How’s The Market ?

Dear Friends, 
 
It’s summertime, and the livin’ may be easy, as the song goes, but for the housing market, it gets a little more complicated. Housing inventory in Fairfield County has decreased 16% since last year, yet the total number of units sold has decreased 4% over all and the average number of days on market has increased by 2%.  
 
With a decrease in inventory we would normally expect higher prices as well as an increase in sales volume, especially given our still historically very low home mortgage rates. Yet these market conditions indicate we are still definitely experiencing a buyer’s market. 
 
Opportunities are still plentiful for buyers ready to take advantage, particularly in price ranges above the average for each town.  Read more in my detailed market reports linked below and have a look at some of my recent listing updates.
 
Enjoy the rest of summer! 
 
Best,
Joni

How’s The Market? June, 2018

Dear Friends,

Well, summer is almost here and we’re playing a little catch-up as some lackluster weather put a literal damper on our sales volume this spring. Prices have softened a bit in our area in the last few weeks, but with a bump in current negotiations, even with some increases this month in housing inventory, we should start to see a bump in volume as well.

Have a look at some interesting information about new currency technologies, and my stellar new construction listing about to come on the market — “best in show” for Westport’s under $3 million category. Built by acclaimed developers, Schmiedeck Construction and located on a gorgeous Hunt Club cul de sac, it has been described as a scaled down, more affordable version of their “Ultimate Modern Farmhouse” located in Westport’s Old Hill estate area, which we recently sold for $6 million.

Best,
Joni

Our Housing Inventory Is Up

Trending: Blockchain/Cryptocurrency In Real Estate

Click to get my detailed market reports for Southern Fairfield County

Cutting edge currency technologies like bitcoin are already being used throughout the real estate industry here and abroad, according to Inman News. Properties listed around the world accept bitcoin as payment, although those transactions usually convert bitcoin to cash rather than exchanging bitcoin for property directly.

While developing countries with less entrenched financial systems or less regulation are able to implement blockchain technology for transactions more easily, 45% percent of respondents to Inman’s US survey said they see blockchain playing a bigger role in real estate transactions in the future.

How’s The Market? May 2018

 

Dear Friends, 
 
Later blooms on the trees and rising interest rates have attenuated the Spring market a bit this year, despite lower housing inventory across the country, and across Fairfield County. Many standoffs have been reported in price negotiations and post-inspection issues. Perhaps this is due in part to buyers’ widespread frustration with decreased purchasing power after recent rate hikes, and their consequent reduction in available cash for future home repairs and improvements. 
 
See below for the latest data, and a sneak peak at my fantastic new listing.
 
Best, Joni

How’s the Market? April 2018

Dear Friends, 
 
Year over year, the listing inventory has continued to decline in our area as in many parts of the US. Therefore, the climate is quite competitive, particularly for properties that are ‘move-in condition’.  However, Spring hasn’t even sprung, thanks to one of the longest winters ever, and sales volume and pricing is mixed. Check out the latest market data , JoniHomes highlights, and why the HR concept of “right-sizing” is all the rage for real estate.
 
Best,
Joni
It’s All About the Competition
Real Trends: ‘Right-sizing’ Is It! 
To some, a down-size truly means a move down in price as well as square footage. But in our area, it can be an actual upsize in price, even when a smaller space is sought. The motivation is usually all about lifestyle choice — living closer to the beach or downtown, buying a newer, or more “manageable” home or condo, or perhaps acquiring a second place in the city or resort area.
Often, downsizing can literally bring a significant upsize in square footage, even if a scale-down in neighborhood or convenience in order to cut expenses. This is more common among empty nesters, as school district becomes less relevant.
But now, more than ever before, choosing a living space is about quality, not quantity.  Home buyers have grown more particular than ever about how their living space is carved up. And by and large, they want it carved up differently.  Home office, exercise areas and TV watching spaces are among the high priorities. Optimized outdoor living, say around a pool, barbecue, spa or fire-pit are key, while ornate gardens and rolling acreage not so much. ‘W alk-score’ (walking proximity to area amenities) has continued to rise toward the top of buyers’ criteria spreadsheets.
Bottom line, buyers today are implementing a concept long known to human resources professionals (and let’s not forget Goldilocks) — they’re looking to “right-size” their way into their next home. Property owners and buyers entering the marketplace all need to be aware of this major trend when strategizing the next chapter.

Does money actually grow on trees ?

Did you know planting one single tree in your front yard increases a home’s value an average of $7,130, according to the US Forest Service ?

Did you know the larger the tree canopy in your neighborhood, the lower the crime rate ? Statistically, neighborhoods with more tree canopy are safer on average, according to the forest service — which translates into higher real estate values.

In addition, because trees shade your home, they reduce interior temperatures, thereby lowering cooling costs, particularly if on the Southern or Southwestern side of a home — a great natural form of home enhancement AND economy in the summer months. Then, in winter, when trees shed their leaves, they allow for more sunlight on the the home’s exterior, and protect the structure against high winds, which brings heating costs down as well.

If you would like to know the actual value a particular tree adds to your property, visit TreeBenefits.com, the National Tree Benefit Calculator, plug in the species and size of the tree and your ZIP code, and (with a little patience) prepare to be amazed. For example, the calculator shows that in the Midwest, a single elm tree 30 inches in diameter provides $345 in annual benefit to a homeowner.

Smarter House, Smarter Investment ?

Smart house equipment is all the rage, quickly ascending many homeowner wish-lists, but are these devices sound investments on resale ?

The use of smart home devices in US homes is expected to grow at a five-year compound annual growth rate of 42%, and this is mostly fueled by the introduction of smart speaker products like Alexa and Echo, according to Forrester research, a Massachusetts advisory firm.

Device categories, according to Forrester are safety/security, temperature control, smart lighting/electrical monitoring, care monitoring for pets and people, garden and lawn control, and speaker systems including VR assistants
, which integrate your gadgetry. Prices range from $35 for a smart appliance plug to tens of thousands of dollars for integrated technology and theater systems or say, wifi-controlled electronic shades.

But can homeowners expect to see a return on investment for these gizmos when they go to sell ? According to Consumer Reports, owners can increase the value of their home up to 5% by adding smart features. This is due mostly to the increase in buyers’ perceptions that they will be saving themselves headaches, time and most of all money — and will generally make their lives safer and more secure. As a result, home appraisers have already begun to take this into account when calculating the value of a property, according to Realtor.com.

So sounds like its better to be safe (and smart) than sorry.

Here’s a look at some Consumer Electronics Show (CES) highlights…

How’s the market? January 2018

Dear friends,

Hope you like my new JoniHomes newsletter, How’s The Market? Each edition will recap the latest market info and share my inside scoop.

Glad to report 2017 saw an increase in volume across our area — Westport’s was most dramatic at 17.5% ! although not every town saw an increase in prices. (Westport’s average sale price was unchanged at year-end.)

I am very proud to report that although the local list to sale prices averaged between 92-94% (varies town to town) in 2017, my own listings sold within 98.5% of their asking prices on average in 2017. That’s up 1.5% from 2016.

There are many indications for strong market conditions ahead in 2018. Below you will find more on this, as well as a link to the latest market data, and some of my own listing highlights.

Wishing you and all your loved ones a happy and a healthy New Year.

Joni

How did we do in 2017?

Click to get my detailed market reports for Southern Fairfield County

What’s ahead for 2018 ?

Will this year bring us a buyer’s or seller’s market?

The answer could be both, according to Inman News, the leading Realtor news website. Leading economists, according to Inman, say the increasing shortage of housing supply across the US, relative to increasing millennial demand, will likely intensify as more millennials decide to become homeowners.

This usually means a rise in prices and thus a seller’s market. However, many sellers (older than today’s buyers on average) have become “prisoners in their own homes,” fearful of rising mortgage rates and their next purchase to list their homes. T his coupled with changes to the tax code, experts say, will actually de-incentivize some new home purchases in 2018 to some extent, but will also provide buyers more room to negotiate in certain markets.

One thing is for sure — the 2018 market promises to be interesting.

Joni Usdan of Coldwell Banker Named to 2017 REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents

Westport, Conn, July 17, 2017 — Joni Usdan of Coldwell Banker, was named one of America’s most productive and successful sales associates as a part of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents, the newly issued ranking report produced by REAL Trends, sponsored by Zillow Group. Usdan is now a member of the “America’s Best Real Estate Agents,” and ranked number 22 for the state of Connecticut.

REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks over 12,600 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2016. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. “This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends.

To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2016. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume. The individuals ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 73 transaction sides and an average sales volume of almost $37 million. Teams ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 144 sides and an average sales volume of almost $61 million. This ensures that only the best of the best are included on the prestigious list.

“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transaction in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales,” said Murray. “To say that Joni is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”

“We are also pleased that two of the nation’s most prominent online real estate websites, Trulia® and Zillow®, have partnered with REAL Trends to bring a superior level of customer exposure of these sales agents’ performance,” Murray added.

“I am honored to be included among the country’s top residential real estate agents,” said Usdan, “and gratified to receive the recognition. The level success it takes to qualify makes this a truly special achievement.”

On the market: Historic barn reborn as centerpiece of stylish Fairfield home

FAIRFIELD — The distinctive clay-colored, custom-crafted, post-and-beam modern farmhouse at 600 Wellington Drive is a seamless blend of old and new with an interesting connection to early American history.

The 9,120-square-foot Fairfield house was built in 2009 but its centerpiece — the portion that houses the cavernous great room — is actually a reclaimed barn. For centuries, the chestnut barn serviced a Monroe farm. According to the real estate agent, the barn was days away from being bulldozed when it was rescued by a crew of volunteers. It was de-constructed, moved to its current site in Southport, north of the Post Road (Route 1), and re-assembled as part of the overall construction of this impressive house. (More)
