate market is "too good" right now. Can we sustain the current rate of home sales? Are we in the process of forming another bubble like we saw occur back in 2004 through 2006?Today's real estate market report covers all the bases, beginning with an examination of the big picture, the US housing market. It continues with a local analysis of Tallahassee, and finally reviews home sales at the zip code level in the Tallahassee real estate market.Let me know what you think. Can the real estate market sustain its hot pace?📺 Subscribe To The Joe Manausa Real Estate Channel and Get More Housing Market Reports, Listings and Real Estate Marketing Tips, and answers to...

So you find a home that just hit the market, and you want to make an offer. To whom do you turn to figure out the right amount to offer?Determining the right value is among the most important tasks required to successfully buy a home today.As a matter of fact, I was recently asked this question “Who is primarily responsible for determining the market value of the home you want to buy?” Questions about valuations are very common from buyers of all experience levels because nobody wants to overpay for a home.

Most real estate agents will tell you that a critical step in selling your home is the correct selection of your initial asking price. It determines who will see your home online and more importantly, it also determines who will NOT see your home.While I have discussed home pricing in numerous articles, today I will specifically address a pricing technique that I refer to as pricing on the nines. It is also referred to as "charm pricing" and it involves using pricing that ends in a "9" or "99."Some real estate agents do this without understanding its impact on the buyer pool for the home seller, so I have prepared a short video that shows you what to do (and just as important, what NOT TO DO).Home Sellers: Don't Do This!If you watch this short video, you’ll understand why this pricing s...

The real estate market continues to suffer from a decimated inventory that often forces multiple buyers into bidding wars over each new listing that enters the market.Hands down, bar none, this is the best time to sell a home that I’ve ever seen in my near 30 years experience as a real estate agent or broker. There simply are not enough homes for sale for our normal market demand. That’s right. Demand is not the highest I’ve ever seen, but supply is the lowest on record.The reduced supply of homes is due to the combination of under-building for the past few years coupled with a pandemic that has slowed discretionary sellers from entering the market. In this video, I show you the raw data graphed into an understandable picture of how the housing market stands, where it is going, and what...

Real estate cycles come and go, but some of the topics never change.I have a new YouTube Channel that I've been populating with videos several times per week, and today's video replaces one from my old YouTube Channel from nearly 10 years ago.What's interesting is that real estate market conditions could not be more OPPOSITE of what they were in 2011, yet the message in the video has not really changed (though it has been cleaned up a little).Here is the "After" video that I just recorded yesterday (please give it a thumbs up on YouTube! if you like it).New Margin For Negotiation VideoAnd here is the video that it is replacing:Old Margin For Negotiation VideoPlease visit our channel on YouTube for more answers to your real estate frequently asked questions.📺 Subscribe To The Joe Manausa...

The drums are being beaten loudly, announced the impending doom of the housing market. A wave of foreclosures? Tenant evictions by the millions? Home values dropping by 30%!There are a lot of scaremongers getting a lot of attention these days, proclaiming a return to 2008 housing market conditions. But I see a lot of rhetoric and not a thorough study of the facts.I have produced a fact-based video that I am serving up to my community in order to explain why "this ain't 2008."Take a moment to watch my housing market forecast, and you'll discover the real deal about the impending doom of the US housing market. Is The Housing Market Doomed For A Repeat Of 2008?  So what do you think?

What are closing costs when buying a home?If you are planning to buy a home now, or in the next few months, there are some fees and expenses you’ll need to pay in addition to your down payment that you should know about. Below, I share a story about how a buyer learned all about closing costs (the hard way!).Real Estate Closing Costs ExplainedOther than your down payment, all money you spend when you buy a home are called “closing costs,” and you should know about them ahead of time. Even experienced buyers can be surprised at all the costs that are associated with buying a home today.This short video will cover what you need to know so that you can (one, be prepared, and two, reduce the amount of money you need when it comes time to close on your new home).📺 Subscribe To The Joe Manaus...

This month's Pending Home Sales Report (a leading indicator for the housing market) has been completed and can be read in detail or viewed as a video.A home 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. Most housing market analyses identify home sales after they close, but a report of pending home sales provides real estate market information nearly two full months earlier than do closed sales reports.This pending home sales report is timely because a sizable market shift has occurred, and I will show you exactly what it means in today’s video.📺 Subscribe To The Joe Manausa Real Estate Channel and Get More Housing Market Reports, Listings and Real Estate Marketin...
