Hi, I'm Ken Jelinek here at REMAX of Eagle River.
I specialize in First Time Home SELLERS, but I also assist Home BUYERS of all kinds! Residential selling and buying
decisions are too big to allow to fail due to insufficient information! With that in mind, allow me to earn the right to be
YOUR Realtor for many years to come! To contact me immediately, call me on my CELL PHONE: 907-441-9505
Ken, How's the Market? Seasonal Inventory dropped - remains cyclical.
Current Inventory as of: Tuesday, Sept 20, 2016:
...942(was 1015) Active units, Selling 244/month = 3.9 (was 4.2) months inventory of Single Family Homes
...432(was 434) Active units, Selling 86/month = 5.02 (was 4.99) months inventory of Condos - all types
...136(was 139) Active units, Selling 30/month = 4.5 (was 4.8) months inventory of Income Properties
...351 (was 351) Active units, Selling 10.6/month = 33 (was 32) months inventory of Vacant Residential Land
...311(was 341) Active units, Selling 52/month = 6.0 (was 6.7) months inventory of Homes over $450,000
...132(was 152) Active units, Selling 17.5/mo = 7.5 (was 8.9) months inventory of Homes over $600,000
The National Association of Realtors says 6 month's inventory is "Balanced".
Less than 6 months may favor sellers. More than 6 months may favor buyers!
I believe "lower inventory" reflects the new "Balanced Market" because the world's
2008 financial problems kicked all speculation and "let's see" to the curb and
people are STAYING PUT unless they have to move or can't pass up a great deal!
ALERT: Single Family Homes under $450,000 are holding VERY STRONG
with a low 3.3 months inventory. Single Family Homes over $600,000 are
definitely in favor of buyers with 7.5 months inventory but more balanced.
This information alone affects everything from pricing strategy to the days on
market to the concessions and/or repairs you may have to address. Many
in real estate believe that the downward market forces (jobs, population,
military, oil prices, politics) will continue to swing the market - though it is
not there just yet - in favor of buyers. However, I'll say it here first regarding
our national elections: if one particular candidate wins, then I believe Energy
Independence, Beefed up Military, Infrastructure, Beefed up Police, Replacement
of Nationalized Healthcare, and adjusting the Balance of international Trade
Deals will all affect - positively - Alaska and Anchorage. I predict that the
"perception" of a better economy and politics and pride will have a very
positive and powerful effect on our economy! But it is important to always
remember that the real estate market is always both a Beauty Contest and a
Talent Show. You must have the "Beauty" to get people to see the inside. And
then the house needs the "Talent" of quality to nudge people to want to make
an offer, or at least get more serious. More importantly, you must be priced right.
