Anne Arundel County Real Estate Market Statistics June 2017

Here are some market statistics for you for the year to date through the end of June in Anne Arundel County, compared to last year:

  • Average Discount Off Original Price: 3.3% (was 4.6%)
  • Average Days on the Market: 68 (down 17.07%)
  • Number of Homes for Sale: 2,579 (down 9.38%)
  • Total Sales: $1,760,540,478 (up 10.35%)

  • Real Buyers (Home Sold): 4,641 (up 5.02%)

(Source: Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, Inc. – MLS Resale Data Copyright 2017 – Information deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed.)

It’s a seller’s market.  Inventory is low, with just 2.4 months of property on the market.  And, as you may have heard, the Fed has been slowly raising interest rates, and we are facing a debt ceiling issue in a few weeks.  The uncertainty will motivate many savvy buyers to move more quickly than they might have otherwise.

All of which means, we are looking for more sellers, who would like to take advantage of the situation.  Now is the time to get started, in order to complete a move this year.  Who do you know who might be interested in making a move?  

If you know someone who is curious what their house would fetch in today’s market, and what else might be available, please introduce us.  I’m happy to help them find that out!

Final numbers for the year will come out in January, and I want to give you the early data now.   It’s a seller’s market.  Inventory is low, with just 3.3 months of property on the market.  And, as you may have heard, the Fed just raised interest rates yesterday.  Local mortgage brokers told me that this has already resulted in increasing mortgage rates and volatility.  The uncertainty will motivate many savvy buyers to move more quickly than they might have otherwise.

All of which means, we are looking for more sellers, who would like to take advantage of the situation.  Now is the time to get started, in order to complete a move next year.  Who do you know who might be interested in making a move?

Now, more than ever, it’s important for home sellers to pay attention the market activity, and employ smart strategy and top talent, in order to make the best sale.

Dealing with the wild and crazy market

The stock market sure has been wild over the last week.  Headlines about major market moves always make me think about where my money is invested, and what to do next.

I’ve talked to some excellent financial planners in the last few days, who are in touch with quite a few people.  I thought they might be busy helping worried clients, and they all said that they only heard from a few. That’s a good sign that they have advised their clients to expect and be ready for market ups and downs, to plan accordingly, and they are weathering the storm.

I’m curious… what’s your take on the market, and what to do about it?

Is it time to refinance any real estate, while the rates are still low?

Is it time to buy or sell something?  Do you want more of your wealth in a hard asset like real estate?  If so, what type?  Or do you want to sell something to be in a stronger financial position?

Do you have a good financial planner to advise you?  If so, would you be willing to introduce us, so that I can expand my network of resources?  If not, I would be happy to refer you to a good one.  It’s important to get the best advice that you possibly can.

And if you want to make any real estate moves, you know who to call, right?  In terms of the local real estate market, showings have been slow in the last few weeks with last-minute vacations and play, and getting the kids back in school.  I expect showings and new listings to pick up now, because for anyone who wants to move this year, it’s time to get going.

Have a great weekend!
