A Tale of Two Times:

Below is an example of how drastically the Housing Market🏘️ has changed in just 6 months. For example; where I live, prices💲 have increased📈 dramatically, while the average Days on the Market (DOM - defined as the number of days the property has been marketed from Listing to Contract acceptance) has dropped📉 by more than half. (Source: BRIGHT MLS)

Current Sterling Statistics...
Average Price (Includes All Home types): $476,448
Days on Market (DOM): 12
List Price vs. Final Sales Price: 100.5%

6 Months Ago...
Average Price (Includes All Home types): $437,565
Days on Market (DOM): 30
List Price vs. Final Sales Price: 98.1%

It's EXTREMELY important you understand your market, those things that shape your market and the best strategy for Buying or Selling your home🏡 in a particular market. Market conditions📊 change, and a lack of understanding can cost you THOUSANDS💸😢‼️

5 Housing Market Trends as of April 2020

Here's a pretty interesting article from the National Association of Realtors regarding the effects of Coronavirus on the Housing Market.

There doesn't seem to be anything unexpected here, but if you see something that catches your eye, let me know!

nar.realtor NAR’s April 2020 Realtors® Confidence Index (RCI) Survey shows the effect of coronavirus social distancing measures on the housing market. Here are five trends based on the data.

I got this from a Realtor friend and just had to share...notice the difference between what the Realtor KNOWS the value of her house to be compared to what Zillow SAYS it's worth!

I tell people all the time that while there's value in everything, the best way of determining the true value of your home is through a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) provided by a Realtor, NOT from Zillow.

If you're interested in a free, no-cost, no obligation Market Analysis of your property, call or text me at (571) 242-3668 or email me at [email protected].

Congratulations🎈🎉✨ to my friends and clients, Cody and Katrina on the acceptance of their offer on their new home🏠! Just one offer is all it took‼️

As a bit of background:

Katrina's mom is a childhood friend of mine👩 that grew up across the street from me in Chicago. When she found out her kids💑 were moving from Southern Illinois to Baltimore, she reached out to see what I could do. We discussed their goals and their timeline, put them in touch with a Lender💲 who got them pre-approved for a loan💰, and then contacted a colleague of mine in Baltimore who knew EXACTLY what they were looking for and where to go‼️

Quote of the day: "The competition in life is not with other people, but with the man in the mirror." - Hoss Pratt

Currently attending the #eXpShareholder Conference (virtually).

Regardless of the business vertical, numbers like this are incredible! The best part... I also OWN part of it! ❤️

Consider this; when I joined eXp Realty (about 2 years ago), we had approximately 12,000 agents. Today it was announced that we have 29,000 agents. Additionally...

✔️ 90% Year Over Year Volume Increase❗
✔️ 70% Year Over Year Transaction Increase❗
✔️ 59% Year Over Year Agent Increase❗

Something is working😁❗

For my friends in Loudoun County...

Key Market Trends:

***Sales activity continues to moderate slightly.

There were 567 sales of existing homes in Loudoun County in March, 9 fewer than a year ago. Leesburg and northern portions of Sterling had the largest declines in sales activity. While overall sales were lower, sales of townhomes/condos increased.

***Pending sales declined; the 3rd drop in the past 4 quarters.

Pending sales continue to slow down in Loudoun County. There were 682 pending sales at the end of March, a 5.9% decline from last year. This most recent decline reflects the market uncertainty related to COVID-19.

***Amid sluggish sales, home prices are surging.

Home prices continue to climb in Loudoun County despite softening sales activity. This is due to strong demand and low inventory available on the market. The median sales price jumped up 12.1% in March to $534,150.

***The supply of active listings continues to decline.

There were 711 active listings at the end of March in Loudoun County, a 26.3% drop from last year. All local markets in the County had shrinking inventories in March except Lovettsville which had 9 more listings.

As always, should you have a questions about YOUR specific market, please call or text me at(571) 242-3668 or email me at [email protected]

Pleased to have earned the coveted Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Certification from the National Association of Realtors (NAR):

"Ashburn, Virginia, May 8, 2020 — James T. Trautz Jr. with eXp Realty, LLC has been awarded the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional Certification. The National Association of Realtors® awards the MRP certification to Realtors® who help military personnel, veterans and their families find housing that lets them make the best use of their benefits and serves the unique needs of military life.

When military staff and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster and less stressful. Realtors® who earn this certification know to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans.

'Service members may only have a couple of days to view properties and make an offer, and others might be deployed at the time and need someone who can represent them while they’re away. Working with a Realtor® who understands the singular complications that arise with military service can help make the home buying process simpler, faster and less stressful,' said National Association of Realtors® President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs, Florida. 'The MRP certification lets home buyers and sellers know that a Realtor® knows the ins and outs of military housing benefits, such as zero-down payment loans, and the specific needs service members and veterans have when searching for their new home.'

The certification provides NAR’s members with resources to accommodate current and former military service members at any stage of their military career and is an approved elective for NAR’s Accredited Buyers Representative designation. To earn the MRP certification, Realtors must be in good standing with NAR; complete the MRP Certification Core Course; complete a reading providing background information on the military, included acronyms and understanding military culture; and complete two webinars."

For more information about the MRP certification, visit www.militaryrelocationpro.org
