Real estate inventory is very low in the City of Coconut Creek.  Buyers are back in the market after the holidays, as the last couple of months of 2011 are slow.  As a result, we should see an increase in buyer activity in the beginning of 2012.   There has been a steady pace of distressed sales over the past 6-8 months in Coconut Creek.  Many buyers are finding great deals on single family homes and townhomes, as more and more banks are negotiating short sales and bank owned property listings more quickly.

Buyers are finding excellent values, as Coconut Creek is a great place to live and raise a family. It is also a great alternative to neighboring cities like Parkland and Coral Springs. The city offers excellent schools, safe neighborhoods, and great parks and recreation for the entire family to enjoy.

Coconut Creek Real Estate Agent Michael Citron Quoted In Sun Sentinel

Coconut Creek Realtor Michael Citron Quoted In Sun Sentinel For Housing Strategies For 2012

michael-citron-parkland-coconut-creek-real-estate-agent
Coconut Creek and South Florida Realtor Michael Citron was quoted in yesterday’s Sun-Sentinel article entitled: South Florida housing strategies for 2012.  It appears that the housing market collapse is fading away bringing a stronger and more stable market in the coming months and years

Home sales in Coconut Creek and South Florida are on the rise, as the real estate bottom nears.  But, the shadow inventory of bank foreclosures soon to hit the market and less than stellar job market could prolong the recovery.  Sun-Sentinel reporter, Paul Owers, provides a guide to help both buyers and sellers, and homeowners “underwater” on their current mortgages in 2012:

Sellers:

DO: Consider selling early in 2012, before foreclosures hit the market
DON’T: Try to attract buyers with cars, cash or most other incentives

Underwater Borrowers

DO: Plan now if you’re considering a short sale
DON’T: Think you’re necessarily stuck with an underwater mortgage

I was quoted in the Sentinel article giving advice to potential buyers in 2012:

DO: Write a letter to the seller, explaining why you want the home

DON’T: Sound desperate or let the seller know how much of a mortgage you’re approved for

If you’re writing to a lender, be sure to explain that you’re preapproved for a mortgage and can close quickly, Broward County (and Coconut Creek) real estate agent Michael Citron said. If the seller is the existing homeowner, go into more personal detail.  “If the home has a pool, tell them that you hope your kids can learn to swim in that pool,” Citron said. “A regular seller wants to know the buyer will appreciate the house as much as they did.”

If you are thinking about selling or buying a home, it has never been a better time to make a move in real estate for 2012.  To read the complete Sun-Sentinel article, please click here It is a honor and privilege to be considered as a local real estate expert.  I look forward to working with the Coconut Creek and South Florida community for all of your real estate needs in 2012.

The First Question Coconut Creek Sellers Should Ask Their Listing Agent

The Most Important Question To Ask Your Coconut Creek Listing Agent

coconut-creek-fl-home-for-saleIf you are thinking about selling your Coconut Creek home in 2012, I am sure that you are thinking what is the most important questions to ask your potential real estate listing agent? How long has the agent been selling real estate?  How large is the company that are working with?  What is the marketing plan to get my home sold? Should you choose the agent who suggests the highest listing price?

There are many things to0 consider when hiring the right agent for the job of selling your Coconut Creek or South Florida home.  But, the most important question that all Coconut Creek real estate sellers should ask is a very simple one:

Do you truly believe that now is a good time to buy a home?

You may be asking why this is important when hiring someone to sell your home?  Isn’t that only a question that you ask when you are thinking of buying a home?  Purchasing a home in today’s market is a very important decision that most buyers are nervous about and want to make sure that they are making an informed decision.

As a result, I strongly believe that home sellers should hire a listing agent that truly believes that it is the best time in American real estate history to buy a Coconut Creek or South Florida home.  If your real estate agent does not believe that, how will the he/she be able to convince a potential buyer that NOW is the right time to purchase a home … your home?

A recent Gallup Poll shows that over 67% of Americans believe that now is a good time to buy a home.   The Gallup Organization went on to say:  “Overall, there is good reason for most Americans to think now is a good time to buy a house. Interest rates remain near historic lows. Home prices are down sharply, providing many incredible buys.”

Choosing the right listing agent is imperative in today’s real estate market.  Make sure that the real estate agent that you hire truly is convinced that buying a home is a very good idea!  As a result, he/she will work diligently in order to find the right buyer for your home.  Again, don’t forget to ask this number one question to potential listing agents.

There were 23 total single family sales for the month of November, 2011 ranging in price from $19,000 to $328,000. Last
month, there were 25 total single family home sales. There were 2 less homes sold in Coconut Creek in the month of November, 2011 than in October, 2011.

Among the 23 sales for the month of October,  10 were distressed sales (bank foreclosures, corporate owned, or short sales). 48% of the sales were distressed ones.  The overall real estate inventory of available homes in Coconut Creek, Florida is low.  During the last couple of months before the end of the year, potential sellers are holding back putting their homes for sale on the market until after the holidays and into 2012.  Also, banks and lending institutions are putting a hold on releasing foreclosure inventory until the New Year.  As a result, there are not many available homes for potential buyers to view at the moment in Coconut Creek, Florida.

But, in the beginning of 2012, there will be an increase in real estate inventory for both regular listings and short sales and foreclosures.  If you are thinking about purchasing a home in Coconut Creek or South Florida, now is the time.  Interest rates are at record lows and home prices have never been so affordable.  Coconut Creek is also a great place to live and raise a family.  It is also a great alternative to neighboring cities like Parkland and Coral Springs.  The city offers excellent schools, safe neighborhoods, and great parks and recreation for the entire family to enjoy.

Underwater Mortgages Overflowing In Coconut Creek and South Florida

Almost 50% Of South Florida Homeowners Are Upside Down On Their Mortgages

coconut-creek-florida-upside-down-mortgageOne of the biggest problems in the current real estate market is that many homeowners in Coconut Creek and South Florida are underwater on their mortgages.  The Sun-Sentinel reported that over 47% of all homeowners in the Tri-County area (Dade, Broward, & Palm Beach counties) are upside down on their mortgages.  Most underwater homeowners purchased their homes during the peak of the real estate market and then watched the bubble burst resulting in a significant drop in market values. These underwater homeowners are stuck in their properties and are more likely to fall behind on their mortgages and possibly become foreclosures.

As a result, the large quantity of underwater homeowners is preventing the Coconut Creek and South Florida overall real estate market from rebounding.  But, good news is on the horizon for these homeowners, as President Obama has announced plans to help more homeowners refinance underwater mortgages.  Hopefully, this new government plan will help current homeowners refinance their loans and be able to stay in their properties and not risk foreclosure.

In the City of Coconut Creek, Florida, over 50% of all home sales for the past year have been distressed sales (bank foreclosures and short sales).  If you are currently underwater on your home mortgage and uncertain about your options, please give me a call at: 954-609-0591, so I can help answer your questions and concerns and explain your options.
