Housing Market has PICKED UP!

Confidence in housing is at a new peak, with enthusiasm among sellers soaring, according to the April Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index® (HPSI). At 91.7, the Index plowed through its previous record, climbing 3.4 percentage points month-over-month and five points year-over-year.

“The latest HPSI reading edged up to a new survey high, showing that consumer attitudes remain resilient going into the spring/summer home-buying season,” says Doug Duncan, chief economist and senior vice president at Fannie Mae.

What is driving the lift? Americans are optimistic about their prospects for selling, with 45 percent believing now is ideal to list—a high point since the start of the survey. By the same token, almost half (49 percent) of Americans believe home prices will rise—conditions that, for sellers, translate to an upper hand.”

What to Expect…From a Home Inspection

Good morning everyone!

Today, I thought we’d discuss home inspections. First, because the New York Times just wrote a pretty awesome article that I wanted to share with all of you. Second, because I have a buyer’s inspection today in the beautiful Lake Saint Louis, MO and am hoping for stellar results! Before I share this link with you, I wanted to point out something that I read in it. I saw that the article says that most first time home buyers don’t know that they are responsible for the home inspection and to make sure to make it contingent upon these inspections. While this is TRUE, the standard contract DOES include an inspection contingency. Also, it is the responsibility of your agent to let you know all of these things that you are responsible. Another point I wanted to make is that there are two types of inspections in Missouri that most people are responsible for. The home inspection which is 95% of the time taken care of by the buyer and then the city/occupancy inspection which is taken care of by the seller to make sure everything is up to code and not dangerous! Most of St. Charles County does not require a city inspection (aside from LSL) but most of St. Louis County DOES! Hope this helps you get by a little easier during your home buying process. And remember, Sunshine Realty is ALWAYS here to assist if you need an agent!

Here is the NY Times link that shows you just what to expect during most inspections:

Real Estate & Law

Good morning and Happy Monday!

We are HUGE morning people, so we are ready to roll with the posts! We hope you are too ;). As some of you may know, real estate requires a LOT of law and legal jargon that us salespeople and brokers SHOULD be aware of! Trust me, after just passing the brokers courses and finals myself, there’s some stuff in there that I’m sure most people not in our field are unaware of. So to help everyone out a bit, I found this awesome informative Pinterest post on what sellers should consider legal wise. Hope this helps brighten your day and expand your knowledge in the wonderful world of real estate!

Have a Sunshine Day everyone!

We CAN show you ANY home!!

Good Morning Sunshine!

We hope you had a fantastic and wonderful Christmas/holiday time! We wanted to post this fun meme to help get our point across this morning :). We have come across a ton of acquaintances, friends, even family that did not know that an agent can show you any home listed. EVEN for sale by owner. We do not have to have the home listed in order to show you a home. We can show you homes listed by any company and/or individual. If you are thinking about starting the new year fulfilling your search for your dream home, we’re here to help!

Have an amazing day! Until next time ;)!

Thinking About FSBO? DON’T!

We offer much more guidance & closure for the same of less price! The fees that you will pay for fees, online services, advertising, legal fees, etc. would cost you more than what it would be to take advantage of us as PROFESSIONALS who can help you with the sale of your home.
