The current real time market profile shows there were approximately 10,041 new listings (down 1,013 listings from last month) on the market in May 2016 and 8,844 sold transactions. Since the beginning of the year the number of new listings has exceeded the number of sold transactions by +13.5% but the overall inventory of homes on the market is down -15.8% as compared to the number of home on the marker in May 2014. Demand is equivalent to demand experienced in May 2015 but with lower inventory of homes on the market home prices will start to appreciate at a faster rate.

Since June 2015 (12 months ago), the average sold price has increased approximately +3.9% (up from last month), the average days on market have decreased approximately -2.6% (down from last month) and the number of sold transactions have increased approximately +1.7% (up from last month). Since the month of September 2015 the average sold price has formed a new upward trend where each month the average sold price has gradually increased. Last year’s summer buying season was weak where we saw prices decrease from June to September. As long as buyer demand stays strong until September we should continue to see the Phoenix real estate market appreciate over the summer months.

The volume of foreclosure purchases since June 2015 (12 months ago) has decreased approximately -43.8% and the volume of short sales decreased of approximately -30.0%. Since November 2014 the volume of foreclosure purchases went up and now the trend is back down once again. Also, since August 2013 the volume of short sale purchases have decreased -365.3% because the inventory of homes “up-side-down” have been exhausted and values have risen to a point where consumers can break-even or sell with some equity but some homeowners are still up-side-down depending if they purchased their homes between 2005 and 2007.

Since June 2015 (12 months ago), the number of homes for sale on the market have increased approximately +10.5% or 22,475 homes for sale on the market to a gradual increase of 24,840 homes. The total number of listings is low as compared to 28,776 listings in May 2014. This decrease in the number of homes for sale indicates we are currently in a seller’s market (low supply and increased demand).

Real estate prices are still relatively low (near 2008 prices), mortgage rates are still at a historical low and the macroeconomic market is improving both in terms of prices and the overall economy. Give us a call to discuss your best buying or selling strategy, TODAY!!

10 WAYS TO QUICKLY UP YOUR HOME VALUE FOR A SUMMER SALE

Planning to sell your home this summer? You may have a little – or a lot – to do in order to get your home market ready. But you don’t need a huge budget. These 10 tips can help you get it looking great with little effort, and cash.

1. Paint

Crisp white walls are great in a 1920s Spanish. For most other homes, a splash of color is an easy way to warm up the space, make it look more updated, and banish fingerprints and stains. Use a soft neutral like one of these favorite gray shades for a modern look.

2. Address your front door

A fresh coat of paint on your front door is a quick fix that pops with potential. Use a bright color like red or yellow to differentiate your home from others and make it shine from the street.

If your door really can’t be salvaged by painting it, you’ll be happy to know that replacing it with a new steel door has been shown to return between 75% and 100%+ of your investment. “It’s also a relatively low-cost project,” said Houselogic. “According to the “2015 Remodeling Impact Report,” a new steel front entry door has a national median cost of $2,000 installed.”

3. Quick curb appeal

Aside from your door, a few easy tasks can make the front of your home look great – important when you’re looking to sell your home since poor curb appeal can keep potential buyers from even coming inside. A new layer of mulch has been called the easiest and quickest way to add curb appeal. Pulling noticeable weeds, giving the lawn a quick mow, and bringing in fresh flowers – if you can’t plant, put a few pots near the front door—can make all the difference.

4. New appliances

Even if the rest of your kitchen needs work, new stainless steel appliances can tempt buyers. This package from US Appliance is just $1,749.

Applicance

If you end up with a fancy new fridge you don’t want to leave behind, make sure to let your real estate agent know so it’s stipulated in the contract.

5. Quickie bathroom updates

A new or painted vanity, hardware, fixtures, and lighting can make a tired bathroom look fresh again. Don’t forget the little things – a fluffy set of towels, a nice rug, a modern shower curtain, and sleek accessories can make the space look good, even if it’s really in need of a gut job.

6. New bedding

You’d be surprised how new bedding can transform the look of your bedroom for next to nothing. There are two schools of thought here: get a cheap bed-in-a-bag set that looks nice but probably doesn’t have the thread count you want for everyday use, or spend a little more for something that has the looks and the luxe.

7. Create a guest room

Have a room that’s currently an undefined space? A blowup bed covered in some chic bedding can help buyers envision how they’ll use the room. This is a top tip from stagers, who say that “multipurpose” rooms can confuse buyers, leaving them unsure if a home will work for them.

8. Set the scene outdoors

Everybody is into indoor-outdoor living the days. A few tricks outside can make your place look inviting.

Create a seating area with some inexpensive outdoor furniture. Scour garage sales or catch a sale at Home Depot or Target. Put up an umbrella for shade and use inexpensive pavers or deck tiles to define the space. Stage it for outdoor dining and you’ve just created valuable, usable space buyers can see themselves enjoying.

9. Steal a few staging tips

Hire a professional stager and it can set you back a couple thousand dollars. But you can steal a few of their most important tricks for free. Cleaning like you’ve never cleaned before, decluttering, and paring down your furniture to create inviting seating areas will allow buyers to see the space instead of your stuff (or your mess).

10. Window coverings

If your window coverings are ugly, old, and not doing your house justice, or if they’re keeping too much light from streaming into the home, consider taking them down. Natural light is high on almost every buyer’s must-have list. You can purchase inexpensive drapes at any big box store that you can use to frame the windows – but remember to keep them open at showings, and to clean your windows first!

8 EASY AND CHEAP THINGS YOU CAN DO TO TRANSFORM YOUR BATHROOM

Cringing every time you walk into your bathroom? You don’t need to rip the whole thing out. “Reviving a tired washroom needn’t require a total overhaul,” said This Old House.

Indeed, small changes can help make it feel new again, and many of them are easy enough for you to do by yourself. Careful attention to the right materials can also keep these updates super affordable.

1. Paint

Choose a neutral color if you want a soothing backdrop for pops of color in your accessories, or a bolder shade that can create a glam space.

Or, “Create a striking monochromatic effect by painting walls to match your floors, as was done in this sunny space,” said This Old House.

2. Forget the walls; paint your vanity instead!

A painted vanity can take your bathroom from blah to beautiful in an instant. Adding some bold hardware and matching fixtures is the extra touch that your bathroom needs to really shine. Here, the golden hues play beautifully off of the turquoise and white, but chrome would work equally well.

3. Replace your vanity

If your vanity’s not worth salvaging, it might be time for a new one. The DIY Network calls a vanity replacement an “easy bathroom makeover” and provides step-by-step instructions. When it comes to what to replace the old one with, you can scour stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot for sales or check out places like Second and Surplus. This 24-inch, soft close vanity with undermount sink is only $299.

4. Address your floors

If your bathroom floors are grungy or grimy, a good scrubbing with a heavy-duty product is step one. But if your tile is old and ugly or you have vinyl that’s seen better days, it might just be time to replace it. Laying new flooring might not be a DIY job depending what you have (We tried to do our own tile once, and we won’t be repeating that mistake anytime soon.).

Our easy answer for ugly floors we’re not ready to replace: a good throw rug. It’s an easy and cheap, albeit temporary solution that can help distract you from a poor floor. Tip: get the biggest size you can find, which may mean buying a rug that’s not necessarily intended for the bathroom. Be sure to ask the sales associate if the material is water resistant or you could end up with a mold problem.

5. Create a spa shower

You don’t need thousands to create a shower that feels like you’re in a resort. The Dreamspa Temperature Sensitive LED Combination Shower Head is under $80, and gives you a three-way water diverter, 30 water flow patterns, and even changes colors depending on the water temperature.

Prefer a rainhead? “They’re softer and less grating, making each shower feel like a special occasion, not an obligation,” said Elle Decor. “It doesn’t have to be a big investment, either: This highly-rated rainfall-style showerhead costs less than $40.

6. Add shelving

Whether you lack storage or just want to add a focal point to your walls, open shelving may be your answer.

7. Cover up problem walls

Walls not looking so great? In many older homes, the texture can be uneven or problematic, and paint may not do the trick. Installing beadboard is an easy solution you can do on your own.

“Thriftier than most wall tile and less maintenance than wood, beadboard paneling made from cellular PVC stands up to sloshing and never needs to be painted,” said This Old House. If white is too traditional for you, that’s nothing a can of paint can’t fix.

8. Change out your lighting

You’d be surprised how big an impact a new light fixture can make in your bathroom. Not only will it bring a fresh, new focal point, but the light it gives off may also improve the entire look of the room. This easy DIY job can be done in a jif- the hardest part will probably picking out your new fixture!
