Commentary:

Orange saw an increase in home sales in 2016 and the average sales price inched up ever so slightly.

Most of last years’ sales were price under $400,000.

Buyers like Orange because of the excellent rated Orange School District. They also like the great location as it is in close proximity to local highways and shopping.

Orange is a relatively small village, so sales are usually limited to 1-2 per month.

With some new housing options and the Pinecrest shopping center opening next year, it will be interesting to see if that has any affect on home sales in Orange.

Commentary:

Pepper Pike saw a slight increase in the number of sales and average sales price this past year. The luxury market was almost unchanged.

Overall, the last few years have been good for Pepper Pike real estate as low rates and a decent economy have given buyers confidence to make a move.

We are seeing a lot of sellers downsizing and young families moving into the area. Many plan to do major renovations.

Pepper Pike is attractive to home buyers because of the proximity to the highway, shopping, and distinctive homes that sit on picturesque lots.

Commentary:

As was the case with most of Eastern Cuyahoga County, Moreland Hills saw an increase in both real estate sales and average sales price in 2016 compared to the previous year. Moreland Hills always has a large portion of sales in the luxury home price point, where we saw a significant increase in sales this past year. However, days on market was significantly higher than in 2015.

When we see homes take that long to sell, it’s typically a result of sellers pricing their homes too high to start out.

Moreland Hills sellers received an average of 93.42% of their final asking price, which is the lowest percentage among Eastern Cuyahoga County suburbs.

Moreland Hills is one of the most affluent suburbs in Cleveland with many homes situated on over 2 acres of land.

The picturesque lots, accessibility to local highways and nearby shopping  make Moreland Hills a popular choice for people relocating to the area from out of state.

Commentary:

For the most part, Bainbridge held it’s own in 2016 compared to sales and average sales price in 2015. There were more luxury homes sold this past year which reflects well on demand for higher end housing in Bainbridge.

Bainbridge offers a nice housing stock, accessibility to the local highways, and a more country feel than you will get from suburbs in neighboring Cuyahoga County.

Commentary:

By looking at these Beachwood home statistics, it is evident that 2016 was a significantly better year than 2015. Both sales and average sales price increased. Low rates and a decent economy kept demand strong.

In addition, the number of Beachwood luxury homes was relatively unchanged but the average sales price and days on market both increased.

With a solid tax base, excellent rated schools, and an active Chamber of Commerce, Beachwood real estate is usually in demand. Beachwood offers its residents great location with easy access to I271, superb amenities, and access to some of the best shopping in all of Ohio. Beachwood continues to be a very desirable community in which to work and live.

COMMENTARY

2016 was a great year for the Solon real estate market.

Here are some things we can deduct from the statistics above:

1.     More homes sold in 2016 vs. 2015.

2.     Average sales price was slightly lower in 2015 than 2014.

3.     The number of sales was fairly balanced throughout the year.

4.     A well priced home will receive approximately 96% of asking price.

5.     The luxury home market had a significantly better year in 2016 in terms of sales.

WHY WAS 2016 BETTER THAN 2015?

In simplistic terms, the increase in sales in the $200,000-$399,000 price range was the major difference, especially the $200,00-299,000 range. In fact, 2014 saw only 51 sales in this price range, so the dramatic increase over the last two years is quite amazing.

Young families continue to flock to Solon to take advantage of the top rated Solon Schools and the more moderately priced homes are attractive from an affordability standpoint.

In terms of the families moving to Solon from other area suburbs, many are either buying their first home or moving up from their starter home. These buyer typically don’t want to spend more than $350,000 and the available inventories have been plentiful over the last few years.

The other significant price point was the $600,000-699,000 range, where we saw a modest increase in sales from the previous year.

Continued low rates, a decent economy and an increase in the stock market all factored into the increase in sales in 2016.

2017 MARKET OUTLOOK

First quarter sales will certainly be in line with last year as there are 36 homes currently under contract. There are fewer homes currently for sale now  ( 71 ) than at this time last year ( 84 ) so the buyers on the sidelines are likely waiting for the new crop of homes to hit the market over the next 30-60 days.

It’s hard to imagine the sub $300,000 market doing better in 2017, especially with a possibility of rates increasing. The determining factor may be available inventory over the next 3-4 months.

Homes will continue to sell for close to 96% of asking price. It certainly helps a seller is the home is properly priced and staged up front.

Buyers would be wise to get pre-approved well in advance so they can jump on the right home when it comes on the market. With limited inventory, especially early in the year, you can’t afford to hesitate.

COMMENTARY:

As the market has slowed down a little bit from the summer, October sales were fairly decent in terms of the number of sales. However, most were in the mid to lower price points, so the average sales price last month is significantly lower than the year-to-date average sales price of $321,437.

After the market slowed down in July and August, it did pick up after Labor Day.

The luxury market has been strong this year but has slowed down over the last few months. Only 2 of the sales in October were over the $500,000 price point, and we have seen only 6 luxury homes go under contract since Labor Day.

We anticipate decent activity over the next few weeks, and then a seasonal slowdown from Thanksgiving to New Years.

COMMENTARY

To begin, here is what we wrote after the end of June during our half year market update:

While 2015 was a very good year, 2016 is shaping up to be even better.

Below is a list of 5 things to take away from the end of the second quarter:

1.     More homes sales in 2016 vs. 2015.

2.     Average sales price is up slightly in 2016.

3.     The $200,000-299,999 price point is the “hot” market in 2016.

4.     A well priced home will receive approximately 96% of asking price.

5.     The luxury market is more active in 2016, especially in the $600,000-699,000 price range.

 

Upon review of third quarter figures, most of the things above still hold true. However, overall sales were down significantly in the third quarter of this year.

While there was still the usual rush for buyers to close before the start of school, the early start to the school year caused third quarter sales to occur earlier in the cycle. Take a look at these sales figures:

SALES 2016       2015

June – 52           35

July –  36           48

Aug –  41           39

Sept – 16           34

The number of sales during the peak buying season was similar, but the distribution or timing happened early in this years’ cycle.

Buyers seemed more aware and prepared to take action sooner rather than later. Typically, buyers snatch up houses at the last minute, well into July and even August, but not this summer. After July 1 this year, the market came to a halt, which is evidenced by the dismal September sales figures above.

 

MOVING FORWARD

The 2016 real estate market has been fantastic this year up to this point but we have seen things slow down during the end of the third quarter.

The good news is that things picked up significantly after Labor Day with buyers looking to complete transactions before the weather gets bad. We expect November and December to be solid months for closings as a result of the increased activity in September and now into October.

Sellers who lost out on the summer market will need to position themselves competitively or their homes will sit on the market during the slow winter months.

Properly priced homes are consistently selling for, on average, approximately 96% of list price and we don’t see that changing.

The only wild card is the upcoming Presidential election. Will it affect rates, at least in the short term? Will it dramatically affect stocks, which in turn influences buying confidence?

No one knows, but to be safe, it may be wise to get under contract before Nov. 8th.

How’s Your Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is a popular buzz word in real estate. Your home will be judged within seconds based on how it looks from the outside, regardless of how many interior upgrades you have done.

Knowing this, we highly recommend to our clients that they evaluate their landscaping on a yearly basis to ensure it is always looking its best.

BUT MY YARD LOOKS GREAT

Let’s be honest, no one is going to tell you that your landscaping looks awful. The homeowner is often the last person to realize their yard needs work.

Next time you approach your home, stop at the street and take an honest look to see how it appears. Also, compare it to the rest of the neighborhood. Is it beautiful and well maintained, or is it overgrown in places, needing a little work.

YOU WON’T SELL WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE

While having professionally maintained landscaping is great, all the time, money and effort you put into your yard is wasted if you can’t see your home due to overgrown trees and bushes.

While it may not be a big deal to you at this time, it will affect resale. Additionally, there are benefits you can enjoy immediately by trimming and removing overgrown trees and landscaping.

I personally had a tree get so big in my front yard that we couldn’t see half of my house. The fact that it was a great tree and looked so pretty in the fall kept me from seeing the reality that it needed to go.

We hired a well respected landscaper who made some recommendations including removing that tree. I fought him on it but now that it’s gone, I realize we should have done it much sooner.

Not only can we see our house again but we get a ton more sunlight in the rooms that were previously darkened by the shade of that tree.

NOW WHAT?

If you have the means, I highly recommend hiring a professional landscaper to assess your property. I realize it’s not a cheap endeavor but it’s a worthwhile investment, especially on higher end homes.

If cost is a concern, the internet has a ton of sites full of great do it yourself ideas. Fall is a great time to get good deals on trees, bushes and perennials, so now is the time to take action.

How the outside of your home looks is a reflection of you. So take some time to make sure it looks great.
