Buyers Aren’t Spooked by Haunted Houses

Posted by: MAAR MLS on Tuesday, October 17, 2017

With inventories so tight, many consumers say they’re even willing to live in a haunted house. Thirty-three percent of more than 1,000 consumers recently surveyed say they’re willing to live in a haunted house, and another 25 percent said they’d consider it, according to a newly released survey by realtor.com®. “Haunted houses are a popular attraction this time of year, but we wanted to see how many people would actually live in one,” says Sarah Staley, a housing expert who commented on the study’s findings. “What we found may be a sign of today’s tight housing market, or for many living in a haunted house doesn’t have to be a deal breaker.” Further, 47 percent of respondents said they’d live in a home where someone has died, and 27 percent additional respondents said they’d at least consider it, according to the survey. Still, 40 percent of consumers said they’d need a price reduction in order to choose a haunted home over a non-haunted home.

REALTORS® Raise $1.8M for Storm Victims

Posted by: MAAR/MLS on Tuesday, September 26, 2017

The real estate industry has been pouring in donations to go toward supporting storm victims affected by catastrophic flooding from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Over the past two weeks, individual and state and local association donations to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation have totaled $1.2 million. The National Association of REALTORS® also announced this week that it would give an additional $600,000 contribution to the RRF. Locally the Montgomery Area Association of REALTORS® donated $10,000.00 to the Texas Association of REALTORS® relief fund to help consumers and fellow REALTORS®. The RRF says 100 percent of all donations go directly to victims of natural disasters, and NAR covers the foundation’s administrative expenses. “The devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma is enormous, and our thoughts and support go out to all of those affected,” says NAR President William E. Brown. “The National Association of REALTORS® wants our members and the consumers they serve to know that the REALTOR® family is here for them. We encourage one and all to join NAR in donating to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation.” The RRF was established in 2001 in response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Since then, the foundation has raised more than $26 million for housing-related aid, which supports mortgage and rental assistance for disaster victims. Source: REALTOR® Magazine

How to Prevail in a Competitive Market

Posted by: MAAR MLS on Tuesday, May 16, 2017

How to Prevail in a Competitive Market Home shoppers are increasingly facing steep competition for the limited number of homes for sale. “Attempting to purchase a house in this type of market can make the already complex process of buying a home even more overwhelming,” the National Association of REALTORS® notes in a recent release. NAR offers up five suggestions for home buyers navigating today’s competitive market: 1. Stick to a budget. Have buyers get preapproved by one or more lenders to ensure eligibility. Be sure to also take into account extra costs of homeownership, such as taxes, utilities, and insurance. “When listings are scarce, bidding wars can drive up prices, so buyers must be prepared to walk away if the asking price surpasses their budget,” according to NAR. 2. Identify home wants versus needs.......

too good to be true

Posted by: MAAR MLS on Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Everyone has heard the old saying, “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” That old saying has never been more true than today. With a tough economy, money tight and everyone looking to save every dollar, real estate scams are increasing. The most common version we REALTORS® deal with is the rental property scam that begins on the internet.
