There were 15 total single family sales for the month of January, 2013 ranging in price from $399,900 to $189,900. Last month, there were 35 total single family homes in Coconut Creek for December 2012. There were 16 less homes sold in Coconut Creek, Florida in the month of January, 2013 than in December, 2012.  Among the 15 sales for the month of January, 8 were distressed sales (bank foreclosures, corporate owned, or short sales). 48% of the sales were distressed ones.

The drop in overall single family homes sales is due to the fact that the beginning of the real estate market for the new year always starts off a little slower, as many potential buyers take a break from the home search during the holiday season.  Another reason that home sales are on the decline is due to the fact that the overall Coconut Creek and South Florida home inventory is very low causing buyers not to have a large quantity of available real estate properties to view.  Currently there are under 30 available single family homes to see in the entire City Of Coconut Creek, Florida.

Coconut Creek Real Estate Home Prices Rise in December

Housing market

Great news for South Florida sellers started in December, home prices are on the rise no longer giving the buyers the upper hand.  Prices in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties rose 0.8 percent from October and 9.9 percent from a year earlier, according to the Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller home price index released Tuesday.

Broward County’s median price for existing homes last month hit $230,000, the highest of 2012 and a 21 percent increase from a year earlier, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors said Tuesday. Broward’s median increased on an annual basis in every month during 2012.  There were 1,238 Broward homes changing hands, up 15 percent from December 2011. Cash deals rose to 35 percent, from 409 to 549.  It was the 11th consecutive month that prices in the three counties have increased on an annual basis.

After a long housing downturn, the market rebounded in 2012. Bidding wars broke out, pitting first-time buyers against seasoned investors. Homes sold quickly and the supply of properties dried up in many areas.  Local Realtor boards release median prices for homes sold in a month, but many analysts say a better measure of values is Case-Shiller, which tracks prices of the same home over time. The index does not include condominiums and trails Realtor board data by a month.

The real estate market in Coconut Creek and South Florida is starting to pick up.  Inventory is low, and demand is high in our city.  If you are thinking about buying a home, it is essential to have all of your ducks in a row in regards to your financing.  Make sure that you are fully qualified for a loan and have your lender or mortgage broker provide you with  a desktop underwriting approval.  This will be helpful when submitting your formal offer to show the seller that you are fully qualified to purchase.  As a result, you will have a better chance of getting the deal.

Coconut Creek and Broward County Real Estate Prices and Sales Rise In January

Coconut Creek Home Prices and Sales Increase In January Making Now The Time To Buy Real Estate

Coconut Creek Home Prices & Sales Increase In January Making Now The Time To Buy Real Estate

Coconut Creek and Broward County Florida real estate is coming closer to a bottom, which is good news for homeowners and potential buyers. The Sun-Sentinel recently reported that, “The county’s median price for existing homes in January was $175,000, up 6 percent from a year ago. Broward sales rose 15 percent from January 2011.”

Besides home prices increases, the amount of inventory has significantly dropped in the past year by 34% in January 2012.  With less homes for sale on the market, the overall Coconut Creek and South Florida real estate market should stabilize by the end of 2012.  The Greater Fourt Lauderdale Of Realtors released a report showing that there were less than 6,000 single family homes for sale in Broward County.  As a result, this was a significant drop in home inventory from a year ago.  Another positive to less inventory is that homes are selling faster than they did in the past.  Currently, single family homes sales are selling on average in 55 days.

If homes are priced right in today’s market, then they sell quickly and for top market dollar!  Many analysts still fear that banks will be listing their foreclosure inventory for sale soon causing more homes on the market.  But, with the significant decrease in inventory currently on the market, these bank foreclosure listings may help sell quickly with the large amount of demand for available properties.

More and more distressed sales are selling, which is helping stabilize the overall Coconut Creek, Florida real estate market.  Real estate inventory is very low in the City of Coconut Creek.  As a result, I am telling clients that are thinking about selling their homes to do so now, as homes are selling for more money as motivated buyers are in the market right now!  Interest rates are also at record low levels.  We have buyers that are getting mortgage interest rates at 3.5% to 4.0%.  It is time to make a move, as you can sell for more money now and then take advantage of amazing interest rates on your next purchase.

Coconut Creek real estate is at record low levels.  If you are currently renting, you should definitely speak with both a mortgage and real estate professional in order to know your options.  Many of our clients are paying less per month in house payments when owning their homes as opposed to renting.  Now is the time to get educated on how you can take advantage of these low interest rates that will not last very long and low housing prices.

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.
