The home selling process has changed considerably over the past year. Last year sellers could throw their homes on the market with little to no prep work done, throw a few pictures online and still expect multiple offers and a final sale price well over asking price. This red-hot sellers’ market was unprecedented in history and certainly not the norm.

Currently the market is in a state of readjustment and is trending back to a more normal balanced market. This adjustment may be perceived as scary by many sellers who are seeing their neighbors home prices fall in price and sit on the market for months. This slowdown can be directly correlated to raising interest rates and a huge increase of properties on the market.

The news for sellers in the

I personally would say “Hell No” to this rate. Up or down a fraction of a percentage please before I locked this one in!

The rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage averaged 6.66% this week, down from 6.70% one week ago, mortgage finance giant Freddie Mac reported on Thursday. Last year at this time, the typical rate was 2.99%.

The interest rate on the most popular home loan in America has fallen for the first time in seven weeks, ending a streak that pushed borrowing costs to their highest point since 2007.

Yet even with the decline, the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate is still more than double what it was last year.

Dear Real Estate,

Remember when we first got together? People didn't think we’d last. Maybe they didn't always say it, but they thought it. “You could do so much better. Why would you be a real estate agent?” “What’s your back-up plan?” “You should get a real job...” I’m sure they were well-intentioned. But I ignored them. There were times, though, when even I wondered if you were worth the chase. You do tend to play hard to get. Not even sure you know you’re that way. But maybe you do. Maybe you just wanted to see how much I really cared. I've come to love and appreciate that about you. If you were too easy, our relationship wouldn't be so rewarding...and my love and respect wouldn't be so deep. Who knows, maybe I’d have scrammed when times got

As we take time to celebrate Thanksgiving with our friends and family here are 30 fun facts about Thanksgiving -

Thanksgiving is a special holiday for many popular reasons—the food, the family, and the football are just a few.

I am very happy to announce the publication of my first non-fiction book: Suck-It! Cary Porter’s Guide to Real Estate Greatness.

With over 20 years’ experience in the real estate industry I’ve seen, been involved in, or helped agents through almost every type of deal and dilemma. We’ve had balanced markets, Buyers markets, Seller’s markets, the crash of 2007 and the craziness of today…. And through it all, when all else fails, it falls back to two little yet very impactful words: Suck It!

Inside you’ll find great real-life stories like this:

The Curmudgeon

An old man walked into our real estate office and approached one of our newer agents.

“What’s your name, sonny boy?”

“Hi, my name’s Jeff, and I’d love to—”

Sellers Are Returning to the Housing Market | MyKCM

 

In today’s housing market, it can be a big challenge for buyers to find homes to purchase, as the number of houses for sale is far below the current demand. Now, however, we’re seeing sellers slowly starting to come back into the market, a bright spark for potential buyers. Javier Vivas, Director of Economic Researchat realtor.com, explains:

“Seller confidence has been improving gradually after reaching its bottom in mid-April, and now it appears to have reached an important recovery milestone…After five long months, sellers are back in the housing market; while encouraging, the improvement to new listings is only the first step in the long road to solving low inventory issues keeping many buyers at bay."
