Over the weekend yahoo!finance offered an interview that gave Powder Springs real estate optimists some of the most positive opinions they’ve heard in a while. The source was an onscreen interview with TV’s Barbara Corcoran, a permanent celebrity panelist on the perennial hit series. Yahoo’s headline story provided the simple encouraging prediction: “Housing Prices are Going to Go Through the Roof.”That view came from a well-respected source. Corcoran, herself a real estate entrepreneur as well as a Shark Tank regular, believes there “will be a major swing in the real estate market as soon as interest rates drop.” Her prediction that “All hell’s going to break loose and prices are going to go through the roof” was backed up with specifics. She expects buyers to come back out “and buy li...

It’s no secret that throughout most of the country, the continuing shortfall of homes for sale—the U.S. inventory—has continued to strengthen real estate values in 2023. With the total U.S. ‘active inventory’ (the combined total of existing plus new housing units) shrinking a further 6.4% from last July’s levels, it would be noteworthy if that hadn’t had the inevitable effect on Powder Springs real estate as well.New construction plays a sizable role in how housing performs. Whereas many owners of existing homes still hesitate to list their properties because a sale would mean losing their current home loan interest rates, first-time buyers of newly built houses have no such concerns. So any decline in the rate of new construction is more likely to be caused by factors like inflation an...

“If you’re thinking about buying or selling a house right now, you’re not alone.”That was the opening declaration in last Tuesday’s essay from the New York Times best-selling author and host of “The Rachel Cruze Show.” Her insights into personal finance and “fun, practical ways to take control of your money” reach millions of listeners who tune in weekly. Although she prefaced last week’s market prognostication with the welcome caveat that it’s never a good idea to let a market prediction control housing decisions, checking out the experts can be useful for providing an idea of what U.S. and Powder Springs “sellers and buyers might expect” in the coming months.Ms. Cruze directly addressed 18 questions: here are some that Powder Springs sellers and buyers should find interesting:· Is Now...

They are commonly called “presale” inspections, but a more precise name would substitute “pre-listing.” Ordering Powder Springs pre-listing inspections represent solid proactive measures that experienced Powder Springs house sellers often schedule early in the process. Even when they have no reason to suspect anything is seriously amiss with the property, they make it an early priority. Here are some of the reasons you might decide that such a preemptive inspection would be well worth the expense:1. Time. The best Powder Springs contractors are busy all year long, so if their services will be called for, it will be valuable to have work completed before the first showing.2. Control. To keep your sale on track after an offer has been accepted, if you already know what their inspector wil...

As soon as Powder Springs homeowners query the web for anything that has to do with home improvements, they quickly learn that the home improvement industry is quick to notice. They’ll do their promotional best to send along the ads they think are likely to get a click. Since “home improvements” is a broad field, lots of ads can be expected.That may have been responsible for an article from March of 2021 that recently popped into local screens, bearing the bold (and improbable) headline:“10 Home Improvements You Must Tackle This Summer.”Really! Who would be cheeky enough to propose that there are no fewer than 10 must-do home improvements that every Powder Springs homeowner MUST tackle in a single season? That proposition was silly enough to provoke many a click…but for those who took t...

Powder Springs homeowners have ample reason to expect to attract bids that reflect the recent run-up in U.S. real estate prices, but that alone shouldn’t lull them into complacency as they prepare their property for entry into the Powder Springs listings. That’s a real estate truism—even in a well-defined seller’s market. For area homeowners who see tens of thousands (or hundreds of thousands!) of dollars more in market value indicated by recent comparable sales, it’s tempting to then assume that little preparation will be needed to achieve similar results. Not true.The value of thorough preparation to show off any property continues to make a substantial difference at the signing table. Since the word “thorough” may be too vague to be of much value, here is an abbreviated listing of ac...

If you have ever tuned into “Today’s Homeowner,” you’ll be familiar with Danny Lipford, the friendly, drawling host of one of TV’s longest-running home improvement shows. Lipford is a contractor who demonstrates practical tips on how Powder Springs do-it-yourselfers might remodel outdated or rundown areas in their homes with little more than ambition, energy, and a few bucks. He makes it look fun and easy, which is undoubtedly why the program has been syndicated for a quarter of a century. The show has a website, too, which last week published a valuable safety tip: “20 Ways to Reduce the Effects of Indoor Air Pollution in Your Home.” It covered the topic from top to bottom: everything from what it is and what its health effects can be to what to do about them. It’s well worth reading—b...

At least at the beginning, Powder Springs real estate doesn’t automatically find its way into many retirement plans because hands-on investments aren’t among the simplest ways to invest. For youthful investors, building a sturdy retirement portfolio is a new endeavor—and it is much simpler to earmark a regular amount to be automatically invested at regular intervals. A mutual fund or other favored asset that can grow at a pace the market determines is easy to start and easy to monitor—it doesn’t require much attention.Yet it is worth reviewing why it’s so widely held that some real estate investments can play such a valuable role when they are made early on. Powder Springs residential real estate—for instance, a property that can become a rental house—may require a greater commitment th...

Late last week, NAR’s VP of Demographics and Behavioral Insights Jessica Lautz weighed in with her view of the importance (and lack thereof) of mortgage rate fluctuations. The title of last Thursday’s CNBC interview spells it out:“Mortgage Rates Matter Less Than You Think.”To the extent that her insights are valid, that would be good news, since borrowing rates have doubled from two years ago. Dr. Lautz is a psychologist by training, so her views center on how people perceive information (like changes in Powder Springs mortgage interest rates)—and how they tend to react to them. Her reasoning:· About a quarter of May transactions were all-cash sales—so only the remaining three-quarters of buyers are affected at all· Because of the past years’ runup in real estate equity, many homeowners...

The good feeling you might have gotten after reading the lead story in last Thursday’s yahoo!finance was a lot like hearing welcome news at the doctor’s. If he tells you you’re in good health at the end of your annual checkup, it feels great—even if you hadn’t suspected anything was wrong. So when the yahoo!finance headline announced that “the housing market recession is over,” it was momentarily uplifting—even if you hadn’t worried about any true Powder Springs housing “recession.”The article in question did make a reasonable case that for much of the U.S., a ‘buyer affordability shock’ stemming from ‘spiked mortgage rates’ had sent markets into a housing recession—but one that was pronounced only in some western housing markets “like Reno and Boise.” The direst areas had not only suff...

It does seem that around this time of year Powder Springs’s weather gets a proportionately larger share of attention from the news media. This would stand to reason when it breaks records or registers one extreme or another, but it seems as if Powder Springs’s weather doesn’t even have to misbehave to gain extra attention. Come this time of year (right around graduations, Juneteenth, and Father’s Day), weather always hogs more of the spotlight.The reasons could be because right now is when heat waves or tornados usually start to break out somewhere, and since that makes for interesting pictures, news providers grab it. Also, this is when media workers start to take vacations, so short-staffed editors can’t depend on being able to fill news columns or time slots with authentically newswo...
