Housing Headlines: April 2017

from Local & National News


 

Despite rising prices, homes remain affordable in Central Ohio:

 "In Franklin County, higher wages actually helped improve home affordability over the past year, despite the area’s rising home prices, according to Attom. During the first quarter, the average Franklin County home required 21.1 percent of average wages to afford.

“Consumer confidence is increasing, as we are seeing a year-over-year wage increase,” said Matthew Watercutter, senior regional vice president and broker for HER Realtors." -- Jim Weiker, Dispatch Group


 

Here Are the Features That Top Home Shoppers' Wish Lists:

NAR

"The most-searched attributes at realtor.com®: Large backyards, garages, and updated kitchens

These three attributes were popular across all age groups. That said, younger home buyers with young children showed the most desire for finding a large yard and the greatest interest in living near a good school district.

The least-searched features among buyers: a guest house, mother-in-law suite, solar panels, and a “man cave.” -- Realtor.com

 

 

 


 

Home sales rose in central Ohio last month, but inventory stands at record low

clairmon2t

"Central Ohio’s spring home-sale season got underway in March with a warning: Good luck finding a home. Sales and prices continued to climb but the number of homes on the market fell to historically low levels.

We keep thinking the inventory couldn’t get any lower, but it continues to decline,” said Columbus Realtors President Mic Gordon.

Homes for sale stood 6.6 percent below last March, the 22nd month in a row that inventory has fallen below the same month a year earlier. Despite a lack of options, buyers — fueled by job and income growth — continued to grab the few homes available." -- Jim Weiker, Dispatch Group

Wonderful Benefits of Membership Laid Out by Craig Tuckerman and Partners in Latest Video

A Report By Chris Kirkham of The Wall Street Journal Had Us Asking...

Just how many housing units are there per person (or 1000 people) in Ohio. We can report anecdotal evidence of a shift in value that our neighbors place upon good, new development, but how much of this is driven by a real shortage of high-quality affordable homes? The article cites the top five and bottom five states for houses/1000 people. If you know Ohio's stat please let us know!

Explaining Mortgages to a 6-Year-Old

"Dad, Can I borrow A Hundred Dollars?"

Me: Why do ask?

Six-Year-Old: Jaiden wants to buy a house.

It was in this way that I became like the Federal Reserve last Sunday morning, making my daughter...Fannie Mae? Although no legal tender exchanged hands, a great educational opportunity presented itself. My attempt at keeping up the metaphor using up-to-date info and her questions and artwork within:

What are the latest developments around town in the mortgage market and the home-building industry?

What’s in? Mother-in-Law Suites.

What’s out? New Starter Homes.

A brief statement on the building industry: Good land and quality labor are in short supply. We're fortunate that we have fantastic sub-contractors hard at work on your home despite the abundance of condo and apartment projects popping up all over town. They are everywhere! We know, as we are now everywhere too. We have new projects in Bexley, Upper Arlington, Gahanna, Sunbury, Granville, and New Albany. We wrap up the mortgage market, household formation, and design trends within.
