Pricing of SOLD Single Family Homes for February 2015
Many sellers will wait until the spring thaw before cleaning the yard, planting flowers and making their house look more like a home. Yet with all the nasty weather this February we had 23 new listings of homes for sale in the Town of Newburgh. The seasonal statistics say we should be seeing a surge in the next few weeks.
Pricing of homes in the area continues to encourage buyers and disappoint sellers. The numbers having been moving sideways for a while now. Home buyers are not looking for homes that are large and expensive to maintain. Affordability is more important as buyers are more cautious with their decisions. Many clients are still getting FHA mortgages, while other are paying 20 to 30% down and some are paying cash. The value in many homes can be seen in location, taxes, schools and amenities available. While some prefer shiny and new, a good number of our buyers stick with resales for their affordability.
Since the weather has finally calmed down a bit and a major blizzard seems less likely than it did a month ago the influx of spring homes entering the market is imminent. Our phones have been ringing with many potential sellers looking for a comparative market analysis to better understand what their options are. Buyers are getting pre-approved with local lenders, searching online for homes, and scheduling appointments to see them. Many buyers that were waiting for the snow to melt are finding that many homes are no longer available. Builders are pursuing permits and some new construction homes will go up on spec as model homes. Spring is just around the corner and we are all excited for a great Spring. I for one am hoping for some warm sunshine after our long cold winter.
