Winter Is Coming… 5 Reasons to Sell Now!

People across the country are beginning to think about what their life will look like next year. It happens every fall; we ponder whether we should relocate to a different part of the country to find better year-round weather, or perhaps move across the state for better job opportunities. Homeowners in this situation must consider whether they should sell their house now or wait.

現在大家都開始為明年計畫,每年秋天,許多人會考慮是否該搬遷到有著更好天氣的地區,或是搬家到其他州獲得更好的就業機會,許多屋主也在考慮是否該賣屋還是再等等。

If you are one of these potential sellers, here are five important reasons to sell now instead of in the dead of winter.

如果您是正在考慮賣屋的屋主,以下是應該現在就開始賣屋,而不是繼續等待的五個重要理由。

1. Demand Is Strong
需求強大

The latest Realtors’ Confidence Index from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains very strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing and able to purchase… and are in the market right now!

來自全國房地產經紀人協會(NAR)最新的房地產信託指數顯示,在全國絕大多數地區,買方需求依然非常強大,這些買家都已經準備好,願意並能夠馬上購買… 他們現在正在市場上尋找房屋!

Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.

應該多多利用目前市場上的買家活躍性。

2. There Is Less Competition Now
現在的競爭較少

According to NAR’s latest Existing Home Sales Report, the supply of homes for sale is still under the 6-month supply that is needed for a normal housing market (which is 4.5-months).

根據NAR最新的現有房屋銷售報告,出售房屋仍然處在正常的房屋市場所需的6個月以下的供應量(目前供應量為4.5個月)。

This means, in most areas, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers in that market. This is good news for home prices. However, additional inventory is about to come to market.

這意味著,在大多數地區,並沒有足夠的房屋出售,以滿足該市場的買家數量,這是對房價來說的好消息,然而冬天過庫存量即將上升。

There is a pent-up desire for many homeowners to move, as they were unable to sell over the last few years because of a negative equity situation. Homeowners are now seeing a return to positive equity as real estate values have increased over the last two years. Many of these homes will be coming to the market soon.

有許多房主想要搬家,卻在過去幾年因為負資產情況無法賣屋,由於房價在過去兩年中升漲,屋主們有了正資產,許多房屋很快就會上市出售。

Also, as builders regain confidence in the market, new construction of single-family homes is projected to continue to increase, reaching historic levels in 2017. Last month’s new home sales numbers show that many buyers who have not been able to find their dream homes within the existing inventory have turned to new construction to fulfill their needs.

此外,隨著建商重拾對市場的信心,建商新屋將繼續增加,達到歷史水平在2017年。上個月的新房銷售數據顯示,許多買家誰還沒有能夠找到他們的夢想家園在現有庫存內已轉向新建築以滿足其需求。

The choices buyers have will continue to increase. Don’t wait until all this other inventory of homes comes to market before you sell.

買家的選擇將繼續增加。不要等到所有這些其他庫存的庫存在你賣之前上市。

3. The Process Will Be Quicker
過程會更快

Fannie Mae announced that they anticipate an acceleration in home sales that will surpass 2007’s pace. As the market heats up, banks will be inundated with loan inquiries causing closing timelines to lengthen. Selling now will make the process quicker & simpler.

房利美宣布他們預計房屋銷售將超過2007年的步伐持續加速,隨著市場升溫,銀行將收到許多的貸款查詢與申請,導致房屋銷售與成交時間延長,現在賣屋將使過程更快速更簡單。

4. There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move Up
現在正是搬到更適合房屋的好時機

If you are moving up to a larger, more expensive home, consider doing it now. Prices are projected to appreciate by 5.2% over the next year, according to CoreLogic. If you are moving to a higher-priced home, it will wind up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait.

如果您想搬到一個更大更貴的家,現在正是好時機,根據CoreLogic表示,房價預計明年將升值5.2%,如果您搬到一個更高價位的房屋,再繼續等待下去只會使您花費更多的金錢(頭期款和房貸皆會更高)。

According to Freddie Mac’s latest report, you can also lock-in your 30-year housing expense with an interest rate around 3.57% right now. Interest rates are projected to increase moderately over the next 12 months. Even a small increase in rate will have a big impact on your housing cost.

根據Freddie Mac的最新報告,現在您可以鎖定30年房貸利率約3.57%,利率預計在未來12個月會適度增長,即使是小幅的增長也會對您的住屋成本產生很大的影響。

5. It’s Time to Move On with Your Life
現在是過您想要生活的時候了

Look at the reason you decided to sell in the first place and determine whether it is worth waiting. Is money more important than being with family? Is money more important than your health? Is money more important than having the freedom to go on with your life the way you think you should?

想想看您想要賣屋的原因,並確認是否值得繼續等下去,金錢比家庭更重要嗎?金錢把健康更重要嗎?金錢比擁有生活的自由更重要嗎?

Only you know the answers to the questions above. You have the power to take control of the situation by putting your home on the market. Perhaps the time has come for you and your family to move on and start living the life you desire.

只有您知道這些問題的答案,您有權利以賣屋來控制您想要的生活,也許您和家人是應該過可望生活的時候了。

That is what is truly important.
這才是真正最重要的。
