Maximize Your Listing Price While Minimizing Your Expense
Feb. 15 - Itís almost spring and in many parts of the country the housing market is already starting to thaw.
Some markets like Denver, Seattle, and Portland are red hot. According to the S & P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National Index,

Can You Trust Zillow's Home Price Zestimate? In A Word: No.
Feb. 15 - I got an email from Zillow last week. Seems my house has gone up in value another $2,000+ dollars in the past 30 days.
And it's going to rise another 3.5% in the next year, according to their Zestimateģ. Fab!
Except that it's just speculation. When it comes to Zillow's Zestimates, you have to take the numbers with a grain of salt. Make that a big shake
of salt, right over your shoulder. And maybe a stiff drink. And a frank conversation with your real estate agent.

along with 160,000 new homes being built per year up to 2024. When builders are feeling optimistic, itís a good omen.
Housing Outlook 2017: Eight Predictions From The Experts
Jan. 3 - In so many ways 2016 was an unprecedented, volatile and, for some, excruciating 12 months. And the housing market was not immune
to the yearís whims. At the start experts anticipated a pick up in building activity, instead builders are still not producing enough homes. Meanwhile, home
prices appreciated beyond expectations and mortgage rates toyed with record lows before crossing 4% for the first time in two years. "If the expectation was
that the market would transition smoothly from deep red hot recovery to normal--that certainly didnít happen," says Svenja Gudell, chief economist at real estate
data firm Zillow.
These 5 Trends Will Shape The Housing Market in 2017
Dec. 29 - If the U.S. economy is to hit escape velocity in 2017, you can expect the real estate sector to serve as its rocket fuel.
At its most broadly defined, housing can be counted on to compose 15% of GDP. It hasn't done that much heavy lifting lately, however. That's because in the
wake of the real estate bubble, lending standards have remained tight, while the cautious builders who survived the crisis have been reluctant to dive headfirst
into expanding their operations again.
