20 Markets with Strongest Kickoff to 2017
realtor.com | January 26, 2017

nashvillesky175x200The time it has taken for homes to sell nationwide in January has decreased at a rate of 4 percent compared to a year ago, despite record-high housing prices, according to realtor.com®’s latest housing report.

“We saw evidence of a stronger-than-normal off season starting last September and October due to pent-up demand and surging interest from first-time buyers,” says realtor.com® chief economist Jonathan Smoke. “The downside to this strong off season is that we have started 2017 with a new low volume of available homes for sale and a new high for prices.”

Listing inventories are down 11 percent in January compared to a year ago. Also, the median list price for the month is an estimated $250,000 — 10 percent higher than January 2015, realtor.com® notes. Nevertheless, “the threat of rates approaching multiyear highs in the months ahead is creating a sense of urgency [among buyers],” Smoke says.

The following are the top-performing markets this month:

  1. San Francisco
  2. San Jose
  3. Vallejo
  4. Dallas
  5. San Diego
  6. Sacramento
  7. Yuba City
  8. Denver
  9. Stockton
  10. Fresno
  11. Oxnard
  12. Columbus
  13. Colorado Springs
  14. Nashville
  15. Detroit
  16. Modesto
  17. Los Angeles
  18. Tampa
  19. Santa Rosa
  20. Fort Wayne

The Surprising Cities Gentrifying the Fastest

The Surprising Cities Gentrifying the Fastest
Article by Daily Real Estate News | January 23, 2017

nashvillemelroseneighborhoodIn the late 1980s, many residents were moving out of Charleston, S.C.,’s Eastside neighborhood due to a lack of job opportunities. The area became depressed. But things are changing there and throughout America, as many cities are undergoing rapid gentrification due to escalating home prices. But modern urban gentrification can get complicated, urban planners say.

“It’s a trade-off,” says David Fiorenza, an urban economics professor at Villanova University. “Whole communities can be displaced. But people [also] can benefit from it, because home values and business values go up … and eventually, there will be more jobs and better schools.”

Realtor.com®’s research team analyzed cities whose populations were 50,000 or more between 2000 and 2015 and examined the U.S. Census Tracts of neighborhoods of 1,200 to 8,000 residents. The team focused on lower-income areas where home values had the potential for gentrification and then compared home values and residents’ income and education levels from 2000 to 2015 to find out which cities are seeing the most significant turnaround.

Realtor.com® noted the following cities are seeing the most gentrification lately:

  1. Charleston, SC
  2. Asheville, NC
  3. Washington, DC
  4. Portland, OR
  5. Denver, CO
  6. Nashville, TN
  7. Sacramento, CA
  8. Jersey City, NJ

Nashville, Tennessee

California real estate professionals are staying busy. Cities in California continue to dominate lists of the most booming housing markets in the country. But they’re not alone. Many markets across the country are seeing elevated sales this fall.

“After an eventful election, demand for real estate appears to be carrying momentum going into the holiday season,” says Javier Vivas, manager of economic research for realtor.com®. “We expect that to be put to the test, as mortgage rates sky rocket to new highs. But forecasts expect growth as we enter the new year, which should keep waves of buyers intent on entering the market.”

Inventory of homes for sale is down 5 percent in November from October, but the combo of low supply and high demand is keeping prices high, realtor.com® notes. The median list price nationwide remained at $250,000 for the fourth consecutive month, a new record for November.

Realtor.com® flagged the following 20 markets as the hottest in the country in November, where homes are selling the fastest and demand is highest (based on page views):

  1. San Francisco CA
  2. Dallas TX
  3. Vallejo CA
  4. Denver CO
  5. San Jose CA
  6. San Diego CA
  7. Stockton CA
  8. Fort Wayne IN
  9. Columbus OH
  10. Detroit MI
  11. Sacramento CA
  12. Boston MA
  13. Santa Rosa CA
  14. Fresno CA

The Hot List: 20 Markets Soaring in September

The Hot List: 20 Markets Soaring in September
Article by Daily Real Estate News | September 30, 2016

realtordotcom-logoSeptember is shaping up to be the hottest fall in the last decade, according to realtor.com®’s latest housing report. Homes for sale in September are moving 4 percent more quickly than last year, despite prices zooming to record highs.

The median home price was $250,000 in September, about 9 percent higher than a year ago and marking a new high for September, realtor.com® reports.

“The fundamental trends we have been seeing all year remain solidly in place as we enter the slower time of the year,” says Jonathan Smoke, realtor.com’s chief economist. A shortage of homes for sale on the market mixed with high demand is triggering price increases across many markets, he says.

So, which housing markets in September stood out the most? Realtor.com®’s data team factored in the number of days homes are spending on the market and the number of views that listings received at its site.

They pinpoints these cities as the hottest real estate markets in the nation in September — those in which inventories are moving 23 to 43 days more quickly than the national average, and listings are garnering 1.4 to 3.7 more views.

  1. San Francisco
  2. Vallejo
  3. Denver
  4. Dallas
  5. San Diego
  6. Stockton
  7. Fort Wayne
  8. Sacramento
  9. San Jose
  10. Waco
  11. Modesto
  12. Columbus
  13. Yuba City
  14. Detroit
  15. Santa Rosa
  16. Colorado Springs
  17. Santa Cruz
  18. Kennewick
  19. Nashville
  20. Grand Rapids

Nashville among the 10 Best Cities for Home Owners
Article by Daily Real Estate News | September 02, 2016

HomeFrontFlagIt’s important that during a home search your clients consider what it would be like to live in a location and in housing where they can feel comfortable in the long-term.

Just buying a home should not be the ultimate endgame. “Successful ownership should be the goal,” says Lawrence Yun, chief economist with the National Association of REALTORS®.

To find the cities in the U.S. where owners had the best shot at successful long-term home ownership, Bankrate looked at a variety of factors including neighborhood characteristics, property taxes, utility costs, foreclosure rates, maintenance costs, affordability, energy costs, and more.

These are their picks for the 10 best cities for home owners:

  1. Portland
  2. Phoenix
  3. Atlanta
  4. Las Vegas
  5. Minneapolis-St. Paul
  6. Indianapolis
  7. Salt Lake City
  8. Denver
  9. Louisville
  10. Nashville
