Days on Market Impact On Potential Buyers

When buying a home it’s important to know what commonly used real estate terms mean, and more importantly, what they mean for you as a buyer. One of the key factors home buyers look at aside from price and location is the number of days a property has been on the market.

Days on market start when the property is listed and end when an offer is received and the status is changed from ‘active’ to ‘pending’. The total days on market are calculated by taking the last 30 days to six months of sold listings, adding together the days on market (before each listing went pending) and dividing that total by the number of listings.

A low number of days on market could mean that the property was only just listed or re-listed, that there is a smaller inventory of properties for sale in that area, or that the property is located in a high demand area where buyers are motivated to move quickly. Over the last three years in Colorado, the median number of days on the market has remained consistently around 65. This is typical of other high demand areas as well; San Francisco and Chicago have also seen properties sitting on the market for roughly 65 days prior to sale, whereas lower demand areas like Ohio and Kansas had homes on the market anywhere from 60-360 days or more.

A high number of days on the market can correlate to a handful of things, but the usual reason a property will remain on the market for an extended period of time is over-pricing. Over-pricing is incredibly common in the real estate world where it’s understandably hard for a seller to put a material value on their home, something which to them, can be considered priceless.

If a property is priced correctly and still on the market after a long period of time you may want to ask yourself if something could be wrong with it. If this is the case, it’s important to find out as soon as possible before you lock yourself into a contract.

Finally, it’s also possible that there is an entirely innocent reason the property is still on the market. Maybe the owner just isn’t that motivated to sell, or there is a tenant living there currently which makes scheduling showings difficult. Whatever the reason, if the home you’re interested in has been on the market for longer than the average amount of time in your area, it’s important to do the full research to find out why- who knows, you may even be able to negotiate a lower price!

CLR’s Karlynn Spreder Helps Buyers Recognize the Right House

Visit: Colorado Realtor Karlynn Spreder Helps Buyers Recognize the Right House

——–

BOULDER, Colo.Jan. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — It’s not uncommon for a buyer to visit 10, 20 or even more homes before finding the property that’s right for them. “You only need to find one,” said Karlynn Spreder, founder of the Spreder Team at Colorado Landmark, Realtors. “But how do you know which is the one to make your home?”

To help buyers, Spreder, a Certified Residential Specialist, shares the following six signs that a home might in fact be “The One.”

No. 1: An instant feeling of possessiveness about the property. “When you walk into ‘The One,’ no matter how long you’ve been house hunting, you’ll get an involuntary surge of energy to do whatever it takes to make that home yours,” stressed Spreder. “If you’re at an open house and other buyers are viewing the place, you’ll start to feel competitive. If you’re at a private viewing, you’ll start to talk numbers and offer logistics.”

No. 2: Seeing flaws as adorable quirks. If one finds themselves viewing a home with traits that they would normally deem undesirable or as deal-killers, yet like the place so much that they instinctively compile a mental list of reasons those traits just don’t matter, they might have found “The One.”

“Smart buyers, however, should be aware of a syndrome called ‘Pottery Barn Psychosis,’ whereby the aesthetics of a wonderfully staged home with amazing curb appeal can hypnotize a buyer,” noted Spreder. “This syndrome renders buyers blind to the negative property features, which would be glaring or grave concerns if the place weren’t so desirable.”

No. 3: Immediately envisioning one’s family, furniture, remodeling choices, etc. into the home. “If you find yourself measuring the dining room with your footsteps to be sure your grandma’s table will fit or discussing whether the wall between the kitchen and dining room can be removed, it’s entirely possible that the home you’re viewing could be ‘The One,'” claimed Spreder.

No. 4: Loss of interest in seeing other homes. When buyers find “The One,” their interest in seeing other homes instantly dissipates.

No. 5: The bathroom and kitchen don’t disgust the buyer. Other people’s kitchens and bathrooms hold definite gross-out potential. “There’s just something about what goes on in those rooms that seems exceptionally intimate and even unsanitary,” stated Spreder. “So, if you happen to find yourself falling in love with a home’s river rock shower floor or drooling over the pot-filler, countertop or farmhouse sink, that’s a sign that you’re falling head over heels with a home that might just be ‘The One.'”

No. 6: The money, time and energy spent feels worth it. “If you view a home that makes all of the sacrifices suddenly feel like the best, most worthwhile decision ever, you most likely have found ‘The One,'” concluded Spreder.

January is National Radon Action Month

January is National Radon Action Month!

Radon is a naturally-occurring, colorless, odorless gas that can increase your risk of lung cancer. It is easy to test for and fairly easy to mitigate, should the levels be higher than the EPA recommendation.

One out of every two homes in Boulder County has high radon levels, so it’s important to test your home.
