Welcome to the latest edition of the OMNI Real Estate Report! 

We expect 2015 to be a huge year for buyers. A lot of people who had short sales and  foreclosures as a result of the crash will re-enter the market this year. Additionally, we think this is the year millennials will enter the market in big numbers. If you're trying to buy a home in the next 12 months, you need to be prepared to compete in a very different market.

To help you, we thought we would share some advice from a completely unbiased source, the Motley Fool. Here are their 8 critical steps to make your home purchase a success:
  1. Work with a real estate expert: When buying, choose a full-time agent who is knowledgeable about the market and is a skilled negotiator so your interests are protected.
  2. Get pre-approved and work with a solid lender: A seasoned professional knows where to send you so that you'll be properly taken care of. Working with a lender who has seen it all will ensure that your loan will close on time, and with little hassle.
  3. Limit your expenditures: Your lender will continually check your credit history until closing. If you make a big purchase, it can throw the whole process out of whack. Plan a budget and stick to it.
  4. Communicate with your real estate professional: Ask a lot of questions and stay in close touch with everyone involved in the transaction if you want to avoid surprises.
  5. Be open and honest: If you have credit issues or job troubles, make sure to disclose that to your real estate agent and lender so we can take care of problems in the beginning. 
  6. Let your agent negotiate: If you select the right agent, they will negotiate the best possible deal on your behalf. If you want to accomplish your buying goals, work with someone who has negotiated thousands of times and has the experience to close the deal in your favor. 
  7. Time matters: If you have a request from your lender, title, or real estate agent for a piece of paperwork, deliver it as fast as you can. Delays can sometimes lead to missing deadlines, which can lead to missing out on the home you want.
  8. The work is worth it: Remember, at the end of the day, all the work is worth it. Once you have the keys to your new home in your hand, you won't have second thoughts.
If you have any specific questions about what you can do to make the home buying process a success, don't hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an email. We would love to help you accomplish your real estate goals!

What Can You Expect from Real Estate in 2015?

Welcome to the latest edition of the Omni Real Estate Report! As a new year begins, we thought it would be an appropriate time to share 5 trends that will influence the housing market in 2015.
  1. Interest rates remain low: Even though prices are a little higher, the low rates we've seen mean payments are as low as they were in 2003. We're not expecting rates to rise too much throughout 2015, so affordability will remain high.
  2. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loan changes: Fannie and Freddie have just announced their intention to relax some of their lending guidelines, which should allow for some more liquidity in the market. Additionally, they have announced a new 3% down product for conventional loans, making home ownership more affordable than ever!
  3. Accessible jumbo loans: These are easy to get right now and rates are low. You can get a jumbo loan for as little as 10% down, which makes borrowing a lot of money quite cheap. 
  4. Millennials entering the market: There is evidence that this is the year millennials finally enter the market. Since many are no longer at entry level jobs and are looking to start a family, we're expecting to see more first-time home buyers.
  5. Distressed property sellers out of the "penalty box": 2015 is the first year that homeowners who had a short sale or foreclosure are able to enter the buyer's market again. This should have a significant impact on the demand for homes, which is great news for the market. 
As you can see, 2015 is going to be a very exciting year! Things are really looking up for real estate, and we're excited to be a part of it.

If you have any questions about market conditions in our area, don't hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an email. We'll help you prepare for the new year, so you can get ahead of the competition!
