Homebuyers looking to move to Florida

Florida Beaches Tampa Bay

LendingTree just released a study showing where people are looking to move.  Can’t say that I am surprised by the findings.  Whats not to love about Florida?  We have some of the best beaches in the world, no snow, Florida is a business friendly state and there is no state income tax.  LendingTree found that “Florida was the No. 1 new destination for 18 of the 50 states. Of all purchase mortgage requests during the study’s time period, 9.14% were for consumers looking to move to Florida. The Sunshine State has a history of bringing in visitors and new residents, particularly retirees.”

The results reveal the most popular new destination for each state along with the percentage of out-of-state requests for that location.

States that love Florida. – % looking out-of-state– % of those looking at Fla.

  1. Vermont – 24.07% – 14.01%

Real Estate Market Update for November 2016

It is definitely a sellers market in Hillsborough County for November 2016.  The average sale price for single family homes increased 13% from this time last year to $279,000.  Inventory levels dropped even further to 2.9 months supply, this is one of the causes in the price increase.  There is a lot of speculation that 2017 will remain a sellers market and that the shift into a buyers market will not occur until 2018 or 2019.  If you would like a more detailed analysis for your home don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Real Estate Market Update Hillsborough County November 2016

FED is raising rates

Interest rates are expected to go up in 2017. The Fed is forecasting three rate hikes in 2017. What does this mean if you are a home buyer or home seller? Well, potentially its going to cause home prices to stagnate because buyers will not be able to afford the same thing as they could in 2016. With the run up in home prices over the last couple years a cooling off period could be just what this market needs to balance out some. The market is currently extremely unbalanced in favor of home sellers. Currently Hillsborough county is sitting at a 3.1 months supply. There is just not enough inventory out on the market right now which is what has caused the run up in prices. October 2016 showed a 13% year over year rise. Thats a massive increase, yet we still have not reached the same levels as when the housing crash occurred. So in a nutshell, if you are a home buyer or are planning on buying in 2017 you might want to act sooner rather than later. These historically low interest rates aren’t going to last much longer and we are likely not going to see rates at these levels again in the future.

Our team would love to assist you with buying or selling your next home. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
