Will Your Current House Fit Your Needs in Retirement?

Will Your Current House Fit Your Needs in Retirement? | MyKCM

As more and more baby boomers enter retirement age, the question of whether or not to sell their homes and move will become a hot topic. In today’s housing market climate, with low available inventory in the starter and trade-up home categories, it makes sense to evaluate your home’s ability to adapt to your needs in retirement.

According to the National Association of Exclusive Buyers Agents (NAEBA), there are 7 factors that you should consider when choosing your...

Lack of Listings Slowing Down the Market | MyKCM

As the real estate market continues to move down the road to a complete recovery, we see home values and home sales increasing while distressed sales (foreclosures and short sales) continue to fall to their lowest points in years. There is no doubt that the housing market will continue to strengthen throughout 2018.

However, there is one thing that may cause the industry to tap the brakes: a lack of housing inventory!

Here’s what a few industry experts have to say about the current inventory crisis:

25 Canyon Rd. San Anselmo - Just Sold

25 Canyon San Anselmo sold by Ary Assadi

So excited to get my clients into this beautiful 3BD/2.5BA home at just under 2,100 SF. Built in 1996 this home is absolutely turn-key. The inspections came back with absolutely no issues and the home is located in the most serene woodsy setting in the hills of San Anselmo. We initially began our search for homes in the East Bay, but quickly realized that there were betty deals to have had in Marin. Taking advantage of the slight summertime lull in the market we quickly snatched up this home for $1,200,000. I couldn't be more overjoyed for my clients who now have their new home and enough space to welcome their second child in a couple of months!

Montclair Just Sold Ary Assadi

5765 Harbord Dr. in Oakland's Montclair neighborhood was a pleasure to prepare, list and sell. My seller client had lived there for almost 20 years so prepping the home for sale took some planning, organizing and executing. First I helped her find a wonderful new and smaller home to purchase. Once the move took place we had a crew of people come to clean, paint, and stage to the home and get it ready for the market.
One lucky buyer took advantage and now owns this beautiful home. The final sales price came in at $1,160,000 and the new owner will surely makes this their home for many years...

Housing Will Not Fall Victim to Next Economic Storm

Housing Will Not Fall Victim to Next Economic Storm | MyKCM

Some experts are calling for a slowdown in the economy later this year and most economists have predicted that the next recession could only be eighteen months away. The question is, what impact will a recession have on the housing market?

Here are the opinions of several experts on the subject:

Ivy Zelman in her latest “Z Report”:

“While economic activity appears to have accelerated so far in 2018, some prominent economic forecasters have become more cautious about growth prospects for 2019 and 2020…

According to the Realtors Confidence Index from the National Association of Realtors, 61% of first-time homebuyers purchased their homes with down payments below 6% in 2017.

Many potential homebuyers believe that a 20% down payment is necessary to buy a home and have disqualified themselves without even trying, but in March, 71% of first-time buyers and 54% of all buyers put less than 20% down.
