Is the real estate market actually changing? The answer is yes. We’re definitely seeing evidence of a slow down – not everywhere, but in certain pockets of our markets. So, what are the top three things you need to know?
A rent-back agreement is a common name for a possession agreement. Just like it sounds, it’s an agreement where a seller retains possession of their home after closing – so, they are actually renting back from the buyer. Watch as Liz explains further.
WOWZA! Our peanut butter drive is a wrap and together we collected 4,801 jars for our local food banks! Congratulations to our Newport News office who won by collecting the most - 2,391 jars! Thank you to ALL who donated.
As Fall arrives, so does apple picking season in Virginia. Here are some of our favorite destinations that make for a great day trip.
The Red Cross is in need of blood donations. If you would like to help, there are two opportunities to give blood at a Liz Moore office this week - one in Richmond and one in Newport News. You must register for a time slot ahead of time.
The past 15 months has been a roller coaster in our real estate world. It’s hard to imagine that in spite of being in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, we also experienced the hottest real estate market in US history. The perfect storm of low listing inventory and historic low interest rates converged to cause buyer demand to spike to all-time highs.
Clearly, it’s a great time to be a seller. But… what about the other side of that equation? Sellers are asking themselves, “I may get peak pricing for my home right now, but then I’ll have to turn around and pay peak pricing on the other end. Does that make sense for me?” Every situation is different, and the answer really depends on a lot of different factors. One thing that definitely makes sense, though, is that now is a great time for an in-depth look at values with your favorite REALTOR. If you’re not currently living in your dream home, now just may be the perfect time to explore alternatives.
Other drivers that are causing people to re-think their current space are the possibilities created by new opportunities to work remotely. Many people have realized that they can hang up their commute, and work from home…and that home can be anywhere they want. That freedom extends beyond location – it also means new and different features are important in a home: home offices and outdoor spaces have become all the buzz in recent months.
We’ve devoted this month’s edition of Liz Local to exploring a few of those features.
